After five years of running my own business, starting multiple websites, and engaging in a number of creative pursuits, I’ve come to realize that new business ideas are just a part of having an entrepreneurial spirit. What really matters is taking those ideas and actually doing something with them. I do believe there is a little bit of a formula when it comes to making a business work: a good idea, a lot of hard work, and a bit of luck all contribute to it.
For this comparison, I chose to use a phone that spans across almost all the national carriers, the LG Optimus One. This is a very nice mid-grade handset that we happen to be doing a in depth review on next week, specifically the Virgin Mobile Optimus V. I wont go into an overview of the handset right now, but will tell you that the Optimus V is a great phone, and that it is more than enough to be the only smart-phone in your pocket.
