What’s really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that we’re alive for only a limited period of time, and we’ll spend most of our lives working.
You can hype a questionable product for a little while, but you’ll never build an enduring business.
Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets.
An entrepreneur assumes the risk and is dedicated and committed to the success of whatever he or she undertakes.
In business, the competition will bite you if you keep running, if you stand still, they will swallow you.
