I was scrolling down my newsfeed on Facebook today and I saw this...
This post gave me goosebumps. This is exactly why I do what I do! Let me explain...
Rebecca was a part of the very first cohort of the Mashup Lab Business Incubator, and just 6-months later she has turned an IDEA in to an ACTUAL BUSINESS! AMAZING! I'm SO proud of her and the Sober Island Brewing Company team! Seeing this comment from Rebecca validated everything I've been working hard on for the past two years...
Let's be clear here; sure, we provided the structure, process, tools, and connections... but Rebecca did all the really hard work to make this happen. We absolutely need more like people like Rebecca stepping up, taking action, and starting new businesses in our rural communities!
Working with over 1,000 Entrepreneurs starting and growing businesses from rural communities gives you perspective. Here is where I share the things I'm learning through my work with Mashup Lab. This is my Rural Perspective; I'd love to hear yours.
