You’ve got talent, great ideas, and plenty of ambition. You know that it’s just a matter of time before you’re entrepreneurial spark catches fire and ignites an explosion of consumer interest. Still, even the best young entrepreneurs need to keep their spirits up when things are challenging. These songs will keep you going as you build on your concepts and develop your business.

1.     Billionaire (Travie McCoy)

This song captures the heart of the entrepreneur’s dream. McCoy sings about everything he would do if he were a billionaire, about how that fantasy is always lurking, always driving him “every time I close my eyes.” It’s a great inspirational song because it encourages you to keep a vision of what you want your life to be no matter what happens, and to set goals for what you’d do with your success.

Songs for Inspiration

2.     Mean (Taylor Swift)

When you’re on your journey to the business big leagues, you’re undoubtedly going to have people who tell you “no,” or “you can’t” or even “don’t be stupid.” There are going to be people to want you to give up on everything you want to achieve. This song is a fantastic reminder that you shouldn’t let those kinds of comments stop you or get you down and that, one day, you’re going to overcome and leave those who put you down in the dust.

3.     (It’s My Life) Bon Jovi

As an entrepreneur, you’re probably coming to realize that success requires you to take some chances. You’ve got to just go for it sometimes. This classic song pushes you, reminding you that you are in control of your destiny and to grab the opportunities that come to you in ways that leave you with no regrets.

4.     Heart of a Champion (Nelly)

Making it in business means having an internal drive to succeed that squashes the doubts of everyone around you. It means being proud of yourself enough to stand up for what you can do and believe in. In this song, Nelly raps about how no one can beat him or hold him down because he’s got the “heart of a champion.” You bring that same attitude to the corporate table and you’ll make it.

5.     Fight Another Day (Addison Road)

Not everything in business goes perfectly. In fact, sometimes things are downright disastrous. But you do not need to stay broken. You can learn from what happens and come up with bigger, bolder and better ideas and strategies. This song reminds you that, through whatever heartbreak you might face, you’ve got to get up and keep fighting. The courage to do this is what separates the barely-making-it businesspeople from the ones who become household names.

6.     One Step at a Time (Jordin Sparks)

Getting a start as an entrepreneur can be tough. (Okay, really tough.) You likely will find yourself frustrated and impatient, wanting things to be easier and to move faster. This is especially the case if you’re doing a lot of your business work on your own without a strong support network. This work reassures you that everything will fall into place when its meant to. It reminds you to have faith in what you’re doing and that, if you just keep at it, little by little, you’ll get where you want to go.
