WOOHOO!!! It’s the first day of the 4th quarter of 2016. Boy, what a difference 9 months makes. I entered into this year in a very different place that I am right now. I remember coming across this meme in January that said “2016 is going to be amazing”….and it has been. But not without a few bumps.
As mompreneurs we all have our bad days, but we keep charging forward believing in our hearts that we are needed, our families are worth the sacrifice, and those we serve depend on us. As I live out my mompreneur dream, I can’t deny my need for a daily dose of motivation. And lately, I needed it like never before. I’ve needed the type of motivation that reminds me that I was created to live a life of purpose, in abundance, and financially free.
One of the best ways that I choose to lift my spirit and remind myself that my happiness comes from within, is by reading quotes that inspire me to live on purpose, pursue my dreams, and stimulate my mind to think strategically.
So I’ve come up with a list of 31 of my favorite quotes that will motivate you and contribute to your overall success. Please share these quotes every day during the month of October on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you never know if someone in your circle needs the motivation.

October will be a wonderful entrance into the 4th quarter of 2016! Use your time wisely, plan for your future and live in the moment. Share this blog post so that others can join our month of motivation. I would love to hear which of the quotes listed resonated with you the most.
As I read through each of these motivational quotes, it’s hard to choose which one resonated with me the most because as a Mom, Mompreneurs, Mom Manager, and Mom Coach there is not a day that goes by that I may need to hear one, two or three of these motivational quotes. I am framing this blog post so when I am having my moment I pick my motivation!
