Small town living’s great right? It can be slower-paced than city life, you’re not constantly fighting traffic, there’s a lower cost of living, and don’t forget the quirky small-town traditions. But what happens when you move back to your small town after climbing the corporate ladder only to realize readjusting to small-town life isn’t as easy as you thought it’d be?
Meet Rebecca Undem. Moving back to her hometown of Oakes, North Dakota (population 1,800), left her feeling out of place and discouraged. But this transition ultimately led her to leave her safe, comfortable full-time job to pursue a career connecting with other women and encouraging them to live life on their terms.
“We need to know who we are and what really matters because it drives all of our decision making.”
Rebecca is now a professional speaker, author of How Mommy Got Her Groove Back and is on a mission to empower women in rural communities across the country. She’s gifted at talking about topics that aren’t often discussed in society and is sharing her gift every week on the Small Town Big Talk Show. Rebecca has an incredible story and so much wisdom to share. Tune in now!
