Area of Expertise: Entrepreneur/Business Leader

Topic: Economic structures

Headline: The Internet is no longer an option

Nutshell: In 3-5 years the Internet will no longer be an option for existing or prospective business owners; it will be a requirement.

Vision: In an effort to reduce costs, increase productivity and maximize profits, existing and prospective businesses will be required by local, county, state and-or federal government agencies to have a website. This breakthrough will be required as budget, time, functional constraints will dictate that all businesses have to have websites.
