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.

Stuff everybody thinks they know but very few do. Highly recommended reading. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 11, 2014

    Virgin Puff Piece

    Clearly Mr. Branson is an amazing person and exceptional entrepreneur, which is evident by his success. However, a ridiculous portion of this book is really just a Virgin “puff piece”, which I found exceptionally hard to plow through. There is some sage advice and a few interesting internal Virgin stories but they are hopeless intertwined with the over the top praise of Virgin and its people.This is how I would break down the books content:- 40% a Virgin advertisement and promotion, including high praise of their “amazing management” who are continuously mentioned by name and are only seconded in their incredible abilities by Mr. Branson (at times I felt he was really writing this book for his management’s egos);- 15% recycling well known business stories (many of which Mr. Branson had no involvement in);- 5% clichés (there are really far too many in the book);- 20% Virgin war stories... 1/5 Gary Smith (Cornelius, NC USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership (Hardcover) Clearly Mr. Branson is an amazing person and exceptional entrepreneur, which is evident by his success.

    A look into the life of the worlds most famous and successful entrepreneur

    5/5 michael naylor - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Richard Branson: The Life and Business Lessons of Richard Branson (Kindle Edition) Richard Branson's life is like the ultimate "Rags to Riches" story although he didn't grow up in poverty he certainly did not come from a rich family. Now he is one of the most successful businessmen in history, he has dabbled in nearly every market that exists and even some that didn't until he came along. The Virgin brand is huge and known by nearly everyone in one form or another. A very interesting look into the life of the ultimate entrepreneur who pretty much everyone can learn something from. This is definitely a must read. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 5, 2015

    An inspiring work about an amazing man that is sure to motivate any aspiring entreprenuer

    One of the coolest business icons of his generation, I thought this book on Richard Branson would be a great addition to my library. I’m a business owner myself and I thought this book would be a perfect tool for inspiring me forward as I progressed through my own business ups and downs. I’m pleased to say that I was entirely correct. The story of Mr. Branson and his wildly charismatic approach to business was entirely engaging. From his start with The Student to the fleshing out of Virgin, I was taken aback by his unabashed forward motion, even in the face of failure. Mr. Branson has become somewhat of a model for me after reading this outstanding material. He is an outside-of-the-box thinker with a drive that few could ever reach the heights of: A perfect role-model for the aspiring entrepreneur.This book shows everything from Mr. Branson’s start and rise, to his blaring business mistakes and ultimate successes. I loved the part on Handling... 5/5 E.A. Gray (Lake Oswego, Oregon) - See all my reviews, March 6, 2015

    Learn from one of the heads of the largest business empire in the world

    5/5 Buckeyegirl - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Richard Branson: The Life and Business Lessons of Richard Branson (Kindle Edition) Richard Branson is the head of one of the largest conglomerates of all time. This book tells his story including how he started the Virgin empire at a very young age. Part of Branson's success is his unique ability to use his different businesses in a way that they will compliment each other and end up providing multiple streams of income in the same realm of industry such as travel in the airlines and holidays. This book highlights how Branson's creativity and determination has contributed to his unbridled success. In the book the author takes from Branson's experiences to show how this unconventional and eccentric man ended up being knighted and one of the richest men in Britain. His openness to new ideas and penchant for excellent customer service has been part of the formula to Virgin's overwhelming success.
