Elon Musk, the dreamer and serial entrepreneur who is making his dreams a reality. Well before his Space Adventures with SpaceX and electric/solar endeavors with Tesla – and even well before his PayPal success, he was already an ambitious entrepreneur. Elon spent his early childhood with his brother Kimbal and sister Tosca in South Africa, and at the age of 10, he developed an interest in computers. He taught himself how to program, and when he was 12 he made his first software sale—of a game he created called Blastar.
Blastar although was a primitive video game, with less features than other contemporary games of the time, such as Asteroids or Space Invaders, it showed off his innovative entrepreneurial approach to creating something and selling it.
