Life Lessons from Sir Richard Branson

Life Lessons from Sir Richard Branson

One of the top influential business leaders that I admire is Sir Richard Branson. I knew him previously as the owner of Virgin Companies (Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, Virgin soda, and get this, Virgin Brides!).

Ask AEVA: Don’t you miss your office mates?

A former office mate (and still a friend) asked me a question via Facebook Messenger. Don’t you miss your office mates?

My virtual professional friends and I are always open to questions from aspiring virtual professionals.
