It's A Good Thing

When Burt started traveling around the world, the hotels, restaurants, airlines, and just about every other business he encountered had been started by a man, today, half the businesses he deals with were put together by entrepreneurial women and as Martha Stewart would say, "That's a good thing". In this program Burt travels around looking at the tradition of women entrepreneurs.
