Faces of Main Street Mission


Our Mission


We are on a mission to tell the inspiring stories of the 28 million small businesses and entrepreneurs of America. We believe every story deserves to be told. These stories echo the American business dream of courage, determination, and hard work. The whole nation, everyone, can help us. 







Why Faces of Main Street



Support the Mission


Take a picture of your favorite small business owner and submit it to Faces of Main Street. It will make their day. You submit it, we tell it. You can also spread the world by sharing Faces of Main Street photos and stories on social media. In a world that many times focuses on the negative, we focus on the positive, and highlight hard working entrepreneurs.



We Believe in Small Business


We believe in small business. Small business isn’t small, it’s powerful and inspiring. Small business is 28 million strong. Each day small business owners and entrepreneurs roll up their sleeves, create value, and breath life into their communities. We thank them for their positive contribution to our nation.



Every Story Told

While you can inspire a nation with one story. We are on a mission to inspire the nation with millions of them showcased on Faces of Main Street. Every story needs to be told. 



The National Athletic Institute helps Olympic athletes achieve their dreams. David, an NAI athlete, is blind and is the fastest T11 Paralympic sprinter in the world. His story inspires us.

What Does it Cost?


It doesn’t cost a thing.  It’s our passion to tell inspiring business stories. It’s our way to give back and help inspire the nation. We thank small business for making our Nation great.
