Even the big ones make mistakes...Get used to it and move on


You don't learn to walk by following rules...you learn by doing and falling. 

Sir Richard Branson is the puckish face of entrepreneurship. 

Branson is a high-flying daredevil that takes many risks in business. He has said ¨Yes¨ to too many little ideas in his life. Once he started Virgin Airlines...he made the mistake to try to dethrone Coca-Cola with Virgin Cola. Branson remembers this is just one of his many setbacks.

Set backs are a part of any worthwile journey.
