Love these quotes – have written them down for myself 😉 My favourite is the first one!
I’m glad you enjoyed them! I like that quote by Power too. It really made me stop and think the first time I read it. We can dream about something all day long, or for years on end, but if we don’t act on that dream it will remain just a dream forever.

I love these types of posts. There’s always a ton of great quotes out there. I like the one from Win Borden. The one by Maya Angelou applies in sales more than people think!
I like Borden’s quote too. It helps push me along as I have a tendency to over think things and stall. Nothing can be perfect and sometimes the hardest hurdle is just taking the first step to actually get started!
I love the last one because it is so true and definitely applicable to my current endeavours on my blog. I try to learn as much as possible from those who have been around longer than me so I hopefully can avoid some of the mistakes they had when starting their blog. It doesn’t always work but it has definitely saved me some major time in a few cases.
I know exactly what you mean. It’s nice being able to get advice from people who have more experience so we can save time learning from the hurdles they already overcame. Thank goodness for the internet you know! It’s awesome how we can share so much information and advice with people all over the world.
