Everybody loves to hear about the underdog beating the odds to fuel our own dreams and provide hope that we too may succeed the same. In recent years there have been countless examples in business of David versus Goliath victories. However, the battlegrounds for many of these corporate exploits haven't been in city skyscraper board rooms but have started out in the comfort of our own bedrooms. The Internet has removed the barriers to the average person achieving great things in business and the bedroom startup volumes continue to flourish. Of course prior to the Internet there was still the chance for the small man to make it big such as Lord Alan Sugar However, such success was much harder to achieve and is testament to Lord Sugar to achieve so much in the face of adversity. Business is by no means easy today however for those with an idea, a vision to implement the idea and a relentless work ethic the odds to succeed and the risks of failure have never been more favourable.
