An interesting excerpt from a GREAT Mind!

(Taken from an email written from one friend to another)

"There is absolutely nothing new about entrepreneurship. It's been around for thousands of years. The problem is our entire society has been educated into thinking that bigger is better - so we sit back and wait to be waited on, plus, when we were in school, the emphasis was always "When you go to work for someone else...", NEVER was it "When you start your own business..." nor "When you encounter opportunities...".

Well said!

Here's to your success!
