Next week, I’m going to start sharing your answers to “how do we get more volunteers?” So there is still time to send me your thoughts on that. Just hit reply and tell me about volunteering in your town and what you do different than “the way it’s always been.”
This week, I want to share a video with you. After I gave this talk, I had more people come up to me and beg for a copy of the video to share in their town. I took that as a hint that I really ought to share it, even though the brightness on my camera was acting up.
You might be wondering what the heck I said that was worth sharing. I’m thinking it’s because I had a positive message. We’re hit too often with the bad news. My topic was “Small Towns Have a Future.” I focused on the 10 trends most in our favor right now. There really has never been a better time for small and rural towns. We have the end of geographic limits, the way consumers are changing retail, the local movement and the shift of people moving into rural places.
If you’d like to have me come to your town and talk about this with your people personally, just hit reply. We can talk about what else I can do with you while I’m there to make the expense more than worth it for you. Just hit reply and tell me you’re interested. Even international, we can find a way to put together more than one appearance and make it work. You know I’m incredibly passionate about our positive future, and I’d be thrilled to bring that to your people.
Keep making your small town better,
