“He (Seth Goden) says, quite correctly, that most people who buy books on entrepreneurship never get beyond the dreaming stage because ‘deep down inside, they don’t think they have what it takes to succeed’.  I don’t know if that is the most common fear of starting a business.  I wish it were.  But I’m afraid too many entrepreneurs have the opposite problem.  They don’t realize they don’t have what they need to succeed….  The solution to that fear is to put your plan on hold and acquire the experience to know what you need to know.” -Mark Ford

“How to increase your wealth one decimal point at a time:  Develop a financially valuable skill.  A financially valuable skill is a skill that will help you climb the wealth ladder one step at a time.  It is a skill that will put you in the mix whenever the opportunity to acquire wealth appears.

There are not many financially valuable skills.  In fact, there are basically only four: marketing, selling, coming up with profitable ideas, and managing profits.” -Mark Ford

“It is very difficult to acquire wealth if you increase your spending every time your income goes up.” -Mark Ford

“That which we acquire with the most difficulty we retain the longest; as those who have earned a fortune are usually more careful of it than those who have inherited one.” -Charles Caleb Colton
