Entrepreneur Quotes – The Ultimate List for Your Bathroom Mirror

I found that success entrepreneur quotes – albeit cheesy – kept me going in some of my darkest, most debt-ridden times. Some will be wrong for you but some will be right and some you’ll think about when you most need it.

Personally, I like to keep some sticky notes on my bathroom mirror.

 

Entrepreneur Quotes – The Ultimate List for Your Bathroom Mirror

Okay, I’m lying! I actually draw on my mirror with erase markers in neon colors because it’s just way more fun but the point is the same.

Here’s some quotes that I’ve written for myself and that have resonated with me.

I’ve decided not to number them becuase I like adding and taking away from the list as I evolve.

You’ll notice that as you start growing in your business and you become more experienced, certain quotes either become irrelevant or just don’t speak to you the same way anymore. I try to make sure there’s something in the list for everyone but don’t be suprised if it changes now and again 🙂

Enjoy!

  1. That is quite a list you got there Martina, I personally like the 2 quotes made by Albert Einstein because it speaks out to me as it is ok to fail. I also love how you come up with your own quotes, it’s errr more informal and straightforward compared to other philosophies. If I have to say what my personal favourite is, it would be the motto “Keep Moving Forward” that is from the movie Meet The Robinsons. It’s a simple quote but a personal powerful one to me.

    • Hey Levon, 

      Thanks for adding your comment to the mix! Love it 🙂 

      Hahah, aww thanks – I’m glad you liked mine. They’re just lessons I’ve learned from working online that I tried to put into nice sounding phrases

  2. Hallo there,

    You have compiled quite interesting quotes here. When you see them immediately you wake up, they set your mind working on turbo.

    I think I should more on my wardrobe door because it is the first thing I look at when I wake up. It faces my bed and would really help with motivating me as I open my eyes to meet the day. Thanks a lot.

  3. Thank you for these motivational quotes to help inspire and push us entrepreneurs when times are hard.

    Being as someone who’s building an online business, many people naturally don’t understand how it works and think I’m just being scammed out of my money — so it makes it very difficult when you don’t get support from people around you.

    However just working hard each and every day eventually you’ll reach your goals and show everyone around you what your capable of.

    • Hey Micheal, 

      I totally understand – hopefully you’re finding more and more people online that get where you’re coming from!
