I grew up in the middle of nowhere, 15 minutes from the nearest town of about 10k people, 30 minutes from 3 different towns of around 35k to 55k population. Simple life can be nice, enjoy life instead of being caught up in it.

That said, there are ample opportunities if you're willing to stick your neck out. I know a guy who rebuilds large capacity gas meters for us, he could increase his price by 50% and we would probably still pay it because it's so much cheaper than the factory. Find a niche where people are willing to spend money and operate in that realm. Lawn care, auto detailing, etc. Learn a skill and exploit it.
