Being a great entrepreneur is, amongst other things, about building something great – a product or service that users love and which is shaped by your vision and passion. But getting from $0 to $1m ARR isn’t easy. It’s never simply a case of build it and they will come. Even if you’re a seasoned start-up founder, battle hardened even, there’s always a new hack to learn. Whether it’s reading startup blog posts, recommended books from your favourite SaaS sage or going to meet-up events, only a fool or an old dog would argue they can’t be taught new tricks.
Here’s our five favourite quotes on the importance of learning and knowledge and how this can help you not only as an entrepreneur, but in enriching your personal life as well.
