A dear friend made this happen for me. She knew that for 9 yrs Richard Branson had topped my list of people I wanted to meet after being so inspired by his autobiography. I'm so eternally grateful for the experience. At the time, Necker was Richard's primary residence. I think he's now fully moved to Moskito Island which is right next to Necker.

Richard loves babies and chatting with cute girls, which aren't normally my jam. That said, his level of hospitality and care for his guests was truly admirable and generous.
