Early Life

Branson showed entrepreneurial tendencies from an early age and his parents were supportive of his efforts. Branson launched a magazine called Student in 1966 when he was 16. The first issue debuted in January 1968. At the same time, Branson started a mail-order record company out of the basement of his local church.

His small record business was an instant success, and since his overhead was less than that of the large record stores in London, he was able to sell his copies at a lower price.  His record business became known as Virgin, in reference to the fact that everyone involved in the venture virtually no experience at all in life or business.
