I think I’ve got my #business notions and my sense for that sort of thing from my dad. My dad never had a chance to go to school. He couldn’t read and write. But he was so smart. He was just one of those people that could just make the most of anything and everything that he had to work with.
I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you’re a musician, a writer, an athlete or a #businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you’ll win - if you don’t, you won’t.
Government’s role should be only to keep the playing field level, and to work hand in hand with #business on issues such as employment. But beyond this, to as great an extent as possible, it should get the hell out of the way.
For the first time we’re allowing developers who don’t work at Facebook to develop applications just as if they were. That’s a big deal because it means that all developers have a new way of doing #business if they choose to take advantage of it. There are whole companies that are forming whose only product is a Facebook Platform application.
There are no right and wrong ways to work in this #business, but there are some basic common-sense practices. Work very, very hard and always be prepared never give up and once you get the job, give them more than they ever expected: - Shine!
Democrats think the country works better with a strong middle class, real opportunities for poor people to work their way into it and a relentless focus on the future, with #business and government working together to promote growth and broadly shared prosperity. We think ’we’re all in this together’ is a better philosophy than ’you’re on your own.’
Creative people don’t behave very well generally. If you’re looking for examples of good relationships in show #business, you’re gonna be depressed real fast. I don’t have time for anything else right now but work and my daughter. She’s my first priority.
I love my family very much. I wish I could see them a little more often than I do. But we understand because we’re a show #business family and we all work.
#business and growing jobs is about taking risk, sometimes failing, sometimes succeeding, but always striving. It is about dreams. Usually, it doesn’t work out exactly as you might have imagined. Steve Jobs was fired at Apple. He came back and changed the world.
And if small #businesspeople say they made it on their own, all they are saying is that nobody else worked seven days a week in their place. Nobody showed up in their place to open the door at five in the morning. Nobody did their thinking, and worrying, and sweating for them.
When they take surveys of women in #business, of the Fortune 500, the successful women, 80% of them, say they were in sports as a young woman.
These women whose antics we smirk at good-naturedly in the pap-traps put themselves out there at least partly on their beauty they are in showbiz, and showing what they’ve got is part of their #business as much as it is for male show-ponies from the Chippendales to George Clooney.
Now that women are jockeys, baseball umpires, atomic scientists, and #business executives, maybe someday they can master parallel parking.
Tell the trial lawyers to get out of your state and to quit costing #businessmen and women.
Obamacare has got everyone on edge. I mean, small #business - men and women or big #business are sitting out there saying we have no idea what this is going to cost, but we know it’s going to cost us and cost us a lot.
I’m trying to build a strong #business. I want to create new stars, new shows and new products for my audience and create a legacy that outlives me. There are so many other ways I want to reach women besides doing a talk show.
I think all women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols. That’s what our purpose is in this #business. You’re merchandised, you’re a product. You’re sold and it’s based on sex. But that’s okay. I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded.
Advertising is a #business of words, but advertising agencies are infested with men and women who cannot write. They cannot write advertisements, and they cannot write plans. They are helpless as deaf mutes on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera.
I believe that the rights of women and girls is the unfinished #business of the 21st century.
All issues are women’s issues - and there are several that are just women’s #business.
It is easier for women to succeed in #business, the arts, and politics in America than in Europe.
I have tried at every point to seek God’s wisdom on the decisions I made, and I made it my #business to speak up on behalf of the things God tells us are important to Him.
Come, come, leave #business to idlers, and wisdom to fools: they have need of ’em: wit be my faculty, and pleasure my occupation, and let father Time shake his glass.
Just as a cautious #businessman avoids investing all his capital in one concern, so wisdom would probably admonish us also not to anticipate all our happiness from one quarter alone.
Raising children is an incredibly hard and risky #business in which no cumulative wisdom is gained: each generation repeats the mistakes the previous one made.
Those who govern, having much #business on their hands, do not generally like to take the trouble of considering and carrying into execution new projects. The best public measures are therefore seldom adopted from previous wisdom, but forced by the occasion.
I would absolutely, definitely never sell my wedding pictures to a magazine. I’d like it to be a special day, not a photo shoot. And once you’ve done that, your marriage becomes everybody else’s #business.
