Three years at the Cheesecake Factory Something to Celebrate



t Dirkse Counseling and Consulting, we are so proud of our clients and their accomplishments. We love to celebrate with them. And in May 2022, Rueben Monger had a big reason to celebrate… three years of employment at the Cheesecake Factory! This milestone was recognized in a big way by his employer – he was given a commemorative pin and a letter from the CEO thanking Rueben for his hard work and dedication.

Rueben Monger

:KHQ , WDONHG WR 5XHEHQ and his family about his job, there were so many positives to share! From the kind

coworkers and managers to the nice environment, the opportunity to stay busy, and the bonus of being inside a mall where he can visit his favorite stores before or after his shifts, Rueben could not be happier with his job. He always looks forward to going to work and gives it a big thumbs up. Rhonda Fowler, Senior

Executive Kitchen Manager shared this with me; “Ruben has really grown in his role here at The CheeseFDNH )DFWRU\ :KHQ KH ¿UVW started, he was quiet and needed supervision. Now Ruben can work on his own with minimal direction. He always stays busy and communicates when he needs something. Ruben has saved us several times in the past when we would need support, he would come in on his day off to help. He is always in a positive mood and brings a smile to work

HYHU\ VKLIW ,W LV D SOHDVXUH WR have Ruben on our team.” Congratulations Rueben!

Do you know about Business Oregon? Growing Your Small Business LOCAL BUSINESS


id you know that more people started new businesses in the United States in the past year than in any prior year in history? That’s right. Through the pandemic and economic roller coaster, more people decided to venture out on their own or with a small group of partners. This is especially true right here in Washington County which saw a 26% percent increase from 2020-2021. Nearly 7,000 new businesses were started last year in the county, and this year is on track to equal or eclipse that mark. , DP QRW DQ HFRQRPLVW VR , ZRQ¶W WU\ WR RIIHU WKHRULHV RU explanations. There are likely many interdependent factors underlying the spike in new business starts. Each entrepreneur will have their own story, their own reasons, their own goals, and their own dreams. This is part of what makes our roles at the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce so

state over the next nine years. While too complex to explain in a short article, if you are hoping to expand your small business you should explore the different options. As most small business owners recognize, you need money to grow your business. Most small businesses struggle to save enough money to fuel rapid growth. To do that they need access to capital – money to buy equipment, expand production, hire additional staff, and broaden distribution. Typically, this additional capital comes in two forms – debt and equity. Debt is a loan. You know this one. This is how you typically buy a car or a house. A bank or lender helps you pay up front, and then for the next three to thirty years you pay them back. The interest you pay is their return on investment. Businesses often secure loans to buy new equipment or to purchase or upgrade facilities. (TXLW\ LV RZQHUVKLS ,W LV money a business obtains by offering part ownership in the business.

Their aim is to help small businesses expand. Their programs are designed to leverage federal funding with other sources of capital to catalyze growth throughout the state. This growth will create jobs, attract investment dollars, expand markets, and increase revenues for state and local agencies.

Please keep in mind that many of our local small businesses are quite content to stay small. Many of our most beloved organizations here in Beaverton are happy to stay local and don’t have goals for growth or dreams to get rich.

And if your dog does end up at the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter, a current license will save you money on redemption fees when you pick them up.

These include investigating animal neglect and abuse cases, investigating dog bites, picking up stray and injured pets, and more. By doing the responsible thing for your dog, you are also helping our community. Dogs must be licensed when they reach the age of six months or get their permanent teeth. We offer a special free tag to puppies younger than six months. Your pup can wear this “puppy license” until they are old enough for a dog license. When the puppy is old enough, you or your

veterinarian need to submit the dog’s rabies vaccination FHUWL¿FDWH WR XV WR FRQYHUW the puppy tag into an adult dog license. You will start paying for the license at that point and then renew the license throughout the life of your dog. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required for a OLFHQVH WR EH YDOLG ,W FDQ EH confusing, but the rabies tag provided by some veterinarians is not the same as a dog license. The cost of a license varies. A license will cost less if you buy it for multiple years at a time instead of renewing it annually, if your dog is

point comes into play - Community! The average person living to over 90 spends six (6) hours, or more per day socializing. By getting a friend, or better yet a group of friends to join you, these two keys can be combined! Plus, you get the

added bonus of having people around you that will encourage you to keep moving – and you them.

he story of Europeans’ “discovery” of the Americas runs deep within our culture, often labeled an important piece of American history. The GHHS ÀDZV LQ WKLV QDUUDWLYH have increasingly come to light over the past several decades, but the problems affecting indigenous populations here are far from solved by this shift in thinking. The enduring impact of the past on the many native peoples living in what is now the United States necessitates ongoing acknowledgement and respect for these populations that have deep and vibrant roots in this land. The area that is now

Beaverton, for example, like many other places across the country, has been home to indigenous peoples and all their diverse cultures, traditions, and languages for thousands of years. The Atfalati people, also known as the Tualatin, inhabited what would become

Beaverton and the surrounding areas. With such deep roots, the extent of indigenous impact on modern culture in Oregon is unsurprising. Many traditional names for natural landmarks, such as Wy’east (which refers to Mt. Hood), have persisted, and D VLJQL¿FDQW SRUWLRQ RI FLWLHV LQ

Oregon bear names with indigenous roots. Even the name of the city of Beaverton derives from an indigenous language (Northern Kalapuya, spoken by people living in this area), though in a less direct fashion than some other places: Chakeipi, the Atfalati name for the area Beaverton now occupies, means “place of the beaver.” Many people talk about Beaverton every day without realizing the name’s history, just as we go about our daily lives on the traditional land of indigenous nations without acknowledging the painful history that brought us to where we are today. So, next time you see or hear about a place which acknowledges the past, take an extra moment to think about Oregon’s indigenous history. Take an extra moment to appreciate and respect its native roots. We can’t change

the past, but we can address it, learn about it, and - most importantly - create productive conversations about how to improve ourselves as we move forward. ,QGLJHQRXV 3HRSOHV¶ 'D\ is celebrated on the second Monday of October - this year, it’s on the 10th. Though some other states have celebrated this holiday for years or decades, Oregon only began doing so in 2021. As this holiday becomes more and more of a tradition, we can all take the time to learn a little more about the rich indigenous history of the places that people like the Atfalati have called home for thousands and thousands of years before it became a city called Beaverton.

Should I sell my house this year? 3 opportunities to consider REAL ESTATE


here’s no denying the housing market is undergoing a shift this season, but that shift gives you some XQLTXH EHQH¿WV ZKHQ \RX VHOO Here are the key opportunities you have if you list your house this fall. Opportunity #1: You Have More Options for Your Move The biggest story today is the growing supply of homes for sale. Housing inventory has been increasing since the start of the year, primarily because higher mortgage rates helped cool off the peak frenzy of buyer demand.

options for your own home search. So, if you’ve put off selling because you were worULHG DERXW EHLQJ DEOH WR ¿QG somewhere to go, know your options have improved. Opportunity #2: The Number of Homes on the Market Is Still Low Just remember, while data shows the number of homes for sale has increased this year, housing supply is VWLOO ¿UPO\ LQ VHOOHUV¶ PDUNHW territory.

While you’ll have more options for your own home search, inventory is still low, and that means your home will still be in demand if you price it right. That’s why the most recent data from NAR also shows the average home sold in July still saw multiple offers and sold in as little as 14 days. Opportunity #3: Your Equity Has Grown by Record Amounts The home price

appreciation the market saw over the past few years has likely given your equity (and your net worth) a considerable boost. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor. com, explains: “Homeowners trying to decide if now is the time to list their home for sale are still in a good position in many markets across the country as a decade of rising home prices gives them a substantial equity cushion . . .” ,I \RX¶YH EHHQ KROGLQJ off on selling because you’re worried about how rising prices will impact your next home search, rest assured \RXU HTXLW\ FDQ KHOS ,W PD\ be just what you need to cover a large portion (if not all) of the down payment on your next home.

This phenomenal bestseller is about four young men (well, three in their late teens, and an eight-year-old) who set out on the highway from Nebraska in 1954. Their journey careens off on many detours, and although the story is told from multiple perspectives, it always conveys a sense of epic grandeur and energetic momentum.
