This week on the podcast we’re in Versailles, Kentucky (pop. 9,292) with entrepreneur Emily Riddle. Emily and her husband have invested into their small town square by bringing in several new businesses, and in just a year and a half it has evolved into a vibrant, thriving destination that’s attracting young people — and most recently Hollywood — as the site for a Drew Barrymore movie set.

Emily is an entrepreneur at heart and you’ll love her creativity and all the ideas she’s been able to bring to life in Versailles in just a short amount of time!

We asked ourselves, what do we want in downtown Versailles that we don’t have? And what would be fun to have that would bring young people here and give them something to do? We wanted to make Versailles a destination for people all around Kentucky to come to.

Just go for it and figure out a way to make it happen. My husband and I do not have a lot of money, but we had partners in all of our real estate that helped us because we could not do it on our own. Don’t let the monetary aspect hold you back.
