Each year in Michigan, political, business and philanthropic leaders gather on Mackinac Island for the Mackinac Policy Conference, an even that represents the largest collection of folks driving policy in the state.

Listen: Why so many new small businesses have cropped up in the state.
Brian Calley says his political career may be over, and that he really enjoys working with small businesses and helping to develop their work.
“We do see more start-up activity and more small businesses surviving into maturity than we have in the past,” says Calley.
