Richard Branson is one of the world’s most high profile billionaires. His 40 year career spreads across air travel, mobile, financial services, hospitality and space travel.

With a net worth of $5 billion, he tells Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, “I think it’s very important to use your money to tackle issues you feel could make a difference in the world.” And that’s exactly what he’s doing. After ten years of trying to fulfill his dreams of space travel, he says the Virgin Galactic will get his family on a rocket by September of 2014.
