This series offers viewers an up-close and personal look into the world of the modern American entrepreneur. Host and show creator Gary Bredow came up with the concept from a deep interest in the American entrepreneur spirit. "In this economy, people need to create their own means of security. The days of getting a great paying job right out of high school or college are all but gone.
