For eight years I’ve traveled as a public speaker in schools and professional events. Approximately four months of my time is spent in Kentucky each year. The reason for Dream Built’s purchase of the 1898 Day Bros. building in Dawson Springs, Kentucky is the quick commute to I-69 (Interstate 69) for travel to major cities like Nashville, TN; Evansville, IN; Bowling Green, Louisville, Lexington, KY; and St. Louis, MO. The building serves as a warehouse for our children’s books, however the space could be much more: a studio space, a center for learning, and a residence for visitors to the area.
Numerous professionals from former Governor Steve Beshear to myself call Dawson Springs our hometown. Its beauty is found in its simplicity of lifestyle and transparency from major metropolises. My hope with the 1898 Day Bros. renovation is that it will inspire contributions from not only former peers, but also by the relocation of enthusiastic, energetic, and dynamic entrepreneurs to revive homes and businesses, changing this very special place into “A Very Very Special Place.”
I have released illustrations from my collection of more than 2,500 children’s book illustrations to fund the 1898 Day Bros. renovation renovation and new business startup. Renovations will start from the ground upward. Help us meet our goals by purchasing an illustration.
