Becoming an Idea Friendly Town

No more being stuck in an endless cycle of meetings, meetings, meetings that take a year to accomplish anything.

 

The Idea Friendly method is about gathering your friends and those who think like you to talk about your big idea for the community. You find the people who can help you and get started taking small steps.

 

Join Deb as she walks you through the method and you'll leave with several ideas to take home to your own town.

Deb Brown

Deb grew up on a farm outside of Geneva, Iowa, population 141. Her first entrepreneurial venture was raising a hog. You’d find her either with her nose in a history book or out exploring abandoned houses and buildings. Funny, things haven’t changed much, she’s still working on filling empty buildings in small towns.

A wealth of experience includes leading a small town chamber of commerce, foreign casualty insurance underwriting, bartending, retail management, selling knives, and working with small towns. Deb has lived in tiny towns, small towns, small cities and a major metro city. Yet, she’s come home to a small town, Webster City, Iowa, and travels to many others to help. Deb is a relentless optimist and knows how to build possibility in your small town. Better yet, she inspires you to take small steps towards a brighter future for your community.
