Some inspirational quotes from inspirational people

Steve Jobs

So, I’m a member of a local business women’s group in my area and I’ve set up their Facebook pages (Women Rocking Business Helensburgh and Lomond). As we have only just started, we don’t have a lot of interaction on the page yet, so I was thinking up ways to make the page interesting.

This week I’ve opted for inspirational quotes raise a smile and support anyone going through any sort of down at the moment. Let’s face it, running your own business is hard work, so if there’s anything I can do to make it better, I will.

And as it is a page for ladies in business, I was looking for quotes from women. I had originally done a search on quotes for businesses and all that came up was quotes from men. So, then I had to search for quotes from businesswomen and I got some. I don’t understand why the quotes from businesswomen didn’t come up in my first search. Aw well.

oprahOprah is one of my heroines when it comes to women in business. And she talks a good bit of sense too!



What she means by this is that those who do not see ‘failure’ as ‘failure’ and do not give up, are the ones who succeed. It is those who are downed by failure, that fail. So, the moral of the story is: don’t let the bad times get you down, keep on going and eventually you will achieve your goals.

And now for the boys…


Wise words from old Winston. And these words still stand today.


I like this quote because it’s all about putting the past in the past and going for it.
