Top 100 entrepreneur under 30 by Obama

Top 10 marketer by Forbes

The biggest moat we see is a brand. Just look at Kylie Jenner; she sold 50% of her company for 600 million dollars due to her brand. That’s the power of branding


Founder of DKNY Clothing Label

American Fashion Designer

You have to believe in yourself and go for it. Who would have believed a body suit and a wrap skirt would have revolutionized the way women dressed?


Renowned Marketer & Venture Capitalist

International Bestselling Author

Founder of Wikipedia

Don’t waste too much time thinking.  Just get started.  Fail faster. This means: doing small low-cost low-risk experiments to test your ideas and be ready to change quickly.


Co-Founder & CEO at MealPal

Co-Founder of ClassPass

No one has it all figured out, but you have the potential to learn anything if you simply give yourself permission to try.


Founder of Draper Associates

Meet 4 new people a day and ask them what they do for a living. You will have a much better understanding of the world, and be far less frustrated when things aren’t working the way you want them to..

Claire Babineaux-Fontenot​

CEO of Feeding America

My upbringing shaped my life by making me aware and grateful. Aware of my privileges and grateful enough to work really hard when I was given an opportunity…All of my experiences led me to where I am now—working to end hunger for millions of families as CEO of Feeding America.

Michael Beber

President & CEO of Exiger

Motivating others can be hard – it varies a lot from person to person. It’s important to try and understand what drives each individual. I ask myself, ‘what makes this person get up in the morning?’

Dr. Wendy Osefo

Award-winning Researcher, Political Commentator, Professor & Media Personality

My belief that anything and everything is possible. People are often discouraged when they receive a “no”. Obstacles motivate me to work harder to achieve my goals.

Tim Westergren

Founder of Pandora Radio

Most people opt out of striking out on their own because they fear failure, and the regret they imagine from that. For me, the fear I carry is the regret of not trying to do something, and wishing I had.

Susan Rockefeller

Award-winning Documentary Filmmaker, Artist, and Conservationist

Musings are ideas that inspire imagination and action for a better world..

Dr. Todd Boyd

Media Commentator, Film Producer, Author, Professor

The only way to be flexible is to be fully prepared to deal with whatever comes your way.  In other words, if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. I often think about life as a performance art space..

Cathie Black

Former Chairman & President of Hearst Magazines

Making mistakes is part of any job (and in life, for that matter). One learns from mistakes and hopefully you don’t repeat the same mistake. The point is to think about what happened and why; admit it was an error and don’t try to cover the mistake up as it will just get bigger and cause more anxiety or problems

John Chambers

Former Chairman & CEO of Cisco

It’s as simple as disrupt or get disrupted. If you aren’t willing to change and evolve with the larger shifts taking place, you will get left in the dust. The key, no matter the industry, is the CEO, who has to own the transformation.

Caryl Stern

Former President & CEO of UNICEF

Find something to love – whether it be a person you are doing the work for, the cause/effort of your work, or your work in general. Finding this passion gives you the power to wake up and fill your heart to impact yourself and others. It truly provides that feeling of fulfillment and joy.

Mike Perlis

President & CEO of Forbes

Ask for forgiveness, not permission. 

Mariel Hemingway

Advocate. Activist. Author.

I believe that we all have a story and that given permission to tell it is the fist step in creating successful solutions to a balanced healthy life. I tell my story which allows people to tell their own and start the process of recovery...

Rick Stollmeyer

Founder of Mindbody

The head understands numbers, facts, and analysis, but the head can’t tell you what you want because that’s in your heart.

Elizabeth Cutler

Co-Founder of Soul Cycle

Our biggest failure was probably our biggest success. When we signed our first lease on our first location, we were told we would have exterior signage. Sadly, that was not the case. Without exterior signage, it was incredibly hard for customers to find us…literally, riders would call us outside 72nd street asking where we were located.

Chris Salgardo

Former CEO of Kiehl's

As one who was self-conscious of his own skin as a teenager, I love how the beauty industry can help men and women make themselves look and feel better, and ultimately, help build their confidence.

Alexa Von Tobel

Founder & CEO of LearnVest

I once had someone tell me that if you knew what it took to build a company, you’d never start.

Kimbal Musk

Co-Founder of The Kitchen; Board Member of Tesla Motors & SpaceX

Greatest success was the initial opening of The Kitchen in Boulder. After doing software, everyone thought I was crazy to open a restaurant. Proving that I could do it was one my proudest life achievements.

Diane Ramirez

CEO & Founder of Halstead

You have to be in the forefront of technology to really reach the buyers and excite your sellers to list with your firm. Some of the trends that I am seeing are creating new technology experiences.

Dan Carroll

Founder, Wealthfront

It became clear to me that most people don’t have access to good financial advice and it was time to do something about it. We’re seeking to deliver on what we think is going to be total financial nirvana

Georgina Bloomberg

Owner of the Equestrian Team New York Empire

“Be nice to all people. It took me 30 years to realize the importance of this and how helpful it is in life.

Nick Kenner

Founder of Just Salad

When we started it was all about calorie counts, low carb and low fat. Now it’s about local, organic and non-gmo. We feel the latter is a lasting trend and we are excited that we have been able to adjust our supply chain.

Kendra Scott

American fashion designer, Jewelry mogul, Shark Tank judge

My goal in life is to spread the message that we all have the power to leave this world better than we found it. It is our responsibility to use the talents we’re given to do good.

Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Celebrity Chef, Owner of Jean-Georges Restaurants

I am continually traveling for inspiration. I am involved with every aspect of the restaurant from concept to design, menu development and staff training.

Samantha Skey


There is a New York City “gritty kindness” and inherent hustle that is hard to replicate.

Shawn Prez

Founder of Global Spin Awards

The influx of social platforms present great opportunities for emerging musicians to be discovered, but on the flip side, it can also be challenging to get your voice heard in a crowded space. Up and coming musicians need to be strategic to get their name out there..

Heidi Zak

Co-Founder & Co-CEO of ThirdLove

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. When you start your own company you have to get used to learning how to do things that you don’t know how to do.

Larry Namer

Founder of E! Entertainment Television

Learn how to self-evaluate your efforts in as much of an impartial way as possible. The problem most entrepreneurs have is they think everything they come up with is brilliant, and they hang on too long to bad ideas.

Andy Mooney

CEO of Fender

Successful business ideas often come from simple observation of human behavior. Limited Edition footwear at Nike came from someone pulling up beside me in my used black Porsche 924 in a shiny new yellow Sebring Edition 924 Porsche and me wondering if the concept of Limited Edition would work in athletic footwear. It worked.

Roy Schwartz

President & Co-Founder of Axios

Every work day is about winning, getting ahead and continuing to adapt because if you sit still, someone is going to eat your lunch. Be ferocious about optimizing each day and each meeting so you can accomplish your goals and keep moving forward.

Abigail Disney

CEO, Fork Films & Founder, Peace is Loud Charity

You can’t do anything alone, so find partners. At the same time, don’t wait for others to start. Get out there and lead.

Tony Horton

Celebrity Trainer & Founder of P90X

The things that are out of our control lead to fear and frustration — If you focus on the things you can control, you empower yourself to achieve balance and make smarter choices.

Brooke Hil

Co-owner, Areppas

It took me nearly thirty years to learn how to love myself; after realizing that goal, I decided to create an integrative, unbiased space that introduces…

Jared Hecht

Founder of Fundera & GroupMe

I’ve always been passionate about entrepreneurship and business. What’s amazing is that given the contribution of small businesses to our economy, the odds are continually stacked against us. The number one problem small businesses face is access to capital — businesses need money to make money…

Melissa Wood-Tepperberg

Founder of Melissa Wood Health

Through movement, mindful eating, and meditation, my mission is to guide you to a place of loving and fully accepting yourself as you are.

Christian Schauf

Founder of Uncharted Supply Company

I’m the CEO, but I’m also the cleaning person. We all wear a lot of hats in this startup phase and we all share in the successes.

Megan Batoon

The "Millennial Martha Stewart”

I started posting dance videos on YouTube which turned into making personality-forward videos to help give people a break from their daily stresses.
