In this post i’m sharing 27 Richard Branson quotes on entrepreneurship.
Most likely he doesn’t need any introduction. He’s a well-known entrepreneur and the owner of the Virgin company.
A few months ago I finished reading Richard’s book “The Virgin Way“, and got so inspired by what he shared in it, that entrepreneurs can implement, that I decided to put together a set of Richard Branson quotes – all about being an entrepreneur.
Some of the quotes are from that book, and the other ones from different events or conventions.
