5 Great Business Tips from Inspiring Quotes

Have you ever read a saying that immediately inspired you to get back out there and kick some business goals? We all need to be reminded sometimes of why we’re doing what we’re doing! Here are five quotes we love that offer fantastic advice for keeping your business plans on track.

Be focused

You can do anything, but not everything. – David Allen

Shiny Object Syndrome is definitely a thing! Creatives are great at coming up with ideas and exploring new opportunities, but the start of one thing will always look more appealing than the middle of another. Completing current projects before committing to new ones will move your business forward faster and help avoid that overwhelmed feeling.

Be patient

It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. – Confucius

Sometimes it feels like you’re wading through treacle to reach the end of your to do list. Is there more you can be doing? If not, take the pressure off and give each goal the time it needs – you’ll be in a better headspace for it!

Be yourself

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. – Arthur Ashe

It’s all too easy to start comparing yourself to what others are doing and achieving. Everyone has their own path, timeline and destination – you have a different story, different skillset and different goals, so keep working on your own plans (free from any confidence-killing social media stalking) and you’ll go further than you thought possible.

Be adaptable

Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out. – John Wooden

There’s no doubt if you’re working in the wedding industry that you’re used to adapting to every rain cloud in the sky or changing job brief. With how quickly trends, tastes and technology are shifting now, the ability to anticipate and take changes in your stride is more important than ever!

Be proactive

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. – Milton Berle

If owning your own business was simple and straightforward, everyone would do it! It’s scary and exciting, empowering and rewarding but best of all, the outcome is in your own hands. Whatever you want to achieve, commit to making it happen, connect with your fellow creatives, invest in support where you need it and your dreams will turn into plans.

And finally, as any business owner knows: Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. – Neale Donald Walsch
