Multi-billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk says he is “thinking of” leaving his jobs and becoming an influencer.
“thinking of quitting my jobs & becoming an influencer full-time wdyt,” the world’s richest man said in the tweet, without elaborating.
It was not immediately clear if Musk, a prolific user of the social media platform, was being serious about quitting his roles.
Musk, who also leads brain-chip startup Neuralink and infrastructure firm, The Boring Company, said during a conference call in January that he expects to be the CEO of Tesla for “several years”.
“It would be nice to have a bit more free time on my hands as opposed to just working day and night, from when I wake up to when I go to sleep 7 days a week. Pretty intense.”
Last month, he asked his followers on Twitter whether he should sell 10% of his stake in the electric car maker, to which the majority agreed. He has sold shares worth nearly US$12-billion since.
