One inspirational small business survival story

When big businesses get into a bind, the sheer size and calamities of any one of them is such a huge story that politicians feel they must get involved. But remember, there are only a few thousand of those companies.

For America’s small businesses, The Great Recession created a lot of financial pain, organizational damage and way too many failures. But when the recent economic conditions cause problems for any one of these 26 million heroes, the story likely won’t even make the local paper. And as we’ve seen, any help for small businesses from our so-called political “leaders” has been lip service at best and bad policy at worst.

Please allow me to report on one of America’s small business Great Recession stories. Think you’ve had it bad? Had to overcome a lot, did you? Got tough times? Listen to Gigi Stetler, as she talked with me recently on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, first about being a woman business owner in a male-dominated industry, and then she reveals the greatest challenge she had to deal with.

Gigi is the author of Unstoppable: Surviving Is Just the Beginning… and the only female owner of two RV dealerships in the U.S. Take a few minutes to listen to Gigi’s story and, as always, leave your thoughts and your story. Listen Live! Download, Too!
