How did alan sugar and richard branson start off their business empires?

i want proper answers please
Sugar was born in Hackney in London's East end. After leaving school, he started selling vegetables out of a van he had bought with his savings of £100.

Branson was educated at Scaitcliffe School (now Bishopsgate School[2]) until the age of 13, then he attended Stowe until he was 15 years old, and he began his entrepreneurial activities there by setting up Student Magazine. When he was 17, he opened a Student Advisory Centre, his first charity institution. Branson set up a record mail order business in 1970, started a record shop in Oxford Street, London shortly afterwards, and then in 1972 the record label Virgin Records with Nik Powell, opening a recording studio.

Mugging the other kids in the playground
Richard Branson started by ordering and reselling records to his schoolfriends, which he then turned into a mail order business. He then opened shops, started a recordign label, etc.

Alan Sugar started by selling vegetables from a van, and then used the proceeds from this to start a business trading electronics goods, where he rapidly got involved in having things custom manufactured.
Bloody hell - TWO REAL answers out of six? You must have walked in something this morning! By the way, I'm not deliberately scoring off of your question, because I was going to say more or less what the two respectable answerers have told you. It's just that I was amazed to see some proper answers at last. Well done!
