      Stupid is the brand killer

      When you make your customer feel stupid, you've given him no choice. He needs to blame you.

      Retirement: Why small-business owners don't save

      Baby Boomers are becoming entrepreneurs at an amazing pace. By some accounts they are starting 50% of new businesses. The U.S. Small Business Administration says more than 5 million Boomers 55 and older either own businesses or are self-employed.
