Small Business Big Results | Grant Sobczak | TEDxLivoniaCCLibrary

Despite being responsible for nearly half of domestic goods and services and accounting for two out of three net jobs, the impact of “Main Street” American small business is often overlooked. Many local businesses are discounted because of deceptive financial metrics that carelessly understate the value that these organizations create on a daily basis. Let’s take a fresh look at American small business by stepping away from the balance sheets and cash flow statements and instead focus on the raw contributions these businesses make in the cities and towns across America. Grant Sobczak is an enterprising entrepreneur and small business advocate who has owned and operated a business since the young age of fourteen. He is CEO of Modern Mind Technology, a technology conglomerate that provides digital marketing and consulting services to small and midsized businesses and operates eCommerce stores. Grant is a senior at Churchill High School and is a member of the Livonia AM Rotary club and the Livonia Chamber of Commerce. He enjoys studying finance and investing, traveling with family, and flying airplanes.
