Most of what I know about money and entrepreneurship I owe to those people that have already achieved great success in those fields. These are the people that have gone through plenty of hardship and struggles, but never gave up and were able to achieve things for what we know them today. Fortunately, they were also gracious enough to share their valuable lessons and experiences with the rest of the world. Today, we often refer to these individuals as business motivators.
The lessons described below were taken from various books and videos. Some things mentioned are direct quotes, while others are a combination of ideas and theories that were put together and paraphrased by me. I hope they inspire you just as much as they inspire me!

By not caring about the small things, and instead taking care of the bigger things, you achieve success and create more room for even bigger problems to solve. That is how growth happens. The small problems never go anywhere, Dean says. It’s just that you need to solve bigger problems to become successful and make every day count.
