Happy National Entrepreneurship Week!November 17th, 2010 | Small Business | No Comments »
Did you know that President Obama proclaimed November 14 through November 20, 2010, as National Entrepreneurship Week? He also proclaimed November 19, 2010, as National Entrepreneurs’ Day. President Obama explains how “entrepreneurs embody the promise that lies at the heart of America — that if you have a good idea and work hard enough, the American dream is within your reach”. So, to all you small business owners and entrepreneurs out there, Happy Entrepreneurship Week!
In honor of Entrepreneurship Week, I’d like to share several quotations about entrepreneurship that I hope you will find inspirational, and maybe even a little funny. I have included several quotations below:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”
–Thomas Alva Edison
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great”
“To win without risk is to triumph without glory”
“The cover-your-butt mentality of the workplace will get you only so far. The follow-your-gut mentality of the entrepreneur has the potential to take you anywhere you want to go or run you right out of business–but it’s a whole lot more fun, don’t you think?”
– Bill Rancic winner on Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice”
“Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.”
“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”
