The Entrepreneur

Exploring the world of entrepreneurs

and what it takes to succeed


Entrepreneurs and business owners are people I’ve admired all my life. As a kid, I’d see people who did everything from sell hotdogs from a push cart on the street to those who owned manufacturing plants and lived in big houses.

I heard of people named Henry Ford and Conrad Hilton in those days. Now there’s Mark Cuban, Oprah Winfrey and Jeff Bezos. I read about how they all built their businesses and learned that there are hundreds more who don’t make the headlines.

Along the way I built a few businesses of my own. That gave me a greater-than-ever appreciation for what it takes, how tough it can be, and how rewarding it can be.

What makes an entrepreneur tick? If you care even a little bit about hearing them tell you their personal stories then join me in my adventures. After producing over 500 episodes of “Making It!” America’s premier small business TV series, I’m now the Entrepreneur Explorer.  And there’s a pretty remarkable world of entrepreneurs I think you’ll like exploring with me.
