Richard branson

Richard branson was born 18 July 1950  is an English entrepreneur, best known for his successful tasks known as the virgin group as well as more than 400 other companies. Richard was born in London, he went to school until the age of 13 where he dropped out because he had dyslexia.

Bransons adventure begun in in 1999 when Virgin mobile had launched. He was 9th in the Sundays Time's rich list, worth just about 3 billion dollars. Soon after formed V2 records to re-enter the music business. In 1992 Richard sold his business Virgin mobile to "EMI" for 500 million euros. Later Branson re created what most people thought was risky virgin airlines, virgin trails. The airlines first exploited in Europe and then traveled to America. Another one of his accomplishment's were later in 2007 where he became "Eco-friendly". The virgin earth challenge in the belief that history has shown that prizes of this nature encourage technological advancements for the good of mankind. The Virgin Earth Challenge will award $25 million to the individual or group who are able to demonstrate a commercially viable design which will result in the net removal of anthropogenic, atmospheric greenhouse gases each year for at least ten years without countervailing harmful effects. This removal must have long-term effects and contribute materially to the stability of the Earth's climate.

As a result Richard Branson seemed to be an unsuccessful drop out at only age 13, soon later his business' were worth over 4 billion dollars, and himself being worth 3 billion dollars.  His devoted and kind heart is what seemed to help him through all these years.
