Business Quotations

A collection of inspiring and motivating Business Quotations.

Starting a business is easy, but running a successful business takes lots of work and determination.

Most statistics will tell you 25% of all new businesses fail by the end of the first year. Those that survive, half will fail by year five. That's not very inspiring and I've been on both sides of the statistics. I closed a business after just a few months, a couple barely made it to one year, and others I've run successfully for 10 years.

In order to succeed you can't let any one failure hold you down. If you fail, that's ok it's an opportunity to learn. Look at what happened, see what went wrong and what you could have done differently. Then also look at your successes and learn why they worked, what you did right, and how you can repeat it. Don't count on luck, learn from your experiences and take action.

This website is a business that I built and have successfully run since 2008. I followed my passion in choosing to share Inspirational Quotes and didn't let the statistics hold me back. Now I have a successful website that I enjoy working on, doesn't monopolize my time, and earns me a nice income.

Every great endeavor begins with a first step. Use the following quotations to inspire and motivate yourself towards taking your first step towards success. Enjoy this page of Business Quotations.
