Business Growth Quotes A-Z by Author Business Growth Quotes A-Z by Author

I think that our fundamental belief is that for us growth is a way of life and we have to grow at all times.
Mukesh Ambani - Ambition - Change - Business Growth

The organizational architecture is really that a centipede walks on hundred legs and one or two don’t count. So if I lose one or two legs, the process will go on, the organization will go on, the growth will go on.
Mukesh Ambani - Ambition - Change - Partnership - Business Growth


As long as we place millions of Indians at the canter of our thought process, as long as we think of their welfare, their future, their opportunities for self realization we are on the right track. For India can grow, prosper, flourish only if they grow, prosper, flourish. We cannot grow by any esoteric strategies. Our purchasing power, our economic strength, our marketplace all depends on the prosperity of our people.
Mukesh Ambani - Growth - Change - Economy - Encouragement


We call it infectious impatience. That's his hallmark and we are trying to inculcate it in the entire organization. Infectious impatience. So that things not only get done but get done in double quick time.
Mukesh Ambani - Action - Inspirational - Business Growth


China has really succeeded because of its stability. So my feeling is, how are they going to maintain this fantastic stability in a very fast changing economic situation. I think this is a challenge we face, how the global region will evolve in stability with such a fast growth. If they succeed to do that, no doubt, in the next generation it will be the major area of the world, economically.
Bernard Arnault - Globalization - China - Success - World - Economy - Challenges - Change - Growth


If we are going to carry on growing, and we will, because no country is going to forfeit its right to economic growth, we have to find a way of doing it sustainably.
Tony Blair - Environmental - Economy - Growth


I'm a big believer in growth. Life is not about achievement, it's about learning and growth, and developing qualities like compassion, patience, perseverance, love, and joy, and so forth. And so if that is the case, then I think our goals should include something which stretches us.
Jack Canfield - Learning - Goals - Belief - Growth - Achievement - Compassion - Persistence - Patience - Love

Science fiction does not remain fiction for long. And certainly not on the Internet.
Vinton Cerf - Internet - Growth


The demand for organic food is growing at a remarkable rate. Consumers have made it clear that they want organic produce and every sector of the food chain is responding, with the kind of results we have just seen.
Prince Charles - Growth - Organic - Food - Consumer

Today, many companies are reporting that their number one constraint on growth is the inability to hire workers with the necessary skills.
Bill Clinton - Knowledge - Companies - Skill

We started Yahoo in about April 1994. It started out as a way for us to keep track of things that we were interested in.
David Filo - Growth - Internet

First of all we had very few users. We might have had a hundred accesses a day. So there was really no demand from the users to add their own links. Things changed over time though as our access rates doubled every month. Through word of mouth on the Net more and more people began using it.
David Filo - Growth - Marketing - Internet

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.
Mahatma Gandhi - Customers - Improvement - Business - Work - Opportunities

Carbon capture and storage, its commercial development.. is going to be the key to the future of coal. If it is successful commercially, then the Australian coal sector will be a center of prosperity and growth; if it’s not successful then it won’t be. I think in the long run it’s as simple as that.
Ross Garnaut - Emissions - Fossil Fuel - Wealth - Carbon - Carbon Capture - Coal - Australia - Growth - Prosperity - Greenhouse

The key is the Internet. The United States is by far the most advanced country in this new digital culture, so we have to be there. The Internet is the heart of this new civilization, and telecommunications are the nervous system, or circulatory system.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Internet
- Growth - American

The faster we grew, the more stores we had open, the more money we made. Employees move quickly up the ranks of a company that's growing fast. Shareholders made a lot of money. If you invested $25,000 from January 1987 to January 1994, you'd have more than a million dollars. I get a lot of personal satisfaction from that.
Wayne Huizenga - Growth - Employee - Money
- Stocks - Companies

Our philosophy has been to be fiscally conservative, so we can be operationally aggressive. We're not using borrowed money to grow. So we'll put up a store just to get there before the competition. If it doesn't work, we'll close it and lose a little equity. It won't kill us.
Wayne Huizenga - Growth - Money - Competition


We're looking for something where we can make something happen: an industry where the competition is asleep, hasn't taken advantage. It's going to be hard to find another Blockbuster, but that doesn't mean you can't have three good companies growing. The point is, we're going to be busy.
Wayne Huizenga - Growth - Companies - Competition


I really want people to know that I’ve worked hard, very hard, to get to where I am today.. this didn’t just happen overnight. I started in business over 25 years ago and have found a way to build on what I’ve learned through every partnership and opportunity.
Magic Johnson - Hard Work - Patience - Business - Learning - Partnership - Opportunity - Growth - Encouragement

It was our duty to expand. Those who cannot or will not join us are to be pitied. What we want to do, we can do and will do, together. A glorious future!
Ingvar Kamprad - Growth - Partnership - Ambition

Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.
John F. Kennedy - Freedom

In general, an asset should be sold when it has greater value to a buyer. This happens when a buyer has a complimentary business or capability that would enable them to do more with that business. Many businesses we have exited were not failures, but had simply reached a point in their life cycle where they no longer provided a core capability or served as a platform for growth.
Charles Koch - Business - Assets - Buying - Companies - Growth

Banks and other providers of credit to households have been competing vigorously to expand or protect their market share. In the process, lending standards have been progressively eroded so that lenders are now engaging in practices that would have been regarded as out of the question five or ten years ago.
Ian Macfarlane - Banks
- Competition - Risk - Growth

For equity markets, the combination of low interest rates, strong economic growth and low inflation has proved very beneficial, with global share markets rising solidly in each of the past three years. This has been underpinned by strong growth in profits so that, notwithstanding the rise in share prices, P/E ratios have been declining on average.
Ian Macfarlane - Growth - Economy - Stock Market - Profits

For years I have made the point that progress in winding back economic slack is made not by high growth in any individual year, but by maintaining an expansion over a sustained period.
Ian Macfarlane - Growth - Economy


My philosophy is that life is all about learning and growing, and that life can be a real adventure of learning, growing, compassion, and joyfulness.
John Mackey - Life - Learning
- Growth - Happiness

The fact that equities are being sold down, despite the lowest interest rates in recent history, simply means that the market doesn't see growth ahead for very many businesses.
John Malone - Investing - Markets
- Growth

You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety.
Abraham Maslow - Growth - Decisions - Encouragement

The profit motive is not only fundamental to our ability to reward shareholders and pay employees; it's fundamental to excellent journalism. Far from corrupting the craft, profits enhance it. Expansion drives diversity and diversity protects and strengthens our craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Journalism - Media
- Profits - Employee - Stocks - Strength - Diversity

We all have to expand our capabilities to encompass the changing world, its growing diversity and, indeed, its complexity.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Diversity - Change
- World

Most newspaper companies still have their heads in the sand, but other media companies are aggressive.
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Companies - Media
- Growth

You've got to look for a gap, where competitors in a market have grown lazy and lost contact with the readers or the viewers.
Rupert Murdoch - Growth - Competition - Lazy - Customers

We could make a difference just by holding our emissions steady as our businesses continue to grow. But that doesn't seem to be enough: we want to go all the way to zero. Today, I am announcing our intention to be carbon neutral, across all our businesses, by 2010.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Carbon - Growth - Ambition

We don't think of ourselves as do-gooders or altruists. It's just that somehow we're trying our best to be run with some sense of moral compass even in a business environment that is growing.
Craig Newmark - Business Ethics - Best - Growth

When you look at what Star (casino) has done for Sydney over the last fifteen years.. I don't think it has done a lot. When you look at what Crown (his casino) has done for Melbourne, I think it has done an enormous amount. And there's all sorts of statistics and figures and facts that can back those things up.
James Packer - Growth - Casino - Australia - Proud

There is no discussion inside this boardroom to say we've got to get into this or that. We look at every growth opportunity on its merits.
James Packer - Growth - Decisions - Opportunity


We just have to go at 100 miles an hour in all our businesses, be they television broadcasting, be they magazine publishing, be they subscription television, be they online, be they gaming. We just have to go at one hundred miles an hour..
James Packer - Business Growth - Companies


Our goal is long-term growth in revenue and absolute profit.. so we invest aggressively in future innovation while tightly managing our short-term costs.
Larry Page - Goal - Growth - Long Term Investing - Profits - Innovation - Revenue

Most of us carry at least one device, all the time, every day. In fact many of us would feel naked without our smartphone. It’s hardly surprising mobile search queries - and mobile commerce - are growing dramatically across the world.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Search - Gadgets - Growth

Visy Industries' past, present and future are linked by a commitment to growth, through meeting our customers' needs and the wise use and reuse of scarce resources.
Richard Pratt - Business Growth - Customers - Commitment

Our most productive investment remains our people. It is through the dedication, skills and initiative of our people that Visy Industries has prospered and will continue to move ahead.
Richard Pratt - Company Growth - Commitment - People - Employees

Money is only used for two things. One, it’s to make you comfortable, and the more comfortable you are the more creative you will become. And the other purpose is it enables you to extend the service you provide far beyond your own presence.
Bob Proctor - Money - Creativity - Growth

We still have a great amount of work to do in social development, including resolving one of the biggest challenges we face in this area, namely, reducing the gap between high-income earners and people, citizens of our country, who are still living on very modest means indeed. But we cannot, of course, adopt the solution used 80 years ago and simply confiscate the riches of some to redistribute among others. We will use completely different means to resolve this problem, namely, we will ensure good economic growth.
Vladimir Putin - Society
- Russia - Challenges - Solutions - Problems - Rich - Economy - Growth

Of all the things that can have an effect on your future, I believe personal growth is the greatest. We can talk about sales growth, profit growth, asset growth, but all of this probably will not happen without personal growth.
Jim Rohn - Self Help - Growth - Profits - Assets

It's a mistake to predict the size of markets that are so new. This model has shown no signs of slowing down. So we are going to get as much of it as we possibly can, and when we get close to that we'll figure out other problems.
Eric Schmidt - Internet - Growth

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw - Ambition - Change - Growth

We are taking an aggressive stance looking at the future of Percept, not just in numbers, but in terms of market share and size. The challenge is to continuously sustain our growth on a year-on-year basis. The 2010 figure of US$1 billion is just a benchmark figure. Looking at the market opportunities and our strengths, I am sure we will be well past this figure, come 2010.
Harindra Singh - Growth - Ambition - Strength
- Challenges

Harry is my elder brother. He is the wiser one who leads Percept, he shows us the path. My job is to run it, create the relationships, and run the business as profitably as I can. Harry acquires, merges, expands he is responsible for Percept’s growth.
Shailendra Singh - Growth - Wise

If we are not careful, capitalism will self-destruct. We will destroy it as the companies have no conscience and do not really compete.
They are so big they can't go broke, so they simply acquire everything.
Dick Smith - Capitalism - Growth - Companies

Marx was right when he said capitalism would destroy itself as capitalist would eat capitalist until they became so big they could not compete.
Dick Smith - Capitalism - Growth - Competition


I think the Tata Group’s greatest contribution to the growth of the Indian economy and Indian industry probably happened in the pre-independence era. The Group’s investments in industries such as steel, textiles, power and hotels were certainly driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, but they were driven even more, I think, by a desire to make India self-sufficient and independent of its colonial masters then.
Ratan Tata - India - Growth - Tata Group - Conglomerate - Industry - Steel - Textile - Hotel - Entrepreneurial

I am proud of my country. But we need to unite to make a unified India, free of communalism and casteism. We need to build India into a land of equal opportunity for all. We can be a truly great nation if we set our sights high and deliver to the people the fruits of continued growth, prosperity and equal opportunity.
Ratan Tata - India - Growth - Proud - Opportunity - Great - Wealth - Unity

I do not know how history will judge me, but let me say that I’ve spent a lot of time and energy trying to transform the Tatas from a patriarchal concern to an institutional enterprise. It would, therefore, be a mark of failure on my part if it were perceived that Ratan Tata epitomises the Group’s success. What I have done is establish growth mechanisms, play down individuals and play up the team that has made the companies what they are. I, for one, am not the kind who loves dwelling on the ‘I’. If history remembers me at all, I hope it will be for this transformation.
Ratan Tata - India - Tata Group - History - Success - Failure - Growth - Team

The country is now universally recognised as a nation on the move and takes its place amongst the successful economies in the region. The future potential is enormous but the country's destiny is in our hands. The time has come to move from small increments to bold, large initiatives. The time has come to stretch the envelope and set goals which were earlier not seen to be possible. The time has come for performance to be measured and for allocated funds of the government to reach the people for whom they were intended.
Ratan Tata - India - Growth - Inspirational - Wealth - Success

When a small business grows like eBay did, it has a multiplier effect. It creates other small businesses that supply it with intellectual capital, goods and services.
Meg Whitman - Small Business -
Ebay - Growth

We also need to reduce corporate tax rates. This applies to small, medium and large businesses. At 35 percent, we have the second highest corporate rates in the world. It restricts the growth of small enterprises that need to plow capital back into their businesses and forces companies and jobs to move overseas.
Meg Whitman - Small Business -
Companies - Growth - Finance - Taxes - Jobs

We can’t impede progress in the name of environmental action that yields little for the environment and even less for our people.. and we should look at the environment as an economic opportunity.
Meg Whitman - Economy -
Growth - Environmental - Greed - Opportunity

We're just going to concentrate on what we've always done, which is to create the best possible online directory, adding content and other features along the way when it makes sense.
Jerry Yang - Focus - Growth


It's tough to say, exactly, what things will look like in three to five years, but there's a lot of work to do in just moving along the path that we've already set out.
Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook - Hard Work - Growth - Change

Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.
Mark Zuckerberg - Broken - Fast - Growth
