GNV-ReThink-Business-Quotes

This past week, I had the absolute pleasure of speaking alongside some incredibly talented authors, entrepreneurs, doers, and thinkers at Rethink GNV, a day centered around “rethinking” the Gainesville, FL entrepreneurial ecosystem. Developed by the team at Student Maid, a cleaning and concierge service in the college town that has quickly become a community leader, the event was started to encourage the community to come together for a day of inspiration, connection, and learning.

What was a smashing success for the Gainesville community last week could, and most definitely should, be shared with the entrepreneurial community at large, so I have gathered exceptional quotes shared from the crowd at the event (through #rethinkgnv on Twitter) that will help you rethink your own city, business, and life.

I believe the toughness I have seen in athletes corresponds well to any organization or business. (more…)
