Inspirational Business and Life Quotes

As business owners, we are very busy creatures.  Oftentimes, we need a pick-me-up, and that is what this post is designed to do.  Here are some inspirational quotes that I hope you find helpful in your life and business…

“The roles dogs play in our lives have changed,” Verplank says. “They used to be bred for a job. But dogs moved from barns to our homes and to our beds. Terriers aren’t out in the barn ratting anymore. They’re in our homes with us. They need to be clean and appealing and cuddly to share our lives.”  Melissa Verplank , Notes from the Grooming Table

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” – Buddha

“In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be, by remaining what we are.”― Max DePree, Leadership Is an Art

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

Mitch Albom (Tuesdays With Morrie)

“Think about your goals at every opportunity throughout the day.” – Brian Tracy

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.                 – Maya Angelou

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.   – Dale Carnegie

Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.   – Napoleon Hill

“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. ”   – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.   – Martin Luther King, Jr.

“With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world”   – Dalai Lama

“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.” – Dr Seuss

Dog Fancy


Last month I had the incredible opportunity to have an article in “Dog Fancy” magazine. This is a picture of me holding the issue. Called “Brushing 101“, it was about the importance of brushing our short-coated dogs. Some of the points of the article were:

  • Many short-haired dogs shed heavily, so regular brushing helps keep down the hair around your house.
  •  Brushing disperses the natural oils on the skin to the coat.
  • Brushing allows you to check your pet for skin changes, growths, injuries or parasites.
  • Regular grooming sessions can be a bonding experience for you and your pet.


It was an honor and a thrill to be featured in this magazine. I hope to do it again someday!




Due to the passing of my Father, I don’t have a regular post for this week.
