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.

No matter your age or gender we all have woken up at some point and said I need a haircut. Even bald men have to do some sort of maintenance. The warning signs are clear because you do not look put together, maybe you’re uncomfortable, and it’s time to clean up. As an entrepreneur, your business can be giving you the same signs, but you may be ignoring them.
