When Liz Pabon in her book
The MavHERick Mind
defined a leader as
“someone that is willing to do what other won’t
and do so with empathy and understanding,”
I thought of Richard Branson’s first airline seat sale.

He and many other passengers
were stranded after a flight got cancelled.
Instead of waiting for someone else
to figure out how to get him to his destination,
Richard Branson took the lead,
chartering a plane and
selling the extra seats.

Everyone on that flight could have done the same.
They didn’t.
Only Richard Branson did
and, I would venture,
he is the only one now a billionaire.
