An Enterprising Man is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on May 26, 1996.


Joe is a businessman without financial constraint, embarking upon one grandiose scheme after another without regard to its plausibility or consequences, amoral and indifferent. Each of them fails with disastrous effects, yet he "picks himself up, dust himself off, claps his hands together, rubs his palms, looks upward, and moves on" to the next scheme each time with reckless confidence reminiscent of a lunatic business self-help author.
