Zig Ziglar once said “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.” No truer words were ever spoken!
No matter how self-sufficient we as entrepreneurs think we are, there are times when we need a little something extra to kick us up a notch. And we can usually find those in the wise words of those who have done great things themselves.
So, we hope some of the following quotes can help you during the rough patches and get you back on the right path!
