You, for instance, are the little guy.
- You own a catalog business.
- You are a web analyst.
- You are a marketing executive.
The little guy, in aggregate, has a lot of power, especially when you spend your money with trusted partners that have your best interests at heart.
It might be time to stand up to forces that are trying to align your money with their interests/survival. Without your money, they have nothing, and are ultimately silenced.
