9 entrepreneurs share their best business advice best business advice

The world's most successful business people reveal the wisdom they picked up while building their empires
Regardless of how we define it, success can feel like a fleeting and often elusive target. It takes confidence, passion, and drive to reach a level of success and then do what's necessary to sustain it.
Here are wisdoms from nine prominent CEOs and entrepreneurs who have seen drastic ups and downs throughout their careers. Their advice is as appropriate for someone just starting out as for an industry veteran.

1 Steve Jobs Co-founder and former CEO, Apple
“You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.“

2 Steve Wozniak Co-founder, Apple
“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worthy every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design and build.“

3 Jack Dorsey Co-founder and CEO, Twitter
“Make every detail perfect and limit the number of details to perfect.“

4 Marissa Mayer CEO, Yahoo
“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that's how you grow. When there's that moment of `Wow, I'm not really sure I can do this', and you push through those moments, that's when you have a breakthrough.“

5 Mark Cuban Serial entrepreneur and `Shark Tank' investor
“Do the work. Outwo rk . Outthink.Out-sell your expectations. There are no shortcuts.“

6 Richard Branson Founder and chairman, Virgin Group “My mother always taught me never to look back in regret, but to move on to the next thing. The amount of time people waste dwelling on failures rather than putting that energy into another project, always amazes me.“

7 Aaron Levie Co-founder and CEO, Box
“Products evolve based on assumptions that eventually become outdated. This is every incumbent's weakness and startup's opportunity.“

8 Michael Dell Founder and CEO, Dell Technologies
“Be crazy and don't seek too much advice on what you propose to do.“

9 Marc Andreessen Serial entrepreneur and partner, Andreessen Horowitz
“Read Steve Martin's book Born Standing Up.Seriously. `Be so good they can't ignore you'.“
