Richard Branson – the name is not unknown in the world of business and success. Branson, one of the most successful businessmen in the world has one quality that attracts the rookies towards him like a magnet – staying human while raring to go.
Richard Branson is known for his phenomenal rise from running a student magazine to steering the operations of Virgin Atlantic. The billionaire who makes his team take extravagant vacations on his very own Necker Island understands the value of hard work and dedication. While there are many other successful business honchos who carry their own charisma, Branson and Bransonism are a cut apart.

There is no way you are going to have a bad day when it begins with a little bit of Bransonism.
