Thursday, July 31, 2014

Being an entrepreneur; is an incredible experience… but it isn’t always easy. An adventure? Definitely. All sunshine and rainbows? Not so much. 

So where do you turn when you’re feeling the weight of the entrepreneurial world on your shoulders? When you need some sort of a motivational pick-me-up? For me, quotes are the key. 

Here are 15 motivating quotes for business women who have pushed the boundaries: 

[adsenseyu1]Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your path - Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got – Janis Joplin 

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake - Marie Beyon Ray, author 

Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away - Barbara De Angelis, relationship consultant, speaker and author, TV personality

If you are committed to creating value and if you aren’t afraid of 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 - Candice Carpenter, founder of iVillage.com
People don’t take opportunities because the timing is bad, the financial side unsecure. Too many people are overanalyzing. Sometimes you just have to go for it – Michelle Zatly, Co-founder of SoundFlare

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow – Mary Anne Radmacher

Nobody talks about entrepreneurship as a survival, but that’s exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking. Running that first shop taught me business is not financial science; it’s about trading: buying and selling – Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop

Don’t just stand for the success of other women – insist on it – Gail Blanke, President and CEO, Lifedesigns

Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live – Anne Sweeney (President of Walt Disney)
If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped – Melinda Gates (Philanthropist) 

Life-fulfilling work is never about the money – when you feel true passion for something, you instinctively find ways to nurture it - Eileen Fisher, fashion designer

If you are committed to creating value and if you aren’t afraid of 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 -  Candice Carpenter, founder of iVillage.com

Next time, ask: what’s the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it’s personal. And the world won’t end … And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don’t miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you … And at last you’ll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking – Audre Lorde 

Now, get out there and kick butt -  Stella McCartney, fashion designer
