Background on Branson
The Dyslexic Branson has had an amazing and lustrous career. After quitting high school, he went ahead to establish his first business, Student magazine at the age of 15. Not long after, he co-founded the Virgin record store, which successfully transitioned into a record label. Mike Oldfield, was the first artist that was signed to the Virgin Records and his 15 million copies selling album Tubular Bell made an appearance on the soundtrack of The Exorcist. Branson took his business partners unaware when he declared his intention to delve into the airline industry after a highly decorated 10-year stint in business.
Over 50 years after his initial venture, Branson is the billionaire and chairman of the Virgin Group and he has chaired over 500 companies during this period - with his Virgin brand featuring in over 200 of them. Along with his wife Joan, he resides in the paradise known as the Necker Island.
An Island Paradise for Entreprenuers
At 28, Richard Branson discovered an uninhabited 74-acre piece of land. He went on to broker a deal in 1978 to buy it for a bargain price of around US$180,000 and later transformed it into a luxurious and extravagant resort. Presently, if you happen to have US$65,000 for pleasure, you can rent one of the 15-room property for a night and spoil yourself.
Necker Island draws stars from far and wide and those who have been widely echoed to have enjoyed a vacation on the island includes Hollywood celebrities like Eddie Murphy, Kate Winslet, Robert De Niro and Geena Davis; The late Diana, Princess of Wales; supermodel Kate Moss; in addition to statesmen such as Jimmy Carter, Tony Blair, Nelson Mandela and co-founder of Google, Larry Page, who also had his lavish marriage ceremony in 2007 on the island.
At this point, it is safe to conclude that Necker is perhaps the most exclusive and world-class resort in the world.
Hear a personal account of the experience:
