We have teamed up with Lisa Long our very first Business Girls Ambassador to create an exciting competition inspired by the power of inspirational words. During any time of struggle, quotes can motivate us to continuing moving forward when we may be tempted to quit. Whether the hard times last a week, a month, a year, or even just a moment, quotes can sometimes mean the difference between giving up or having the courage to carry on with determination. As Truman Capote once wrote, “To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music the words make.” We are in search of your most inspirational quotes. These quotes will hold the essence of what it is like to take the journey of founding and running a small business. These quotes will inspire you, motivate you, and raise a “that’s me!” in your heart. The top quotes will be featured on our website in the new #MoreThanQuotes gallery which will be launching soon and also on social media platforms.
As with any real competition, there are prizes to be won! The winner of the “More Than Quotes” competition will receive their quote hand typographer by Lisa and given an unframed A3 print and a sweatshirt from More Than Word’s new clothing line, both featuring the quote. The shortlisted entries will all receive a print of their submitted quote as well. See below for competition terms and conditions.
We are beyond excited about working with Lisa, and we know that you will find yourselves inspired by the great work she has done and the work that she continues to do. Thank you all for your continued support of women in business. We look forward to reading all of your inspirational quotes!
