I’ve spent some time this week checking out elance.com. I am reminded of a book I read listened to a couple years ago.  In many ways the world truly is flat…or at least flattening. Opportunities abound for knowledge workers to find work anywhere in the world.  The cool thing for a small business person is that he/she is not limited to the skills that are in his area(I’m thinking of my stomping grounds…rural Pennsylvania).  A bookkeeper in India can keep up with the accounting, someone in Kenya does market research, then marketing and SEO can be maximized from Illinois.  Another advantage for the small business person is that the web not only makes these services widely available, the many choices inevitably contain an agreeable price for both parties.
