To make it in the entrepreneurial world, you need to "listen more than you talk," says self-made billionaire Richard Branson.
"Nobody learned anything by hearing themselves speak," the Virgin Group founder writes in a LinkedIn post.
"Wherever I go, I try to spend as much time as possible listening to the people I meet. … I am endlessly surprised by what new and useful information I can gather just by keeping my ears open."
Branson isn't the only billionaire who says the most successful entrepreneurs have excellent listening skills.
