Sir Richard Branson

Entrepreneur and multi-millionaire who quit school at 16. His headmaster famously told him when he left, "Congratulations Branson. I predict that you will either go to prison or become a millionaire". Branson, a dyslexic, comments "since nobody had ever heard of dyslexia, being unable to read, write, or spell just meant that you were either stupid or lazy". He set up his first Virgin business in 1970, and has never looked back.
