America was built on the the idea of “rugged individualism”. Entrepreneurship, or the act of starting one’s own business, is truly an American symbol. Your idea, Inc.! It’s the promise of America – that with hard work and determination, each of of us can make it on our own. Whatever we put our mind to, we can accomplish. We have a dream, and follow it. We create ourselves… so the story goes. But how? How do we get there? Do we work for “the man” (the big corporation), or do we summon the confidence and courage to go it on own own? Do we take the security of a big paycheck, or exchange it for the insecurity of being our own boss and potentially hitting it big?
Join us as we talk with successful business leaders who have succeeded both working for “the man” and working for themselves. We’ll compare “going it alone” to Corporate America.
