Richard Branson: Losing His Virginity

December 7, 2009 Leave a comment

Richard Branson is  Man of Mystery #1,  He is one crazy, stupid and one influential bastard.

I decided to write about him because I think he is my #1 role model and I was surprised to find out that people around me actually don’t know anything about this weirdo.


Many $$$ minded thinkers always look for Billionaires as their model. They would like to know their successful strategy, mind sets, what they eat, who do they sleep with, who do they worships and etc…  when come to this, the iconic billionaires figures will be  , or … (personally I think these are old-school people)

Very seldom people will pick Richard Branson as the subject to be reckoned as Billionaire model..

few months ago, I read his autobiography Richard Branson: Losing His Virginity

I’m not a big fan of books. But this 600 pages of autobiography was like sucking my brain. Reading his life experiences, business and ventures  is like riding a rollercoaster.. crazy and fun!

Based on countless resources, Most of the billionaires and successful entrepreneurs didn’t finish their schools or complete their university achievements. But for Richard, He had extremely poor academic results. His Maths were poor and he had reading problems during his childhood.

The biography described him as naughty, playboy, sporty, crazy and above all, ADVENTUROUS and OUTSTANDING.   Personally, I think he developed his ventures boldly and 100% using his own style.. In fact, all his crazy methodologies and stupidity resulted smashing breakthroughs.




So, when people see … ,  they will remember this  Crazy-white-beard. In fact, literary he is everywhere.. from coke, to plane , listen radio, condom , virgin train  (my current working company is providing Virgin train) to Virgin Vodka .. to bride 

Why I say he has all the commodities to become a king? basically he controls the way how most of us listen, see, feels, travel, use, dream and most importantly… to think

He is the modern Alexandra the Great and Genghis Khan.




His entrepreneurship is definitely one of the most interested kind to be modeled. Back to my home, the great Tony Fernandes is Richard’s best friend and mentor. It is obviously clear that both of them are

Nuts… they have the same sickness and style… they like to make people High by flying… (FYI, Branson owns 20% of Air Asia X)

In the book ” Richard Branson: Losing His Virginity“, Branson storied about his experience in aviation business. particularly the history regarding [ British Airways dirty tricks ] <— please click and read , how he battled the state airlines, I think (without proven facts) Branson set a strong example to all armature aviation entrepreneurs to battle with the gigantic airlines.

Everyone should know the way how Tony Fernandes  always chew MAS’s asses .

The way Branson battled BA is like how the flamboyant Howard Hughes battled Pan America Airways. and how Howard Hughes created the “H-4 Hercules”… you can watch the movie .




Branson has the reputation of participating his own advertisement and media… in a more colorful way

Such as  my favorite, Virgin Atlantic, he and Pamela Anderson err… his clothing , How he symbolically enter American market  (tank) and his recent participating in Brawn F1 .

He risked his life via life threatening adventure , traveled around the world few times+ promote his company  .




now, the so-called flamboyant entrepreneur / billionaire…

the guys want to be HIM

and the girls

want to be with HIM…


International Man of Mystery

What is  “International Man of Mystery“? Can this title weight on par together with “The Sexiest Man Alive”, “The Most seducing Woman alive”,  “The Richest Man in the world”, “The Most Influential Person of the Century” and etc..

I’m 25 years old and I was half educated from various movies. Where did the title “International Man of Mystery” come from? It is from..

Austin Powers, a fictional character which is a parody of the famous James BondJames Bond 007, but in a more flamboyant style.

How Austin Powers was dubbed “International Man of Mystery” by the people  ?

It was during 1958, in British Intelligence Academy. Austin Power was 19 years old at that time

that morning he was “shagging” with a beautiful girl.

Only the most famous person in the academy can be the International Man of Mystery. Initially, the young Dr.Evil was nominated..

The young Dr. Evil was so evil, he was arrogant, people couldn’t  stand his laughter hahaha most of the time. People threw cake to him during that day ,  renominated Austin Powers as International Man of Mystery!

After since, he became magnificent!

cut the crap!

That ceremony taught me a very important lesson. Austin Power doesn’t need to be extremely intelligent (Dr. Evil was the #1 academy achiever),  He doesn’t need the smashing handsome look to become the sexiest man alive..

James Bond used his well proportionate body to seduce ladies to bed .


But Austin used his WILDiness +  seductive body and charm enemy in a more effective way. Sometimes he manage to convince me that he is sexier than 007.  His jokes are lame but it makes people LoL.  He taught all the little boys out there (including me) to become the MAN they want to be and most importantly be PROUD of oneself.

IMPORTANT dogma by people who knows Austin power —>”  Girls want to be with Him and Man want to be Him !


Austin inspired me to look for more “Man of Mystery” out there. I decided to open a new category in FireMice, for me to write and story telling the crazy + influence people out there.

Remember! You can be one of the INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY!
