Best Entrepreneurship Quotes: Week 35

Time now for your motivational Quote of the Week, personally selected for business relevance and inspiration.

Here's the worldview of Stéphan Crétier, founder and CEO of Montreal-based Garda World Security Corp., the 5th largest company on this year’s PROFIT 100. I used this gem of advice, collected this spring by PROFIT Magazine, to close out my speech on Success Secrets of Quebec's Fastest-Growing Companies, at the Visa Small Business Big Thinking conference in Montreal today.

“Keep the mindset of a child who wants to build. Keep the mindset of a leader, who wants to go forward.
And if your accountant, your attorney and your banker say you shouldn’t be doing something, it is probably best that you do it.”

Following this credo is what got Conrad Black in trouble.
