Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Richard Branson

by Scott Edward Walker on January 27th, 2012

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group and one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world.

In this interesting, four-minute clip, Richard shares a few solid insights for founders, including the importance of (i) being a great listener and motivator; (ii) understanding the “thin dividing line” between success and failure; and (iii) effective delegation.

I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
