    La neige rappelle l'éternité.

    Dans les
    souffles du
    nouveau matin,
    la neige rappelle
    l'éternité; les
    ruisseaux de l'amour
    décrivent le soleil
    qui paraît
    solitaire comme
    le chant de la
    vie dans les
    rêves perpétuels,
    et une voix

    After reading this I thought it was very informative. Thank you for taking the time and effort to put this article together. I find myself once again spending way to much time to both read and comment. But so what it was still worth it!

    Interesting. I would agree that focusing on growth vs cost control during the early stages of a business is ideal, however, there will be a point when that shifts.
