Hardly but that’s what the crows are calling Richard Branson over at LinkedIn in response to Branson’s post “Career Curveballs: Embrace Change or Become Stagnant”.
Branson talks about starting Virgin Airlines and selling Virgin Records:
I’ve often joked about the best way to become a millionaire – start out as a billionaire and launch an airline! While moving from the music industry with Virgin Records to aviation with Virgin Atlantic was a huge career curveball for me personally, it was an even bigger jump for the rest of Virgin, not to mention my friends and family. We went from taking on rival labels in the charts and in the clubs to challenging global airlines in the air – and eventually in the courts!
