Economic Development Is Not For Amateurs!

Veteran economic development experts Jay Garner and Ross Patten co-author Economic Development Is Not For Amateurs!, a book focused on helping community leaders achieve economic development success.

“Working with community leaders who do not do economic development as their day job has been a passion of mine for 40 years. I’ve always believed that it is incumbent on the economic development or chamber of commerce professionals to help their community leaders understand the complexities of successful economic development efforts. This book gets you there,” Garner commented.

Designed for policymakers, elected officials and community volunteers, the book explains how to transform local, regional, or state economies and spearhead community revitalization efforts to attract jobs, investment and residents. Offering practical, real-world solutions, Garner and Patten identify the steps that communities of all sizes can implement to create long-term economic success.

“Many people make economic development success too challenging for themselves when it doesn’t need to be,” Patten stated. “Our book breaks down the challenges for the reader to comprehend and helps policymakers and community leaders hit the ground running by modeling strategy, tactics, and best practices from across the nation and help guide their future success.”

The book, published by Kindle Direct Press (KDP), can be purchased through Amazon as either an eBook or paperback. To purchase the book in either format, click here.
