Fremont Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Rob Brown: Time is now to seize opportunity
When I was a very young child, I can remember my parents watching the Dean Martin Variety Show on television. For the younger readers' benefit, Martin was an accomplished crooner and popular actor during the 1950s, 60s and 70s, which landed him on a very popular television show bearing his name.
Martin was well loved for his smooth melodies and simple lyrics. Based on the lyrics of his signature tune, "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime," I think he may have also been an amazing economic developer.
It was clearly evident in the iconic song when he sang about the importance of personally looking for opportunities and taking advantage of them as soon as they arise.
If he had applied that philosophy to an economic development effort, his results would have been exceptional.
Think about Dean softly singing the second verse, "Everybody finds somebody someplace ... and that time is now."
The time is now for the people of Fremont County to seize any opportunity to improve the economy by identifying that "Somebody" from their daily lives who possibly would be interested in doing business here. Each of us is in a position to make a difference.
Many of Fremont County's successful business acquisition stories began with personal invitations from people within the community.
They simply took it upon themselves to identify the prospect and then took advantage of assistance from Fremont Economic Development Corp.'s vast network of business professionals to help seal the deal.
Selling Fremont County as a business destination never has been easier.
Our county offers advantages to incoming businesses that far exceed many other locations.
One major advantage is the quality of life for employees and executives, which greatly improves employee retention, a key element in business success.
It is easy for employees to work where they want to live when they live in a county that offers:
•a beautiful mild climate,
•a love for the arts,
•a rich local history,
•low tax rates,
•low property costs,
•a ready work force and
•small-town charm with the benefits of being located in close proximity to larger cities.
Additional enticements to doing business in our county include abundant available vacant land and real estate and capable construction professionals who are able to build whatever is desired.
The county also is conveniently located on U.S. 50, which makes for easy and efficient travel and shipping.
All we need are opportunities to share these benefits in a personal manner, and our county will sell itself.
As Dean Martin said, "Everybody finds somebody someplace." Our someplace is Fremont County.
