Because of my unusual focus on rural business, you’ll find my contributions and mentions of me in more than a dozen books, as well as countless blogs, magazines, podcasts and university publications.

It’s not just the US; mentions come from Romania, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Spain, the Dominican Republic, the UK, Canada and Australia.
