“In a connected world, people need to be very conscious of where the flow of information is and if you're a businessperson or an entrepreneur, you need to be standing at the confluence where that information flows for your particular market or industry.  You know you can have flaws in every single thing you're doing. But if you stand in the right place, you're going to be alright.” ~ Hung Lee
