My top 10 quotes on teamwork

Many people think that an entrepreneur is someone who operates alone, overcoming challenges and bringing their idea to market through sheer force of personality. This is completely inaccurate. Few entrepreneurs - scratch that - almost nobody ever achieved anything worthwhile without help. To be successful in business, you need to connect and collaborate and delegate – you need teamwork. The fundamental driver of our success at Virgin has, and will always be, our people working together.
