For one reason or another, we’re pre-programmed to fear big businesses. As a result, we don’t try, we don’t compete, and we simply just give up. Why is that?
Years ago, being a big business was absolutely required if you wanted to be successful. That’s not the case though anymore. In fact, you don’t need to be Walmart, Google or even Amazon.com to be successful. Instead, you can be (more) successful as a small business – just look at Instagram.

While I love the stock apps that come on most smartphones and tablets; often times, they don’t unlock the full potential of the device. For example, they give the user minimal control to color correct a photo or to crop out unwanted portions of a photo.
