These inspiring quotes about business growth have been pulled from my nearly 20 years of helping organizations reach their growth potential.
Successful innovation is often inspired by those who have innovated before us. In my earlier years with Orange Pegs, I would often find myself searching for articles, books, and even inspirational business quotes to help me get through the doldrums of an otherwise frustrating period in time... to help bring clarity to my existing position, and to start piecing together a plan to overcome my most daunting challenges.
As I did this, I realized that my mission statement began to form around these ideas, and eventually, all aspects of my core business strategy were somehow engrained with thse moments of inspiration.
So, I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you--some are well-known, while others hidden gems. Let me know what you think!
