What is People Behind The Business?
People Behind the Business is a "show for small businesses with small teams and huge ambitions". The point is to bring together small business owners worldwide to tell their stories about how/why they started their business, along with personal issues that impact how they do business. E.G: living with a mental or physical illness, hearing the word "no" a lot, and finding practical solutions to the challenges of establishing a loyal community of colleagues, customers + friends. My goal is to provide a forum where small business owners can learn from each other's mistakes & accomplishments.
