15 Bold Marcus Sheridan Quotes to Feed Your Creative Hunger Blog Feature

marcus-sheridan2.jpgMarcus Sheridan's roar is as big as his reputation.

Once a struggling entrepreneur, Marcus is now a renowned speaker, author, and president of one of the leading content marketing and HubSpot agencies in the world -- The Sales Lion.

Just a team of four, The Sales Lion travels the globe helping organizations of all shapes and sizes grow through lively workshops, personalized training sessions, and inspirational coaching.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling pretty starved for inspiration myself lately.

Maybe it’s the rainy lull New England seems to be stuck in or perhaps it’s just your average creative rut; whatever caused it, I realized this weekend I needed a fix and fast

So, I turned to Marcus.

As a marketer or creative, I’m sure you’ve felt the same at some point or another, so to help both of us kick the creative blues, I’ve compiled this list of inspirational (and many, bold) quotes from Marcus Sheridan.

Read them, scribble them in your notebook (or across your walls if you have to), and take them to heart! 

1. “The old ways aren’t coming back.” [Click to Tweet]
