In most cases, people who have a lot tend to forget those who have less especially in today’s world where money and wealth have been equated to power. The world today desperately lacks enough personnel that are among the power elite to carry a torch of change. Nevertheless, there exist a few such as the veteran businessman and a humanitarian, Sir Richard Branson.
Richard Branson is the owner of the Virgin Brand, which has over 360 companies, and he is considered as a mega-success not only in America, but also in the world. At the age of 58, Richard is determined more than ever to leave the world in a better shape for the generations to come. He is now paying attention to mentorship programs for the youth and using avenues available to save lives through his experience, knowledge, human, and financial resource. He recently founded Virgin Unite, a non-profitable organization that plays a significant role in humanitarian activities.
He is not only focused on humanitarian matters, but also on entrepreneurship mentorship programs to help young and old individuals dive into business more confidently. Based on an interview with Steven Bertoni, Branson explained that his intentions were to start entrepreneurship mentorship and help people learn more about risk taking. He revealed that his goal is to make a difference at both the local and international level. With hundreds of companies under his control, Branson is comfortable handling more than one project at a time, and just like he did with his businesses, he is convinced that he will use the same approach to save the world.
