    What Small Business School is about
    Key Idea: Small business is about courage, risk-taking... These are opening words of every episode of the show; Hattie continues, "...and we small business owners are survivors. Everybody has an idea for a business, but how do you take that idea from mind to market? This is the place to learn."   Hattie live... Go to the closing of every episode of the show where these first principles, the very foundations of every episode, continue to unfold.

    If I dont do this, my life will be incomplete
    Key Idea: If I don't do this, my life will be incomplete. We all have had to take that Flying Leap.  For most of us, it is not easy.  If you have worked for long within the security of a job, it is gut wrenching.   Watch this video.  In the first 12-seconds when you only hear the music, answer the question, "Why do I want to do this?" If it is just to make a lot of money, you have a lot of work to do. Money's motivation can not sustain a business in its infancy.  There's got to be more. PS.  The people who left those shoes behind are not falling, they are flying... they are taking the flying leap of faith that they can do it, they can start-run-and-grow a good business, and that they can be a force for good in this world.  By the way, if your roots are in the USA, there is a deep entrepreneurial spirit in your blood.  More...  Go to the opening words of every episode.

Food itself has a similar issue to medications, as the product can be compromised, as can the individual ingredients. However, we generally purchase prepared foods, as well as ingredients and foodstuffs. All of these have their own supply chains and their own issues, and their own histories with being counterfeited.
