Women Business Freedom

In this business, life is one long fund-raising effort.~Alvin Ailey


Life Business Effort

The building up of a new, far-reaching system of inspection on the question of equal pay, with power to investigate every business in the United States, administered by a colossal new government agency with vast enforcement powers, would not be helpful to women, as far as I can see.~Alice Paul


Women Business Power

To think that the new economy is over is like somebody in London in 1830 saying the entire industrial revolution is over because some textile manufacturers in Manchester went broke.~Alvin Toffler


Business Revolution Think

I've never isolated role models based on gender. I have more male role models due to the mere fact that I've done business with more of them and they're leaders within the verticals I work.

They totally get it, and they want to go into the business. Ruby, my daughter, is very keen to become an actress.~Andy Serkis


Family Daughter Business

I want 'Vogue' to be pacy, sharp, and sexy - I'm not interested in the super-rich or infinitely leisured.

She's interested in business and money.~Anna Wintour


Women Business Money

The Fashion Fund celebrates the real passion that underlies the fashion business, not the frothy world of glamour and celebrity that so often surrounds it.~Anna Wintour

I asked questions when I was a stripling, and it is not my business to ask questions now, but to teach people what I have discovered.~Apollonius of Tyana


Business People Teach

Sometimes I get extremely disturbed with the things that are written. But you can't do anything about it. As a celebrity, you are putting yourself out there to be judged, and that's fine. I am now learning not to get affected by such things. I am building my career and making choices that I think are right while minding my own business.~Anushka Sharma


Learning Business I Am

My life has always been compartmentalized into different aspects. I have my speed skating Olympic pursuits, I have my personal life and have my business life and have my entertainment - TV - Hollywood - whatever have you - always compartmentalizing every aspect of my life.~Apolo Ohno

In the movies, you want a good story and characters that are honest, but you are also looking for a good director who can lead the ship. That's how we look at business.

Business Good Great

I'm very free-spirited and crazy. I love to have fun, and I like doing stupid things. At the same time, I'm like a 35-year-old. I have a house. I have a car. I have a steady job. I have a business, and I have to make serious decisions.~Avril Lavigne


Love Time Business

You cannot get into business for the fashion of it.~Azim Premji

I think legislation needs to put an end to doctors profiting on businesses to which they can funnel patients - that is business, not medicine. If you try to call it medicine, then it is corruption. Without legislation, it will keep happening.~Abraham Verghese


Business End Corruption

Well, a lot of people within government and big business are nervous of Hip Hop and Hip Hop artists, because they speak their minds. They talk about what they see and what they feel and what they know. They reflect what's around them.~Afrika Bambaataa

I can't control what's fair and unfair. I can't control the nature of the business or the nature of society or the nature of the world, but what I can control is how I choose to see the world and what I choose to put back into it.~Aisha Tyler


Nature Business World

I always feel like 'as long as I'm doin' what I love to do, the money's naturally gonna come.' When you start thinkin' business and you start thinkin' 'What's hot? What's the wave? Who is hot? Let's get at that person,' it becomes a point where you're tryin' to strategize to make money. And that's always a gamble.~Akon

Music Business Me

I know that if I can't move people, then I have no business being an actor.~Alan Arkin


Business People Know

I have always been an honest trader. I come from a school of traders where there was honour in the deal. No contracts, just a handshake and that's it, done. That's the way I prefer to do business but it's not always possible these days, sadly.~Alan Sugar


Business School Way

It's funny: in the middle of making 'The Muse,' I was offered, at the time, the first 'Ice Age,' the part that Ray Romano took: I was offered the elephant. And I couldn't even stop to breathe, so I didn't do it. They've made, like, six of them. And in the animation business, for a voice actor, that's what you want. You want six, you know?~Albert Brooks


Funny Time Business

I'd still like to see 'Survivor' minus the planned show-biz parts. That would be the purest form of show business - I want to see someone so hungry that they eat somebody else's foot.~Albert Brooks

The music business doesn't take up that much of my time. I probably should put a little more energy into it.~Alan Jackson


Music Time Business

Would-be drug companies must either produce medicines that stand up to federal scrutiny, demonstrate that their data has value to other companies, or go out of business.~Alex Berenson

Work Business Money

When I graduated from college in early 2010, I decided that I needed to create a calling card, some kind of business card that people can link to my name and face. So I did this 'Mad Men Theme Song... With a Twist' music video. I released it just as I moved to L.A.~Allison Williams


Music Business College

The thing that helped me get into the film business was that I went to school in Athens, Georgia and managed to get on, um, working on music videos for a band called R.E.M. and that kind of opened up a lot of doors for me.~Alton Brown


Music Business School

So many people comment that I'm much more mature than average. In this business, you can get taken advantage of if you're not aware and you're not tough.~Amanda Bynes


Business People Tough

One of the best things about Kickstarter and crowdfunding and the collapse of the music business is a lot of artists like me have been forced to face our own weird mess about ourselves and what we thought it meant to become musicians.~Amanda Palmer


Music Best Business

I'd actually say that every musician is a human being, and that not everybody likes being social. But with music, there are all these ingredients to the business that have nothing to do with writing songs or playing an instrument.~Amanda Palmer


Music Business Writing

There's a huge cloud of shame around art and business being seen as bedfellows.~Amanda Palmer


Art Business Cloud

A government, for protecting business only, is but a carcass, and soon falls by its own corruption and decay.~Amos Bronson Alcott

Business Fitness Leader

My entire business model is to go on offense.~Andrew Breitbart


Business Go Business Model

Under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, a company is not allowed to provide a personal benefit to a decision maker in return for business.

Anybody who really knows about the TV business knows that it would be impossible to just march in one day and say to your colleagues and bosses, 'Oh yes, I'm hosting my own show.'~Andy Cohen

I'm not a politician. I'm a businessperson.~Angela Braly


Politician Businessperson

Life... is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won't be got rid of.~Anita Brookner


Life Future Business

They thought that I did conceive there was a difference between them and Mr. Cotton... I might say they might preach a covenant of works as did the apostles, but to preach a covenant of works and to be under a covenant of works is another business.~Anne Hutchinson


Business Thought Say

Look at the Quakers - they were excellent business people that never lied, never stole; they cared for their employees and the community which gave them the wealth. They never took more money out than they put back in.~Anita Roddick


Business Money Community

If I had learned more about business ahead of time, I would have been shaped into believing that it was only about finances and quality management.~Anita Roddick


Time Business Management

Since the governments are in the pockets of businesses, who's going to control this most powerful institution? Business is more powerful than politics, and it's more powerful than religion. So it's going to have to be the vigilante consumer.~Anita Roddick


Business Religion Politics

Over the past decade... while many businesses have pursued what I call 'business as usual,' I have been part of a different, smaller business movement, one that tried to put idealism back on the agenda.~Anita Roddick


Business Past Back

When you run an entrepreneurial business, you have hurry sickness - you don't look back, you advance and consolidate. But it is such fun.~Anita Roddick


Business Fun Look

I am still looking for the modern equivalent of those Quakers who ran successful businesses, made money because they offered honest products and treated their people decently... This business creed, sadly, seems long forgotten.~Anita Roddick

Business School Financial

All through history, there have always been movements where business was not just about the accumulation of proceeds but also for the public good.~Anita Roddick


Business History Good

Globalisation must have, as a critical component, international dispensation in the locality of U.N. institutions. It cannot be, and must not be, business as usual in the establishment and location of international institutions, especially of the United Nations.~Anthony Carmona


Business United Nations

I personally felt that his ad hominen attacks on British architects were not the sort of thing a Prince of Wales should be doing because, apart from anything else, they put various people out of business.~Anthony Holden


Business People Doing

In the political context fair means somebody that will vote for the unions or for the business. It can't mean that in the judicial context or we're in real trouble.~Anthony Kennedy

The secret of business is to know something that nobody else knows.~Aristotle Onassis


Business Know Nobody

To succeed in business it is necessary to make others see things as you see them.~Aristotle Onassis

Of course in show business there are two ways to play it and I am not politically correct so I am not going to get endorsements or anything like that.~Artie Lange


Business I Am Play

What I have found is that, in a family business structure, sometimes what is needed is a sense of discipline rather than creativity. You have to take everyone's ideas and make it work. When you are dealing with money, there is a limitation on how creative you can be.~Ashwin Sanghi


Family Work Business

Anna Wintour doesn't deal with pictures; she is just doing PR and business, and she scares everybody.~Azzedine Alaia


Business Doing She

I've been spending quite a bit of time in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the U.K. as Mint is expanding globally, and I'm personally doing much of the research and business deals to make them happen.~Aaron Patzer


Time Business Research

Mint's business model became, 'We'll go for free, and then we'll find these savings opportunities for you.' You know, better interest rate on your credit cards, when should you consolidate your student loans, when does it mathematically make sense to refinance your mortgage, and Mint figures all that stuff out for you.~Aaron Patzer


Business Opportunities

If you think about photo sharing sites, the mobile photo sharing and social, there's no competitive advantage, there's no obvious business model, so I never play with anything like that. I avoid it like the plague.~Aaron Patzer


Business You Play

Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don't know if there's an obvious business model. I don't think there's a competitive, sustainable advantage.~Aaron Patzer


Work Time Business

It always surprises me when donors who operate successful businesses assume that just building a school structure means that a community now has access to education. When creating a business, does renting an office space now mean that you're producing goods, training staff and generating revenues?~Adam Braun


Education Business School

If your business is really easy to do, don't gloat. You might be out of a job soon.~Adam Davidson


Business Job You

Most of your day is spent working, and being in a band is no different. We're just business travelers in a way.~Adam Schlesinger


Business Day Working

When you think about little league football, high school, and even on to college even more so, you're dealing with a lot of guys that are prideful, that think they're the best - a lot of alpha males. So, typically, you've got to have a guy that can control those guys, and, when he talks, they know he means business. He's a serious guy.~Adrian Peterson


Best Business School

I have been blessed with working with the best in the business.~Al Roker


Best Business Blessed

I've always had a great respect for the picture business. It's been good to me.~Alan Ladd


Business Respect Good

The reason why I take my life is because I want to go to my wife and boy. My usefulness in this world is at an end. I can not be satisfied in any business and can not be without their companionship.~Alex Campbell


Life Wife Business

I didn't go to drama school, so I didn't really have many true friends in the business; 'Game Of Thrones' has definitely brought me that.~Alfie Allen


Business School Friends

Discipline is not consistency, and the reason why I say that is - like, for an example, making prayer five times a day, that establishes routine and consistency. That I can do. And having certain fundamental consistencies in business, can do. But time management, outside of that, that's where that's a challenge.~Ali Shaheed Muhammad


Time Business Day

You know, the fashion business is this legendary repository of young girls on their way to getting husbands. I really wanted to work.~Ali MacGraw


Work Business Young

I think when I got drawn to film, I didn't know it was a business. I mean, like most filmmakers, I probably saw more films than a lot of people when I was a kid. But I watched them on TV as well. I was no purist about it. I spent lots of time in movie theaters, but I also watched a lot of films on TV.~Allison Anders


Time Business People

I think a lot of times people look at me and say, 'Well, we can't possibly hand a show over to her to run.' It seemed like executives would be worried about me controlling a room and having power, and I'd say, 'Oh, I can control a room. I can give an order like nobody's business.'~Allison Schroeder


Business Power People

The run's the business end of a triathlon: it's where you win or lose the race. I like to get out very hard, make other people hurt sometimes, and other times leave it to the last kilometre and really win the race there.~Alistair Brownlee


Business End Hurt

I can still play this game at a high level; I've proven that. I want to be home. I want to be close to my family. I want to be close to my foundation and my business interests.~Alonzo Mourning


Family Business Home

People in all walks of life, and especially business, do not want to experience the collapse of cities like New York along with global finance and economy in chaos, but this is what business faces if we continue to attribute climate change to fossil fuels alone.~Allan Savory


Life Change Business

I was recently asked about the business side of 'Biggest Loser,' but as long as we entertain people, we can keep coming back and making a difference. It's a delicate balance, but one feeds off the other. I feel so good about the show - it's uplifting and inspiring and entertaining at the same time.~Alison Sweeney


Time Business Good

Aaron Spelling always had his finger on the pulse of pop culture, he knew what the public wanted to see. He was one of the most loyal men in this business and believed in me at a time in my career when no one else would.~Alyssa Milano


Time Business Culture

Aaron Spelling always had his finger on the pulse of pop culture, he knew what the public wanted to see. He was one of the most loyal men in this business and believed in me at a time in my career when no one else would. My prayers are with his family.~Alyssa Milano

At 13, I realized that I could fix anything electronic. It was amazing, I could just do it. I started a business repairing radios. It grew to be one of the largest in Philadelphia.~Amar Bose


Business Amazing Fix

There was a time when I was wondering about this business of going public, so I visited about a half-dozen companies in the Boston area, all of them formed by MIT faculty and all had gone public.~Amar Bose


Time Business Boston

When you see government leaders really bullying business, you know that government's economic policy is failing. They get angry and they get desperate.~Amity Shlaes


Business Government Angry

And what most people don't understand is the bulk of business in this country is small business.~Alphonso Jackson


Business Small People

I feel like sometimes I get even more goofy onstage than I am offstage. I'm not trying to make the music less than what it is. Even if it's hard for me and I have to think about a lot of details, it's none of the audience's business. I don't want them to feel that I'm having a hard time.~Anat Cohen


Music Time Business

Great investors need to have the right combination of intuition, business sense and investment talent.~Andrew Lo


Business Great Talent

Most small business owners are not particularly sophisticated business people. That's not a criticism; they're passionate about cutting hair or cooking food, and that's why they got in the business, not because they have an MBA.~Andrew Mason


Business Food Cooking

Groupon as a company - it's built into the business model - is about surprise. A new deal that surprises you every day. We've carried that over to our brand, in the writing and the marketing that we do, and in the internal corporate culture.~Andrew Mason


Business Day Culture

There are over 2,000 direct clones of the Groupon business model. However, there's an equal amount of proof that the barriers to success are enormous. In spite of all those competitors, only a handful are remotely relevant.~Andrew Mason


Success Business Equal

I didn't realize how hard it was to run a small business.~Andrew Mason


Business Small Realize

If you have a great business, if you're great at your craft people should be coming in there. It shouldn't be this secret.~Andrew Mason

When I was very young, I thought the theatre was a place where higher beings went about their celestial business, as if they knew nothing of ordinary life and its political mysteries.~Andrew O'Hagan


Life Business Political

It's weird to have people so interested in your personal life. It's a part of the business that grosses me out. I'm always bummed out for people who just happen to be dating a celebrity, and they're also famous, and they can't live their life.~Andy Samberg


Life Business Dating

The entertainment business remains a business of blockbusters, and increasingly so.~Anita Elberse


Business Entertainment

I recall an 18-year-old girl named Rachel in Zambia who was given a grant to start a business of her choosing. She decided to breed goats so she could sell the meat and the milk, and donate the kids to orphan children. She herself was an orphan, stepping into young adulthood with no resources, and it was her first opportunity to earn her own money.~Ann Cotton


Children Business Money

If Nora Roberts were a man, she'd be on the cover of big business magazines as the next Charles Dickens.~Ann Maxwell


Business Man She

That's the trouble with the suburbs: it's not a city, so you're not anonymous, and it's not a small town, so that people really care about you, but everybody kind of knows each other's business, so you're very judged.~Anne-Marie Duff


Business Small People

My company in the U.S., Pratt Industries U.S.A., has grown from scratch to become a billion-dollar business based on recycling, as well as the largest Australian-owned employer of U.S. citizens.~Anthony Pratt

I love Australia. I love the people there; they are fantastic. The business opportunities are endless.~Anthony Pratt

Ultimately, innovation depends on the people with advanced skills who have the ideas, and on the business risk-takers willing to back them.~Anthony Pratt


Business Innovation People

I'm proud we have built a billion-dollar business from scratch here in the US. It has been done very much in a slow, building way. It wasn't an instant type of thing. America is a huge market where persistence is very important, and I am a builder by nature.~Anthony Pratt

Imagine a music business where all the music press talked about, all day long, was cover bands of old rock and pop groups. Beatles cover bands, Rolling Stones cover bands, The Who cover bands, Led Zeppelin cover bands. Cover bands, cover bands, everywhere you go.~Antony Johnston

When you are very idealistic, but caught in a world which is all about business, it creates anguish.~Anurag Kashyap

I believe in family values, and I believe that we all ought to be able to have a family and marry if you want to. I don't think the government should be in that business of denying people the fundamental right to marry.~Antonio Villaraigosa

I'm pretty good at weaseling my way into a job, even if I have no business being there.~Aubrey Plaza


Business Good Job

One's mind has a way of making itself up in the background, and it suddenly becomes clear what one means to do.~A. C. Benson


Business Mind Way

The business models in enterprise have changed pretty dramatically. A huge problem with enterprise software traditionally has been usually you sell to the customer and then they adopt the technology. The great thing about 'freemium' and the new way enterprise software is being sold is you get to try it first and then buy it.~Aaron Levie


Business Technology Great

I've been working for many years and I think I've managed to work with some of the best people in the business, which has been rewarding and an apprenticeship.~Aaron Eckhart


Work Best Business

There's a lot of pride that business owners have. It's actually really critical that pride and ownership extends to everyone in the organization. I think of everyone is in the same boat in driving the company forward.~Aaron Levie


Business Boat Pride

Steve Jobs is the most epic entrepreneur of all time. He served as a guiding light for any emerging businessperson who wanted to learn how things should get done. He'll be looked at as one of the best business leaders of all time, and certainly one of the best tech entrepreneurs.~Aaron Levie


Time Best Business

I tend to not discriminate when it comes to people I can learn from. Basically, if someone has built a meaningful business in software, technology or media, faced disruption and adversity, and overcame underdog status, I want to know how they did it.~Aaron Levie


Business Technology People

I know I can't plan in this business, but I'm going to keep going as long as I keep getting close... So far, I feel lucky and infinitely grateful for the successes that I've had. I'm just going to keep working hard, and whatever happens, happens.~Aaron Lazar


Business Grateful

The biggest misconception people have about me is that when they see how young I am, they think, 'Oh, this guy must have always wanted to be in politics; his parents must have been politically connected.' I'm a finance major and always intended to go into business.~Aaron Schock


Business Parents Politics

I believe it is an important project, it makes the cost of doing business lower and they will make us more competitive at the same time, it will also provide some satisfaction to the people who demand services for them of the quality they want and also quickly.~Abdullah Ahmad Badawi


Time Business People

You may love football, but that doesn't mean you have any business trying to play the sport. It's the same thing with filmmaking... everybody has a great idea for a movie, but do you have the stamina to get good at your craft and deal with how heartbreaking it is?~Adam Green

I'm the first to admit I've had a sheltered life. I grew up in the country and went to a boarding school. It was all just part of the business - be nice to everyone and all that.~Adam Rickitt

The ethics of journalism are one thing. Another thing is the ethics of business.~Adam Michnik


Business Ethics Journalism

Politicians and bureaucrats must learn to stay away from the day-by-day functioning of business.~Adi Godrej

We have very strong succession plans across all group companies. But we do not comment on it. The retirement age is 60 years, but it does not apply to family professionals who work in the business.~Adi Godrej


Family Work Business

The hardest thing as an actor is that you work really hard constantly for these roles, and you invest so much in it. And when they don't come to fruition and nobody sees them, there's a part of you that dies a little bit. It's like, 'Ah! But I worked so hard!' But that's the business.~Adrianne Palicki


Work Business You

It's really important to find a humble approach to your own creative work, your own business work. To recognize that you can't do everything yourself.~Adrian Grenier

Writing can be a frightening, distressing business, and whatever kind of structure or buffer is available can help a lot.~Aimee Bender

I've always felt that I'm in a spontaneous business and if you script something, if you plan something, it will sound that way.~Al Michaels

In fact, even the perception of a resurgence in crime can be enough to paralyze business momentum and destroy the sense of security that a vibrant and progressive city requires.~Alan Autry


Business Security City

So if I die, somebody else from the corporation will take over the business.~Alex Chiu


Business Die Over

The university's business is the conservation of useless knowledge; and what the university itself apparently fails to see is that this enterprise is not only noble but indispensable as well, that society can not exist unless it goes on.~Albert J. Nock


Business Knowledge Society

I've been a fashion model for 15 years and designing is just an extension of my career. I still plan on modeling lingerie, but at the same time this is a business transition that I plan to have around for a long time.~Alessandra Ambrosio

The business of a scientific school is the dissemination of useful knowledge, and this is a noble enterprise and indispensable withal; society can not exist unless it goes on.~Albert J. Nock

I think sometimes there are negative connotations for those who have a business mind as well as a creative side.~Alexander Wang

I remember when I first started in the business, I lost a lot of friends. Some were jealous, some were annoyed at the fact that I was an actress.~Amber Tamblyn

A business like acting is 90% luck. You can be a star one minute and out of work the next.~Amber Tamblyn

Time is money in the shipping business.~Ander Crenshaw

For the whole of Western Europe, I know the business community quite good.~Anatoly Chubais


Business Good Community

To me, regardless of who's in office, the government is strangled by business. And the government's priorities are dictated by business. I mean, why does America, even after healthcare reform, still not have free universal healthcare? I'm sure it has something to do with the insurance lobby.~Andrew Dominik


Business Government

I don't know whether crime is dictating business or business is dictating crime.~Andrew Dominik


Business Know Crime

The problem with cap-and-trade and programs such as carbon capture and storage is that they all assume that business as usual can continue. The financial meltdown and peak oil has pretty much demonstrated that business as usual's not going to work.~Andrew Nikiforuk

The most generous part of your philanthropy could be the time you put in to procure the same results and same outcomes and same returns you demand in business.~Andrew Forrest

I have to take time occasionally to get away from the pressures of this business. If I don't, I think I would get stale, and that would show in my music.~Andy Gibb

I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now.~Anna Sui

A life lesson for me is, how do you muster the courage to take on a new risk? Whether it's starting up a business or taking on a new project or expedition. I think the risks that we take are all relative to the risk-taker.~Ann Bancroft


Life Business Courage

I never intended being a business person I wanted to be a fashion designer.~Anna Sui

I was raised with a sense of entrepreneurship - my father owned a roofing business, and I grew up with the idea that you never want someone telling you what you can and cannot do.~Anthony Mackie

The problem with growing up in a cafe was the cafe never closed, my parents worked every day of the year from morning to night. So it was a big menagerie of kids, business and cooking!~Anthony Minghella

You can say what you want to about a rapper in a movie, but look at what Ice Cube has done. Ice Cube has created more opportunities for other actors to get jobs in this business than some actors have.~Anthony Anderson


Business Opportunities

I know I did the right thing by taking time off to raise my son. But it also came at a price. I turned down many opportunities over the years because I didn't want to leave him for long periods of time. And in Hollywood, as in any business, the calls stop coming when you don't answer.~Arsenio Hall

The most wonderful time to be in the art world was in the sixties, because it wasn't a business - there was no business of doing art.~Arne Glimcher

I hope the business sense that artists like Jay-Z and Nelly are showing rubs off on the young players. I want somebody to stand up and say, Look, these kids got it going on. We want to be a part of them.~Antonio Davis

I was never in the business of trying to put my name out there - I was really focused on music and records and being in the studio.~Ariel Rechtshaid

Governments, whether right or left, have become commissioners-in-chief, nudging and cajoling networks into preferred business models without the slightest sensitivity or awareness of what the public wants or the TV industry is capable of.~Armando Iannucci

Firms need to ensure that their ability to provide effective customer service keeps pace with their growth. If you're marketing your firm to new customers, you better be able to provide them service when they do business with you.~Arthur Levitt

I just wanted to be a businessman, and to me, the best way to understand business was to be an accountant.~Aubrey McClendon

American business would be run better today if there was more alignment between CEOs' interest and the company. For example, would the financial crisis of 2008 have occurred if the CEO of Lehman and Morgan Stanley and Goldman and Citibank had to take a very small percentage of every mortgage-backed security... or every loan they made?~Aubrey McClendon

While my trips are most often focused on business, I always try to take some time to experience the local culture.~Aslaug Magnusdottir

The older I get, the more I realize the importance of maintaining an even temperament - not getting too emotional, focusing on the task at hand. You don't want to make a business deal based on your emotions.~Aaron Diehl

My father was trained as a saddler, but in fact as a young man worked in his father's business of rearing and selling cattle, so he grew up in the countryside.~Aaron Klug

If you can serve everyone who visits you, you must be doing well in business.~Ahmet Davutoglu


Business Doing You

There's a fundamental problem with how the software business does things. We're asking people who are masters of hard-edged technology to design the soft, human side of software as well. As a result, they make products that are really cool - if you happen to be a software engineer.~Alan Cooper


Business Technology Cool

I'm constantly looking for ways to learn and elevate your craft, patience for yourself, and patience for this business. It's not a fair business. You may be great, but it may take years for someone to notice what you're capable of because of politics.~Aldis Hodge

Once you understand business models you can then start prototyping business models just like you prototype products.~Alexander Osterwalder


Business Start You

The same products, services or technologies can fail or succeed depending on the business model you choose. Exploring the possibilities is critical to finding a successful business model. Settling on first ideas risks the possibility of missing potential that can only be discovered by prototyping and testing different alternatives.~Alexander Osterwalder


Business Successful

You need to be naive enough to do things differently. No big publishing house would have allowed us to co-create a fully designed, four color business book in landscape format - because it was contrary to the publishing industry logic. However, we thought of Business Model Generation as a product, not just a book - similar to Apple products.~Alexander Osterwalder


Business Book Generation

Founders go wrong when they start to believe their business plan will materialize as written. I advise entrepreneurs to burn their business plan - it's simply too dangerous to the health of your business.~Alexander Osterwalder


Business Health Believe

Greece is not an easy country to do business in.~Ali Babacan


Business Easy Country

To say the Internet is the death of books and movies is like saying someone invented a new, more efficient kind of cup and it heralds the death of coffee - a new improved form of carrying something, which is essentially what the Internet is, should be helpful to our business.~Alison Owen


Death Business Coffee

The luckiest person in the world is somebody who is born into a small, shabby-genteel town on a major railway connection with 24,000 souls and a bird sanctuary and whose grandfather owns a farm and whose father owns a business -whose family is mildly prosperous but not rich, which means you can leave the town.~Allan Gurganus

I'm in a stage where I feel like I need to retrain my mind, because since the beginning of my career, I've been such a fighter and a little hustler and someone who just tried to stay afloat in this business.~Ali Larter

We have never seen a sport as a business, and we have this great passion for football. QPR are not a trophy asset. If we had wanted a trophy asset, there were more glamorous clubs we could have bought.~Amit Bhatia

My family couldn't be more supportive. They're worried and they're always in my business, and my mother does send me grad-school applications every now and again.~Ana Ortiz

This is a very screwed-up business. Record labels don't sign a lot of bands these days. We just want to find a home and stay there and make records and do our thing and not have to look over our shoulder.~Andy Taylor

I've been in this business for a long time, and I no longer think that anything that I do by way of clarification is ever going to eradicate the mistakes.~Ann Beattie

I started in the restaurant business at the age of 19 as a waitress. I loved the atmosphere and the camaraderie of the restaurant business. I loved not having to go to an office. I loved making people happy.~Anne Burrell

The business of the law is to make sense of the confusion of what we call human life - to reduce it to order but at the same time to give it possibility, scope, even dignity.~Archibald MacLeish

If a lobbyist sets up shop, or a lawyer, in which they're receiving income through what is something like a tax loophole so that it's not counting as corporate income, that is what this is counting as a small business.~Austan Goolsbee

When people say Jerry Lee Lewis invented rock n' roll, they forget Little Richard. People talk about Elvis Presley and forget he was singing black music. I don't blame Elvis. It was the music business figuring it could make more money from this music if it weren't presented from the original source.~Ato Essandoh

For policy makers interested in using tax policy to stimulate investments or especially to smooth business cycle fluctuations, the results are not promising.~Austan Goolsbee

I believe - I'm not a political expert, but I believe there is a broad consensus, a middle ground if you will, that Democrats and Republicans, business people and workers can agree on, to get this - the economy growing faster, getting people back to work.~Austan Goolsbee

The share of income that small business people are paying in taxes is the lowest it has been in 65 years - since Obama has cut taxes 18 or 22 times for small business.~Austan Goolsbee

I don't think any business has to give up legal protections in order to simplify. The main consideration is that whatever protection, rights and remedies a corporation wants, they should be put in terms that are understandable to the consumer.~Alan Siegel

Other than my sexuality, I am vulnerable regarding my physical appearance, as I am not what people considered ideal by most standards. For the entertainment business, I am not the body type of what is typically cast for television or movies.~Alex Newell

My construction business represents 10 or 20 times what I'll ever invest in football. But from the moment I bought the Chargers, I would become forever known as the owner of that NFL franchise.~Alex Spanos

I wanted to be a columnist so badly that I took a huge pay cut to leave Forbes, which wouldn't give me a column, and join Newsday, which wanted my column for its Sunday business section.~Allan Sloan


Business Sunday Me

When I started writing a business column 15 years ago, I knew I'd found the perfect job for myself. As a columnist I could pick my own topic, do my own analysis, say what I wanted to say and attribute it to myself. Best of all, I could write in my own voice.~Allan Sloan

I am kind of a private person, so I don't miss that part of show business at all. Looking back on my career in television and making a movie like 'The Sound of Music' from an adult point of view, it actually seems kind of unreal. I was involved in shows that people grew up with - that hold memories for them - and it's a cool feeling.~Angela Cartwright

To some extent, the idea that rock 'n roll used to have this sort of free antediluvian identity, frolicking in the 1950s with Elvis or something, is totally wrong. It's insane. Elvis' relationship with Colonel Parker, his manager, was one of the most possibly corrupt, certainly lucrative, and intense business partnerships ever in rock n' roll.~Ann Powers

I initially wanted to work in the music industry more on the A&R side. While I was in school, I began working in the New Business department of an advertising firm, and very quickly I was responsible for roughly 70% of their business, so you could say I had a natural knack for the advertising world.~Adam Kluger

I don't think it ever does any harm in any business to feel that there is someone there who cares about it. If you look at any business, fashion being the most obvious, the aura, or the reality of the designer, is part of what creates it. It's true in luxury goods stores and in good food stores. It leaves a palpable sense that someone cares.~Andre Balazs
