    entrepreneurship Quotes

    My favorite quote about entrepreneurship is that to understand an entrepreneur, you should study a juvenile delinquent. They're both saying: "This sucks and I'm going to do it another way." You have to want to break the rules and prove that your way works.

    — Tom Peters
    The ideal country in a flat world is the one with no natural resources, because countries with no natural resources tend to dig inside themselves. They try to tap the energy, entrepreneurship, creativity, and intelligence of their own people-men and women-rather than drill an oil well.

    Time is a function of impact. The longer a book of mine has been in print, the greater its impact seems to be as people absorb and digest my ideas.

    — Rosabeth Moss Kanter

    — Peter Drucker
