Quotes:

“We are living in a society of fear and self-doubt. We are taught to be scared of things, we are taught not to trust our instincts and to doubt ourselves... we are convinced by our parents and spouses and bankers, accountants that this is the biggest risk we can take: starting a business... don’t get caught up with fear and self-doubt. Trust yourself and trust your instincts. Believe in yourself.”
