I’ve watched Terry Rich in action for nearly 40 years, and the guy is one of the most creative, fun and effective promoters I’ve ever been around. But not until 2004, when my wife and I moved into the tiny community where he grew up, Cooper, Iowa (pop. 30, maybe), did I understand the humble but solid start he had in life. He was challenged here but at the same time charmed. I mean, in his first big public gig, he landed on the Johnny Carson “Tonight Show,” and that led to 12,500 showing up in Cooper for its 1981 Centennial! A great thing about his story is that you can learn so many lessons from each of the steps he has taken, on his way to becoming one of Iowa’s most successful business builders and public servants.
