11 Quotes to Get Your Rear in Gear


Last week, I shared some of my team’s recommended TED Talks for professional growth.


Today, I want to share some inspiration. Some motivation.


It’s tax extension season. IRS deadlines are looming. Accountants are pedal to the metal to complete client extensions. If you are searching for a boost – something to give you a kick of energy – take a minute to relax and read some of my favorite quotes. They’re a great way to refocus and prepare to power through those projects.
