Richard Branson: Its Not About the Money

Great piece by Richard Branson in Entrepreneur.com that highlights something I am continually sharing with students. Becoming and entrepreneur is not about making money, it is about making an impact. In some cases, great wealth is built — both to the entrepreneurs, employees, investors, and society.

From Richard Branson:

For me, building a business is all about doing something to be proud of, bringing talented people together and creating something that’s going to make a real difference to other people’s lives.

A businesswoman or a businessman is not unlike an artist. What you have when you start a company is a blank canvas; you have to fill it. Just as a good artist has to get every single detail right on that canvas, a businessman or businesswoman has to get every single little thing right when first setting up in business in order to succeed. However, unlike a work of art, the business is never finished. It constantly evolves.
