Thank you to my coauthor, Becky McCray, who is not only the inspiration for this book, but a perfect example of using small town rules to be a successful business owner.
Sara, Ethan, and Daniel, who allow me to work “anywhere, anywhen.”
Jun Shihan Nancy Lanoue and Kyoshi Sarah Ludden, my Seido Karate teachers at Thousand Waves, who taught me what it really means to be part of a thriving community.
Tracy Thirion, the most creative person I know.
Mike Cooper, my father-in-law, may he rest in peace, who knew how to be successful while planning for zero.
Barry Moltz, thank you for knowing that small towns don’t mean small time and for asking all the right questions to make this a better book.
Glenna Mae Hendricks, ...
