The opportunities of man are limited only by his imagination. But so few have imagination that there are ten thousand fiddlers to one composer.
The Internet offers opportunities that are more unique than ever before. With TV, I know I'm making 22 minutes; I know there's a commercial in the middle. With the Internet, no one knows anything. No rules.
You don't just luck into things as much as you would like to think you do. You build step by step, whether it is friendships or opportunities.
I'd be foolish not to take some of these opportunities that are coming my way.
Motherhood was the great equaliser for me; I started to identify with everybody... as a mother, you have that impulse to wish that no child should ever be hurt, or abused, or go hungry, or not have opportunities in life.
I'm raised by a single mom and didn't have pops around for the most part of my life. And she, by any means necessary, gave me the best opportunities that she knew how to give me.
Opportunities are often things you haven't noticed the first time around.
Pessimism doesn't grow your business or even maintain the status quo. The pessimists on your staff make the job harder for everyone around them. They make difficulties out of opportunities.

James E. Faust
