Today I have a confession to make I’m going on holiday for two weeks and I have been thinking about what to do for my loyal readers while I’m enjoying myself on Sardinia one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea, here is my solution.
I will try to keep you entertained with quotations of better people than myself to keep your entrepreneurial sprit up. Speaking of entrepreneurial, I will start with quotations about entrepreneurs.
My first quote is from Terri Bowersock, a US furniture manufacturer, who was forced into business by red-tape, figures:
The truth is I started my own company because I could not fill out a job application.
This one is from Mr. Entrepreneur himself:
I’m Richard Branson, I’m eighteen and I run a magazine that’s doing something really useful for young people.
Peter de Savary had the following to say about entrepreneurs:
You can never be an entrepreneur, if you’re afraid of losing money. It’s like being a pilot who is afraid of bad weather.
Bernie Eccleston, F1 promotor, has this insight:
First get in, then get rich, then get respectable.
Very difficult to get three out of three here, it’s like having the podium all to yourself. Moving on – J.Paul getty the über-entrepreneur has this to add:
No one can possibly achieve any real and lasting success or “get rich” in business by being a conformist.
My last quote of today is by James Edward Hanson, a British entrepreneur:
Successful entrepreneurs judge correctly the need for change, then do something about it.
More tomorrow and the day after and …..
