Where Hopes & Dreams Become Real on Breakout Teams” (Old-School Flava)

What will cost around $200,000 and leave you almost breathless? That’s a trip into space as a “tourist astronaut.” This vision is moving closer to reality with space flight pre-orders so far of $70 million dollars from 580 individuals. Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic blends business and pleasure into a dream flight.

It’s a long time coming with a few more milestones to cross. Branson, the serial-entrepreneur is forging ahead and building partnerships. His company recently announced the hotel venue and veteran chef who’ll service clients visiting the spaceport launch site in New Mexico. This will boost the local economy.

The space flight cost includes pre-flight training. This prepares passengers for the exhilaration of the trip. Not everybody has that kind of money. But anybody having put a dream in flight or a business in motion knows it takes some specialty training to get going. This is preparation for climbing to the next level.

There’ve been a few delays with the vision rollout. Branson’s team says it’s to ensure efficiency and safety. So they’ve continued a rigorous series of testing. With dream/biz startup there’re delays too. There’s also the testing of faith, skill and commitment. These delays help ensure readiness for greatness.

Branson has seen his share of biz startups and project hiccups. The company’s vision of becoming the first commercial spaceline remains on track. The passengers will enjoy an “out-of-the-seat, zero-gravity” experience. That’s a good way to describe dreams and biz ventures that produce trailblazing results.

Cost of $20K leaves some penny-less? A trip to space that leaves you breathless. Tourist austronaut’s the next it-thing. A vision moving closer to a rich dad’s fling. Pre-orders so far of $70 million dollars. From 580 regular folks and space scholars. Richard Branson’s dream of business and pleasure followers.

A long time concept in the making. A few more milestones for the breaking. Branson as serial-entrepreneur whiz. Forging ahead in partnership biz. Company picks hotel as their preferred inn. For local business economy it’s a win. Veteran chef to spice-up the taste. So that client visits don’t go to waste.

Space flight cost includes pre-training. With drills and lessons even if it’s raining. Prepares passengers for trip exhilaration. Souring into the skies short of space exploration. True, not many have that kind of cash. But dreams and biz startups don’t happen in a flash. It takes a next-level climb to a bigger stash.

A few delays in rollout efficiency. Branson’s team wants to ensure safety. With a robust series of pre-flight testing. Things take longer than the asking. Dreams and biz visions have delays too. A testing of your faith, skills and being true. Delays that ensure launch readiness. As a pre-cursor to reaching greatness.

Branson’s seen his share of startups. Along with setbacks and project hiccups. Company’s commercial spaceline a first. Remains on track, no ways worst. Passengers will enjoy “out-of-seat” ride. Then a zero-gravity pre-return glide. A good way to describe dream biz ventures. That produce trailblazing adventures.  

Tip: A trailblazing biz innovation is to a dream as winning is to a team. It makes for an exhilarating experience.

Sir Richard Branson To Launch an Out-of-World Experience in Space Flight

Where Love Beats Fear in Upping Our Game This Year” (Old-School Flava)

After winning the X-Prize Spaceflight competition in 2004 with SpaceShipOne, Virgin Galactic upped its game in commercial space travel. That journey began eight years earlier with the vision of British Billionaire Sir Richard Branson and others. In 2014 he plans to launch an out-of-world experience in flight.

NBC Universal and its network of entertainment outlets have announced a partnership to promote the events leading up to the first commercial spaceflight next year. This ‘where were you moment’ will feature Branson and his kids among six other civilians aboard SpaceShipTwo. It’s a dream long in the making.

The journey from vision to reality is what many experience in living their dreams. The American dream is filled with examples of those who pursued greater opportunity. Many left their homeland without much to show. A driving force has been channeling a sense of purpose by turning an idea into an action plan.

In U.S. history we had the gold rush. That was part of the Western migration of people looking to secure land and get natural resources in hand. Then we had the Industrial Revolution where many experienced the home-buying rush. Now we’re in a phase of the business ‘brand rush’ defined by the social revolution.

Many a dream got started by those far less-wealthy than Branson. What exists in passion often matters more than what’s found in money. Branson and others know that a dream starts off with a deep-down rush of inner juices. So, like him, maybe 2014 is the year for an out-of-world experience in dream flight.

Many leaving homeland for another shore. Channeling purpose as a driving force. Turning idea into action-plan course.

U.S. history had the gold rush. Western migration with the land crush. Natural resources had people looking. Before the Industrial Revolution was cooking. A time many saw rush in home-buying. Heading north with family left crying. Now it’s the ‘brand rush’ biz phase. Defined by social revolution craze.

Many a dream started small. By those with little-or-nothing at all. Found in passion not just for your honey. Matters more than what’s found in money. Branson and others are in the know. A dream makes rush of inner juices flow. Maybe 2014 the year to get it right. With an out-of-world experience in dream flight.

Tip: Upping your game means seeing your dreams for the passion that it is and keeping your eyes on the prize in the world of biz.
