Inspirational quotes trigger something within us when we hear them and read them.
They activate our emotions and sometimes when they resonate with us, they increase our pulse and get our creative or critical thinking juices flowing
That’s one of the reasons why I often share quotes from already very successful entrepreneurs with Mark Creedon, founder of Business Accelerator Mastermind in our monthly Build a Business Not a Job podcast.
Today will be discussing some quotes from Richard Branson.
Even if you’re not a Richard Branson fan, and even if you’re not in business or professional practice, today’s show will be for you because I believe there are some great benefits you can reap by listening to inspirational quotes.
Maybe when you hear Mark and I dissect some of Richard Branson’s quotes you’ll get a different or better angle on a particular subject.
Maybe you’ll get an insight into the thoughts and teachings of somebody a little wiser
Maybe won’t learn something new but the repletion of words will remind you of something you already know and hopefully it will trigger something within you to get you back on track or further down the track.
Even if you’re not a fan of quotes I hope you enjoy today’s show because if you want to become more successful in life whether it’s in business, entrepreneurship, investing or just simply in your relationships.

Today Branson has a net worth of over $4.9 Billion and having more than 400 companies, he is one of the most highly respected CEOs in the world.
