I love reading inspirational quotes from strong women, especially female entrepreneurs. While there are a ton of motivational quotes, many of them are written by men. These are some of my favorite business woman quotes. I hope they inspire you to be a passionate, persistent and badass business woman.
I honestly know so many women who inspire me, not just the famous ones. I would love to include some quotes from other women. If you know a business woman who inspires you, please leave a comment with their quote. I would love to add it to my list.
I love reading quotes about business and motivation. I spent several days looking for the best quotes that were actually meaningful and motivational.
Sara Blakely’s quote is one of the first quotes I ever shared on my Facebook page and it still inspires me today. If you are looking for some badass women to inspire you, I hope you enjoy my list of business woman quotes and if you have some other you love please share in the comments.
