About this Episode

Former President Harry Truman said, "It is amazing what you can accomplish when you do not care who gets the credit."

For Robert Harrington this quote is the key to success in economic development in rural America. Born and raised in rural Missouri. Robert has remained part of rural America for his entire life.

When he was a boy, his grandmother instilled in him the importance of a hard day's work and giving back to your community. As an economic developer, he's remained committed to following his grandmother's advice while working as a full-time economic developer across Missouri, Iowa, and Texas.

Robert is currently the Director of Economic Development at the Bourbon County Economic Development Council in Fort Scott, Kansas.

Join Dane, as he and Robert, explore the challenges and opportunities in rural economic development success.
