A Woman Makes a Plan: Advice for a Lifetime of Adventure, Beauty, and Success


Maye Musk


When Maye Musk decided to make grey hair glamorous, she became an international model and a worldwide speaker in her sixties – a far cry from the young divorcée living in Durban to make ends meet to provide for her three children.

Things have not always been easy for the mother of South African-born entrepreneur Elon Musk. She struggled emotionally and financially as a single mom to Elon, Kimbal and Tosca, battled weight issues, and she had to restart her life and her practice as a dietician in numerous new cities over and again.

In her compelling memoir, Maye shares hard-earned wisdom and frank, practical advice on careers (the harder you work, the luckier you get), family (let those you love go their own way), health (there is no magic pill), adventure (make room for discovery, but always be ready for anything), and more.

With an indomitable spirit, Maye overcame her hardships with a no-nonsense attitude and the firm belief that while one cannot control everything, you can always make a plan.


Maye Musk dispelled all myths about ageism after embracing her grey hair and becoming an international supermodel in her sixties. Maye, who grew up in Pretoria, is also mother to visionary South African-born entrepreneur Elon Musk. She has her BSc in dietetics from the University of the Orange Free State and has run a successful nutrition business for 45 years, across 8 cities, 3 countries and 2 continents. She is an international supermodel, having modelled for major international magazines such as Vanity Fair and Vogue, and a worldwide speaker.
