    I have heard a lot of great leadership quotes in my life but I have to say “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me” by Ayn Rand is one of my favorites. No one is going to hold your hand to success, but there will surely be a lot of obstacles. Love this one, thanks!
