How Richard Branson Inspired Me
Richard may seem like a very successful entrepreneur and multi-billionaire who is living a high life. However, this success did not happen overnight or by chance. He started out from a humble beginning and have made multiple failed attempts at running his own businesses.
Richard never gave up even though he was already on his knees and ready to fall apart at any moment. He stood up time and time again, fighting hard to pursue his passion and became who he is today, a successful entrepreneur. Richard dared to dream and did many outrageous things that people thought was impossible or simply crazy.
