A Woman’s Guide to Small Town Business

Fill a need in your community.

Foolish optimism is necessary.

Pay attention to your passion, it should be nurtured.

Invest in yourself.

When you follow your passion , you love to work

You do not have to be good at everything.

Find people who are good at the things you are not and work with them.

Work with people who love what they are doing because their passion will inspire you.

Life shouldn’t be boring. If you are bored you are on the wrong path.

Discover your own community there is gold to mined there.

Money is a great tool for creativity but not the only one.

Ideas are for playing with.Turn them inside out and upside down and watch them morph and a change.

A new project is a beautiful thing, run with it.

Don’t network, care about others and they’ll care about you.

Gossip gets you nowhere, it’s mean spirited.

Be a blessing whenever you can.

  1. I admire you Deanne, you are a woman who means what she says. Proven what hard work means to achieve the goal one has in mind. I wouldn’t be surprised if you are the mayoress of Amherst one day??


  2. You are a gem. Wishing you frivolity while working hard, laughter within to overcome obstacles, and continued strength to push on. No need to tell you I know…. But I will any ways you are amazing. Thank you for being such an inspiration.


  3. Great tips! I especially like “Life shouldn’t be boring. If you are bored you are on the wrong path.”
