~~~Ripple effect “I am very interested in reading Economic Development for the Team. I heard you talk at a conference nearly 20 years ago. At the time a friend of mine had just been elected mayor and I was elected alderman. He put me in charge of economic development. After the conference I read your book (Economic Development: Marketing for Results!) and from that start we ended up four years later with an industrial park, a full time E D director and a couple of pretty big infrastructure projects. This all led to significant job growth (for our small town).” Craig Wetter, IL. Bottom line, you may never know the impact you have from an action you take today. Be your best every day. You too are impacting lives! Eric
