What you will learn from Small Town Business Owners:
Rule 1. Plan for zero. There will be tough years ahead. Guaranteed!
Rule 2. Spend creative brainpower before spending dollars. Too much money makes you stupid.
Rule 3. Multiply lines of income to diversify your risk. Don’t have all your eggs in a single basket.
Rule 4. Work anywhere, anywhen through technology. Geographic location is a thing of the past.
Rule 5. Treat customers like community. Get off the balcony and have real conversations.
Rule 6. Be proud of being small. Every large corporation finally wants to be you!
Rule 7. Build your local connections. Your customers now want to buy local!
