Well, no WONDER he has so much money!! LOL!!

Oh, Sure. Elon Musk is a genius. But, he also doesn’t throw his money away on pesky things — like a mortgage.

In a recent video interview with Chris Anderson, head conference organizer for TED, Musk spilled the tea on part of his personal life.

I don’t even own a place right now, I’m literally staying at friends’ places.

He says that when he travels for TESLA related business, he floats around to different spare bedrooms.

I mean, most richy rich people would spring for a spare house or at least a fancy hotel when they travel. But, NOT Elon.

If I travel to the Bay Area, which is where most of Tesla’s engineering is, I basically rotate through friends’ spare bedrooms.

Elon is worth a staggering — are you ready for this number? — $251 Billion. Yes, I said BILLION.

I can’t even fathom that amount of money!

Musk is aware that there is a trend for people to be offended by the rich. Billionaires are historically a bit frivolous with their money — or at least it appears that way.

People also have a problem with the fact that they have to pay a relatively low tax bill. Well, I mean, their taxes are HUGE. But, comparatively, it is a lower percentage of their income.

For sure, it would be very problematic if I was spending billions of dollars a year in personal consumption, but that is not the case

Get this. Not only is he homeless, he doesn’t really take vacations, and he doesn’t own a yacht — which one might expect of a super billionaire.

Now, Elon DOES own a private jet, but that is to make his life easier. He has to travel a bunch for work, and it’s easier than flying commercial.

Fun Fact: You can track Elon Musk’s jet on Twitter.

It’s not as though my personal consumption is high. I mean, the one exception is the plane, but if I don’t use the plane then I have less hours to work.

Elon is KNOWN for being a bit frugal with his spending habits.

Back in 2021, Insider reported that Musk was thought to be renting a tiny prefab home owned by SpaceX. The entire thing only costs $50,000, and he’s just fine living in the tiny digs.

Grimes (Claire Boucher), Elon’s on-again, off-again girlfriend has even gone on record saying that “Bro lives at times below the poverty line.

Like, bro wouldn’t even get a new mattress.” This was back when they were both living in Los Angeles. Her side of the mattress had a hole in it. When she raised the issue, he suggested they replace his mattress with the one at her house.

So, maybe that’s the key to wealth. Sell the house, and move in with friends.

Oh, yeah, you might also want to be a super genius and invent hella cool things.
