Why Be in the Country?

So you run a business or want to run a business and you live in a rural area. Why?

You want to be near relatives so you can more easily attend christenings and barbecues?
You like clean air?
You're an introvert that likes sparse populations?
You feel stuck, and for circumstantial reasons can't move to a creative center?

The Nauvoo Commuter lived in the world's largest city for 12 years and decided his children needed a better way. He moved to the country by choice. Now I have a harder time communicating with clients in Europe and Asia. But the tradeoff is worth it. I make the best of what I have. My business tries to embrace the strengths of rural life.

The Nauvoo Commuter hopes your location choice will be a choice, not a default or refusal to choose.
