When three-time author Phil Simon started his latest book, he didn’t even consider mainstream publishers, whose production cycles stretch to a year or more. Instead, he turned to an online community for funding, and the money rolled in so fast he exceeded his $4000 goal in weeks. Next month 'The New Small' rolls off the press, with acknowledgements to 106 individual backers. This week on Collaboration Pizza, Phil talks about how other entrepreneurs—dentists, lawyers, restaurant owners—harness E2.0 tools with equally impressive results. “It’s no longer a liability to be the little guy,” says Phil. Research for 'The New Small' has convinced Phil that new technologies are the golden door for small organizations determined to not only level the field, but leapfrog beyond bigger competitors. What can a Fortune 50 company learn from a computer repair company? How can a four-person manufacturing firm hold its own in the consumer products market? Find out first-hand from Phil Simon, who claims, “All else equal, it’s better to be small”. Collaboration Pizza is brought to you by Yakabod Secure Knowledge Sharing Systems: http://www.yakabod.com.
