New York Originals
The award-winning PBS series profiles mom and pop retailers that point out a number of takeaway lessons:

  • All skills cannot be outsourced overseas
  • You can compete successfully against cheaply made imported products if you counter with quality and skill and if there are enough people willing to pay for a quality product. See Embee Sunshade. They made a custom product for Oprah.
  • Long established businesses provide an overview of how changes in the economy affect choices and decisions of the self-employed. For example: Bellitte Bikes
  • And what are the unique, small businesses in your area?
