GROWTH OPPORTUNITY: CAN SMALL TOWN AMERICA BOUNCE BACK TO GLORY

“From hustle and bustle to bust.”


all american 

America has about 19,350 cities and towns, with the majority being small cities and towns. Small places that were once a hustling and bustling town are now desolate. And the reason being is that when companies realized going overseas could mean cheaper labor for higher profit margin, that was it. Small towns and cities that were industrialized started to wither away. Younger generations left and now you have an aging generation left behind.

I wonder, just wonder, is it at all possible to rebuild some of these small towns. Maybe the emerging tech industry will open up new opportunities for these places. Could something possibly be built on the web, or of enough strength that could bring these places around? Because what was once environments for coal mining and steel workers is no more. And with everyone running out to Silicon Valley, is there a chance some of those people can rebuild these broken towns.

they’ll see it, not I

We all would like to build something and reap the benefits of what we built. But what happens when your vision becomes bigger than you? What are you to do when what you want to build you just won’t be around to see. And that is yet another reason why it’s so hard to rebuild these small places. Someone or many people are needed to build for the next generation. Yet who will be the sacrificial lambs to do so. And that’s the big dilemma; who will take one for the team. Because in order to rebuild, someone has to step. Who will it be?
