Bringing clarity to the successful approach for MSMEs in the technology age, Day says: “If you think that investing more heavily in technology gives you added nable competitive advantage. In the Industrial Age, the tools were important. In the Information Age, the important things include value-added information, decision-support systems, speed and responsiveness to the marketplace, and the unique selling proposition that distinguishes you from the crowded competitive field.”

Day was born in Kingston, but grew up in Frankfield, Clarendon. He attended Edwin Allen High School and the University of Wisconsin.
His message for youth and women entrepreneurs is simple. “What it takes for small operators in the business world is not anything different for large operators. Not any different for women or men, young or old.
“Success in the marketplace is not driven by catering to who you are as a provider. Rather, it is catering to the customer who desires a service from a provider. Focus should be on targeting customers and what they want. If we can provide what the customers want, they will keep coming back.”
