I genitori spesso danno degli ottimi consigli, ma nel caso di Elon Musk, forse non così tanto. Il miliardario ha fatto diversi affari di successo negli ultimi anni che lo hanno incoronato il titolo di uno degli uomini più ricchi del mondo con un enorme patrimonio netto di $ 271,3 miliardi, secondo Forbes. Nel 2000, Musk ha co-fondato Paypal che in seguito è diventato un business di grande successo per lui e pochi anni dopo è diventato il controverso CEO di Tesla da lì, le sue altre iniziative imprenditoriali includevano SolarCity e Space X, per TIME.

While it's no surprise Musk can start a business, he says it hasn't always been easy and he's learned the best way to go about it is to not have a plan per se. "I had a business plan way back in the Zip2 days," he said during an interview with CNBC. "But these things are always wrong, so I just didn't bother with business plans after that."

According to the New York Times, on April 25 Musk sought to acquire Twitter for about $44 billion, adding it to one of his latest business ventures. As of May 17, per CNBC, the Twitter deal is on pause. Even though the entrepreneur felt like it was a good idea, maybe he should have listened to his mother, who voiced her reservations about it. 

Maye Musk was against some of Elon Musk's businesses

Speaking candidly on Today, in an interview with Hoda and Jenna, Maye Musk revealed she hasn't always liked Elon Musk's business ideas, or how hard he pushes himself when he is working. Maye admitted she advised her son not to buy Twitter along with a slew of his other larger-than-life ordeals. "I told him not to do an electric car, as well as rockets and he didn't listen to me," she told Hoda and Jenna. But, just like most kids, he didn't listen.

Maye added that while she had no problems with Elon starting Tesla, at the time, she did however feel her son needed to take a step back from work. "He worked so hard, he needed a break," she said. Elon was working around the clock with solar energy, electric cars and rockets which his mom believed to be too much at once. "I said, just choose one so that you don't work so hard."

However, just like Maye, a lot of people also shared her same testament when it came to Elon buying Twitter. "I can think of a million other things I could spend $44 billion on and the bird app isn't one of them," one user wrote. "I don't believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company," another said. However, despite the critics, Elon will do what he wants to do.
