    Richard Branson was one of the very first entrepreneurs who gave me a challenging view into the world of becoming an entrepreneur. The question at that point was, “was I ready”. After a few years of this “calling”. Challenging, but its worth it!

    Awesome post! Seems Richard had strong family back ground from most of his quotes being about his family. I like that. How ever my favorite quote is no. 73 about change that it is personal. i have learned that if you want to change anything in your life you have to personally take responsibility and make the change you want to see.

    Richard Branson was one of the very first entrepreneurs who gave me a challenging view into the world of becoming an entrepreneur. The question at that point was, “was I ready”. After a few years of this “calling”. Challenging, but its worth it!

    Awesome post! Seems Richard had strong family back ground from most of his quotes being about his family. I like that. How ever my favorite quote is no. 73 about change that it is personal. i have learned that if you want to change anything in your life you have to personally take responsibility and make the change you want to see.
