It’s a discussion that I’ve had on many occasions and one that popped up this past weekend as Jake from 10up offered some free commentary on the state of WordPress and business with these apparently rhetorical words:
I mean, 4 man agency owner giving "how to build a company"? Freelancer gives "winning big projects"? Makes WordPress look like amateur hour

What ensued was an epic thread of more than just a handful of people who added their proverbial 2 cents into the mix. The question and answer is up for grabs though: Can a 4-man agency command the respect of people (and possible attendees at an event)? How does one define success with WordPress business-making?
I walked through all the commentary this morning and found many valid points and many that I think could be best expanded and explained beyond 140 chars (so go for it in the comment section here!).
Regardless, business + WordPress is here to stay. I think we all have varying opinions on the matter, so as long as we can dialogue respectfully then we will all come out on top, right?
