100 Dyslexics in 150 Words or Less. Richard Branson. Born on 07/18/1950, in England. He struggled at school because of dyslexia until 16, when he dropped out to start “Student,” a publication for young people covering news from pop culture to the Vietnam War.
He started a mail-order record business. In 1970, Virgin Records with groups like Sex Pistols, Genesis, and The Rolling Stones.
When American Airlines canceled his flight to the Virgin Islands, he charted a plane and sold the seats at $39.00. Staring “Virgin Atlantic Airlines.” Now there are over 40 Virgin companies, from mobile services to Virgin Galactic.
As a dyslexic myself, I know that everyone living with dyslexia can also thrive with it. In fact, it has been such a positive force in my life. Richard Branson
