Ringelmann's relentless goal orientation is often credited for the company's success. She says, having clear objectives helps you attract innovative and mission-driven people, who do whatever they can to assist with achieving goals. And, having a team with a breadth of experience, diverse perspectives, and original ideas, is also vital for problem solving.
To show our admiration for Indiegogo’s transformative, and often charitable, work; we bring you Ringelmann’s top quotes around success and building motivation!
"I wanted to start a company where we put the power back into the hands of the people.”
"To get a company off the ground, initially you might need to roll up your sleeves and do everything. But when you’re larger, you’ll create more value for the company by leveraging the strengths of others."
"Expect self-doubt when you are building something new and important for the world."
"Entrepreneurship is simply taking an idea and turning it into reality. It requires a clear vision for what's possible, a strong 'why' or 'reason for being' to warrant that vision, and a robust resilience to guide you through the many forms of resistance (rejection, ridicule, self-doubt) until you realize that vision."
"A great entrepreneur is someone who keeps saying 'yes' to what's possible, when the world is saying 'no' to the unknown."
