LinkedIn – I grew up in a small business family. My father ran a shop printing fabric for draperies, and my brothers and I would pitch in and help when things got busy. I remember him standing hour after hour over the silkscreens, determined to provide a middle-class life for our family.
It’s because of the lessons I learned from my father that helping small businesses succeed across America is about more than policy for me – it’s personal. So when I launched my campaign for President, I made it a priority to hear directly from the men and women who run small businesses about the challenges they face, and their ideas for making it easier to do what they do best: innovate, grow, and create jobs.
