"Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, and these three winners exemplify the spirit of Main Street America," said Barbara Corcoran. "I'm thrilled to personally work with each of these entrepreneurs to not only help solve their business challenges, but to also create sustainable business strategies that will elevate their brands to the next level."
To enter the contest, business owners had to explain how they would use the $10,000 prize and guidance from Barbara Corcoran to grow their businesses.
