The truth about the home town

Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on June 12, 2014

There is a phrase which comes from a best selling book*

I tell all of you with certainty, a prophet is not accepted in his hometown. 

The economics of this statement are simple. If we want to get paid for you knowledge & skill, then we ought travel to a location where we are the unknown quantity.

*No, I haven’t read the book in question.

      That your wisdom and ability is rarely appreciated or valued by those who know you personally (Friends, employers, community, even family) – So it’s worth travelling to find those who might.
