Mark Riffey looks at small town business the same way he looks at all small business: you’ve got to do things right to succeed, and you have a responsibility to others when you’re in business.
Mark has long impressed me with his smart writings about small business. While he’s not always saying “small town,” his small town background influences all his work. Now that we’re practically neighbors (neighboring states counts, right?), I thought it was high time we talked.
One of my few can’t-miss subscriptions is Mark’s Rescue Marketing blog. His Who I Work With page is fantastic marketing as well as a model for you to learn from.
Why this podcast exists
If you’re “just a business owner” or “just” someone in a small town, you often feel like you’re the only one. Either the only one with a positive outlook or the only one who is trying to create change. The whole point of this podcast is to bring all of us together. You are not alone.
