“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas,
but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”
Nolan Bushnell - Entrepreneur
