    I have an assignment for my one of my college courses. BUS1210 Starting and Operating a Small Business. The assignment is to interview and record a business owner who has been operating a business successfully for the past five consecutive years. This is to show the business has managed to survive the first five critical years. (2)The business owner must work in the business full time(no exceptions). (3)The business must employ at least two other people on a full time basis. (4) If the instructor googled the business it should show up on the web with the address and phone number. (5) A business card from the business has to be submitted with the project.

    I interviewed one business over the phone. I put them on speaker and recorded the interview with a tape recorder. The problem is that they don't meet the the (3) requirement so I won't get credit for this project. So I am trying to see if anyone can help.

    The information used would not in any way be used for competition reasons or to reveal any methods or trade secrets used by a particular business. This information is SOLELY FOR THE ASSIGNMENT AND ASSIGNMENT ONLY. I could provide the number of the instructor to prove the legitimacy of the project if neccessary. If anyone could help please let me know.
