Things Change or.. Economic Development Develops

Like everything else, economic development has changed. It dawned on me the other day that I do not use the fax machine as much as I once did. With scanners and email and the high speed connectivity, my fax is needed only for those who have yet to embrace the technology that some of us use extensively. With travel costs skyrocketing and travel budgets not, it is a good thing that I can do photos, videos, presentations, and reports from the community, the office in Centerville, or my office in Nashville. Response to requests for information from industrial prospects aren’t limited to office hours…. or even to the office. So, if you are looking to locate in an area like Hickman County, drop me an email. You won’t be left waiting at the squawking fax machine for a response.
