Twitter’s Elon Musk Versus Our Clients: One Fascinating Link They Share
We know. You’re not attempting to become the Twitter CEO or famous for your 44 billion dollars, in-process acquisition of Twitter. But, you might be someone looking for direction on how you can become successful. If so, you’ve come to the right place.
You don’t necessarily need to be on any social network, own Tesla shares, or even Twitter shares to be compared to Elon Musk. So while the stock price shares will continue to fluctuate, your success can steadily increase. Let’s break this idea down, starting with the early years of Elon Musk.
Elon Musk And His Early Years
Growing up in South Africa, Elon Musk likely had no idea the influence he would have on the world. He moved to Canada at age 17 and eventually entered the US as a transfer student, ready to attend the University of Pennsylvania.
Despite his upcoming success, the word’s Twitter shareholder, share price, or even the sound of his name were likely still far from his mind. Musk showed early entrepreneurial potential as a young child, teaching himself to code as just a kid. He sold his first game and brought in $500.
While it may have looked like he had a solid marketing strategy to run small businesses one day, his social media strategy would be more significant than he realized. Little did he know that later he’d want to set Twitter’s share price at $54.20 per share, over half of his first significant sale as a child.
Musk didn’t know he’d focus on spam bots, social media management, or engage with obligations under the merger as he sought to buy the company that is Twitter. While the terms of the merger go on and Musk has not yet been able to consummate the transaction, he knows his target audience and the products or services he wants to provide them.
So while Musk and Twitter have flooded recent news with talk of his $44 billion Twitter deal and the company’s previous CEO, Parag Agrawal, Musk started as a child in South Africa, tinkering with coding and games. What took him so far as to need regulatory approval and his deal closes to be temporarily on hold?
While Musk’s current challeng with Twitter may feel unrelatable, he faced common challenges just like the rest of us. In fact, he engaged with the same challenge as two of our clients.
Making moves this big starts with overcoming common challenges.
The Challenge Nina Meehan, Yarona Boster, And Elon Musk Have In Common
Yarona Boster and her son
Nina didn’t land just one TEDx Talk, but two. She says, “I’m feeling really great for accomplishing a goal I set for myself.”
The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, American Theatre Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Barron’s, Red Tricycle, ABC News, NBC News, and CBS News have spotlighted her work.
Both Yarona and Nina spoke at the same TEDx event: Cole Park. And while they are highly successful individuals, another noteworthy person’s talk was featured at their event—none other than Elon Musk.
Elon Musk’s TEDx Talk: Featured At TEDx Cole Park
Elon Musk gave TEDx talks in 2013, 2017, and 2022. His talk was one of the played feature talks at the event where Yarona and Nina presented. In his 2013 sit-down talk with Chris Anderson, Musk said his idea started in university when he wondered what problems are most likely to affect the future of the world or the future of humanity?
“The benefits are endless and more than I ever thought would come my way. Friendships, networking, and the community support have had such a positive and lasting effect that I jumped at added opportunities and have gained not just confidence but a feeling deep inside that this is truly where I am meant to be in my life.” –Yarona Boster, Life Coach.

The One Commonality
They were asking questions early on.
They thought ahead.
They are impacting millions.
Like Elon, Nina is an expert in her field whose award-winning theatrical work for young people has reached more than 1 million kids and adults and has toured internationally.
Each of these individuals turned their thought processes into successful TEDx talks resulting in far-reaching influence. Yet, their success begs the question, what tipping point helped them reach such high potential? How did these individuals go so far?
While each had different starting points, they didn’t let their beginnings negate their ability to dream big. Pursuing lofty goals often relies more on mindset than on the tools you have to start with.
In fact, for each of these individuals, the road to reaching their aspirations started with thinking outside the box. Changing your mindset and focusing on your dream in ways others may not think to do provides you with leverage.
The Power Of Thinking Outside The Box
Instead, he asked a question that had potentially far-reaching repercussions. This question was out of the box and how he chose to answer this question propelled him into his journey.
