Last Tuesday, hundreds attended Entrepreneur’s Ready to Launch event, a special conference for those looking to grow a business and make it thrive. The day-long series of panels and speeches featured a power-packed lineup that included Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran as well as thought leaders on topics such as innovation and finance.

If you didn’t have a chance to attend the event last week, we’ll be sharing highlights throughout the coming months to inspire and inform you. Until then, check out these pearls of wisdom on thinking big.

-Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran on the importance of empire building: “When you’re a brand, everyone starts to want to work for you. Everything gets easier. It’s like greasing the whole operation.”

-Trevor Owens, author of The Lean Enterprise: How Corporations Can Innovate Like Startups (Wiley, 2014), on the importance of not setting limits: “A startup is not a small version of a big company.”
