Richard Branson: A Journey of Resilience and Creativity

Our story starts with a young, bright-eyed Richard Branson, who felt a bit out of place in school. He was not stupid, just different. His mind wasn’t wired for conventional learning, and his dyslexia meant he found traditional schoolwork overwhelming. Yet, this didn’t stop him from feeling the glow of determination in his heart.

Richard said, “If I go back to when I was a 15-year-old and I couldn’t do the sort of basic school stuff, my brain wasn’t wired for conventional learning of things that I wasn’t interested in.” So, Richard, at just 15, decided to do something fresh, bold, and a bit nerve-racking. He left school and started a magazine.
