What do roses, economic development, a local pharmacy, a computer repair shop, renovation of commercial properties, & small town revitalization all have in common? Well glad you asked. One of the common denominators of all those things is Susan Myers of Pink Hill, NC. She was my guest on the show and has a marvelous background, especially in small business development and financing. She and her husband Al are doing some very exciting and extraordinary things in Pink Hill. Not the least of which is directing the upcoming Pink Hill Rose Festival on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Listen in!
