Sir Richard Branson hits the waves with President Obama I recall my best Branson experience

Live, learn, laugh and take chances – Sandra Jane

 

I was working for Timothy Khan which was probably one of the most fun, exciting and totally unpredictable jobs I have ever had.

Having said that I learned more in those years than I did during my entire formal education. It was truly confidence building experience that gave me the ability to work out of the box for which I am most grateful. constantly being thrown into the unknown, learning how to stay above water and truly loving my challenges. For an inexperienced British girl from a sheltered background it was a blessing.

After all these years we still laugh at the time Sir Richard Branson called the office, announced himself, I laughed and said “yes and I am the Queen of England”.  Sir Branson burst into a belly laugh, announced himself again and I realized it really was him.  I giggled, apologized and connected the call.

What prompted the call is what truly still today this day impresses me and I can fully understand why President Obama would enjoy the company of Sir Branson. 170207-richard-branson-barack-obama-1105a_79a49398d7bd554a187eec4b0b103886.nbcnews-fp-360-360

Timothy was trying to get to an Indy Car race from London to Mexico City for a driver he was sponsoring Ryan Hunter-Reay.  While there was a direct British Airways flight he choose to take Virgin Atlantic giving him few hours in Los Angeles for quick meetings at the airport and catching a connection to Mexico City.

Upon boarding his flight in a sold out Upper Class he realized his seat did not recline, imagine London to Los Angles and your Upper Class seat won’t recline.  Things did not get better only worse, as when it was time to dine the table was also broken. Now if you know Timothy then you will know this simply was not going to do.

When Timothy finally arrived at Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City he asked the front desk for a their letterhead and wrote a hand written note to Sir Branson.  The response was swift.

When Timothy did take the call, Sir Branson’s opening line was “oops”, and offered a round trip Upper Class seat on his next trip. To live, learn, laugh and take chances that is truly Sir Branson.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Paris Tonight on CBS Meet Model Rachelle Denison

The motto of this story is always keep your eyes open for what is around you as you never know what you will discover.

Discovering Rachelle was all about making a U-turn. While on my way to Paris for Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taping I walked right past Rachelle doing a photo shoot. Having passed her I thought to myself come on Tim, lets check out what’s up and turned around. What I found was a pleasant surprise.
I instantly knew Rachelle had it when she discovered she had no pockets in her blazer and decided instead to hold on to the jacket for effect.

Learn more about Rachelle her thoughts on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show later this week on my upcoming podcast.

Give Rachelle a follow and tune in to CBS at 10pm EST for the gig from Paris.
