Nominate any business that you believe should be profiled on an upcoming episode of Small Business School. We’re looking for businesses who:
- Are leaders in their niche
- Have high ethical standards
- Serve their local communities
Your nominated businesses will be on the list for consideration as the new production cycles begin in each local area.
We can all be advocates for a good business. Each business on this show has had many advocates including governors of state, mayors of their community, their economic development folks, Chambers of Commerce, and business editors. We can all be advocates for the businesses that shape our community. We thank you for being involved in this initial nomination process.
Why TV? Why Small Business School?
Most of the media and most of politics are driven by the negative, especially when it comes to business news.
Small Business School is committed to showing the other side of the story — the basic values that are the very heart of free enterprise.
The people who exemplify those values, the vision and competency, better than any other group are the quiet majority of small business owners on the Main Streets of villages, towns and cities throughout the world.
The Foundations of Free Enterprise
The core of the private enterprise system is respectful competition. Competition keeps capitalism efficient and innovative. Small business is a key source of competition:
- Small business leads the way for technological change and productivity growth as the economy’s greatest source of experimentation and innovation.
- Small business is changing the face of business. It creates opportunities for women, minorities and immigrants. Small business is how millions of people enter the economic and social mainstream.
- Small business invests in its communities. There’s a growing and powerful interplay between a community’s social dynamics and economic performance.
The facts speak for themselves. The real story is found within the real-life stories of the successful small business people who fuel the economy. They are quietly, powerfully creating an entrepreneurial legacy to be nurtured, appreciated and emulated.
This is the quiet mission of Small Business School. Now part of this mission is to change television so it becomes part of the revolution that is increasingly unleashing personal creativity and innovation.
