Joel Spolsky recently wrote an article for Inc. magazine about what differentiates prospering and failing companies today, and his title on the print version of the piece pretty much says it all: "It Isn't the Economy, Stupid." Joel outlines differentiators that some might consider common sense, "sweating the little things," or any number of other clichéd business terms, but I think he’s dead-on. 

It all comes down to character and fundamental corporate culture. Running a successful services company begins with looking out for your client’s best interest before your own, being very knowledgeable about what you offer, always being willing to help, and delivering quality each and every time. Great article, Joel!
