I feel privileged to get to know you a bit, learn what you’re doing that works in your Oklahoma small town, and share what I learn from you with other rural people.

Retail Tips for Small Town Businesses
To help your Main Street businesses survive in today’s tough retail environment, I’ve put together the best retail ideas I’ve heard and ones I’ve used myself. You’ll get ideas for going up against bigger competitors, drawing customers in during the holidays and how to survive in an era of customer showrooming.
You can use this yourself, and you may pass it along to others, too.
Not a gift, but an offer. Need to make your Shop Local campaign better?
You know all about the importance of shop local. But how is your campaign doing? I decided too much of the advice on “shop local” was written like everyone is in a big city. So I wrote a special guide for small towns. And I addressed the big elephant in the small-town room: how your local businesses are probably driving shoppers away and what to do about it.
If you’re ready to take your Shop Local campaign to a new level, take a look at the guide to Shop Local for Small Towns.

I will not ever sell or rent your email address to anyone else, because I wouldn’t like that either.
