Barbara Joyce vs. Richard Branson
Barbara and Richard are similar in the sense that they both felt a need to make others' lives better. Richard did this by making his airway better, and Barbara chose to help people directly by providing healthcare and education to those who needed it. However, they are also quite different. Richard was looking to make money from his business, which he did. Barbara just wanted to make somebody's life better. She, also, achieved this goal with It Can be Done.
