This week’s episode is a special sort of follow-up to last week’s
episode about remote work in our small towns, and it’s special
because it’s featuring a member of the Growing Small Towns team!

listeners through the whole story and how being a virtual assistant

cattle operation in Colorado with her husband and three boys.

In this episode, we cover:
How Rebecca and Cass even got introduced
What a virtual assistant does

How to have a successful relationship with a VA or remote
What being a virtual employee can do for small-town

herself in third person

The future of small towns doesn’t depend on us finding more people; we need to better engage the ones who are already there.
