Defining Your Region

We asked our survey respondents a very simple question. How do you define your region? And we did got some really varied answers. The answer depends on who you ask that. If it is a business, the region is where the customers are and is not bounded by the city, county or state lines. A region as defined traditionally by the official boundaries is no more a region. Region is more of a virtual region now, with lesser and lesser geographic boundaries. If I had to answer that question, I would say all those I can reach to are in my region. With the technology available, will that be the world? Yes, but will that be my market, No!
