Business Success Quotations

With all the doom and gloom in the papers, you might be excused for thinking that business is dead. Fortunately, that's a long way from the truth!

There are plenty successful businesses out there and I would bet my last pair of socks that they're all sharing similar values as those in my favourite business success quotations.

If you doubt this, just read through my list of favourite business success quotations. You'll probably recognise most of the names - and that alone should tell you something.
