Meet small-business owner and entrepreneur Jim Garland. In the early 1990s, Jim started a one-man boat cleaning service out of the trunk of his car. Today, Jim's company, "Sharp Details", employs over 70 people cleaning corporate and private aircraft in 5 locations on the East Coast.

Entrepreneurs like Jim are the backbone of a healthy and vibrant economy. But with thousands of costly regulations to comply with, entrepreneurs are finding it harder to plan and invest for the future. If we want people like Jim to be able to pursue their dreams and succeed, we need greater amounts of economic freedom.
