7. “Don’t get seduced by the “overnight” success stories. Most of them are total B.S. My financial and business success has grown slowly, steadily and organically over time.

– Marie Forleo, Founder of B-School and Best-Selling Author

9. “I’m very, very focused on my children. In fact, I’m very religious about having breakfast with them every morning, having dinner with them every evening, and spend all the weekends with them that I don’t work. So as long as I’m not traveling, I’m always with them and I go to their soccer and tennis matches. After dinner we’d just sit together and do homework with my children because they need help. I love doing that. It also makes me realize the world is so much wider than just your business world.”

– Zhang Xin, CEO of SOHO China
