Quotes from some of the top US Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are an interesting breed, they see that they don’t stand a chance and still work harder then they can possibly imagine to try to beat them. People wonder why I chose hosting with hundreds of thousands of competitors (maybe the most of any business). It was simple actually, I love computers, I love business, and I love helping especially with business. It was never about the market, it’s was about doing what I love. Once you find that, the work no matter how hard seems to come naturally.

Of course lots of reading and inspiration can’t hurt.

Here is some of the top Entrepreneurs over the last 100 year and some words of inspiration from them.
