Get listed, get linked, get defined within the NAICS.

North American Industry Classification System

also known as NAICS replaces the SIC system which

was the Standard Industrial Classification System.

The historic spirit of the the USA, the soul of capitalism, and the heart of democracy is embodied within small business. 

Television Shows about real people. No gurus, no journalists, no violence, no sex... just regular people telling their story about why they started a business and how it became successful. They share real insights, motivations and dreams. 

This weekly half-hour show began in September 1994,  airing on PBS-stations throughout the USA and on the Voice of America throughout the world.  Millions tune in each week and this community is growing around the information and inspiration small business owners gladly share to help one another.  These pages are for people who are loved within their community and are respected within their industry.   Let us learn and tell the stories of today's  pioneers & quiet heroes.

Background: The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)  was developed in cooperation with the US Economic Classification Policy Committee, Statistics Canada, and Mexico's Instituto Nacional de Estadistica, Geografia e Informatica.

Small Business School Listings.  A very small subset of NAICS is used to define the businesses listed within Small Business School.  However, if your business is not within any of the categories below, your category will be added just for you.  Generally, if the population of businesses exceeds 50 within a sub-category, that sub-category will be opened as a header.
