Quotes on Starting

It's Start a Website Week!

Remember, you just need to start, not finish. That means the only task to win is to take the first step!

1) Commit to start here.
2) Start building your website here

Here are quotes to pump you up to just START:

"To begin, begin."

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”

“Just because you've never done something doesn't mean you can't start.”

“The beginning is always NOW.”

“Ideas don’t come out fully formed , they only become clearer as you work on them. You just have to get started.”

“Our ability to grow is directly proportional to an ability to entertain the uncomfortable.”

"Action breeds motivation."

“Why Should I Start a Website?”

Zak gives the breakdown on why you need a simple, imperfect website.

"You don’t have to be an entrepreneur (or wannabe entrepreneur), a 'personal brand,' or a job-hunter to benefit from having a website. You don’t have to take weeks to build it. It doesn’t have to be perfect (it just has to be good enough). And you don’t need to have years of blog content on it."

You just need to have a website."
