This R2 unit has a bad motivator.” No. Worse. Fate.

 

(Insert copyright-free Star Wars image here. There is no such thing? Grumble. OK. Empty space, then.)

 

It is part of my job to seek good motivators along the journey of building this company.

From my Twitter feed, I witness so many out there putting one foot in front of the other, building companies, launching crowdfunded projects, making something happen for themselves and their loved ones.

I cheer you on. You make me feel not alone in this.

I have pulled together a list of my favorite motivators–those who encourage me to push past the dreaded “[w]hat am I thinking? This will never work… ” moment.

My favorites:

 


Gary Vaynerchuk – Raw and honest passion for what he does


 

 


Chase Jarvis – in-depth interviews from behind-the-scenes


 

 

 


Fortune – keep an eye on what the big companies are doing


 

 


Marie Forleo – fearless and warm interviews


 

 


Jonathan Fields – probing, interesting questions


 

 


TedX Talks


 


Wishing you great success on your journey.

For my readers in the US: wishing you a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving that is just the way you like it, whether it be turkey with all the fixings OR tomato soup, grilled cheese, FunYuns and Friends reruns.
