Sometimes he goes against the advice of the M. This book is in fact dedicated to convincing the reader that creating a quality business is a really good time Jan 30, David McClendon, Sr rated it it was amazing. Can every chancellor? Feb 17, Annmarie Annie Kostyk rated it really liked it. And here it was. The rest of the time, however, reading can feel like a chore.
As the business has got bigger and spread across the globe, a lot is dealt with by short notes. Engage your emotions at work.
Your instincts and emotions are there to help you. They are there to make things easier. Even in a big business like the Virgin Group, I sit down now and again and sign every single cheque that goes out, and I ask my managing directors to do the same. For a month.
As a small-business person, you must immerse yourself per cent in everything and learn about the ins and outs of every single department. This is how business leadership is achieved. There are no short cuts. We could all learn a lot from a man who went from nothing to billionaire super-star.
The Virgin Group apart from Virgin Trains is a great company. One of the things I really like about them is how the let the managers of subsidiaries operate as entrepreneurs but still provide a safety net of experts that the managers can contact for advice. Sep 07, Pierre rated it liked it.
Business Stripped Bare is a book I struggled to enjoy. However, although there are certainly pa Business Stripped Bare is a book I struggled to enjoy. However, although there are certainly passages rich in interesting information littered throughout the book, these are unfortunately overshadowed by large segments in which it feels like you are stuck in a room, listening to Richard Branson endlessly bragging about his great achievements and unparalleled address book.
Branson is by all measures exceptional. Years before Elon Musk so decisively disrupted the automotive and space industries - two building blocks of the US industrial powerhouse - in the mid s and early s, Branson's Virgin Group took on the huge challenge of creating a trans-Atlantic airline, a mainline British train line, and a telecoms group almost simultaneously, and largely succeeded in fundamentally changing these three sectors for the better.
But perhaps his most impressive achievement has been maintaining his Virgin brand's identity throughout all of his ventures. It is something that Branson acknowledges has been key to his Group's success, and Business Stripped Bare 's strongest moments are when he describes how he achieved this feat.
The rest of the time, however, reading can feel like a chore. Here is how the majority of passages in the book are structured: He then details which great people helped him to achieve his objectives - often, this feels like nothing more than Branson bragging about the amazing people he knows, and does not actually add anything to the narrative.
The point being made is that picking the right people, who are a good fit in terms of skills but also of personality, is key to success in any business; once that point is made, must we really have every one of Branson's partners listed to us?
Finally, a great deal of passages include one or multiple anecdotes of Branson's antics and partying. Again, we get it: Business Stripped Bare feels more like a missed opportunity than anything else. It's a shame, as I felt there was more to learn from the process of overcoming challenges, as well as the mistakes Virgin made and how the Group learned from them, than the book gives us.

A bit dated [, updated ] but the hindsight only adds to the wisdom shared from the man who is the only person in the world to lead 8 different businesses from scratch to billion dollar status, and the fastest to ever get to billion dollar status; he shares his insights on organization development, branding, business ethics, trusting people, and fun.
We've come to expect successful people to be ruthless. In Sir Richard's own words, business is extremely competitive but you don't have to be mean. What matter most is whether you've created something special - whether you've made a real difference in people's lives.
Branson comes across as a mixture between a very down-to-earth guy and a complete dick. As advice for entrepreneurs go, it's better than most. Yes, it's loaded with platitudes, but he doesn't hesitate to tell it lik Branson comes across as a mixture between a very down-to-earth guy and a complete dick.
Yes, it's loaded with platitudes, but he doesn't hesitate to tell it like it is and he's very aware that he's not selling a guaranteed formula for success, he's explaining a mindset that may, if you're lucky, work for you. Jan 31, Utpal Kalita rated it really liked it. A really interesting book.
It provides a great insight into how the business functions. Sir Branson has indeed narrated his experience, a topsy-turvy one, in excellent way. The best part of the book ,which i liked, is however the ending chapters where he concentrates a lot on being socially conscious and being more environment friendly. His efforts towards environmental sustainability is noteworthy.

The book is greatly detailed and Sir Branson tries to explain how he tries to keep intact businesses by focusing on the values of the brand. Sep 02, Achyuth Kumar rated it it was amazing. For quite some time, I've been trying to find out which type of leader I want to be, whom I most resemble in my inbuilt management style.
I am elated to finally have found out the person in none other than Richard Branson! His leadership style of hiring great people, creating great teams and letting them do what they were hired to do is inspiring. He's the type of leader who wants everyone with him to succeed, and is unafraid to give them the freedom, power, responsibility and appropriate reward For quite some time, I've been trying to find out which type of leader I want to be, whom I most resemble in my inbuilt management style.

Feb 26, Tanya rated it it was amazing. Rather than a "how to" book, this is a lovely collection of annecdotes and stories with morals along the way.
I "read" the Bolinda audiobook and I have to say the Australian actor that read it actually had me thinking it was Richard himself reading it as he has a soft English accent. Yes, I am a big fan of Richard, having met him many years ago at one of his famous parties that he refers to in this book, but I defy you to read this and not become a fan of this down to earth, hard working, hard p Rather than a "how to" book, this is a lovely collection of annecdotes and stories with morals along the way.
Yes, I am a big fan of Richard, having met him many years ago at one of his famous parties that he refers to in this book, but I defy you to read this and not become a fan of this down to earth, hard working, hard playing, honest and philanthropic success story.
There is so much one can learn about starting and running a business, building a brand, being a good leader, learning from others, taking risks and making a positive difference in the world by reading this book. I loved the stories and lessons in it and i highly recommend it to entrepreneurs and friends.
Thank you Richard Bransob. Mar 24, Ania Radosiewicz rated it it was ok. Might be because of the cheap microphone while Branson had been recording it at his house or maybe postproduction inexperience - either way, really hard to understand what he is trying to say. Especially if English is not your first language. Oct 29, Simon Semelin rated it liked it. En person som diversifierar.
Jan 13, Louis rated it really liked it. Firstly really enjoyed that Richard Branson read the audio book. Enjoyed the further insights into what makes Virgin a success and the financial crisis, with a section about Virgin Money and Northern Rock's assets.
Mar 05, Stephanie rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is very refreshing. Richard Branson has the right attitude to life, business and people. Very interesting insight into what he believes makes good business and how to be utterly human while creating it.

Jul 31, Yves rated it really liked it Shelves: Well-written this book leans towards sharing the truth behind the business practices that caused Virgin the brand to become global. What is the seminal phrase that drops out of this book?
Nov 17, Kenna Reed rated it really liked it. Richard Branson has worked hard to be the carefree entrepreneur that he is. Entertaining, informative. Read it to get inside his head - read it to get ahead yourself. Jan 28, John rated it liked it Shelves: Alright, but wouldn't recommend. Dec 16, Tanja rated it it was amazing. I found it very inspirational! Such a motivative book! Jan 14, Will Chou rated it really liked it.
Tons of value bombs. The last parts were dull because he mainly talked about philanthropy. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers Also Enjoyed. About Richard Branson. Richard Branson. Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson is an English business magnate, best known for his Virgin brand of over companies.
Branson's first successful business venture was at age 16, when he published a magazine called Student. Come round, I really want to talk to you. He really did.
It turned out that the club was a money pit, and the owner was desperate to off-load it on to the first likely-looking target that crossed his line of vision. In the early hours of the following morning, I shook hands on a deal that made me owner and proprietor of a roof garden on Kensington High Street.
And as it turned out I didn't lose my shirt over it we let people in with jeans! I was last there on 29 September , launching the first, hardback edition of this book. The publishers wanted me to say a few words. The headlines that day had given me perfect material for the launch of a book of business advice. We had reached one of the great and memorable milestones of the current global recession.
It staggers me that banks worldwide have failed to protect against the downside, and it angers me and just about everybody else that, rich and poor alike, we're having to pick up after them.
But we have to. We need to make banking trustworthy again. We have a stark choice: My audience buzzed. They squirmed. They stared into their outstretched palms - and a deep, expectant silence descended. Okay, I thought, this is weird - and I ploughed on. What I said then - and it's repeated again and again in this book - is my first rule of business, and if you take nothing else from this book, take this: In business, as in life, risks are essential.
Take no risks, and you will not succeed; take moderation to extremes in your personal life, and you won't even truly live. Before you can take a risk, however, you have to understand that risk.
