27 Inspirational Quotes to Celebrate 27 Years in Business

LetYourLightShineMmktgPg30January 1st, 1989 I opened my doors for business as The Write Direction offering my services as a direct response copywriter. Back then I had no idea that now, 27 years later, I would be an author and speaker sharing all that I’ve learned with others to help them be successful in their businesses.

To celebrate, here are 27 quotes from my book Millionaire Marketing on a Shoestring Budget. Some are my words and others come from those who have inspired me. I hope you too are inspired.
