2013 Small Business Success Stories Award Winners
The business leaders you’ll read about below could have gotten high-paying jobs with big companies. There’s nothing wrong with a high-paying job with a big company, of course. But each of the protagonists in these tales of commercial adventure desired to follow a different career storyline. They saw opportunities; they dreamt dreams; they were willing to take risks—and they possessed the endurance to overcome the hurdles and challenges that come with risk. They took roads not everyone would (or should) wish to take. But all of us should be grateful that they followed those trails—and we can all draw inspiration from what they’ve achieved.
