Last year I had the pleasure of meeting up for a coffee in a small-town coffee shop with Becky McCray,  a small town entrepreneur who believes small town entrepreneurs have a lot to teach other businesses. We talked small towns, inspiration, and the vast opportunities that exist for rural businesses to prosper.

Becky travels in the U.S. and Canada as a sought after guest speaker on how to rejuvenate small towns and the power of social media. She has been to Norfolk on two occasions and is a fan of what is happening in our community.

So it was an honour when Becky recently asked me about writing a blog post on the TweetFolkTours, a unique social media initiative that I co-founded here in Norfolk.

Here it is! TweetFolkTours teaches local businesses the power of social media to get the word out
