Reid Montgomery is the Director Community & Economic Development at City of Rockford, and one of the nicest and calmest men I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. In a job that could easily be perceived as “high stress” and demanding, Reid gives off the calmest and most straight forward approaches to business, community and life. I asked Reid to be my guest because I do not always understand how the city works with small business, and businesses in our area. He explains his role before his job here, and now currently in this demanding role as not only the “director” but really as an ambassador to business in our area. His outlook and approach are unique and appreciated, and if you’re interested in learning more about how he does it all and more… or how almost dying affected his life… give this podcast a listen.
