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!
