Lessons from Sir Richard Branson

Sir Richard Branson gave us some important lessons from his story that we can use in our home business. 

First, turn your weakness into a strength. Sir Richard's weakness was his dyslexia. Instead of believing what he's teachers thought of him, he went to the library to work on his reading skills. 

Branson also said, that his dyslexia was a gift because it taught him to simplify things. He learned to be concise and taught his team and employees to get to the point. It made him more productive.

If you have a weakness, how can you turn it into a strength that can impact people for the better?

Second, embrace failure. Richard Branson failed more times than he could count. But, within each failure, he learned and adapted.

There is no such thing as failure. You with win or you learn.

Third, challenge yourself. Sir Richard's empire started very small. He kept asking himself what could he do to make it bigger and better to make a bigger impact.

That's the beauty of a home business. You can start small and scale it to grow into an empire that can impact people around the world. Sir Richard LOVES home business entrepreneurs.
