Are you ever sitting at your desk in need of some inspiration? Motivation? Support? Maybe you’re a business owner and you just can’t seem to put into words the message you want to get across to your employees. Or you’re a manager and you want to encourage your team members. Or you’re an entrepreneur and need some words of reassurance. Here are some inspiring quotes from leaders to help you out.



  • “A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all.” – Michael LeBoeuf, business author and professor
  • “A passionate belief in your business and personal objectives can make all the difference between success and failure. If you aren’t proud of what you’re doing, why should anybody else be?” – Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group
  • “The common question that gets asked in business is, ‘why?’ That’s a good question, but an equally valid question is, ‘why not?’” – Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon
  • “A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business.” – Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company
  • “There is only one boss: the customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.” – Sam Walton, founder of Walmart and Sam’s Club
  • “Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.” – Jack Welch, former Chairman and CEO of General Electric
  • “Just really, really believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.” – Luke Bryan, country singer and songwriter
  • “Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility.” – Peter Drucker, former management consultant, educator, and author
  • “The biggest hurdle is rejection. Any business you start, be ready for it. The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is the successful people do all the things the unsuccessful people don’t want to do. When 10 doors are slammed in your face, go to door number 11 enthusiastically, with a smile on your face.” – John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of Paul Mitchell and The Patrón Spirits Company
  • “No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit.” – Andrew Carnegie, founder of Carnegie Steel Company
  • “Your workforce is your most valuable asset. The knowledge and skills they have represent the fuel that drives the engine of business – and you can leverage that knowledge.” – Harvey Mackay, businessman and author
