Jason Navallo interviews various industry leaders for his book American Dream.  My favorite quotes from the book are:

I believe luck is a big factor and rarely acknowledged to the extent it should be.  I’ve also encountered a lot of people who were born on third base, and they believe they’ve hit a home run.  – Peter Mallouk

Purpose enables us to see adversity as a learning opportunity rather than a loss.  – Ben Caballero

Serve with passion.  Do the right thing.  Do what you say you’re going to do.  And make it great.  – Shelly Sun

Treat people with respect, regardless of their position.  – Scott Gerber

The most common mistake entrepreneurs make is expecting success to be a given or to happen overnight.  Setting achievable goals and continually reevaluating and setting new ones, once those are met, is very important when starting and building a new business.  – Liz Elting

Can-Do-Attitude

My friend needed her Nissan Rouge hauled from Indiana back to Alabama.

I have a Jeep with an 8 cylinder, 5.7 liter engine, and a tow/haul package.  I also love road trips, so I volunteered.

As I was preparing for the trip, people kept asking me questions like:

“Do you know how to load a car onto a car dolly?” 

I have no clue.

“Have you ever hauled anything before?”

No, this will be my first hauling experience.  Basically, I have no idea what I am doing.  However, I do have a can-do-attitude and I will get this job done.  🙂

I am proud to report, I dropped off the Nissan last night and my trip was successful.
