After almost a month on Blab, I've come to realize the following.. Hangouts are for grown-ups!

Entrepreneurial Tips frpm Richard Branson
Here are some more great tips!

#WeDigMondays   let's make Monday the best day of the week for entrepreneurs!)
Entrepreneurial Tips from Richard Branson!
Ten ways to help your passion for business work even better?

I wonder if +Richard Branson digs Mondays too?

1. Forget the office
"When Im working, I dont like to waste my time. When Im on holidays, I like to waste my time a little bit. Ive always worked from home, Ive never worked from an office I work from a hammock."

2. The early bird catches the worm
"I get up quite early in the morning - maybe 6:30. I will maybe go kitesurfing, maybe play tennis, maybe go for a swim. Its the advantage of working from home and working from Necker Island."

3. Eat a real lunch
"I dont believe in sandwiches for lunch. I like to eat from my balcony. Ill have good food. Having said that, I do drink far too much tea and coffee."

4. Take risks
If you try to achieve things that people say are impossible, it does involve taking risks. People said it was impossible to take a hot air balloon around the world, and we had great adventures proving them wrong. Fortunately, we survived it. We were the lucky pilots. A lot of pilots lose their lives trying these things."

5. Plan ahead
In any adventure, we try to figure out beforehand, if we hit the water, how will we survive? How will the company survive? Luckily, we have always survived, and were here to tell the tale."

6. Screw it, just do it
"My philosophy in life is that you only live once. Live life to its fullest. Its a lot more fun. Dont say no. Thats the way Ive always approached things. As one of my book titles says, Screw It, Lets Do It."

7. Plan for the future
"One of the advantages of always taking adventure-type risks is that I have to make sure that I have a good succession plan and have lots of great people in place and have delegated well.

8. Don't waste time on unnecessary travel
"One of the advantages of working from home is that youre not wasting a couple of hours of the day commuting and travelling. By working from home, I can get people to come to me instead of having to go to them. Ive always managed to do that."

9. Delegation is key
From a very early time, when we went from one company to two companies, I realised I couldn't do everything myself. I had to learn the art of delegation and try to find people who are better than me to run the companies that wasn't that difficult!

10. Love your children
"The most important thing is to bring your kids up with tons and tons of love - lots of praise and little criticism. They should be able to talk to you about anything and have a completely open relationship.

If theres one thing that Richard Branson has taught us over the years, its that finishing this sentence is an almost impossible task. The Virgin Group Founder has broken down so many barriers, achieved so many firsts and trail-blazed in so many different sectors that its unthinkable to sum up his ac...

Advice for Entrepreneurs

In the 4 minute video, +Richard Branson​ gives us entrepreneurs some great advice. His answers to some pointed questions, gives some incredible insight as to why his Virgin brand, is one of the top ones out there.

It also helps to have fantastic hair :-)

Actually, I've always liked Richard Branson and I think his best idea was his first, naming his company "Virgin." There is nothing that doesn't sound better without the word Virgin slapped on the front of it. Virgin Potatoes. Virgin Energy Drinks. Virgin Tube Socks. Virgin Septic Tanks. Virgin Cthulhu. Okay, that last one actually makes the creepy even creepier, but the only thing Virgin doesn't make better is Olive Oil because everyone knows that if you're not getting the Extra Virgin stuff then your oil is just the slutty wanton whore of pressed vegetable fats. 

He said something in that video. I don't remember what it was, too busy ranting in the comments. Guess I'll have to watch it again.
