"Three months of running a business or trying to set up a business and you will learn, I suspect, as much as you can learn in three years at a business school."<br />
” The airport was full of stranded passengers.Imade a few calls to charter [plane] companies and wrote on the blackboard, Virgin Atlantic, $39 single flight to Puerto Rico.” – Branson saw that no plane was coming and created a flight himself.<br />
“Finding out he had some stolen records at his first music stores they had to track down every single one all night and move them to another place.”<br />
"Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa.. and it’s about getting a balance." <br />
” More than any other element, fun is the secret of Virgin’s success.”<br />
