Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Business , Insights

Running a business is like riding on a roller coaster. Business Entrepreneurship is creativity and management in un-ending motion. And although it is fun and exciting, there will be times when you’ll be scared and feel powerless. During the bad times there isn’t much you can do, other than to keep on pushing forward.

So in that spirit, here are 101 quotes that will motivate you to push forward.

  1. The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer. – Nolan Bushnell
