Creating Value & Expressing It

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2007 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

In reference to business models and the ability to respond appropriately to different stimuli, as well as Built to Last (current Fog Creek reading):

The communications you make with your vendors, your business partners, your customers, your investors, your employees will stress different bits of your business model, because people will ask "what's your business model?" and mean different things.

Everyone's an entrepreneur, investing the capital of their own lives - you, yourself, might want to consider your "business model."
