Invest in Trust, Realize the Returns | Marissa Muller | TEDxPepperdineUniversity

In her talk, “Invest in Trust, Realize the Returns: Lessons from a 3,276-mile journey,” Marissa Muller, Global Product Marketing Lead at Tesla, shares how a solo coast-to-coast journey on a solar-powered bike taught her to trust in herself, trust in others, and allow others to trust her. Her experience reveals that when you tune into the frequency of trust you reap a powerful return. Marissa Muller is an adventurer and sustainable energy leader. She runs product marketing for Tesla’s energy products – Solarglass roof, solar panels, and Powerwall – which enables homeowners from around the world to generate and store clean energy for any time use. Marissa has been in the renewable energy industry for over a decade and started her career as a journalist in the US and Europe. She loves to tell a good story. Four years ago she built a solar bike and rode across America to fulfill a dream, test technology, and spark a conversation about sustainability. Marissa holds an MBA from IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
