People ask, 'Are entrepreneurs born, or are they made?' I think it's a combination of both.
You can never be satisfied as an entrepreneur, and the basis of any successful, growing business is new clients.
What is great about entrepreneurship is that entrepreneurs create the tangible from the intangible.
If you are under the illusion that you can start a business and run it at your life's schedule, you are mistaken. The business is like a starving puppy - when it needs to eat, then it needs to eat regardless of what you have going on personally.
Oh, I'm all about small business. I think what we've learned from big business and big Wall Street is that unchecked greed and the creation of false value gets us all in trouble. If we look at the American economy, who's really creating value? It's the small businesses.

When I was a waiter, I wanted to be the best waiter I could be and worked to be better at it every day.
When I sold my first business, I wanted to do something nice for my dad. I wanted to give my parents a bunch of money, but they wouldn't take anything from me. They were so happy for me; they felt they didn't need money.
I'm really inspired to build a billion-dollar company. The hardest part is building the vehicle to get you there.
