Learn how to Confidently Start a Business
8 Disney Quotes for Entrepreneurs
One thing I love is great quotes. For me, the right quote can be just the motivation and encouragement I need when I am feeling overwhelmed or discouraged with my business. Often, I look for ones to help inspire my business venture and to show me a different point-of-view. I even have a Pinterest board dedicated just to business quotes that I love! Another thing I love is Disney. In fact, I am writing this post as I sit in our hotel room at Disney World. So, what’s better than awesome business quotes? Disney quotes for entrepreneurs!
After reading countless of quotes, I selected the top eight Disney quotes for entrepreneurs. These quotes are not ones that you might expect. While Walt Disney himself has said many great words about business, leadership, and customer service, the quotes below are not directly his. Instead, these are quotes spoken by characters within Disney movies. While none of them mention business directly, I think they all provide a message of encouragement for all entrepreneurs.
Even miracles take a little time. – Cinderella
While it might seem like some companies reach success overnight, no one does. It takes time and much work to achieve the success everyone sees. You will have successes along the way, but your miracle triumph will take time.
When you got your pals, you got all you need. – Oliver and Company
The most important action you can take for your company is to network. Networking gives you the ability to inform people about your company, connect with customers, and form lasting business relationships. The business relationships, your business pals, will highly contribute to your success and help you through your struggles.
In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. – Mary Poppins
Creating and running a business is hard work. Find the fun in every task when possible. Love what you do, and your work will not feel so much like work. Also, when you’re stuck doing the not-so-fun activities, remember that the quicker you can check them off your to-do list, the faster you can move on to jobs that you enjoy.
Always let your conscience be your guide. – Pinocchio
Throughout business, you will face tough decisions. You also might encounter times when you have to decide between the right thing and the easy thing. Listen to your gut; it will help you select what needs to be done even if the choice seems tough.
The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. – The Lion King
You will make mistakes while running your business. When looking back, some mistakes will be painful no matter how far in the past they occurred. However, you need to try again, either with the same idea or with something new, if you want to succeed. Learn from your failures and keep moving forward.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Winnie the Pooh
You got this! While you might feel like an imposter, you have so much more going for you than you realize. Very few entrepreneurs feel confident as they grow their businesses. Just like you will, they learned along the journey that they had what it took. Just like them, you got this!
I’m the village crazy lady. It’s my job. – Moana
As an entrepreneur, you are your brand. Your personal branding impacts your business brand more than you realize. You must live your brand every day, in every situation like it is your job.

Today is a good day to try. – The Hunchback of Note Dame
Taking the first leap into business is hard. You can always think of a million reasons why it is not the perfect time or why your ideas will not work.

Do not let fear hold you back and work today to get one step closer to your goals.
