Presidential Pep Talk
And in case Madison Avenue hasn't convinced you that entrepreneurs are the height of cool, take note of President Bill Clinton's remarks at a recent press briefing as he talked about the country's open economy. The President suggested that anyone, even the ink-stained wretches in attendance, could prosper as entrepreneurs if they really wanted to. "You could get venture capital, you could come up with some idea," Clinton told his sometimes-adversaries. "You've fooled around with your computer so much you could probably start some new Internet company and be worth a couple hundred million dollars in no time." They should both be so lucky.
