Elon Musk: How to Start a Business (Elon Musk 2017)

  • Elon Musk: How to Start a Business! Seriously Take Notes!
    Did you know Tesla has a zero dollar marketing budget?
    It’s true.
    Despite operating in the emerging alternate energy car market (and rampant skepticism that electric cars could even compete), Tesla had an incredibly successful IPO in 2010 and continues to struggle to produce cars fast enough to meet demand.
    It seems amazing that they’ve been able to pull that off without marketing, but Elon Musk’s explanation for their success is simple: a relentless focus on making the highest-quality cars possible.
    The vast majority of Tesla’s budget (and about 70% of Musk’s time and energy as CEO) is devoted to research and development. Musk only spends 2 to 3% of his time talking to the press, with plans to cut it down to 1% so he can free up time for - you guessed it! - more focus on engineering and design.
    Marketing done right can be extremely powerful; I’m not saying it has no place in your business model. The vast majority of us don’t have Elon Musk-level capital to fund our businesses and get them off the ground. But if it comes down to a choice between more marketing for a mediocre product, or money money spent improving product quality, I’d choose quality every time.
    Quality outlasts trends and bids for brief attention. It leaves a lasting impression - one that turns customers into lifelong fans and the most effective marketers you could dream of.

    So cringy to see people making fun of the first interviewer. She already asked good questions and then she listened. Her nodding her head saying "um yeah" simply signals she's listening and following what Elon was saying. What else do you want her to do? Let's see how you open your mouth when you get on a stage with Elon fucking Musk in front of cameras and hundreds of people. And you dumb fucks want to be successful like Musk? Not in a million years.

    I know it May transit in time and well done. I would like to decide to mention and it May well help out. As soon as your literature about computers and programming comes up you are instantly relaxed. Try a NLP therapist if possible to keep that thought into play as relaxed as possible without thinking of technology as on auto pilot. Think of software, relaxed and humble. Now think of technology shallow breathing. Now think of software again. Whilst getting someone to anchor it.
    You can keep the software thought feeling up to the left of you as you chat away about technology.
    I don't analyze I enjoy thoughts for change to help most people. It's the thoughts and feelings at the time or stage of their life which can shift the collective conscious

    This video is also a motivational video. In this case it's a company but Imagine starting something new in general in your life but somewhere down the line, stagnation starts setting in. All the tips which Elon Musk mentioned can also be used in those scenarios to just keep on going and doing whatever's necessary, owning up to one's fallacies and redoing it again and again until it yields some form of positive reinforcement or result. Thanks for this upload.
