They say small business is the heartbeat of the American economy, leading the way in job creation, innovation, and of course, economic development. But small business is about more than numbers, it’s about people.
That's why we asked 2 filmmakers to set out on an epic, social-media fueled road trip across the country to find out who these people are and what it’s really like to own a small business in America. Across 10,000 miles and 200 small businesses we found everyday people, with extraordinary stories—stories of inspiration, heartbreak, success and hard work in America.
