|Talking events and festivals
at Red Carpet Country meeting.
At the Red Carpet Country annual meeting, one of the big hits was the panel on events and festivals. They shared stories of local events that started with a few dozen or a few hundred attendees, and have grown to thousands. The total economic impact of those events would be hard to calculate, but it would be enormous. The panel was made up of volunteers who work on these events in their communities. Who were those volunteers? Local business owners, and successful local entrepreneurs.
It was a good reminder of one of my key beliefs:
Prosperous entrepreneurs build prosperous communities.
That is why Small Biz Survival exists. It’s my way of creating more prosperous local entrepreneurs. I can’t solve all the problems small towns face. The people best equipped to help any small town are the entrepreneurs who live and work there.
It goes back to a familiar theme that I noticed at the Midwest Rural Assembly: The best solutions come from within.
And that means the best solutions come from local people, local business owners. The more I can do to make them prosper, the more they make their communities prosper. That’s why I’m here.
