Living and working in Small Town, U.S.A. it’s easy to become enchanted with conversations going on in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Dallas. The enlightened brethren of the “Big Time” tweeting and +1ing new articles and insights, leading us down every nook and cranny in an exhausting chase for rumors, mergers, and betas 6, 8, 9, and 10. The collective gossip of the business world reaffirming our position in the ‘dog and pony’.

But every once in a while, in a cosmic shift of events, a conversation begins in your area right at your front door. There was someone in your neck of the woods who wasn’t staring at the bright lights of office flats and multi million dollar marketing campaigns, instead choosing to build where they worked and lived. “You have to go there” and “Connect with that person” weren’t hard truths but the opinions of the unimaginative and dull. The mass of eyes momentarily shift to Main St., Small Town, U.S.A. and if you’re not careful you could miss the opportunity to actually engage.

*On a personal note we are very excited about the conversation popping up in Canon City and stretching onto the pages of The New York Times.
