Business Past: King of the Reds

Jack Van Well of Van Well Nursery promotes Red Delicious apples at the Washington State Horticultural Association Trade Show in Wenatchee in December 1953.

There’s love out there in the business world

Let’s talk about love. (Cue the crickets.) Love can be uncomfortable to discuss, especially in the business world. We love our families and friends, but colleagues and customers? In the land of assets and inventories, love feels unserious and unprofessional, insubstantial and inefficient.

Wineman’s Toast: Flavor, fragrance, color — NCW wines just get better

Judging for the fifth North Central Washington Wine Awards is now history. Still a ways off is the big event when awards will be announced and award winning wines poured for the public at the 2015 Wenatchee Food and Wine Festival. Results of the judging will be kept under wraps until the event, Aug. 22, at the Town Toyota Center.

For age 50+ individuals, entrepreneurship offers an opportunity to use knowledge and experience that has been gained during a lifetime and put it toward creating a new business that can be rewarding and challenging.
