Quotes from Great Entrepreneurs

  • “There are a lot of things that go into creating success. I don’t like to do just the things I like to do. I like to do things that cause the company to succeed. I don’t spend a lot of time doing my favorite activities.” ~ Michael Dell, made huge innovations with the Dell Supply Chain.

But I just never thought that we’d be the ones to help do it. And I think a lot of what it comes down to is we just cared more.” ~ Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook.
  • “Don’t be afraid to fail. Get out there and experiment and learn and fail and get a rate based on the experiences you have. Go for it and when you go for it you’ll learn what you’re capable of, what the potential is, where the opportunities are, but you can’t be afraid to fail because that’s when you learn.” ~ Michael Dell, founder of Dell Computers.
  • “Make your product easier to buy than your competition, or you will find your customers buying from them, not you.” ~  Mark Cuban. 
  • “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs, Co-founder Apple Inc.
  • “I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.” ~ Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon
