Jeff Bezos   Amazon says:                                                                                                         “Work hard, have fun, and make history. The single most important thing is to focus obsessively on the customer.

Richard Branson Virgin Group Limited
“No profit is worth the worry of being caught doing something illegal. When people are put into positions slightly above what they would expect, they are apt to excel.”

Thomas J. Burrell  Burrell Communication Group – Advertising
The important thing concerning life and work is to enjoy yourself and continue to work. I know Life is a journey, not a destination. That’s also true in business – your objectives keep moving.
Communications are most successful if they can reflect consumers’ values back to them in ways that strike an emotional chord – i.e emotional envelopes to deliver key messages about the client’s product.
If you give a consumer a snapshot where he could see himself as he really is and the way he wants to be portrayed  people really respond to it. The emotionalism translates into behaviour in the marketplace.

Candice Carpenter  iVillage
“Success is about creating value.
If you are committed to creating value, and if you aren’t afraid of the hard times, obstacles become utterly unimportant. A nuisance, perhaps, but with no real power. The world respects creation. People will get out of your way.
People don’t grow if you are soft with them. You catapult people forward by being extremely blunt.”

Debbi Fields  Mrs Fields Original Cookies Inc
“Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it. “Good enough” never is good enough”.

King Camp Gillette  Gillette Company – Efficiency and Independence
“Competition is the root of all evil. Doing away with it would eliminate Injustice, poverty and crime.”

Berry Gordy  Motown – Soul to the World
“There aren’t enough people who care about the future. They are too busy worrying about today and what they can grab now.”

John H. Johnson EBONY & Johnson Publishing Company
“Once you achieve a small dream and make a small success, it gives you confidence to go onto the next step.”

Robert L. Johnson BET Holdings Inc
“Nobody is going to hand deliver anything to you. You’ve got to do what you can do for yourself, and have a lot of confidence that you can do it.”

Ray Kroc McDonalds
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.”

“Spike” Shelton Jackson Lee  40 Acres and a Mule – Filmist and Entrepreneur
“Start grooming people to own businesses. Then you can start doing what you want.”

Anita Roddick  The Body Shop Inc
“One of the greatest successes of entrepreneurship is to find out what is wanted. If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”

Russell Simmons  Rush Communications Inc
“Passion is what keeps an entrepreneur going when the going gets tough.”

Sam Walton  WalMart
“No matter what kind of business you own, motivating yourself and your employees is very important; because Individuals don’t win, Teams do!!!”

Oprah Winfrey  Harpo Inc
“A lot of emphasis has been placed on the money than needed to be.”

Steve Wozniak & Steve Jobs  Apple Computers
“Idealistic Perspective – that is doing something with the highest quality, doing it right the first time, – and this would really be cheaper than having to go back and do it again.”

  1. Really love the one by Ray Kroc:
    “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
    Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
    Genius will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
    Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.”

    When I become a successful entrepreneur, my Number 1 tip will probably be:
    “Go after your good passions, live as if you cannot fail!”
