This is a quote i am not particularly fond of. And to a big extent i do disagree with Sir. Branson, however i do agree that for rich people this quote is accurate.
Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.Richard Branson
This quote however, raises few valid questions, that i will have to research and address in a couple independent articles:
Question 1: Are good business opportunities frequent ?
Question 2: Is wealth a key to access business opportunities ?
I assume that Sir Richard means good business opportunities, not scam or ideas with no valid logic.
If so, let’s be honest here, if good business opportunities would be so frequent to the average person, as Sir. Richard Branson states, then you wouldn’t find a single employed person on the face of earth. Every single person would become a businessman / businesswoman!
Sir Branson’s quote applies only to the very rich, able to transform any idea into a business opportunity, the average man can not do so!
The average joe and jane, will have to invest from living capital, to find themselves in competition with many other small entrepreneurs, while the very rich can bypass all the small entrepreneurs and create brands more easily, by throwing lots of money on the projects.
