"Never in the history of the world has the entrepreneurial and small business spirit — the spirit of adventure — been more alive or in a more favorable position to reach out to the world for business. The fight-for-your-life attitude caused by extremely uncertain times, along with the explosive growth of the Internet, has leveled the playing field and emancipated the entrepreneurial and small business process. There is no end in sight, but instead, a beginning to realizing the world is your market."
