How do you revive a community? 

In today's episode, we look at how one community of 8000 that lost its main manufacturing employer decided not to quietly fade away. Instead of a brain drain, they have experienced a brain gain by encouraging entrepreneurship and collaboration between the Chamber, Small Business Development Center and local businesses. 

Deb Brown of Webster City, IA is today's guest and shares with us the blueprint for reviving a community.
