Elon Musk

I love nothing more in life than someone who follows their dreams with relentless determination & single-minded focus.  And heck, if they can make a mint while doing it all the better.  Elon Musk is a visionary with a capital V.  I first spotted him looking for love in Forbes Life a few months ago & most recently he was profiled on 60 Minutes as his company SpaceX made history on May 25th by being the first private company to successfully launch & dock a cargo ship to the International Space Station.  As if cofounding PayPal, producing the first fully electric sports car under his company Tesla Motors & his recent historical space launch weren't enough, Elon wants space travel to be an option for us non-astronauts in the near future.  Can you imagine?!  He dreams big & makes things happen (he was even the real life inspiration for genius inventor Tony Sparks, aka "Iron Man").  My favorite quote: "I don't ever give up.  I mean, I'd have to be dead or completely incapacitated."  Keep this guy on your radar screen- his swagger is going to have us all visiting Mars in no time.
