Who is your inspiration?

    Having watched the Brits take home those medals at the weekend during the Olympics, with such an amazing crowd inspiring them, it made me think about inspiration generally.

    Do you have someone that inspired you to go into business? Do you admire a particular entrepreneur or have a role model in your line of work?

    I admit im hooked on the Olympics and never thought i would be lol. I cant say ive ever looked up to or been inspired by anyone other than my parents, Im not even sure if its what you could call inspiration either as its more desire to achieve what they have or better it to have the nicer things in life, work hard, play hard.

    Haha, I knew it! It's been amazing! The crowd when Mo Farah won, wow what an atmosphere.

    I'd probably agree about my parents too, but I have to say I do admire Richard Branson and what he's achieved.

    My inspiration is one of my friend steve. When we both passed out from the same college at the same time, always want myself as an entrepreneur. After some time I opened my firm & my friend buy a business which is already in the market from some online e-commerce website. That year he is gaining about 50% more business then me. That time I realized that buying an existing business is always beneficial than starting a new business.

    My sister inspires me. She’s not a business woman, but, she has the qualities that would make a perfect business woman. Optimism is key to having success in your business. You must have the mind set of positive thinking. Look at the things that you can do, do not concentrate on the things that might hinder you.

    My inspiration is my brother who has struggled a lot but kept his nerves cool always. He succeeded eventually. He is a great man.
