“When people keep telling you that you can’t do a thing, you kind of like to try it.” -Margaret Chase Smith


“Most things fail. The ones who succeed, pick up from their failure, figure out what went wrong, figure out how to validate an idea better with an audience, and then go back and try again.” -James Altucher

“It takes money to make money…. To me, this little phrase is one of the biggest and most dangerous lies out there… It is a convenient excuse to simply not try to succeed.

The amount of effort and commitment required will be extraordinary. But that’s the way it goes. You’re trying to break out of the ordinary… So an ordinary effort won’t cut it….  It is much easier to give up. It is much easier to say, ‘It takes money to make money’, and never try.

Don’t ever catch yourself saying, ‘It takes money to make money.’  It doesn’t… It takes a great idea and the willingness to make it happen.” -David Eifrig

“The worst you can do is try to compete with the other seven billion people on this planet…. I am not good enough to compete with 7 billion other people on the planet. If you think of a new way to help people, you no longer have to compete with 7 billion other people.” -James Altucher
