Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 28JUN10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: entrepreneurship

I’m a huge fan of Sir Richard Branson. Not only is he the consummate entrepreneur and leader of the Virgin Group of companies, he also knows how to have fun and create excitement. From his book “Business Stripped Bare,” he writes:

“Every business, like every painting, operates under its own rules. There are many ways to run a successful company. What works once may never work again. What everyone tells you to do many just work, once. There are no rules. You learn by doing, and falling over, and it’s because you fall over that you learn to save yourself from falling over…

Most of what I have done with the Virgin Group is about my own gut instinct. I’ve never analyzed what I do in any formal way. What would be the point? In business, as in life, you never step into the same river twice.”

Sir Richard Branson knows how to make businesses thrive.

Thought for the week:

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well neither does bathing-that’s why we recommend it daily” -Zig Ziglar
