    Funny how Mr. Branson very fast moved to a few persons that really inspire me. He has increadibelly positive immage for an enterpreneur. Very few are like that.. like you can count on fingers such persons per every 5 million people or so.

    As one of the thousands of people employed by companies that RB has founded…I say thank you…
    The part where the interviewer asks “what makes Virgin different” in relation to its business’…and he reply’s “fun”….is so true…I love my job and I know that in doing it I have the 100% backing of the company…and when we entered these tough times…the first thing his company’s have done is cut Executive pays…
    This man is not just talk…he actually practices what he preaches…

    Being a dyslexic myself, i truly respect and look up to Richard Branson, when ever i felt i didn’t have a change in life (most of the time at school), i had only to look at him.

    He is an amazing human being
