Introducing: Create & Thrive InspirationBombs!

You might notice there’s a new page up top there… say hello to Create & Thrive InspirationBombs!

I know it’s probably lame and cheesy to admit… but I love a good inspirational quote as much as the next person.

However, I wasn’t sure where to find a lovely, bright, visually-appealing compendium of quotes relevant to creative business people like you and I.

So, I decided to create one!

A few times a week, I’ll be adding new InspirationBombs to the site. They’ll also be over on Pinterest, and no doubt I’ll share them on the FB page, too.

I am VERY keen to include quotes from female entrepreneurs, as well as our modern favourites in the creative industries (I’m looking at you, Seth Godin, Tara Gentile, and Jonathan Mead!).

If you have a particular favourite quote that fits, please head on over and leave it in the comments here so I can turn it into an InspirationBomb.

Oh, and of course, please feel free to share these wherever you so desire.

Hope you enjoy them!

Great Idea!! This quote is not from any female entrepreneur, but fitting I think, considering one of the main things that hold (particularly) women back, is confidence. So here goes…..
“You are better than you think you are. You can do more than you think you can.” Western States 100 Race Director.
