You may or you may not have heard of David Cottrell, a World Class Award Winning Author of The Monday Morning Choices and an Entrepreneur.

david_cottrell For the month of August, every week on Sunday Musings with Julie Syl. I held a Facebook Live show sharing lessons from David’s book “The Monday Morning Choices.”  It changed my life, I am sure it will change yours.

Anyhow, we got so inspired by what David shares in that book. We believe most of us entrepreneurs can implement the 12 lessons. So, we decided to put together a set of David Cottrell quotes – all about being an entrepreneur.

According to David, making good choices is a never-ending challenge that requires hard work and daily diligence. Life requires that we choose between alternatives every hour of the day, every day of our lives.

Of course as entrepreneurs we do make bad choices every blessed day, that seemed so right at the time. 

Our daily challenge is to live our character, action, and investment choices @DavidCottrell Click To Tweet

Our daily challenge is to live our character, action, and investment choices so naturally that we begin making the best choices almost subconsciously. This requires patience, honest reflection, adaptation, and commitment. It will also in turn attract those we seek to work with, buy from us or invest in us too! Remember you are the brand…right?
