Ben Casnocha, a 19 year-old entrepreneur and author, has created a wiki of Business Rules of Thumb.

This repository already has a broad collection of quotes and advice, including topics on advertising, product development, negotiation, and investing. Here are a few of the editor’s picks:

People don’t steal ideas. Ideas are cheap. Implementation makes the difference. – Seth Godin

Rather than telling an associate, “You look good in that suit,” tell the person, “That suit looks good on you.” – Dale Carneigie

The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint: a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points. – Guy Kawasaki
