Portland, Oregon small-business owner Michael Hanna describes his personal and business transformation from out-of-work corporate executive to mattress delivery guy. Hanna lost his job at the height of the recession in 2009. A few months later Michael and his wife Mary Ruth took a gamble on a truckload of mattresses and an old u-haul truck. Two years later the Hannas run Mattress Lot, a community-based small business which challenges traditional big-box retail business models.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
