What are you most passionate about regarding this program?

"Growing up in a rural town made me appreciate small businesses and gave me a passion to help more succeed. One business opened in a small town can have a larger local economic impact than multiple new businesses opening in a large city.  A small business in a rural area becomes more than just a place to buy goods, it is often the community hub for the town.  "
