You were not created to play small.



Today’s guest is Ashley Berg, owner of Main Street Boutique in Rugby, ND. She’s also the President of Rugby’s Chamber of Commerce, on the board of directors for the CVB and recently, was elected as a County Commissioner.

Ashey is a true ambassador for her hometown and she and Rebecca talk about how and why she chooses that attitude.

Every single one of us that lives in a small town can choose to also be an evangelist for our community.

Ashley is always talking about, promoting, sharing, and encouraging others to visit—and even relocate to—Rugby.

If every single one of us adopted this kind of attitude, think of the impact it could have on the future of communities—our schools would stay full, our businesses would thrive and our communities would have longevity.

Her energy and passion are infectious and it will inspire you to catch some for your small town!
