Get Motivated: Kevin O’Leary
“You don’t do it for money. It’s not about greed. It’s about personal freedom. The reason you want to be an entrepreneur is to be able to do whatever you want with your time anytime you want. That’s the whole idea. It’s to set yourself free to pursue the dreams you have.”
— Kevin O’Leary
