25 Marketing Quotes from the ‘Top Dads’ in the Industry

What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than to remember all the wonderful lessons we’ve learned from the history-making fathers of our time? We hope you’ll be inspired by these 25 excellent quotes from the modern fathers of marketing and technology.

“I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” –Steve Jobs

“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.” –Elon Musk

“In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” –Mark Zuckerberg

“A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.” – Jeff Bezos

“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.” –Bill Gates

“All products are asking things of their customers: to do things in a certain way, to think of themselves in a certain way—and usually that means changing what one does or how one does it; it often means changing how one thinks of oneself.” – Stewart Butterfield

“In fact, technology has been the story of human progress from as long back as we know. In 100 years people will look back on now and say, ‘That was the Internet Age.’ And computers will be seen as a mere ingredient to the Internet Age.” –Reed Hastings

“Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” -Jack Ma

“Ideas are not important in China – execution is.” -Ma Huateng

“Lots of companies don’t succeed over time. What do they fundamentally do wrong? They usually miss the future.” –Larry Page

 “I’ve always respected those who tried to change the world for the better, rather than just complain about it.” –Michael Bloomberg

“I don’t spend my time pontificating about high-concept things; I spend my time solving engineering and manufacturing problems.” –Elon Musk

“People don’t care about what you say, they care about what you build.” –Mark Zuckerberg

“What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy.” – Jeff Bezos

“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” –Steve Jobs

“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other.” –Bill Gates

“Ensuring that the pieces all come together is not someone else’s job. It is your job, no matter what your title is and no matter what role you play. The pursuit of that purpose should permeate everything we do.” –Stewart Butterfield

“Most entrepreneurial ideas will sound crazy, stupid and uneconomic, and then they’ll turn out to be right.” –Reed Hastings

“Invention is not enough. Tesla invented the electric power we use, but he struggled to get it out to people. You have to combine both things: invention and innovation focus, plus the company that can commercialize things and get them to people.” –Larry Page

“Before you’re 30, work for a small company, learn passion; learn to dream.” -Jack Ma

“A bad strategy will fail no matter how good your information is, and lame execution will stymie a good strategy. If you do enough things poorly, you will go out of business.” –Bill Gates

“That’s been one of my mantras—focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” –Steve Jobs

“The first step is to establish that something is possible; then probability will occur.” –Elon Musk

“Advertising works most effectively when it’s in line with what people are already trying to do.” –Mark Zuckerberg

“The balance of power is shifting toward consumers and away from companies… The right way to respond to this if you are a company is to put the vast majority of your energy, attention and dollars into building a great product or service and put a smaller amount into shouting about it, marketing it.” –Jeff Bezos
