Zip2 was founded in 1995 by Musk and his brother Kimbal in Palo Alto, providing mapping and business directory services for newspapers such as the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune.

Four years later, Compaq bought Zip2 for $307 million. In 1999, this was the largest amount paid to buy a technology company. According to Ashley Vance’s 2015 book “Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future,” the deal earned Elon and his brother $22 million and $15 million, respectively.

Branden Spikes – a systems engineer at Zip2 also gave an interview for “Elon Musk Story”. He described Musk as an “unusual person” for often working late and then sleeping under the desk. He also calls his former boss “the one who knows everything”.

In fact, this isn’t the first time Musk has been criticized for his workaholics. At about 1 a.m. on February 23, 2020, Musk suddenly requested to hold a meeting of all SpaceX factory employees in Boca Chica (USA).

One of the reasons the billionaire held this meeting was to want to know why the factory is not working 24/7 to produce the Starship missile system. The SpaceX team explained that they needed more people to change shifts. As a result, just two days later, the company recruited 252 more workers to meet Musk’s request.

After this incident and some stories about Musk working more than 100 hours a week, some people think that he is a boss, perhaps not everyone wants to be a subordinate because of the strict requirements on working hours.

Returning to the series “Elon Musk Story”, Mrs. Maye Musk – Elon’s mother, said that when Elon was young, she had a hard time waking up her son in the morning because Elon used to stay up all night reading books. She said she even changed Elon’s clothes while he was sleeping to save time.

Currently, Musk runs Tesla and SpaceX along with two smaller startups, Neuralink and Boring Company.

In 2019, he was ranked as the most inspirational leader in technology. However, in a podcast episode last year, the billionaire offered some thought-provoking advice for young people.

According to him, they should not choose a career based on whether it can bring fame or wealth. Instead, the Tesla CEO advises them to focus on something much simpler than finding work they’re good at and that match their skillset. “Don’t try to be a leader just for the sake of the position,” Musk said.
