  • How many entrepreneurs do we have here?How many know what it is?I couldn’t even spell it two years ago! Im an engineer (so are lots of you?), we arent supposed to be able to spell.
  • Is everyone ready for another boring powerpoint?As a full-time college student I fall asleep at the sound of PPT. So I will do my best to keep you all entertained for 5 minutes.
  • It is time to quit waiting for the government to pull us out and make it happen ourselves! It is time to change, and it is time to make a difference using what we have. IT will be a driving factor. So will education, a new breed of education. How many web developers and/or programmers do we have in here? How many GM employees ? How many outsource? Take advantage of globalization. Compete with walmart by using small biz IT service providers that are in this room, and provide superior value-added services to your clients. Let’s rebuild main street together!
