Today I’m doing something a little different on the blog. Why? Well, to be honest, I am swamped and didn’t have time to write an insightful, detailed how-to article this week. Also, next week is Valentine’s Day, so I figured why not celebrate the upcoming holiday here? (Is it really a holiday? Or is it more of an occasion? I digress.)
To get you in the mood, I’ve rounded up a handful of quotes from heavyweight entrepreneurs on love, passion, and even dating. I hope you find some humor, inspiration, and joy in this mix. And be sure to come back Thursday, when we return to our regular hard-hitting, deep-dive content to help you grow your business.
“The only way to get love is to be lovable. It’s very irritating if you have a lot of money. You’d like to think you could write a check: ‘I’ll buy a million dollars’ worth of love.’ But it doesn’t work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get.” —Warren Buffett
“You can’t convince someone else—whether it’s a potential employer, a loan officer at the car dealership, or someone you’ve been crushing on—that you’re amazing and terrific if you don’t actually think you are.” —Sophia Amoruso

“When men I have dated over the years whined about, ‘Oh, you make no time for me’ – see ya! I just dumped them. I don’t need that pressure in my life.” —Rachael Ray

“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” —Oprah Winfrey
