Do you think that Richard Branson was ‘all work, no play’ person? Surprisingly, he suggests: If you are doing your work, have fun, enjoy your work and money will follow!

In 1997, Branson travelled the world in hot air balloon. Before leaving, he left a message for his two kids Holly & Sam: LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL, ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF IT, LOVE AND LOOK AFTER MUM.

Branson’s suggestion: Don’t waste time, enjoy, have fun and love your family….

There are ups and downs in life and business is not always fun.

Second lesson: Set challenging goals.

Richard Branson ‘owns’ a whole Island: Necker Island. Was it easy to buy? Was he having enough money? No!

He managed to set a goal to buy the Island and he bought it through his business income……

Owner of Island asked for 3 million pounds and Branson offered him 150,000 pounds….Finally, after few months, Branson bought it for 180,000 pounds only…..

How was Virgin Air line’s idea came to Branson mind? Watch out for posts on this blog soon. Till then, see Mr. Branson’s Necker Island – a perfect place to spend holidays!
