Do you live in a rural community? Are you thinking about moving to a rural community or starting a business in a small town? This week’s podcast with realtor Amy Lucht is a conversation you won’t want to miss! Amy is a farm-turned-city-turned-small-town girl who, yes, still makes time for the annual tractor ride with her dad (which explains the driver’s view on the International).
As the go-to realtor in central Iowa, Amy has a unique perspective on both the rural and urban markets in her area. In this conversation we talk about:
- How this digital age we live in is giving people the ability to work and thrive in rural communities
- What small communities are doing to attract people
- How we can study what cities are doing and apply that to our small towns
And here’s a little tip for those of you who don’t live in Iowa but want to learn from what Amy’s talking about: you might want to pull up Iowa on your Maps app so you can get a better visual. (We’re not kidding, that’s how much you can learn from this podcast.) We promise you’ll walk away with a head full of ideas and a fire in your heart to really go after your small-town dreams!
