Musk was an intelligent reader from a very young age. He would spend, on average, 10 hours a day reading science fiction novels and anything else he could get his hands on.

Elon’s interest in technology started evolving when he was just 10 years old. His efforts were not in vain, then when he was 12 years old, he managed to develop his own video game and sell its code for the respectable amount of 500 US dollars.

He Landed His First Internship
While in college, Elon made a habit of calling executives he read about in magazines and asking them to have lunch with him. Indeed, it was a good idea and this bold stunt landed him his very first internship at the Bank of Nova Scotia. His experience there was particularly useful, as years later he would go on to launch his own online finance business.
