At The Collier Companies, we value entrepreneurship.
Initiative, innovation, creativity, resourcefulness: these all are core to our company culture, a deep part of who we are and how we define ourselves.
An entrepreneur is a person with an idea and the will to see that idea to fruition, and who accomplishes more with less than others think possible.
Entrepreneurship is not confined to business; there are social, environmental, and community entrepreneurs.
Mahatma Gandhi is an excellent example of someone who accomplished the impossible with little more than his vision, his will, his determination.
Whenever someone says that something is impossible, that the odds are too long, I reply, “I’m glad you were not whispering that into George Washington’s ear at Valley Forge.”
Entrepreneurs find it invigorating to set challenging goals. We find that stretch goals bring out the best in us, BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals) excite us.
“Think big. Small ideas lack the power to stir men’s souls.”
“Where there is a will, there is a way.”
“Sometimes people have a million reasons why they can’t, when all they need is one reason why they must.”
