I'm sorry, that you had to start your business from fear-based perspective ...
Am I wrong about this?
For internet-business guy - start from fear too - 'fear in' your potential buyers that your computer may be at risk ... oops ...wait.... someone already did it ... competitors .. damn it
So my thesis - you can't start a new successful business without some misinformation/lying - which is not a way for self-development.
I wonder, Steve, where did you tell not the whole truth in the process of setting up business?

A bold first post.
I am highly suspicious of those who keep repeating the line about "providing value"- mainly because it seems so hard to define...
If you convince enough people there is a problem (real or imaginary) and then offer a solution- is that providing value?
The reality of being in business is that you have to cut costs while "appearing" to offer more value- hence words like streamlining, self- service checkouts. Offer less, make it appear to be more- value at it's finest!
