The Indie Business Revolution

The Indie Business Movie shares the compelling stories of four dynamic, independent woman business owners.

While most media outlets feature business owners after they achieve certain milestones, especially financial ones, there is a “reality” gap for many entrepreneurs, especially women. Women typically do not have access to as much capital as men, and this movie shows that you don’t need an investor or a business loan to start a business of your own.

We tell the stories of people who are where most people are today. What inspires them? How do they keep going in this economy? What makes them tick? Why are they in business instead of a job? What drives them when conventional wisdom says that most of their businesses will fold after a year or two?

These and other questions are answered from the diverse perspectives of 4 inspirational women.
