I love to use quotes on my Instagram feed, either on the image or in the caption (or both!)

I don’t always have the available functioning brain cells to write up one of those long, amazing, relatable and witty Instagram captions. But I don’t just want to resort to using a couple emojis either. That’s why I always have lists of quotes saved on my phone, computer, Pinterest board, ect. Everyone loves a good quote! The trouble is, a lot of the good quotes are over used or a little cliché, maybe a little too angry, or maybe even a little too optimistic.

So I’ve come up with a list of some of my favorite inspirational (and motivational) quotes. These are especially helpful for us female entrepreneurs who want to post regularly and connect to our audience in a meaningful way, and be able to keep the caption short and sweet sometimes. Feel free to use any or all of these, along with accompanying images. Enjoy!
