Northwest Arkansas is a happening place!

Northwest Arkansas

Just who would not want that view everyday and be within an easy driving distance of a job?  

 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Northwest Arkansas' business development and job prouction grew by 5.6% in 2013.  This ranks the area as the 26th fastest expanding economy in the U.S.  

 

Fayetteville, Springdale and Rogers have 41,600 payroll jobs in the professional and business service sector, up 1,000 from a year ago.  According to Kathy Deck, director of the University of Arkansas' Walton College of Business Center for Business and Economic Research and AWS forecasts, "This sector (Northwest Arkansas) has been forecast to be a "super sector" and will add 12,548 addition jobs to the state's economy by 2022.  

 

Northwest Arkansas now represents 20% of the employment in the state where only a few years ago it was only 15%, according to Deck.  

 

Well, according to me, this is a beautiful place to work and live.  You can be sitting on the porch and enjoying a cup of coffee at an isolated cabin within 30 to 45 minutes of Fayetteville.  There are beautiful sites, great restaurants, excellent places to get back to nature with your family and friends, enjoy a fire and a good book, pick up a few fleas at an antique stop that is an easy drive from just about anywhere.  

 

Come visit and you just might end up staying for a spell!
