At the age of just sixteen, Richard Branson created the Virgin brand that all started with Virgin Records. Forty-one years later the Virgin brand has become a multi-million conglomerate associated with over four hundred different companies.
Now Richard Branson has filmed an in-depth interview with CNBC about all aspects of his life and career - you can watch the whole show below.
Richard credits much of his success to his parents and the way in which he was brought up where his parents wanted him to do things and ‘not watch others do things’.
