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!
