San Diego: Visit with George Granoff, a corporate executive turned entrepreneur and small business owner. He bought and turned around a failing group of art supply stores. Now he is in the fast-lane for growth. Ever since graduating from college, he's worked in huge retail companies. He learned a lot. Then he took those years of experience to apply to a bankrupt chain of retail shops, The Art Store.

George's extraordinary business experience taught him much about scale, critical mass, and volume. Having run huge retail chains, George just couldn't imagine a business that is so small you can't enjoy the benefits of size.
