The newsletter is written by Dax Jacobson, a business school professor who grew up in, and cares deeply about, the rural American West.

I thought about just opening a Word document and writing down what I came across and thought about each week as I spent time researching and worrying about rural towns and small businesses in the American West. Like Creed on the Office I would think it was actually a blog entry for people to read but it wouldn’t go anywhere. What I write still might not really end up anywhere but it also just might. It might give someone an idea, a person to connect with, or a person for me to connect with. And knowing that I’m actually sending this out into the world makes me feel some accountability. So thanks for subscribing and thanks for caring about rural towns and small businesses in the American West.
