MiniTrends are emerging trends that promise to become significantly important in the next two to five years, but which are not recognized or appreciated by the general public or most businesses. These emerging trends can be extremely valuable to those alert enough to recognize them, perceptive enough to appreciate their potential worth, and clever enough to reap their full potential.
