In the world of entrepreneurship and business, it's important to find people whose practices we wish to emulate, and who inspire us to succeed. With Twitter, by choosing who to follow, you can curate a custom list of people who do just that.

The right entrepreneurs and business people won't only shell out great advice themselves, but they'll retweet and link out to other informative and uplifting information and accounts.

In honor of Twitter's 10th birthday, we chose our top 10 men and women in business that are worth a follow on Twitter. We didn't choose 10 people solely based on how successful they are -- we took into account the content they produce and repost on their feeds, as well as how well they've worked themselves up in the business world.

These 10 entrepreneurs post the perfect balance of their own content and advice, as well as links to articles and tweets of others that they find inspiring. Prepare for your brain and career motivation to grow even larger.
