    Excerpt from WDET -- "When our lives are made very slightly easier or better in some way, we will use whatever that technology is, even if ultimately it does us some kind of harm.

There’s this national movement #DeleteFacebook and there’s all these celebrities, tweeting of course, pictures of themselves."

The authors’ conclusion -- Entrepreneurs think they are better than their resumes show and realize they can make more money by going it alone. And in most cases, they are right."
