Why do you use WordPress?
The GPL and the community.

WordCamps are some of the best value web conferences you can attend. Where as many other conferences cost a few hundred dollar, a WordCamp costs under $100 and features speakers just as interesting and informational.

Do you have any advice for someone looking to start or grow a WordPress based business?
Align yourself with the WordPress Philosophies. Make decisions, not options. Embrace the GPL.
