Elon Musk might be everyone's favourite rich person. His car company, Tesla, is a brand that everyone seems to want to own and of course there was that time that he put one of those cars in space with his very own rocket program Space X.
If that alone isn’t the definition of cool then what is? The man seems to have the ability to do just about anything that he sets his mind to.
Obviously he is incredibly committed to his work, and right now he’s taking that to another extreme by being on the job 24/7 it seems.
This billionaire is literally spending his nights at his own factory.
Why would this man who has all he could ever want in the world want to sleep at his own factory?
The answer lies in the fact that Tesla is currently in the process of rolling out it’s newest line of cars, called the Model 3.
The Model 3 is currently behind in its production and Musk wants to be on hand at all times to help fix any issues that occur on the factory floor.
In a tweet earlier this week Musk said that he is currently sleeping at the factory and that the “car biz is hell.”
About a year ago, I asked Doug to manage both engineering & production. He agreed that Tesla needed eng & prod better aligned, so we don’t design cars that are crazy hard to build. Right now, tho, better to divide & conquer, so I’m back to sleeping at factory. Car biz is hell …
This isn’t even the first time he’s done this, when Tesla was launching its Model X car Musk apparently kept a sleeping bag by his desk so if there were any issues he could be there to assist.
So if you thought that being a billionaire was all vacations and no work Elon Musk is here to prove you wrong.
