: Time’s ‘Most Influential’ list includes Tim Cook, Elon Musk and Naomi Osaka


Time released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People featuring some of the world’s top business leaders, including Tesla’s

Elon Musk and Apple CEO

Tim Cook.

Musk, who launched several projects between his companies Tesla and SpaceX, was in the news a lot in 2021. SpaceX was awarded a $2.9 billion NASA contract to bring astronauts to the moon, and is sending four civilians into Earth’s orbit on Wednesday as part of its latest launch.

The blurbs for Time’s 100 Most Influential People were written by other leaders celebrities — Musk’s was written by Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington.

Tim Cook, who this week hosted Apple’s Fall event where he revealed the iPhone 13 lineup as well as a larger Apple Watch, was part of Time’s list once again.

As the leader of one of the biggest companies in the world, Cook has spearheaded Apple’s explosive growth. Since he took over as CEO in 2011, Apple’s stock has jumped nearly 1,000%.

Cook’s blurb was written by Nike

founder Phil Knight.

Also part of the list was tennis star Naomi Osaka. In 2021, Osaka won the Australian Open and became the highest-paid female athletes in the world.

Outside of her successful tennis career, Osaka has deals with Nike, SweetgreenBarbie and Nissan, among many others — Osaka also recently said that she is moving toward investing in cryptocurrency.
