Richard Branson is a well-known businessman throughout the world, but I think that while most people know his name, they might not actually know a whole lot about him. This includes me, as I knew that he was the founder of The Virgin Group, but not much else.
After listening to Richard Branson’s new autobiography “Finding My Virginity”, I have gained a lot of respect for both Branson the person and Branson the businessman. In “Finding My Virginity”, Branson discusses some of the most impactful moments from his life, as well as his experience founding so many companies.
Throughout the book, Branson talks about ventures such as Virgin Galactic, Virgin Blue, Virgin Mobile, Virgin Trains, etc.; it is amazing that Branson has been able to found so many successful companies in wide ranging industries. While you can get lucky building a company, it is impossible to get lucky as many times as Branson has successfully built companies.
In addition to the companies that Branson has built, he also seems like a genuinely good person. He talks about his family life and his goals in helping change the world, and I think he has done a great job in carrying out a lot of his most important missions. There is a lot of wisdom and good advice throughout “Finding My Virginity”. Whether you are interested in learning more about Branson the person or just want to hear what he has to say, “Finding My Virginity” is worth a read!

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
