Hello!
I can't guess what  the actual meaning of the words "by having a blast..." by Sir Richard at 01:28 is.

Hello!
'Having a blast' means 'having a really great time'.  For example:
'How was your weekend?'
'Great!  My friend and I went to a party.  We had a blast!'
 
I hope that clarifies it for you.
Best wishes,

I think entrepreneurs are important people in every country  as they have a  big role to play in their  society because doing business  can helps absorb unemployment and makes economy flourish .So every entrepreneur who takes risks and makes initiatives must be respected and encouraged to invest in other projects and be a model for youth people.
