In the aftermath of SmallTown2012, Becky and Lanna hunker down to talk about small towns and why small towns have an advantage. They discuss getting lost in Boston. They discuss getting lost in Kansas! Becky gets on her soapbox to tell how technology has evened the playing field, allowing people to be successful wherever they live. And she answers 10 questions.
