Elon Musk’s Early Days: Billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has said he once converted his home into a nightclub to pay the rent. Responding to a Twitter user who cited reports that Musk was born rich, the Tesla CEO said he had rising student loans and an unusual way of paying rent during his early years. Let us tell you that Musk recently bought Twitter in a deal worth $ 44 billion.

The discussion on Twitter started with a question from a user who asked Musk, “If being born into an affluent family is to be extraordinarily successful in life then let me explain why all these rich kids go to art school, Never get a job, and get ruined.

In response, Musk said, “Yes, kids usually have less motivation to start with a lot of money than those who have nothing. When we started our first company (Zip 2) in 95 So, I had over $100k of student loans, a computer I built myself and a few thousand dollars.”

Following Musk’s reaction, Pune-based techie Pranay Pathole, who regularly communicates with Mr Musk on Twitter, alleged that some people were spreading lies that he was born rich and that his father had an emerald. There was a mine. Pathole wrote, “When starting Zip 2 you didn’t have a place to live and had to take a bath at YMCA. Also, didn’t you turn your room into a nightclub for rent while you were in college?”

To this, Elon Musk said that he paid for the rent of his house by turning it into a nightclub, and charged $5.

During his early years, Elon Musk, along with his brother Kimble, came up with Internet maps and directions services company Zip2. Later, the startup was bought by Compaq in 1999 for approximately $307 million.
