Free Enterprise is a live action, half-hour television program designed to meet the educational and informational needs of children aged 13-16. Free Enterprise tells the story of formerly incarcerated individuals who dream of starting their own businesses, a path they've decided to take after struggling to find consistent employment because of their criminal backgrounds. With the help of business experts and mentors, we'll follow these budding entrepreneurs as they turn a low-capital investment into an on- going business – one that provides a steady income, and, more importantly, self-reliance and self- respect. Hosted by Ryan Smith, and featuring entrepreneur Brian Hamilton as our resident business expert, Free Enterprise will demonstrate what it takes to build an action plan for business success. Viewers will learn more about the building blocks of creating a business - from inspiration to execution, basic budgeting, banking, marketing, hiring, and more. Through it all, Free Enterprise will demonstrate the importance of second chances while making entrepreneurship accessible to everyone.
