Want to learn from some of the most successful entrepreneurs on the planet and model their success? Here are their rules and how you can apply them to grow your business. Learn from Richard Branson, Pierre Omidyar, Mark Cuban, Jerry Weintraub, Jay Z, Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak, and Howard Schultz.

1. Richard Branson, Virgin

“Do everything you can to survive and not to give up. As long as you tried everything you can, then if you fail you will sleep okay.”

2. Pierre Omidyar, eBay

“Don’t let people who you may respect and who you believe know what they’re talking about. Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done because often they will tell you it can’t be done and it’s just because they don’t have the courage to try.”

3. Mark Cuban, Broadcast.com

“No matter how many times you fail really doesn’t matter, all it takes is one hit then everybody call you overnight success.”

4. Jerry Weintraub, WEG

“Any time an obstacle presented itself, I use that to my advantage and made it work. I never heard the word no, if I heard the word no it meant maybe yes.”

5. Jay Z, Rapper

“They have read a bunch of books, but i have read bunch of life”

6. Michael Dell, Dell

“People that look for great ideas to make money are merely as successful as those who say okay what I really love to do, what am I excited about, what I knew something about.”

7. Jeff Bezos, Amazon

“I’m gonna put the vast majority of my energy, attention and dollars into building a great product or service and put a smaller amount into shouting about it, marketing it, because I know if I’m creating a great product or service, my customers will tell each other.”

8. Elon Musk, Tesla

“Make sure that whatever you are doing is a great product or service.”

9. Steve Wozniak, Apple

“Don’t necessarily think that you have to have the home-run and the huge apple computer on your first start. I spent a long time in my life building little devices for fun. For fun is one of the key things, that drives you thinking, thinking, thinking and make it better, better and better.”

10. Howard Schultz, Starbucks

“Don’t allow anyone, friend, family, acquaintance, teachers whoever anyone to tell you, that what you are dreaming for yourself and your family is not possible, it is possible.”
