Best-Ever Entrepreneurship Quotes: Week 17

Continuing our series of powerful motivational quotes personally selected to get your week off to an inspiring start.

This week: how to keep a customer.

“Get to know your clients. Go where they are. Try to meet with them as often as you can without making a pest of yourself. Shake their hands and look them in the eye, and always follow through with what you say.”

- Anonymous Canadian entrepreneur, from the June 1999 issue of PROFIT Magazine

This was from a story called “The Best Startup Advice You’ll Ever Get” – in which we quoted every single entrepreneur on the PROFIT 100 list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Sure, some were better than others, and there was some duplication, but every single piece of advice they offered was a gem.

PROFIT’s Kim Shiffman compiled a similar article in June 2006, but I just realized it’s not online. I’ll email them and suggest they post it for all to see.
