Entrepreneurs on camera

One of the commenters on the Times series on immigrant entrepreneurs has a new blog called Self Made World, which aims to serve as a resource for immigrants seeking success in their own businesses. At the moment there are six 8- to 9-minute video interviews with business owners who came to the United States from Singapore, Belarus, Jamaica, England, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.

They speak of long hours and hard work, of course, but also about the opportunity this country affords. Especially at a gloomy time like this, their level of optimism is heartening—these are people who are achieving their dreams. Thank god someone is. Even if you have no entrepreneurial aims, these are immigrant stories worth hearing. Check it out!
