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 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.

    Great insight into an alternative approach to business

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Kindle Edition) Great insight into an alternative approach to business. A brand built on the appreciation of its work force. I read a review on here that said it was very "self promoting" of the Virgin Brand, nonsense!! They asked a guy (Branson) to write a book about his experiences and he offered up real life scenarios through his eyes, which obviously means referencing Virgin brands.Very enjoyable, and a refreshing thought that you can succeed without succumbing to the corporate mold.

    Too Light - Not Well Written

    3/5 David J. Bradley, MBA (Rhode Island, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Paperback) I'm a huge fan of Richard Branson. Very interesting character, which comes out in this book. However, I imagine any of his other books would be a better choice (I haven't read others for comparison).This book is very light and not well written. It honestly felt awkward to read the multi-billionaires poorly written text. Something doesn't seem right there...I do like that the book is a quick read. You can casually read it within a few days. The stories are interesting. But there's no big substance. If you want a very quick read -- go for it. If you really want to learn something, again, I'd imagine another Branson book is a better fit.

    Screw it, Just Read it!

    5/5 Tweaker - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Kindle Edition) This book is quite short (hence Quick Reads), but it is full of sage advice for anyone at any point of their life. Each chapter starts with several aphorisms and then goes to explain their relevance to Mr Branson and subsequently to you. It also gives a glimpse at what it has taken Mr Branson to get to the position he is in now and the underlying philosophy behind his business. While it by no means tells anywhere near the full story of any of the many tales it provides sufficient for relevance to the aphorism.I really enjoyed reading this book and will certainly read it again at least once. I picked this up at a time of change in my own life and found almost everything to be relevant and mostly what I needed to hear, without frills or complicated explanations. Clear and precise, it is a good guide for living a full and rewarding life, all the while doing, or at least trying, the right thing by all.Great read. Strongly recommend it.

    Listen to an expert

    5/5 Omar - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Screw It, Let's Do It: Lessons In Life (Quick Reads) (Kindle Edition) I've always said that if you really want to learn something new go and search advice from people who are the best at what you are looking for. So... this book is a very concise but really helpful guide and anecdotes of who is considered one of the best Entrepreneurs of the world. He summons really different points of view from how he created a Magazine, his Record Company (who signed the Pistols and the Tubular Bells which is the group that created the soundtrack for The Excorcist blockbuster), his Airline Company (that strived to survive because British Ariways was very competitive to them) and even how he bought and Island!!!Not to even mention that Richard was able to interview people like John Lennon or Mick Jagger whilst in his youth.The best by so far if you want to learn on Entrepreneurship!

    Not really a page turner

    3/5 Poetic Loner - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Losing My Virginity: How I Survived, Had Fun, and Made a Fortune Doing Business My Way (Paperback) Richard Branson and his writer have written a book acurate on facts but something that doesnt really keep you grasping for the next page. He's brilliant and Nixonesque in keeping records of times, people, things that have been said, mostly for the purpose of ideas. It starts off after student magazine leading up to the formation of Virgin Records, the little shop above the shoe store and how he managed to swing the rent. There are funny parts in it, like how to advertise he had to take on a fuel company and how he kept praising their competitor as if it were them before catching his mistake. He takes risky adventures from starting an airline(majority of the book) to hot air balooning across the Atlantic then Pacific. But ultimately has to sell Virgin Music to pay off debts and in the end the rest of the company(airline mostly) is in the black with cash reserves. The book could've ended there but goes on with a diary entry chapter. Brilliant man, lackluster book.

    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?)

    Good size, good looking, powerful, doesn't use too much fluid

    As usual, I agonized over which product to buy with so many choices and so many reviews. You can go from $25 to $600 in this category.I work in research and have used Branson ultrasonic cleaners for over 30 years, not because I bought them, but because that was what was almost always in the lab. Their professional cleaners are the standard.At the end of the day, I settled on this one as a compromise between the fancy-schmancy $350 cleaner with bells and whistles and advanced cycles, but it was $350, and it was large with a lab-feel and footprint, lots of stainless steel and lots of cleaner volume. I didn't want a $35 model because I was pretty sure they would not be durable.This little unit is small, attractive, only uses a small volume of fluid, and really works. My wife cleaned a few pieces using iSonic jewelry cleaning concentrated solution, and she was shocked at how much dirt and crud ended up in the solution and how clean the pieces ended... 5/5 Wally - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 Gregg S. Nichols (Florida, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Branson Model B200 Ultrasonic Cleaner, 120V (Misc.) I've worked with the company that makes this machine. In my experience, they only make durable, reliable equipment. An ultrasonic cleaner is one of those tools you always wonder if you'll use -- and then you can't imagine trying to clean all those little parts, jewelry, etc. without it. You will not be disappointed with this machine. Don't believe it? Go ahead and get two or three cheaper ones first. After they break, but this one.
