The “Do MBAs help an entrepreneur?” question is an old chestnut that never seems to be resolved.

So where are the businesses run by people with disabilities?
I am a great fan of social media. Honest. People have always talked and now those self-same conversations can go so much further and so much quicker. But I hate how most people use it.
