Richard Branson is one of the richest men in the UK, and he is a self-made man that had a tough start in life. If you have ever read his autobiographies, you will notice a few personality traits that seem to drive him towards success. Reading his autobiographies, you could hardly call him a lucky man, but he has driven his own success and created a unique brand that is somehow able to apply its name to anything from music to airlines.
