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.

    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.

    Inspirational Read for Would Be Entrepreneurs

    5/5 Dudley McFuddles - 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) I originally bought this book in order to learn basics of how to start my own business. While the book really isn't useful for the purpose of learning detailed steps about how to start your own company, Richard Branson's energetic life story definitely will serve as an inspiration to any would-be entrepreneur and does paint the picture of a man who struggled against the odds to grow his business from a student-run newsletter to an international airline company and more.Would definitely recommend as a source of inspirational reading and to get a feel for some of the struggles that a multi-billionare businessman encountered throughout the life of his business. This book will give you a sincere appreciation for a very charismatic and energetic man who served the needs of society, accomplished daredevil feats, and made a fortune in the meantime.

    Branson forever

    I had one of Richard Branson's book sitting on my shelf for 2.5 years until I finally picked it up and started reading. I could not put the book down. Once I was done I ordered this one and the same thing happened. I could not stop reading.Now I usually read only business books of some sort, I am clearly part of his target audience, but I even my wife now shows interest in reading this book.What I like about the book? Richard Branson's style of writing makes it easy to read this book. He is very honest and upfront with quite a few things. I find this book to be extraordinary. The way how he built the Virgin empire is impressive. This is not some CEO who got rich on cashing stock options. RB is a hard worker who likes to have fun and along the way he built a 'few' businesses (a few hundred that is). This autobiography is almost more like a novel, but then it is not. It is motivating and inspiring. It provides lots of business related tips and tricks, and then... 5/5 Amazon Customer (Highlands Ranch, CO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
