Inspirational Quote from Steve Jobs
Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that
were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it.
You can build your own things that other people can use. — Steve Jobs
This is not only true about computers, software, iPhones, and iPads.
It’s also true of novels, poetry, screenplays, books, ebooks, videos,
audio books, websites, blogs, and other information products.
You can build what others will value.
You can write books that entertain people.
You can write books that educate and inform people.
You can write books that inspire people.
You can write books that alert people to changes that need to be made.
You can write books that enlighten the world. — John Kremer
