“At the point when I go invest energy on the plant floor or truly utilizing the vehicles or considering the rockets…that’s the place where things have gone better,” Elon Musk said at the WSJ culmination.
He finds that on the off chance that he is engaged in the subtleties of the issues, it supports assurance and his group is “more invigorated.”
Musk encouraged CEOs to “get out there on the goddamn cutting edge and show them that you give it a second thought and that you’re not simply in some extravagant office someplace.”
Musk as of late turned into the second most extravagant individual on the planet as Tesla’s stock cost and market cap have developed throughout the most recent while. He is at present worth an expected $157 billion, as per Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index.
