A reporter asked me about towns where business people have pulled together to turn the town around. I wanted to tell him about you, but something held me back.
See, I know a lot about Webster City, Iowa, because my friend Deb Brown tells me all about it. I know about Lincoln, Illinois, because their mayor Keith Snyder told me. I know about popular examples like Ord, Nebraska, because everyone talks about them.
But I don’t know about your town. I need you to tell me.
Tell me about how people have made the difference, how people have turned around a bad situation, how people have pulled together to make something good happen.
Tell me about the little victories and the small steps forward. Tell me about how it all added up over time.
Don’t assume I already know, because I probably forgot, or misplaced your email, or lost track. Maybe I just need a reminder. But I do want to know.
Just hit reply and tell me your story. I’ll share it back here with your friends and fellow readers, and in my Brag Basket at SmallBizSurvival.com. And I’ll tell anyone who asks.
Keep making your small town better,
PS – If you are wanting to get your act together with social media, you might like to connect with my friend Des Walsh. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of all the social media advice that assumes you work for a big company on the east coast of the US. That’s one reason why I like Des. He’s based in Tweed Heads, New South Wales, Australia. He is offering full day sessions with him to help you get down to business with social media. He does these online, so no need to run to the beach at Tweed Heads (unless you want to). I think it’s especially good for rural and remote small business people in Australia to talk to someone who gets their needs and understands social media.
