Some funny/pithy quotes from Virgin founder Richard Branson at TED last weekend. For example, despite running a $25-billion company, the dyslexic and accounting-challenged Branson struggles with the whole gross/net thing:
“I’m dyslexic and would have failed an IQ test. In business, I donâ€™t know the difference between net and gross. It makes the board meetings interesting.”
Q: The $25B is gross, right?
A: Well, I hope it’s net.
And on Virgin Brides:
Q: Virgin Brides. What went wrong?
A: We could not find any customers.
