Sir Richard Branson’s Business Advice is Powerful in its Simplicity

Sir Richard Branson has recently posted an article that provides advice for starting a successful business. I’d argue that his five tips are just as important for continually improving an existing business.

Branson’s tips include:

  1. Listen more than you talk – listen to everyone not just the senior people
  2. Keep it simple – why overcomplicate things?
  3. Take pride in your work – celebrate the talent within your business
  4. Have fun, success will follow – enjoy the journey; be human
  5. Rip it up and start again – learn from your mistakes
