Sir Richard Branson is the most exciting and personable businessman alive. He has achieved what most young professionals could only dream of: incredible wealth, fame, and acknowledgment, all the while still managing to have a good time.

Sir Richard is a flamboyant British billionaire that has built his company (Virgin) into one of the world's biggest brands. He's brash and isn't afraid to take risks!

There are few businessmen who have been as flamboyant -- or as successful. He is the founder of the Virgin Music label, Virgin Atlantic Airways, and Virgin Cola. He has unorthodox methods when it comes to doing business, but they work. And chances are that no one has had as much fun on the road to becoming a billionaire than Branson did.

His insatiable desire to push the boundaries of common business practices has made him take on industry giants like British Airways and Coca-Cola.

For a businessman, when is a career considered accomplished? Making $100 million, $1 billion, or changing the world? Sir Richard Branson has done all those things. He has written a book: Losing My Virginity, he is ranked among the 10 best businessmen of England, has a net worth of $1.7 billion, and is close friends with The Rolling Stones all while running a huge company. He is as cool as they come.
