Unfortunately not a business lunch.

I live in a tiny Caribbean town, I went to eat lunch on the beach today and who do I see in the restaurant but Branson. He was eating with a good friend of mine and she invited me to join them.

He is a really nice guy and seems very down to earth, we talked mostly about kiteboarding (He is right into it, that's why he's here and I've been doing it for more than 10 yrs) He invited me to do a 15 mile downwinder with them today but I have a photoshoot at 5pm so had to pass... could be one of those missed opportunities in life. We also talked F1, and real estate. I tried to just be normal and not treat him as a famous Billionaire.
He's here 'till next Saturday and said he will definitely be back as he likes it here and it's windy all the time.

It's a very quiet town so not much happens and most people don't even know who he is here, I guess that's a nice change for him (except for bastards like me)

Anyways, hope to see him again and get to know him better.

Yeah, I thought he would have been at Silverstone but apparently he is more into kiting than F1.

I find that slightly hilarious, but then again, it is his company that owns a team, and not him.
Sounds like a cool guy, and a great time you had.

So... you took any pictures?


No, that would kind of be rude in a way, I mean not really but sort of. Maybe some other time. He said he knows of my photography so I am just thinking maybe I could shoot him kiteboarding...and he could pay me like everyone else does, or sign so I can sell them.

the man has an est. 4 billion dollars.

He can literally do anything he wants, whenever he wants.

So why would he have lunch with you, of all things?

^ It was a tough one to call but the shoot has been planned for a few weeks and it's $1000 for me, also I doubt the kiteboarding company that needs the pics would think it was a very good excuse. Anyways it got cloudy early so I have to do more pics tomorrow but whatever.

I also found out he's leaving tonight, I asked him when he was leaving and he said Saturday, but I never realized that it was Saturday at the time and I guess he didn't either or he would have said 'tonight'. I hope I don't see him on TV in Silverstone tomorrow or I'll be pissed he didn't invite me to go with him on his private jet.

I'm sure he'll be back and maybe get a place here as the wind and waves were epic for his kite excursion (way better than on his private island) and he told me he really liked it here.

I don't have much of a reason for thinking this, but there's something disconcerting about his laugh. Plus, he threw a glass of water at Stephen Colbert, which I'm pretty sure gets you barred from entering the country ever again.
#28
Lol I used to work for him at Virgin mobile.

He really is an awesome guy. He tries to treat his staff well and he frequently used to pop in for visits to head offices and call centres. I was there once and we heard this helicopter and we were all like "wtf?" and one of the managers was like "Oh that's just Richard..."

Good for you though

That's really awesome, sucks how you couldn't chill with him more and get photos with him

Because he... wants to? *shocker*

My downfall was that I thought it was longer ago so went from the start backwards, and also lurked over a few titles to wonder why half of them were about America and the other half about the Bahamas...
