Monday Motivation: 23 Quotes from INBOUND 2017 Speakers to Kickstart Your Week

As the final hours to INBOUND 2017 countdown, almost everyone around the office is either preparing for their presentations, making sure they have their business cards, or getting excited to meet and catch up with industry influencers and agency friends.

Are you ready?

With the opening keynote and party taking place tonight, make sure to rest up and study these non-awkward ways to break the ice and maybe add these 7 things that aren’t on the INBOUND schedule to your plans.

INBOUND is the year’s biggest inbound marketing gathering and there’s so much to do and see (including signing up for a Website Throwdown and entering to win a $500 Amazon gift card or free website redesign at the IMPACT Booth).

Obviously one of the biggest highlights is the speaker line up.

At INBOUND 2017, you certainly won’t be disappointed with the list HubSpot has put together. Ranging from writers and strategists to restaurateurs and wrestlers, there’s plenty of inspiration to be had from a variety of sources.

To help kickstart your week and get you prepped for the all-star appearances, here are quotes from 23 inspirational INBOUND 2017 speakers you shouldn’t miss!

1. Marcus Sheridan, President, The Sales Lion

“If you’re not causing people to raise eyebrows in your industry, I don’t think you’re going to make it big time. Not today.” Click to Tweet

2. Dr. Ed Catmull, President & Co-Founder, Pixar

“Don’t wait for things to be perfect before you share them with others. Show early and show often. It’ll be pretty when we get there, but it won’t be pretty along the way.” Click to Tweet

3. Paul Roetzer, Founder & CEO, PR 20/20

“Every trackable interaction creates a data-point, and every data-point tells a piece of the customer’s story.” Click to Tweet

4. Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of the United States

"Failure is an important part of your growth and developing resilience. Don't be afraid to fail." Click to Tweet

5. Dharmesh Shah, Co-Founder, HubSpot

“Instead of interrupting, work on attracting.” Click to Tweet

6. Stewart Butterfield, CEO & Co-Founder, Slack

“For most companies, the hard thing is making the product work well enough to convince a single person at a time to switch to it.” Click To Tweet

7. Rand Fishkin, Wizard of Moz

“Best way to sell something: don’t sell anything. Earn the awareness, respect, and trust of those who might buy.” Click to Tweet

8. Jeff Rosenblum, Director & Co-Writer, The Naked Brand

“Anybody looking for the safe and easy path isn’t going to create a breakthrough brand.” Click to Tweet

9. George B Thomas, Inbound & Brand Strategist, The Sales Lion

“Always set goals. Always dream. Always realize this life is what “you” make it. Make your life the best life it can be no matter how old you are. Surround yourself with the right people. Good people. Know who you are. Be your best you. Set your goals and follow your dreams. Live a journey that is always exciting.” Click to Tweet

10. Brian Halligan, Co-Founder, HubSpot

“You can’t out-spend the giants, but you can out-think, out-teach, and out-help them.” Click to Tweet

11. Ryan Deiss, CEO, Digital Marketer

“No amount of work or luck will help you if you don't have a willing and able market.” Click To Tweet

12. Bozoma Saint John, Chief Brand Officer, Uber

“I couldn’t hide, there wasn't a choice to do that. So the choice was do you try to do what everybody was doing? I couldn't be blonde, I couldn't be white. I just couldn’t be anything else, and so it meant that I had to become just all of everything that I have.” Click to Tweet

13. Larry Kim, Founder, Wordstream

“The most successful individuals never claim to be bored because they always see opportunities to learn and experiment around them. Rather than twiddling their thumbs, they are out meeting people, taking classes, reading books, and expanding their repertoire of skills and knowledge.” Click to Tweet

14. Carina Duffy, Inbound Marketing Consultant, IMPACT

“Stop asking yourselves what value you provide, and start asking your customers.” Click to Tweet

15. Danny Wajcman, COO and Co-Founder, Lucky Orange

19. Jeff White, Principal, Kula Partners

“If you tell the stories you’re interested in, they’re going to be better than the ones you know nothing about.” Click to Tweet

20. Bryan Wade, CEO, Sigstr

“Behind every growing startup is a group of talented and dedicated employees." Click to Tweet

21. Karl Sakas, Agency Consultant, Sakas & Company

“As you grow, ultimately there is no end to what you can do. Time management is less about what you do and more about what you do next.” Click to Tweet

23. Stefanie Grieser, Head of Global Markets, Partnerships & Events, Unbounce
