… He’s more entrepreneur than CEO
Alan Kay, an early originator of the personal computer, once said, ‘The best way to predict the future is to invent it.’ While others talk about what someone else might create, Musk goes out and does it. As a true entrepreneur, he puts his own money on the line. He is always all-in.
When you invest in a company run by an entrepreneur like Elon, you are investing in the mindset and approach that an entrepreneur brings to the table as much as you are valuing the net present value of future cash flows. That is not typical for public companies that are overwhelmingly run by hired CEOS.
My advice for Elon is simple: Be yourself. Be true to your mission. Respect your investors. Ignore your critics.
