"There's something really incredible happening in both large cities and small towns. People are fed up with constraints of traditional employment, and they're taking back control of their lives.  There's a wave of confidence sweeping across America, giving people the courage to get up and chase their dreams. It's truly inspiring, and I feel incredibly privileged to be part of the entrepreneur movement in America." -Gary Bredow
