One of the most popular contemporary entrepreneurs, philanthropists and billionaires is Elon Musk. He is 46 years old and his fortune is estimated at about 13.1 billion dollars. He has 5 sons with 50% care, doubly married. His second wife is Talulah Riley, with whom he divorced and married again. Born in Africa, his father was an engineer and his mother a nutritionist. When he was 10 years old he learned how to program. At the age of 12 he sold his first program. When he was 17 years old he emigrated to Canada, to the city where his mother’s family lived. He decided to start studying physics, but dropped out after a few days to start Zip2 with his brother. After four years he sold the company for $307 million. His next undertaking was an online payment system – PayPal, which was initially created under the name X.com. In 2002 he was sold, and Musk had about 11% of shares at that time, which gave him a revenue of 180 million dollars.
