Great stories about people who were willing to risk it all for success
1 December 2010 | by (Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

Few social or religious leaders understand the value of entrepreneurs to our society. Too many see financial success as produced only by taking from others. Economic projections are built on looking back through history and projecting trends. But innovators never fit nicely into that mold. Innovators bring something new to the table.

Business builders are the wild card in the game of economic growth. People who are willing to risk all they have (and even their lives) to start something new or make something better.

This movie shares several stories of real-life business builders. I especially liked the story of the boy who made his way out of communist China in search of economic freedom. Wonderful!
