Entrepreneurial all-stars in the tech and engineering fields are rapidly becoming the new generation celebrity role model, and thank heavens (or the Cloud) for that. Their creative genius is rapidly re-shaping human existence as we know it, with the common goal of making the world a better and more convenient place. The cover of Forbes is the new Wheaties box.

Musk’s creative spirit knows literally no earthly bounds. Want to take your ideas out of this stratosphere? Better ask yourself, “WWMD?” or “What would Musk Do?"
