Madeline Moore is a young mom, rural entrepreneur and founder of Rethinking Rural, which is a network of engaged millennials working on rural issues at a national scale.
In 2018, Rethinking Rural invited 50 rural millennials to Port Townsend, Wash. to discuss how to improve rural communities. Three more symposiums are planned over the next three years.
In this episode of The Rural Business Show, Moore shares why she returned to her hometown so quickly after college. She discusses how the mindset is changing on how rural young people can live and work successfully in small towns. She reflects on the successful bakery business she started after moving back and the lessons learned there. Then we focus on Rethinking Rural. We look at what the goals are as the organization connects rural millennials throughout the U.S.
