Screw Business As Usual

Creator: Richard Branson | Business & Economics - 2011-12-08

By that I mean that doing good is good for business. "Doing the right thing can be profitable. I will show how this works step by step in the following pages. It's the core message of this book.

Publisher: Penguin

About this book
RICHARD BRANSON, one of the world's most famous and admired business leaders, argues that it's time to turn capitalism upside down-to shift our values from an exclusive focus on profit to also caring for people, communities and the planetAs he writes: "It's a vibrant and definite sea change from the way business was always done, when financial profit was a driving force. Today, people aren't afraid to say, Screw business as usual!-and show they mean it."It's amazing how I keep coming across the same message, from bustling global cities to the townships of South Africa to small villages in India to G8 climate conferences."It's no coincidence that so many people are talking about the same thing. There's a real buzz in the air. Change is happening."People often associate me with challenges, with trying to break records while sailing the Atlantic or flying in a jet stream in a balloon or going into space with Virgin Galactic. But this book isn't just about fun and adventure and exceeding one's wildest dreams. It's a different kind of business book. It's about revolution. My message is a simple one: business as usual isn't working. In fact, business as usual is wrecking this planet. Resources are being used up; the air, the sea, the land are all heavily polluted. The poor are getting poorer. Many are dying of starvation or because they can't afford a dollar a day for lifesaving medicine."But my message is not all doom and gloom. I will describe how I think business can help fix things and create a more prosperous world for everyone. I happen to believe in business because I believe that business is a force for good. By that I mean that doing good is good for business."Doing the right thing can be profitable. I will show how this works step by step in the following pages. It's the core message of this book. I often say, 'Have fun and the money will come.' I still believe that, but now I am saying, 'Do good, have fun and the money will come.'"

The Virgin Way, Everything I Know About Leadership

Creator: Richard Branson | Business & Economics - 2014-09-09

This is a book on leadership from someone who has never read a book on leadership in his life.

Publisher: Penguin

About this book
This is a book on leadership from someone who has never read a book on leadership in his life.While building the Virgin Group over the course of forty years, Richard Branson has never shied away from tackling seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on many occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost.Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different, swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion, and the dying art of listening are key components to what his extended family of employees around the world has always dubbed (with a wink) "the Virgin Way."This unique perspective comes from a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself. He may be famous for thinking outside the box—an expression he despises—but Branson asserts that "you’ll never have to think outside the box if you refuse to let anyone build one around you."From the Trade Paperback edition.

    A solid read even in a crowded field

    I have always admired Richard Branson from a distance and what I read/heard about in the news. He's always risky yet calculating enough to be successful. Now, with this book, I can see him and his beliefs from a much more personal perspective including stories of his family and childhood. Note, though, that you won't get into in depth "how-to's" and this is more general leadership philosophy. If you're ok with that, then you won't be disappointed by this book even in the already-crowded business leadership book field. This is posted only a week or two after the Virgin Galactic test flight crash that took the life of one test pilot, and Richard's (don't call him anything more formal!) response has certainly fit with his character you read about here. While his editor let slip some misspellings like "colour" and "favourite" instead of "color" and "favorite", the rest of the book is top notch!

    A success story through hard work and being persistent...

    5/5 Alan B. Scholl (Antigua, West Indies) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Kindle Edition) I have always admired Branson's Virgin Way of getting things done, and his participation at all levels. I recall a few years back him paddling a makeshift boat during Antigua's Sailing Week, falling into the water and walking out soaking wet. But that is him, getting his hands dirty in ensuring his businesses thrive. Excellent book describing how he got to where he is.

    Not too impressed

    3/5 Amazon Customer (Highlands Ranch, CO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won't Teach You at Business School (Paperback) I read all the other Richard Branson books and this I think is the weakest of his books. I had high hopes for this book, but when I started reading it just did not live up to my expectations. It feels very light from a content perspective and is too high level (not sure about the best term to describe it) - in that regards the book title is very misleading. The book does not have a good flow and so it is more difficult (and less relaxing) to read.If you have read his other books, this one is the one to skip. While the advice in this book is solid, it's repetitive after having read the other books. And while the other books had a great connection and good flow, these "short stories" do not.Richard Branson seems like a really nice guy and his approach to business and life are simply awesome. So, buy his other books and skip this one. It is much more fun to enjoy his stories that way. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 30, 2013

    Review of the book like a virgin.

    I loved Reading the book. It gives you an inside about the life of Richard Branson and how he started his business as a Young lat.The book tells you that you can do everything you want and only the sky is the limit. But you have to fight for your dream. It is not something you can do easy and it shows that in life and in business are lots of obstacles.Every obstacle and every failure is only something you can learn from it to do it better in your next step. It gives lots of ideas what you can do as an entrepreneur as long as you focus on your goal.I enjoyed the book very much and I liked the writing style of Richard Branson. It gives you an idea what he went through when starting his business. I highly recommend the book when starting your own business as an entrepreneur.These insides that give you Richard Branson you won’t get at any business school because this is something you have to experience on your own. You might get some basic ideas in school but... 5/5 Anton Winkler Schmitt (Tlalnepantla, Mexico) - See all my reviews, February 23, 2015

    Branson Ultrasonics

    Branson 200 - works perfectly - suitable power for jewelry

    I bought this model for my hunny so she can clean her jewelry to the level that a jeweler does. Her rings and other jewelry come out looking, literally, sparkling brand new after just 5-10 minutes in this cleaner. I have used many brands of ultrasonic cleaners at work for over 30 years and have found the Branson brand to be reliable and robust, which is why I sought out this one. It is powerful enough to get the toughest dirt out of all the 'nooks and crannies'. Use a gentle surfactant for best results - liquid dish soap works well. Be sure to fill the tank up with water to the fill-line on the tank first, then add a dash of liquid soap or other jewelry cleaner - this prevents sudsing that could fool you about where the level is. It is important to keep the tank filled to the appropriate level for longevity of the ultrasonic transducer. This unit's transducer is on the left side of the tank, so the action is strongest on the left, weakest on the right - obviously,... 5/5 mjklaser (Brookline, NH) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect size, high quality

    5/5 Marty (Oakland, California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Branson Model B200 Ultrasonic Cleaner, 120V (Misc.) I was looking for ultrasonic cleaners for doing both jewelry cleaning and small metal parts in general. There are so many options on Amazon, including ones that are far less expensive than this B200. However, I decided to purchase this particular model for a few reasons. First, Branson is a company that makes very high-end scientific ultrasonic machines, so I figured I'd want their small model for a similar quality product. Second, I actually wanted a cleaner with a smaller overall footprint, that was more portable.I was not disappointed. Right out of the box, the device worked perfectly. It looks really retro (which I love), it is extremely simple to use, and it comes with a 1 year warranty from the company, which is known for their high-end ultrasonic machines. A definite good buy.

This review is from: 250 Greatest Words of Wisdom on Business, Entrepreneurship, Leadership & Management and Success from Richard Branson: Powerful Quotes and Life Lessons from Famous People (Kindle Edition) Success is not in the number of items you’ve checked off, but rather is measured by personal growth. This book holds invaluable wisdom and practical teachings on exactly what the we all need - getting ahead in life. Define what you want to learn and find someone who excels at it, whether an author, mentor or friend. Loved the definition of "life markers" which are people, places or events that mark the beginning of a transition. If you believe that age doesn't hinder growth, then this book is for you. It is definitely worth the time and money invested. This book clearly predicts my future, I'll be reading more books from this author.
