• Business Rules Richard Branson
Virgin brand creator of the basic lessons for entrepreneurs, risk, luck, money and errors
If you are an entrepreneur and do not make mistakes, you're not an entrepreneur.
The life is inevitable but death and taxes. And you can be confident in the business in one: one day everything goes according to plan.
Do not handle the case, if you do not like.
I have always regarded business as a pleasant diversion, and sometimes forget where work ends and where personal life begins.
My pride will never prevent me admit they were wrong.
I am always happy when I serve badly. No, I'm not a masochist - simply the best of my business ideas arose when I served poorly.
My willingness to listen to the opinions of others and to accept the proposals, which are better than mine, always helped me all the 40 years that I have been doing business.
The enterprise has no place conservative way of thinking, because it cuts your wings, makes you weak, unable to assess the facts and just kills.
I'm sure you can not let that stop you miserable little word "no".
For me to create a business - then do something to be proud of, to unite talented people and build something that can seriously change the lives of others.
Do not be afraid to take calculated risks. Sometimes it's better this pie in the sky than a bird in the hand.
Much better to promise less and give more, than vice versa.
For me there is nothing worse than hearing how employees apologizing for his employer.
In business, as in life, it is important to do good. I still prefer to speak with people, rather than overwriting.
My biggest achievement is that I have always tried to give people independence, the ability to feel the responsibility and was prepared to push them to ensure that they were taking a risk and achieve goals.
All my life I tried to keep myself as far as possible from the Cabinet and mainly worked in three places: at home, on a yacht, and a hammock.
Remember: no one else on his deathbed not regret that so little time spent in the office!
I never cease to be a businessman, even when I was wearing a robe, and, of course, does not add a formal suit me business skills.
In every organization of any head - from the head of department to top management - from time to time to take off his clothes and getting their hands dirty.
Notify employees in your email address and phone number. They will not bother you for no reason, but your actions will give them a strong psychological incentive: they know that if the solution to the problem will require your participation, they can turn to you anytime.
The entrepreneur should not be considered a failure negative experience: it's just a portion of the learning curve.
Luck does not come by itself: it is necessary to work on.
I never say, "I can not do that, because I do not know how it's done." I always try. And do not let silly rules stop me.
As soon as some business ceases to give pleasure, I start to think about change. Life is too short to live it with a sour face.
My motto: live fun, and the money will come. There's always something to win and something to lose. Be happy and cheerful when winning. Do not regret the loss and do not repent. Never look back - the past you would not change. But I try to learn from his mistakes.
If you are starting a new business and you ask me what lessons I could share with you, I will say: "Be decency at the conclusion of each of your transactions. Do not cheat, but going to win it. "
The most important thing that I always want to achieve - is to contain a word that someone made.
Morality - not an empty phrase in the business. In it the whole point.
Business is designed to improve and enrich the lives of people, otherwise it is not worth starting.
Make friends with your enemies - it is a good rule for both business and life.
Success, having come to you one day, will not support you for life.
You should treat people the way you feel about yourself, and even better.
True leadership is to calmly and clearly to be able to explain why it was decided this or that decision.
Money - poor success rate. Worse than just glory.
If you ask me what I believe most, I answer in my family.
I am a happy person. I always laugh. I love people, life, good jokes. I do agree that laughter ennobles the soul.
My story - just my, such a strategy would work is not for everyone.
I think I will not stop until you drop.
I firmly believe that nothing is impossible in life.
