98 Inspiring and Thought Provoking Quotes for Entrepreneurs

I am a really big fan of anything motivational and I love to read an inspiring quote every morning before I start my day. Have you ever watched a movie, read a quote or a book that had a lasting impression on you and may even have changed your life? Perhaps it was something that someone said that you just needed to hear at that moment in time.
For me, quotes are the best catalysts for a change in thinking, for motivation and to give you that other perspective that you really just needed to hear.

Some days are better than others and as an Entrepreneur, you always need to keep open minded and motivated, especially when you don’t feel like it. I have put together 98 of my favorite quotes which I know will not only inspire you, but encourage you and uplift you when you need it the most.
