While being grilled on the stand, Ford did prove his ignorance of history.
Did that bother Henry? NO! He admitted to not having the greatest grasp of all subjects. After all, by academic standards, Henry Ford was not considered a well educated man. But he knew, and also told that to the jury, that with the push of a button on his desk, he could get whatever information he needed from expert sources.
And with only that much knowledge, he had a major hand in revolutionizing the industrial world.

LinkedIn has one of the highest average household incomes of any websites, $109,000/year. Twitter gives you an instant access and contact with potential customers 24/7, each and every day of the year.
Third, new way of professional networking is one that combines the power of in-person relationship development with the power of on-line networking.
