The business world is looking more like a small town. Strong downward economic pressures combined with advances in technology have forced rewriting the rules of business. Advances in technology have allowed all of us to collaborate instantaneously over great distances and not be tied to a single geographic area. Suddenly, the business advantage has shifted from multinational corporations towards small and local companies. When every one of your customers can talk to everyone else, it's like a small town. When the human voice is valued over corporate mission statements, it's like a small town. Now is the right time to look at the small businesses that have best succeeded in small towns, and find the lessons that everyone in the business world can use today.
