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.
Becky McCray says that small businesses and small towns matter. She is a small town business owner, she and her husband Joe co-own a retail liquor store and a cattle ranch. She writes and speaks about small town business, and she and Chicago entrepreneur Barry Moltz are the authors of the book Small Town Rules.
She has been featured in The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and Entrepreneur Magazine. Her blog, Small Biz Survival, ranks in the top 20 small business blogs worldwide. Along with Sheila Scarborough, she co-founded Tourism Currents to teach tourism professionals about social media marketing. All of this from her home base in Hopeton, Oklahoma, a community of 30 people.
