Jill Fink and Peter Gonzalez present why small, independent businesses are so vital to our communities, what’s at stake -- both economically and socially -- when nearly 25% of them are at risk of closing their doors forever, and offer a proven model that relies on collaboration and establishes an approach to economic development that builds on the assets and determination of residents to increase their own wealth and rebuild their neighborhoods from within. They remind us that we all have the ability to effect change - whether as consumers or through our professional work -- and that now is the time to act.
