A business genius who always impressed me was Steve Jobs, his life dedicated to creating concepts and putting them into action is proverbial: Apple and the company’s spin-off products, such as the iMac, iPod, iPhone, and the iPad, prove it.

Then there is Elon Musk, who has built robust, solid, down-to-earth, credible companies like Tesla and PayPal.

Musk Created a celestial Sci-Fi company like SpaceX, which will put a man on Mars one very distant day. But which can generate many discoveries and innovations in the meantime for those many years. Great ideas, all undoubtedly.

Then there’s Elon’s wild, bluffing side, brought to light in the Twitter case.

After several months of artifices, magicians’ sleight of hand, bids, and statements on social media, Musk almost recognized that he was not right.

And therefore, he will pay the sum previously agreed with the leaders of Twitter.

For that reason, I think Elon is more of a salesman/ businessman than a genius, like Jobs.

He intended to pay less than agreed, delaying maneuvers, changing the timing, and creating many appearances of strength that have now made him give up.

In the following article, I will delve into other arguments that show why I believe Musk is a giant businessman, not a genius like Steve Jobs mentioned above.
