  • Where Opportunities Exist
    "Opportunities arise from a wide variety of circumstances: change, chaos, confusion, inconsistencies, ambiguity, uncertainty, etc. When looking for the next big thing, focus your search on these areas and you're more likely to find recently created opportunities that others haven't discovered yet."
