Richard Branson

A high school dropout who made his fortune at the age of 16 when he founded a youth-culture magazine called “Student”. To fund his magazine, Branson had the idea to start a mail-order record company named Virgin, (now known as a famous multinational conglomerate company with multiple locations worldwide). The young entrepreneur then saw the success of his business so he decided to build a recording studio in Oxfordshire, England in 1972. With his successful ventures, Branson got his name in the line-up of business tycoons who overcame childhood struggles and may have thought that quitting school is not that bad after all.
