The accountant should know enough to help the business owner use the Internet in his or her business," Byer says. That understanding had a major effect on the growth of Jam Paper and Envelope, a specialty paper company based in Tenafly, N.J.

Today, it is a global company with a successful e-commerce operation (Jampaper.com) and such clients as MTV, Conde Nast, and CBS.
