Morgan, UT: Teresa Lake, Owner of Morgan Mercantile and Mama Lake’s Bakery, on Rural Entrepreneurship and Rural Main Streets
Show Notes

In this episode, I talk to Teresa Lake, owner of Morgan Mercantile as well as owner of, and baker for, Mama Lake’s Bakery, in Morgan, Utah. Teresa shares her story of growing up in Morgan and becoming a rural entrepreneur and business owner later in life. We talk about the importance of main streets in rural towns and about the challenges and opportunities that come with being a rural business owner. Teresa makes a strong case for visiting Morgan - hint, it includes a free cinnamon role for Rural Towns Project Podcast listeners - and we end, as always, with the Road Trip Music Question.
