It’s time for a Thirsty Thursday Throwback edition.
The year was 2018, the month January. My wife Angie, the kids, and I were driving on 162nd our way to a friend’s house. We came to the stop light on NE 18th street, when Angie asked, “Has that tap house always been there or is it new?” her finger gently pressing against the passenger door window.
“I don’t know.” I responded. “Should we go by there, and see what’s up?” Angie nodded and I immediately turned my right blinker on.
In this very special episode of the Business Over Beer podcast, originally broadcast LIVE on facebook on October 22, The Gangsta of Hazel Dell brings a couple members of his posse, Bart Hansen, Vancouver, WA City Councilman and James Oneill, Business Development & Outreach Representative with Columbia Credit Union, to discuss local politics and the state of local business.
During one of the most crucial elections of our time, with record high voter turnouts driven largely by the Presidential Election, there is unprecedented polarization and tribalism created by our national political identities. Now is the time for a renewed focus on local politics, getting involved in our local community and the issues that impact our everyday lives.
This week on Business Over Beer, we welcome Katie Augsburger back to the program. Katie started her business around the same time that she got divorced, which can be a tricky thing, especially for women whose feelings of security are built up in their relationship, combined with the narrative we have about what a woman’s role is. But Katie took the leap, she broke those feelings apart and realized that she could do big bold things. Now she is a successful employee experience strategist and Partner at Future Work Design, helping organizations to design a better workplace for all.
