The Motivation behind Virgin Atlantic

Richard Branson

Many a frustrating travel experience left Richard Branson feeling determined to show the world how it should be done. “Screw it, let’s do it”! And so Virgin Atlantic came about in 1984.

You can read about the lessons in life he picked up along the way in his e-book (it also makes for a superb gift!) as he shares fascinating and interesting stories from his life.

Richard Branson is a great example of overcoming life’s hurdles. Despite having dyslexia, he proved that success is a mindset and if you work hard enough, you will reach your dream. He puts his success down to luck, speed, and hard work that included nights and weekends.

My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them ...

He probably inherited his entrepreneurial skills from his late mother who successfully made and sold wooden tissue boxes and bins in London. His mother passed away in January 2021 from COVID-10, at the age of 96.

I suppose the secret to bouncing back is not only to be unafraid of failures but to use them as motivational and learning tools... There's nothing wrong with making mistakes as long as you don't make the same ones over and over again

Why Richard Branson called it Virgin

Richard Brandon is known for his out-of-the-box thinking and doing. A lack of experience never discouraged him. Quite the contrary. And it is evident in the success story of Virgin Atlantic UK. And that is where the meaning of the name “Virgin” in his business group and companies comes to fruition. He and his employees were inexperienced and new to their business ventures.
