  1. “I believe in goals. It’s never a bad thing to have a dream. If something is really what you want to do, just do it. Whatever your goal.”
  2. “Fantasizing about the future is one of my favorite pastimes.”
  3. “All you have in life is your reputation: you may be very rich, but if you lose your good name, then you’ll never be happy. The thought will always lurk at the back of your mind that people don’t trust you”
  4. “Branding is everything. A young girl once came up to me and told me I could be famous because I looked just like Richard Branson!”
  5. “Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple.”
  6. “My biggest motivation? Just to keep challenging myself. I see life almost like one long university education that I never had.”
  7. “My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.”
  8. “There are no rules. You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over, and it’s because you fall over that you learn to save yourself from falling over”
  9. “I may be a businessman in that I set up and run companies for profit, but when I try to plan ahead and dream up new products and new companies, I’m an idealist.”
  10. “I am the captain of my ship and master of my fate. I believe in myself. I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love.”
  11. “I don’t think of work as work and play as play. It’s all living.”
  12. “Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa – and it’s about getting a balance.”
  13. “I cannot remember a moment in my life when I have not felt the love of my family. We were a family that would have killed for each other – and we still are.”
  14. “You only live once, and I just don’t want to waste a minute of my life.”
  15. “I get up in the morning and come into what must be the nicest office in the world. It’s a fantastic time for reflection and thinking about things. I come up with more ideas here than I do in the day-to-day running back home.”
  16. “Everyone starts out as a beginner: Successful people are just further along in their careers.”
  17. You have one life, so spend it doing something you love.
  18. Entrepreneur isn’t just a label, it’s a lifestyle.
  19. If you’re sitting at your desk all day long without taking time to meet with employees, coworkers, clients and others in your network, you’re missing key business opportunities.
  20. You need a lot of ingredients to launch a successful business, but a big pot of money isn’t one of them.
  21. If your startup isn’t turning a profit, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure.
  22. Running your own business and raising a family often go hand-in-hand, but finding a balance can be challenging.
  23. Stepping out of your comfort zone is unavoidable if you want to truly grow your business.
  24. Smile and your customers will smile with you
  25. “Some 80% of your life is spent working. You want to have fun at home; why shouldn’t you have fun at work?”
  26. “Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple.”
  27. “A company is people … employees want to know… am I being listened to or am I a cog in the wheel? People really need to feel wanted.”
  28. “Most necessary evils are far more necessary than evil.”
  29. “Engage your emotions at work.  Your instincts and emotions are there to help you.”
  30. “You can never go too far wrong by thinking like a customer who’s new to the business.”
  31. “You shouldn’t blindly accept a leader’s advice.  You’ve got to question leaders on occasion.”
  32. “I believe that drudgery and clock-watching are a terrible betrayal of that universal, inborn entrepreneurial spirit.”
  33. “The time to go into a new business is when it’s badly run by others.”
  34. “There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.”
  35. And then there’s my very favorite one of all – something that I actually say fairly often: “Screw it, let’s just do it.”
