Our CEO lives his life by Albert Einstein's famous quotes:
"Try not to become a man of success,
but rather a man of value."
“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”

Our CEO, Mr. Mark Ayers, made a quote to me, Justin, your
humble author of this page, a timeless quote in my opinion:

"You know you've become successful when you can look
yourself in the mirror, and honestly state out loud:
-- "I have honestly, fervently, and faithfully
used every bit of my potential...and--
I am completely happy doing what I do."--

If you haven't used every last little piece of
your potential, and be happy in it's endeavors,
you must go back, and improve, until you
can honestly say this."
(You should never be done doing this, by the way...)
Inspiring our owner to create this page, here's
some more of our favorite
"Business Success" inspirational quotes, and the
people who said them:
Henry Ford said;
"If everyone is moving forward together,
then success takes care of itself."
Abe Lincoln said:
"Commitment is what transforms
a promise into a reality."
Ghandi said;
"You can not shake hands with a closed fist"
Andrew Carnegie said;
"Borrow money from other men,
then make some for yourself"
Sales Trainer extraordinaire Brian Tracy said;
"You can not soar with the eagles if you          
continue to scratch with the turkeys"
NFL Coach John Harbaugh said;
"Work Will Win"
Woody Hayes had these 2 classics;          
"Paralyze resistance with persistence."
"Success - it 's what you do with what you've got."
John Wooden was probably the most quoted sports figure ever.
He has these classics besides the one on the left:

"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with
what you can do."
"Ability may get you to the top,
but it takes character to keep you there."
"A coach is someone who can give correction
without causing resentment."
"If you don't have time to do it right,
when will you have time to do it over?"
"You can't let praise or criticism get to you.
It's a weakness to get caught up in either one."
Perhaps the most unbelievable, yet
"oh-so-true" quote ever,
a second one from Thomas J. Watson:
"If you want to increase your success rate,
double your failure rate."
...Leading to what our former
Secretary of State Colin Powell said:
"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of
preparation, hard work, and learning from failure."
Theodore Isaac Rubin said 2 classics:           .
"Happiness does not come from doing easy work
but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes
after the achievement of a difficult task that
demanded our best."
"Kindness is more important than wisdom, and
the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom".
Aristotle Onassis said:           .
"The secret of business is to know something
that nobody else knows."
Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon added:          
"A brand for a company is like a reputation for a
person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard
things well."
Former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov:  
(words slightly adjusted for this column)      .
"If you think your chances are not looking great today,
the only way to fail for sure is just not to try."
Warren Buffett, business magnate, investor wisely
“Time is the friend of the wonderful business,
the enemy of the mediocre.”
Bill Gates, Microsoft;
“Your most unhappy customers
are your greatest source of learning.”
Tony Hsieh, Zappos CEO, American entrepreneur:
“Chase the vision, not the money; the money
will end up following you.”
Wendy's founder Dave Thomas fielded a
"Wantreprenuer"'s question,
“What do I need to start a business?"
"Three simple things: Know your product better than anyone.
Know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed.”
Alexander Alekhine was a former multiple
time World Chess Champion beginning
in 1927.
We hope his quote is taken to heart
by folks with undesirable financial
situations, who reject professional advice
from us, or other professionals, that say
"I'll figure something else out".
They never can, and then it's too late
to help them avoid bankruptcy.
“The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In
a world that’s changing really quickly, the
only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is
not taking risks.”
 — Mark Zuckerberg,
Facebook founder

"Hard times require furious dancing."
