Starting your own business is a noble -- not to mention exciting, rewarding and often crazy -- undertaking. The experience is an adventure, to say the least, and no two entrepreneurial paths are exactly the same, whether they result in fame and fortune or just a few hard knocks.

There are an estimated 27 million small businesses in the United States. And 27 Million and Counting is our attempt to capture as many of these unique, only-in-America success stories as we can. The premise is simple -- we give entrepreneurs 60 seconds to share their stories, in their own words. We hope they will inspire, inform and maybe make you laugh. This is Melisse and Alexia's story.

Name: Melisse Gelula and Alexia Brue
Company: Well + Good NYC
Location: New York
Website: www.wellandgoodnyc.com
Fun Fact: Although Well + Good NYC exists online, Melisse and Alexia host a monthly series called Workout With Us to bring their audience together in person to take yoga classes and meet with experts in the health and beauty world.
