    I was hoping there would be a thread for business quotes on here, here is one
    "I'd rather have 1% of the effort of 100 men than 100% of my own"

    J Paul Getty the first documented billionaire

    Why self employment?

    "If you don't build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs" - Tony Gaskins

    I'm from the Rich Dad, Poor Dad school of thinking so the idea is to move from an employee to self-employed and eventually to a business owner and/or investor.

    another good one, keep em coming, it's all about mindset, top business people have a different way of thinking completely to other people or professionals, a study was conducted into this by robert kiyosaki I think, It's in one of his books

    and No happy person only eats salad, I just made this one, I don't know if it makes sense but was basically elaborating the fact that Everyone needs to let loose sometimes ;) Can't work 24/7, A happy and successful person knows the balance between work and fun/rest afterall that is what we work for - Family and Friends - don't ever let work/ money take you away from them

    Ok so I've had this saved as my PC wallpaper for ages...

    I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. –Donald Trump

    Nice Maevla (just realised I think I've been spelling your name incorrectly ever since I joined the forums I usually do 'Mavela') , Whatever ones opinion on donald trump is, he is an example to anyone looking to get somewhere, been bankrupt twice I think! He is the face of my company aswell, he once said he'd never endorse a company that isn't his own but then changed his mind

    I like Donald Trump - says a lot of stuff just as it is, and he has vision - you can't take that away from him

    You could if you forced him into poverty, I reckon he would actually struggle with no income to make a success of any business (assuming name change and plastic surgery so people could not recognise him.)
    His comment about how hard it was for him starting up, only getting a 'small' loan of 1 MILLION dollars from his father kind of tickled me.
