Richard Branson, a billionaire who came from nothing
A wonderful story about a man who achieved the impossible heights. Richard Branson is an English business tycoon and philanthropist who owns the Virgin Group. Starting with Virgin Records, the Virgin group has had more than 400 companies under its umbrella to date. A serial entrepreneur, Branson has led an extraordinary life full of ups and downs. He has embraced his moments of success, struggle and with his indefatigable spirit, he has turned his failures into stepping stones for success.
The iconic Virgin Records was his first venture, with its humble beginnings as a record shop in Oxfordshire, England. Eventually, his efforts in music led him to establish Virgin Atlantic and bring all his companies under the umbrella of Virgin Group. And today, at the age of 67, he is going strong and continues to expand his more than fifty-year-old legacy.
