  • “Successful people get ahead by using the time that others waste”;
  • “A person should always be at work. During the day he thinks about her, at night he dreams about her”;

Delimobil about clients

On May 30, 2021, a member of the Blue Buckets Facebook community shared a story about how he requires users to compensate for the cost of repairs in the event of an accident while renting a car and additionally charges a fine in their favor.

Lawyer's client Alexander Semyonov got into an accident while driving a rented car. As a result, Delimobil demanded to pay 97,046 rubles and 20 kopecks as a fine for getting into an accident, 485,231 rubles for repairing a Hyundai Solaris car, as well as 5,500 rubles for conducting an examination and 750 rubles and 60 kopecks for postage costs - a total of more than half a million rubles.

In comments to a discussion on Facebook, a representative of Delimobil said that all documentation is in the public domain, and that the company has the right to require its clients to pay the cost of repairing a rented car. In addition, he called the publication of the lawyer’s message slander and threatened to sue for disseminating false information.

Negotiations between Alexander Semenov and the company to reduce the amount of payments led to nothing. Moreover, on May 31, representatives of Delimobil reported attempts at blackmail on his part: Semyonov allegedly offered to deceive the media in order to reduce the amount of penalties.

Delimobil is a commercial organization that refuses to make any concessions with clients who do not respect both the company itself and other users.

However, under public pressure, the company was forced to admit that it was wrong. On the same day, May 31, she announced the appearance of a special tariff, which removes the need for those responsible for road accidents to pay for the restoration of the car and administrative costs, and also limits the fine to 10 thousand rubles.

On June 1, 2021, representatives of Delimobil announced that they were going to cancel the half-million fine to the affected user and check the style of communication with clients on social networks. As a result, the company decided to limit the maximum amount of recovery from drivers involved in an accident through their own fault to 150 thousand rubles, canceling additional fines and charges.

Tips from Ben Bernarke

Continuing to give wise quotes about money and business from great personalities, one cannot fail to mention one of the leading US economists, Ben Bernarke. He is also known for his universal advice, which is suitable for businessmen or aspiring startups, as well as ordinary workers or housewives.

  • “Failure is part of life.”

To reach the goal, a person needs only one thing - to go!

Quotes about purpose and success


In the “achievement” value system, people often turn everything upside down. They forget that success is just a “side effect” of the right intention and harmony with the whole, and not the goal. Success is a consequence. Lea Wedensky


I want my path to success to be full of fun and a sense of unity when we all set the same goals as a team. LeBron James

To reach the goal, a person needs only one thing. Go. Honore de Balzac

Praise yourself for what you have already achieved and don't get discouraged. Salma Hayek

Phrases by Peter Drucker

Peter Drucker was one of the most influential management theorists of the last century. During his eventful 95-year life, he wrote several books on management and spoke about the importance of intellectual work. He owns theories about the global market, entrepreneurial society, and innovative economy.

He knew the secret of the Japanese success - they actually work, and not just report on the work. Many residents of the eastern country work overtime and seven days a week just to improve the situation in the country. Peter Drucker said this about business: “Entrepreneurship is neither a science nor an art. This is practice." He believed that “an entrepreneur always looks for change... and seizes it as an opportunity.”

German Gref about Russia as a “downshifter country”

During the Gaidar Forum on January 15, the head of Sberbank, German Gref, said that Russia was unable to adapt its economy to new world realities and became one of the downshifter countries.

We lost the competition, to be honest.
This is technological enslavement, I would say that we are among the countries that are losing, on the list of downshifter countries. Countries and people who managed to adapt in time and invest in this are the winners today. Countries that have not had time to adapt to their own economy and [change] the entire social system and all institutions, they will lose greatly. And the gap will be greater than during the last industrial revolution. — German Gref

According to Gref, Russia needs to join the “technological revolution” by changing the education system. We need to get rid of “the old Soviet education system of cramming [into] children with a colossal amount of information,” he says.

What John Rockefeller said about business

The famous American multimillionaire in his youth wanted to live to be 100 years old and earn $100,000. But bad luck - none of this was destined to come true. Over the course of his life, Rockefeller amassed a multimillion-dollar fortune and died at the age of 97. Here are a few apt and practical aphorisms and sayings from a famous businessman:

  • “I would rather earn income from 1% of the efforts of a hundred people than from 100% of my own”;
  • “Friendship based on business is better than business based on friendship”;
  • “Patience is the first and main prerequisite for success in business”;
  • “Business growth is simply survival of the fittest”;
  • “Your well-being depends on your own decisions.”

John Rockefeller encouraged people to dream more. He was sure that a person begins to die the moment he stops dreaming and striving to achieve new heights.

For a business woman

Statuses about business women will appeal to women who have chosen a difficult way to earn money.

  1. They say that women are incapable of running their own business. I proved the opposite. Verb in your strength, in your mind and in your abilities!
  2. A woman's place is in the kitchen? Well, maybe so. I only earned money for my luxurious kitchen myself.
  3. Women can achieve more than men. We are not only persistent, but also flexible, we know how to hear our interlocutor and are ready to make mutually beneficial compromises.
  4. They scared me that ladies had no place in business. Either I’m not a woman, or I’m taking someone else’s place. But in any case, I'm happy with the situation.
  5. Don't believe anyone who says women are too weak to succeed in business. Thousands of examples indicate the opposite. We are strength!
  6. I refuse to be weak and dependent. My place is not in the kitchen, but on the front page of Forbes magazine!
  7. I am a woman, and that means I am successful!
  8. Success comes to those who know how to work and are ready to spend all their energy on development. And it doesn't matter whether it's a man or a woman.
  9. I am proud of myself, because I was able to realize myself both in business and in the family. The impossible is possible!
  10. I am happy that I live in the 21st century. I can manage my money myself, run my own business and not depend on anyone. And for those who dream of feeling like a weak woman, I can only sympathize.

Being the owner of your own business is not easy. However, many people have already managed to achieve success and earn big money. Join the club of the rich and successful! Believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to move forward despite everything!

Pyotr Lidov about the consequences of the “Yarovaya package”

On June 29, the Federation Council adopted an “anti-terrorism” bill from deputy Irina Yarovaya and senator Viktor Ozerov, which provides for storing data from clients of providers and Internet services, as well as revealing traffic encryption.

The law caused extensive discussion among representatives of the IT industry. Thus, Director of Public Relations Pyotr Lidov on his Facebook page expressed the opinion that the adoption of such a document will lead to an increase in prices for the Internet and communications, and the Russian communications industry will begin to stagnate.

We Russians need to prepare for an increase in prices for the Internet and communications by approximately two to three times. Minimum. The Ministry of Finance - to exempt the industry from income tax for ten to twenty years.

American and Chinese companies will receive super profits from the sale of equipment for the implementation of the bold ideas of Russian deputies.
Two trillion is forty billion dollars. The Russian communications industry is facing stagnation, since all the money, instead of developing new technologies, will be spent on recording and storing telephone conversations, videos viewed on the Internet by every citizen and all other files, texts and documents sent by individuals and legal entities. — Peter Lidov

German Klimenko on the closure of Google and Facebook

At the beginning of February, Oleg Tinkov interviewed German Klimenko, presidential adviser on Internet issues. According to him, Google responds to 32 or 38 thousand requests from the American government per year: “And not a single one from ours. It is clear that sooner or later the question will be clearly posed to Google and Facebook: you either cooperate or you don’t.”

The answer to the question of whether Google and Facebook will be closed: sooner or later, I think yes.
— German Klimenko

In addition, Klimenko spoke about Pavel Durov’s cooperation with law enforcement agencies: “I will try to put forward a conspiracy theory related to the fact that Pavel is allowed to behave this way. From a law enforcement perspective, it's great to have that history. They say about the media - “built up and jerked off.” All normal large companies around the world cooperate with law enforcement agencies. The existence of Paul with such a populist position seems to me to be a PR story. I can suspect, and I think, that he is [actually] cooperating. It’s just that Paul’s fans believe that he cannot betray them.”

Medinsky on startups and Netflix

Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky in an interview with RNS said that the Netflix video service business is successful thanks to support from the US government, including financial support.

What did you think, all these giant startups arise on their own?
One student boy sat and came up with an idea - and billions of dollars fell from above? — Vladimir Medinsky

“It turns out that in our conditions, our ideological friends (the American government - editor's note) understand perfectly well that there is the most important art - how to enter every home with the help of Netflix, get into every TV, and through this TV - into everyone's head inhabitant of the Earth. But we don’t understand this,” Medinsky noted.

Alexey Ulyukaev about a salary of 100 thousand rubles

Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev, who at the end of the year was accused of accepting a bribe in the amount of $2 million with extortion, gave an interview to Gazeta.Ru in July. In particular, he advised Muscovites to forget about salaries of 100 thousand rubles a month, paid “just for coming to work.”

These are specialists within the Garden Ring who want 100 thousand a month just for coming to work. Yes, they need to forget about this. But it is a fact that nominal wages have resumed growth since March.

Now the gap between that growth and inflation is closing rapidly, which worries my colleagues at the Central Bank.
But I take it calmly. Next is the propensity to save. — Alexey Ulyukaev

In addition, Ulyukaev does not believe that the Russian economy has reached a “bottom” from which it is possible to push off. In his opinion, the situation will no longer be the same: “There is no bottom from which you can push off. We just find ourselves in a different situation, a different reality. This applies to both the global economy and the Russian one. One growth model has exhausted itself, the other has not yet started working.”

Igor Artemyev about fines for Google

In the fall of 2015, the FAS found Google guilty of violating antimonopoly laws based on a complaint from Yandex. The agency ordered the American company to remove restrictions on the pre-installation of applications from third-party developers, which applied to manufacturers of mobile devices running the Android OS.

For the very violation of antimonopoly norms, the FAS has already fined Google 438 million rubles. Google had to comply with the order by August 29, 2021, after which the FAS gave the company another ten days to submit a report on compliance with the requirements.

On September 2, Google asked for more time - from one to twelve months. On September 13, the FAS refused to extend the deadline for the company. On September 20, the FAS reported that they had not received notifications from Google to eliminate the violations. In response, the head of the FAS, Igor Artemyev, stated that he was ready to fine.

If we are talking about delaying the process, then we will meet every two weeks and impose a new fine on them for failure to comply with the order.
This will continue until the bitter end and until the final decision of the court. This is fine. — Igor Artemyev
