Partners, Be Bold!

By
''Fortune Favors the Bold!''

Quoted more often than followed, Virgil's immortal phrase rings truer now than ever as a source of inspiration — and as a challenge. In Virgil's day, fortune — or ''Fortuna,'' the goddess of luck — was believed to bestow her largesse on risk-takers and adventurers. Those who boldly sacrificed comfort in pursuit of greater goals were rewarded by Fortuna for their efforts. These unpredictable financial times provide a great opportunity for many to catch Fortuna's eye and generous attention. So all you partners with a book, great or small, dust off your shield and saber, or business plan and contacts, and be bold.
