Wisdom from Entrepreneurs, to Entrepreneurs

There are a lot of sites out there that give tips and tricks to entrepreneurs to help them in start-up or growth mode. I find a lot of good information from The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur and Quick Sprout. But, I came across a Tweet today that made me think a little different about what entrepreneurs need. Encouragement through little bits of wisdom, from other successful business owners, that provide some insight and hope to your inner entrepreneur . Below are a few of my favorites, and check out the whole list from VentureVoice here.

“ Every complaint is an opportunity. ” – Derek Sivers
“ This is not a time to panic, cut off all investment in the future, and burrow into a dark hole. Take a page from the packaged goods industry that the time to gain market share is during tough times when your competitors are weaker in responding. ” – Alan Patricof
“ With VCs, if you want money, ask for advice — and vice versa. When they offer money, make sure you get advice. When they go out of their way to offer advice, watch your wallet. ” – Scott Rafer
“ If you want to be a pioneer, you have to be comfortable being misunderstood. ” – Jeff Bezos
