Finding My Virginity

by Richard Branson

Finding My Virginity

Richard Branson

Overview

One of the biggest lessons we have to re-learn as adults is that play is important. As we grow older, we progressively forget to have fun and get caught up in the seriousness of work, finding a life partner, and taking care of a family. Besides making our lives more enjoyable, a sense of play also helps us deal with our anxiety. It can help us improve ourselves on different levels.

Take Richard Branson, for example. This billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist is the perfect representation of how approaching everything with a sense of play improves not only the journey, but also the outcome. He's started all of his business ventures from a position of: 'How could I make this fun?' And it worked.

Now, as he reflects back on his past 20 years in business in Finding My Virginity, it becomes apparent that this approach has greatly shaped his business philosophy. In the follow-up biography to Losing My Virginity, which was written in 1998, he walks us through different companies of the Virgin Empire and how they came to be.
