Email Spotlight: The Robinhood Free Meetinghouse Restaurant

How do I keep customers coming back?

Georgetown, Maine: Chef Michael Gagné knows the answer. He knows his customers.

In this episode of the show, you meet people who see the world as their marketplace. They see beyond the horizon; they know no boundaries and no borders; the world's people are their family.

Michael is one eleven business owners who would rather live in Maine than anywhere else in the world. Seasoned travelers, after touring the world, they each decide to stay in Maine and make it their home and build their legacy.

Every person in this episode is committed to their community. They are active in their local Chamber and they are driven to make their community and our world a better place.  
And, we could go to every village, city and town in the world and find people like the people you meet in this episode.  
These are the quiet heroes. Many are new pioneers. They charter new waters and break new grounds. They all create unique products and services and sell them around the world. They are volunteers, the value creators, the movers, the shakers, the doers, and the lovers of life. We can learn a lot from these hardworking, decent folks.
