9. “It is purpose, passion and drive that will take you over the finish line, not bundles of money. If you’re really interested in something, have done your research and have solid values then you have a great shot at success.”—Richard Branson

11. “No matter how big, small, simple or complex an idea is, get it in writing. But don’t just take notes for the sake of taking notes, go through your ideas and turn them into actionable and measurable goals. If you don’t write your ideas down, they could leave your head before you even leave the room.” –Richard Branson

12. “If you don’t write things down it’s really easy to forget what was said – and often in business it’s the little things that make a big difference to your customer. Keep a notebook in your back pocket to scribble down thoughts or feedback, and make sure you follow through on them in a timely fashion.”—Richard Branson

13. “The reason Virgin Atlanticstands out from the competition is because we notice the small details and try and make the experience unique. We take feedback seriously and it’s what makes us a great airline rather than an ok airline.”—Richard Branson

 15“I learned very early on, from Student Magazine to Virgin Records, that if you want something to happen, don’t just sit around waiting for it. Work hard, take your chances, and seize opportunities when they present themselves. Don’t give in to the fear and self-doubt and instead find ways to make it happen. Those who are bold have a higher chance of being rewarded.”—Richard Branson

16“You should always be looking for ways to make things better – including yourself. You can never know it all, and it’s so important to always be learning and developing. I find it really useful to set myself some goals and write them down. I make long-term and short-term goals, and the short-term successes keep my morale up and spur me on towards longer-term goals.”—Richard Branson

17 “Business should be a driving force in creating a better world, so if you can combine your entrepreneurial skills with a social purpose, you can have a great effect on the world. I’ve always set out in business to disrupt industries to benefit the customer and had great fun doing it.”—Richard Branson

18. “But not being able to quit your job shouldn’t mean you have to quit your dream – instead it should complement it. Some of the world’s most successful companies began as side projects, with their founders working evenings or weekends to turn their ideas into realities. Virgin is a prime example of this – all of our Virgin businesses started while we were working on something else.” –Richard Branson

 19. “Passion is the key to juggling work and business. If do what you love and love what you do you’re more likely to be successful.” –Richard Branson

Think about it this way: Attitudes are contagious… Is yours worth catching? Positive thinking is incredibly powerful tool. Simply put: positive, proactive behaviour spurs positive, proactive behaviour.”—Richard Branson

 22. “Positive people don’t just have a good day; they make it a good day. I aim for positivity by: wearing a smile at all times; looking for opportunities to see the good in the world; approaching problems in a proactive manner; phrasing my comments and conversations to reflect positive outcomes; and leading with YES! rather than no – that is, after all, how I got my nickname Dr Yes!”—Richard Branson

 23. “Keeping it simple is also a great help when it comes to communication. I am dyslexic and find it much easier to digest information in clear, concise chunks. As Einstein said, if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough. It often baffles me how much people waffle before getting to the point.”—Richard Branson

A couple of minutes of down time can help spur you back into action.” –Richard Branson

34. “It’s also important to be able to have fun at work – we spend so much of our lives working, we need to be able to laugh along the way. Virgin is a family business – we smile together when things go right and find ways to solve problems and support each other when they don’t.”—Richard Branson

35. “If you’re driven by purpose then you can enjoy what you’re doing and feel comfortable being yourself. Only by being yourself at work can you truly flourish and do your best. If you believe in what you’re doing, it makes you push to be better, to exceed expectations and drive innovation.”—Richard Branson

 36. “The mark of a good leader is being able to harness these different talents and empower people to be the best that they can be. As a leader it’s your job to build people up, not knock them down.
