Episode # 56 of the Econ Dev Show Podcast is now live.

Today's issue is brought to you by LocalIntel.

In this episode, Dane talks with Beka Burton of the Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky.

Beka recently failed her CEcD exam.  While many people would hide this in shame and embarrassment, Beka chose to embrace the moment and share her experiences and the lessons she's learned in a tell-all essay called I Recently Failed...

According to some statistics, up to 70% of test-takers fail the exam at least once.  So, if you want to know what that's like, listen up.

Listening to Beka, failing the exam isn't a failure, it is just learning one way that doesn't work.
