Best-Ever Entrepreneurship Quotes: Week 19

Continuing our series of powerful motivational quotes personally selected to get your week off to a flying start.

This week, the secret advantage of small business:

"One of the unique things we small companies have over the big guys is the ability to establish personal relationships. Big companies really can't do that. You read about effective organizations, learning organizations, lean and mean organizations, but small companies can be virtuous. We as small companies can have virtue because we as small companies are basically the embodiment of one or two people, and people can have virtue, while organizations really can't."

-- Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company, maker of Sam Adams beer.
