I have to say that interviewing Richard Branson was one of the highlights of my career, and I think I’ve been in this business for a hundred years. He just has this geniune warmth and “good-guy-ness” that makes you want to just hangout with him. Also, though I’m sure he’s not complaining about his ass-loads of cash, you don’t get the sense that the money is his first priority. He pursues what he’s passionate about and has a youthful fascination with learning and discovery that is infectious. I heap thanks upon you, Richard!
PS – I’m most of the way through his book “Business Stripped Bare,” and I highly recommend it.
