    [​IMG] Motivational Quotes by Jewish American Philanthropist Eli Broad
    To me, money is a means to do good. I reached a point in my life where I had enjoyed tremendous business success that afforded my family everything we could possibly want. My wife and I then decided that we could use our wealth to make a difference. So we created the Broad Foundations to do four things: to improve urban public education, to support innovative scientific and medical research, to foster art appreciation for audiences worldwide and to support civic initiatives in Los Angeles.
    Eli Broad - Money - Business - Success - Philanthropy - Rich - Family - Wealth - Generous - Education - Research - Art

    I am not a patient person. My friends and colleagues will confirm this. But, frankly, we should all feel a little more impatient with the state of public education in America today.
    Eli Broad - Patience - Education - America

    While I am proud of a number of accomplishments, there are real costs to being unreasonable. Long hours. Too little time with family. A near incapacity for, as they say, stopping and smelling the roses.
    Eli Broad - Success - Proud - Accomplishments - Family - Hard Work

    I can imagine no more important contribution to our country’s future than a long-term commitment to improving urban K-12 public schools.

    At a time when all the other builders were selling homes with basements but without carports, we would sell homes without basements and with carports. This allowed us to provide a more appealing product at a lower price. In other words, we felt we would be giving customers greater value.
    Eli Broad - Real Estate - Selling - Property - Consumer - Products - Customers

    There is no substitute for knowledge. To this day, I read three newspapers a day. It is impossible to read a paper without being exposed to ideas. And ideas.. more than money.. are the real currency for success.
    Eli Broad - Money - Success - Knowledge - Newspapers - Reading - Ideas

    I learned to embrace risk, as long as it was well thought out and, in a worst-case scenario, I’d still land on my feet.
    Eli Broad - Risk - Learn - Planning

    Public education is the key civil rights issue of the 21st century. Our nation's knowledge-based economy demands that we provide young people from all backgrounds and circumstances with the education and skills necessary to become knowledge workers. If we don't, we run the risk of creating an even larger gap between the middle class and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy, our society and the economic future of America.
    Eli Broad - Education - America - School - Knowledge - Rights - Economy - Skills - Class - Poor - Democracy - Society - Work

    I don't think the market can keep going up. In the U.S., we see real estate not going up.. houses are selling at lower prices. You can't have anything going up 10 percent to 20 percent to 30 percent indefinitely.

    [​IMG] Business Quotes by author Jose Silva
    If you do the right job then money will come to you. Because people who need you will request, will ask for you, will attract you, and will be willing to pay you for your services.
    Jose Silva - Jobs - Money
    - People

    Some people are destroyed by their first failure, while others are destroyed by their first major success. So let's have successes in small amounts, leading up to being able to be successful.

    As long as you keep yourself centered, and are fulfilling the purpose you were sent here for, you will succeed and be prosperous in all areas of life.
    Jose Silva - Focus
    - Success

    Sometimes when a person is too successful too rapidly, he goes off in all directions, and doesn't know how to cope with it. We say do not be ruined by your first failure, or spoiled by your first success.
    Jose Silva - Failure
    - Success

    All programming for prosperity should be built on spiritual foundations. The first step is to enter the spiritual dimension, the alpha level, and determine what your purpose in life is. Find out what you are here for, what you are supposed to do with your life.

    Dale Carnegie - Skill - Technology - People - Knowledge - Success

    To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life.

    As our economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
    Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along.
    Julia Gillard - Jobs - Australia - Economy - Education - Skills - Poverty

    The concept of social inclusion in essence means replacing a welfarist approach to helping the underprivileged with one of investing in them and their communities to bring them into the mainstream market economy. It’s a modern and fresh approach that views everyone as a potential wealth creator and invests in their human capital. My reason for adopting such an approach is simple: at a time when Australia needs more skilled people and has an ageing population, we simply can’t afford to have one in ten or more of our people out of the workforce due to unemployment, low skills or the effects of chronic poverty. S
    ocial inclusion is an economic imperative.

    Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity; having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power in the character.
    Vince Lombardi - Leadership - Skill - Truth - Power

    Everybody has talent, it's just a matter of moving around until you've discovered what it is.
    George Lucas - Skill - Self Help

    Don't bring your need to the marketplace, bring your skill. If you don't feel well, tell your doctor, but not the marketplace. If you need money, go to the bank, but not the marketplace.

    Jim Rohn - Marketing - Skill - Customers

    We are approaching a new age of synthesis. Knowledge cannot be merely a degree or a skill.. it demands a broader vision, capabilities in critical thinking and logical deduction without which we cannot have constructive progress.

    Your earning ability today is largely dependent upon your knowledge, skill and your ability to combine that knowledge and skill in such a way that you contribute value for which customers are going to pay.

    Brian Tracy - Earning - Knowledge - Skill - Customers

    Leaders are made, not born. You learn to become a leader by doing what other excellent leaders have done before you. You become proficient in your job or skill, and then you become proficient at understanding the motivations and behaviors of other people.
    Brian Tracy - Learning - Leadership - Skill - Jobs - Motivational

    Confidence can get you where you want to go, and getting there is a daily process. It’s so much easier when you feel good about yourself, your abilities and talents.

    Top Ten Mistakes made in Business Plans - Jan B. King
    1. Not proving that you have the management expertise to make it happen.
    The quality of your people will lend credibility to your ideas and even to your financial projections. If your management team is not as strong as it could be, join forces with a great board of advisors.

    2. Not demonstrating where your revenue will come from - what customers pay you and
    why they pay you.
    Don’t be too aggressive in setting revenue projections or you will undermine your credibility.

    3. Not proving that your business model and long term cost structure is good enough to make a real profit.
    How will your business make money - what is your margin structure, what are your costs?

    4. Not being clear enough in your product description to allow the reader to quickly see the need and the niche for this product.
    It may seem obvious to you, but not so to the reader not educated in your business.

    5. Not proving that the market opportunity is big enough to get interested in.
    How big is your market now and what will it look like in 5 years?

    6. Not adequately acknowledging your competition.
    Investors know that if there is no perceived competition, there may be no market for what you are offering. The better you can describe your competition, the better you understand your market, and the more likely you will dominate it.

    7. Not writing for the target audience.
    Although the core is the same, the plan should be written for the perspective of banks, equity investors, and others. Go as far as you can to tailor each plan to the audience’s specific interests to show you’ve done your homework and know to whom you are talking.

    8. Starting with a boring, unenthusiastic executive summary.
    This is the first section to be read, and if it isn’t exciting the rest may never be seen. Make it fun and be enthusiastic. It should stand alone and generate interest for more. It deserves all the thought you would put into a professionally done promotional piece for your customers.

    9. Poor presentation.
    If you have typos and grammatical errors in your business plan, the reader will assume the work you do in your business is sloppy too.

    10. Saying too much.
    Keep the entire plan to a maximum of 30 pages, with an executive summary of 3 pages or less. If investors are interested, they will ask for any other information they need. Amateurs talk in the business plan about unimportant details because they don’t know what they should say and what they shouldn’t. Hire a professional editor to reduce the page count and help you emphasize your strengths.
