Virgin Group founder Richard Branson knows how to run a company.
Since dropping out of school at age 16 to start his first business, Branson has overseen hundreds of companies. Along the way, he's accumulated a fortune of approximately $5 billion.
The entrepreneur says the secret to success in the business world is simple: "It doesn't matter who you are, entrepreneurship boils down to having a good idea and being resourceful enough to turn it into a reality.
"Questions like 'where did you go to school?' rarely have a place in entrepreneurship — it's all about bringing ideas, with the power to change things, to life."
