songs for entrepreneurs

Let’s face it, building a business is hard.

It’s a process that requires focus and a never-ending motivation.  And that’s why I thought it would be helpful to provide a list of inspirational songs that will give you the extra push that’s needed sometimes!

After the incredible response I got on last year’s article, 47 Inspirational Songs for Young Entrepreneurs, I figured it was time for Part 2. I’ve taken song suggestions from young entrepreneurs all over the world, and have compiled a list I believe is better than last years. With the mixture of genres I’ve included, there should be something to help inspire everyone!

1.  Live Your Life – T.I. [feat . Rihanna]

“But you know what, at the end of the road through all the adversity, if you can get where you wanted to be, you remember whatever don’t kill you make you stronger, and all of the adversity was worth it.”

2.  Make The Money – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

“Make the money, don’t let the money make you.  Change the game, don’t let the game change you.”

3.  Lose Yourself – Eminem (Explicit)

“Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity. To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment.  Would you capture it or just let it slip?

6.  Work Hard, Play Hard – Wiz Khalifa

“The bigger the bill, the harder you ball.  Well I’m throwing mine, cause my money long.”

7.  Hall of Fame – The Script [feat. will.i.am]

“Standing in the hall of fame (yeah).  And the world’s gonna know your name (yeah).”

8. This Is Your Life – Switchfoot

“This is your life, are you who you want to be?  This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?”
