Our basic premise is that chefs make good entrepreneurs; bakers do not.
Only fools pour sweat, money, and dreams into the oven and hope for the best. A good chef tastes his creation and adds spice as needed; successful Internet entrepreneurs do the same by systematically measuring and adjusting their strategy along the way. They work out their recipes to succeed by always staying informed and innovative alike.
