GRAND JUNCTION Some say small businesses are the heart and soul of our country's economy and each entrepreneur has a story behind their innovation.
Two New York filmmakers, who are small business owners themselves, set out to tell the stories of individuals who built their livelihood from the ground up. For the next couple of days they are in Grand Junction.
John Sears and Trish Dalton have been on the road for eight weeks, interviewing a wide variety of small business owners.
"The whole mission of this project is just to hold a megaphone up to small business owners across America and share their stories," Sears said. "That's why we started this project, that's why we chose this place and it's just been really inspiring."
Today they went to The Horse In Sport to talk to Tiger, the Western Slope's only certified saddle fitter.
Tiger and her husband opened up their saddle shop in downtown Grand Junction and offer the community everything they need from rodeo to english riding.
The filmmaking duo will visit as many small businesses in town as they can over the next couple of days.
