Zhang Xin and Elon Musk live in different countries and run very different businesses but what ties them together is that their empires they have built leaves a significant legacy that is not marked just by wealth but by the impact + contributions to humanity.
What is your businesses legacy?
Imagine taking action like Elon Musk when he decided to help Puerto Rico rebuild their energy grid after the devastation of Hurricane Maria in 2017. His first project there was to restore power to a children’s hospital. The decision to take on this project shifted Tesla’s commercial plans to fund helping Puerto Rico. This was a labour of love dedicated to humanity that added to Musk’s and Tesla’s legacy.
