Richard Branson

Billionaire Richard Branson struggled in school and dropped out at age 16 - a decision that ultimately lead to creation of Virgin Records. His entrepreneurial projects started in the music industry and expanded into other sectors. Branson is also known for his adventurous spirit and sporting achievements, including crossing oceans in a hot air balloon. Says Branson, “Being dyslexic can actually help in the outside world. I see some things clearer than other people do because I have to simplify things to help me and that has helped others.”
