A Piece Of The Pie by Shelton P. Rhodes Phd., Peter Fretty

In the early 1970s a special government program was created to help disadvantaged individuals succeed with their small businesses. Today the Small Business Administration's 8(a) business development program has helped many prosper in the world of small business. A Piece of the Pie profiles four success stories in the Washington, DC area and outlines the program's growing business opportunities and resources made available for the economically disadvantaged. Authors Peter Fretty and Shelton Rhodes bring an inspiring story of how dedicated entrepreneurs, through determination and perseverance, were able to successfully achieve their goal of running a business. The book also examines how the 8(a) program, and others like it, can give an economic boost to neighborhoods and communities by creating jobs that employ highly skilled individuals.
