About This Show
Working Sunday is a radio show from Oakland CA about small businesses and the people who run them.
We feature the stories of the owners of small businesses - from a 30 year generational Italian restaurant awarded Top 100 Italian Restaurant in the world – to a top-producing new State Farm agent who has been open for 2 years.
We learn about their lives, their struggles, and their road to profit.
The stories are inspiring, educational, passionate and moving.
Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in entrepreneurship.
