Fueled by hard work, integrity, and ingenuity, small businesses employ about 50% of all Americans. The Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream's inaugural podcast series, hosted by the Center's President, Dr. Kerry Murphy Healey, explores the importance and role of small businesses as a vital engine of the American economy, and for many, an essential element of the American Dream. Through personal stories, small business owners share their unique experiences and how the support of families and communities transformed great ideas into successful business endeavors - often in the process knitting neighborhoods together and providing essential goods and services. Listen to our series to learn from small business owners about resiliency, overcoming obstacles in pursuit of the American Dream, and how to open the door for others to do the same.
