"10,000 Small Businesses made me very confident. You don’t ever want to have to deal with uncertainty or unexpected change—but I feel like I have the tools to handle it and to predict it too. Right now, small towns are encouraging kids to leave…if we can give one or two people that full-time job that keeps them in the community, that’s the secret to keeping this community alive and growing."
