This year we are celebrating 19 years of serving you, the North Shore communities. We are proud to continue to meet our mission: “To Create Community Prosperity, By Bringing Together Businesses and Buyers, Through Clear, Reliable Communications”, and our Editorial Theme: “To publish material that promotes community prosperity, information and well-being.” We’ve always felt that when you know where you live, no one can give you the wrong directions home. This is true for our staff, our readers and our advertisers. As you know, technically, we’re not a “news”paper. News… by the time it hits print today… is old. We don’t publish what happened… we publish what’s happening… events, activities, on a hyperlocal basis, that are coming for the next 30 days or more. Since we don’t publish the “news” and negative things usually have already “happened”, What’s Happening! is generally uplifting and informative. We started as the official publications of local Chambers of Commerce, and have supported Chambers, Chamber members, local organizations and local communities since we began in July 1996. We were named the 2012 Business of the Year by the DBR (Deerfield, Bannockburn, Riverwoods) Chamber of Commerce, and have been described as the most successful business model in print in the country today. We have 11 distinctions, including no subscriptions. That’s why we say to our advertisers: “the secret to success is, late to bed, early to rise, work like heck, and advertise!” Advertising drives business, especially locally. Shopping locally means stronger communities. Drop a pebble in a pond and the ripples reach the shore in every direction. Our local communities are recognized as being more demanding of better service and products, so it makes sense to shop where you live. You know them… and they know you. A lot of that better service and product comes from the relationships we build with each other. So remember, It’s Shopping Season! Support your community, and your community will support you. You, our readers, support our advertisers, who in turn support What’s Happening! We thank you all. Respectfully,

Shedd Aquarium Welcomes “Ruggles” Shedd Aquarium announced the name of its newest female rockhopper penguin (Eudyptes chrysocome) chick at a recent members-only naming reveal celebration. Shedd members were offered an exclusive opportunity to vote on a name for the penguin chick between April 5 and April 11. Out of 846 votes cast, Shedd members’ votes were counted and the winning name is Ruggles. The marine mammal’s team at Shedd provided name choices reflecting the geographic native habitats of rockhopper penguins. Ruggles refers to Ruggles Bay and the facing Ruggles Island in the Falklands. Her parents are Drake, named after Drake Passage in the Southern (or Antarctic) Ocean, and Magdalena, named for an island off Chile’s coast. Other potential names included Gypsy, Lennox, Dawson, and Marta. “Our family thought it sounded like a fun, playful name, and we think she will be a fun, playful addition to the penguin family,” said Shedd member Erin.

Hatched last June, Ruggles’ gender was revealed through a DNA test at a recent gender reveal party. During one of her first check-ups, Ruggles weighed 75 grams and her most recently recorded weight was 4.9 pounds. Since 1991, Shedd has been part of a successful penguin breeding program. The aquarium has also sent its penguin experts to assist with international rescue and rehabilitation efforts. Due to disease and warming ocean temperatures, the wild rockhopper penguin population is listed as “vulnerable” by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. In addition to naming the penguin chick, Shedd members receive a number of benefits, including unlimited free admission and sneak peeks of new animals and exhibits. Membership fees help support the aquarium’s various conservation and educational programs, collections and exhibits. For more information, visit sheddaquarium.org.

A Pinch of Salt, A Dash of Pepper: The Science of Friendship Friendship has been noted to be a pivotal part of the human experience. Despite the importance of friendships, the vast literature regarding relationships has focused primarily on romantic relationships and what is needed to develop and sustain these interactions. Arguably, love is an important component of human existence. However, recognizing the importance of friendship to the health Dr. Michael Clatch and wellbeing of the individual is worth exploring as research consistently shows that people of all ages report higher levels of satisfaction if they have three or more friends. The social science of making friends is not that complex. Individuals seeking friends must be open to the ideas and personalities of others. People that are unwilling to listen to what others have to say and reject potential friends that have different personalities will not have an easy time finding friendship. A desire to connect with other people is also helpful in relating with others as it creates a foundation for openness in accepting and understanding others. Even with these ingredients in place, some people will continue to struggle to make friends. If this happens, additional effort may be needed to acquire these relationships. Often, friendship is viewed as a natural occurrence of interacting with others. Even though friendships do occur naturally as a result of daily contact with others at work or school or in the community, for some, establishing deep personal connections will take more time and commitment. If you are one of these individuals or know someone

that has difficulty in this area, you can change the situation by recognizing that friendships often require work to make them happen. Just as you set financial goals or educational goals, friendship goals can also be set. This process requires careful consideration of your behavior and what you can do to connect with others. Building friendships requires selfreflection to determine personal strengths and weaknesses. In short, to be a good friend, you have to know how to be a friend. Consider what you bring to the table in terms of friendship, and what areas for improvement may be needed for you to establish these relationships. Moving forward, this information can

be used to build strengths and to work on deficits, enabling you to more objectively assess your friendship capabilities. Although the process can be difficult and may require you to face some difficult aspects of your behavior or personality, it can provide a basis for building friendships. In the end, a dash of self-reflection and a pinch of strengthening weaknesses can go a long way to making friends. Although making friends is not a complex process, for individuals with autism or other intellectual disabilities, the process of engaging others and creating the bonds needed for lasting friendships can be difficult to cultivate. Autism and other intellectual disabilities can limit the ability of the

individual to utilize expressive language and to notice important social cues vital to understanding the needs of others. Even though these challenges exist, it is possible to learn some of the more practical social skills involved with developing and sustaining friendships. The challenge for teens and adults with autism and intellectual disabilities is to recognize that making friends is important and that additional work may be needed to achieve this important goal. Once the importance of friendship has been identified, individuals with disabilities can begin the process of working toward improving their social capabilities. While engagement in social skills training provided in schools and through therapists can be an important first starting point in this process, individuals with autism and other disabilities must also recognize personal attributes and skills that can be a benefit or a detriment to the development of friendships. In short, individuals in this position must keep in mind that making friends can be a difficult task – one that will require them to engage in some type of self-reflected in order to be effective at being a good friend. Developing these skills and creating the capabilities needed to engage with others and develop meaningful relationships will be a notable undertaking, but the process has rewards that last a lifetime. As such, even through the process may at first seem difficult, there is a real motivation for individuals to seek out close friendships and to work to make these relationships work over the long term. Dr. Clatch practices at the Courage to Connect Therapeutic Center, 2400 Ravine Way, Suite 600, Glenview. For more info, call 847-347-5757 or visit couragetoconnecttherapy.com.

TRAVEL

Palace, Plaza, Museums and Market put Madrid on To-Do List Madrid is a perfect snap-a-sight, Twitter hashtag or Facebook-it city. It’s a fun series of tapas snacks-washed down-by-beer city. And you won’t gain weight, because Madrid is a walking city. Start at the Tourist Information Center. It’s number 27 in the Plaza Mayor (emphasis on the last syllable). From a brochure, you can learn that the plaza was formerly called “Plaza del Arrabal” and “Plaza de la Constitución, and why. Esmadrid.com/ Jodie Jacobs en/tourist-informationmadrid You can get advice, tours, brochures, maps and buy a Madrid Card at the tourist center. Similar to CityPASS, the Madrid Card has discount entry to several attractions. Even better, you won’t have to wait in ticket lines. The Madrid Card package includes walking routes, guided tours and attraction descriptions. Before heading out explore the Plaza Mayor. Pop into an amazing hat shop for photos and to find wonderful ceramics. A sign embedded in the walkway outside the entrance gives its 1894 founding date. Check out other shops, then relax at an outdoor café. Esmadrid.com/en/plaza-mayor For dessert, queue for hot chocolate and churros (long, crisp donuts) at Chocolateria San Ginés. It’s down an alley-like street across from the plaza that ends at the San Ginés church. Or try tapas, beer and sherry and other taste treats at the Mercado de San Miguel (San Miguel Market), across from the Plaza at

Calle Cava de San Miguel. Inside, you buy everything from cheese to tasty bites and sweets from stalls around the edge then sit in the center to savor them. Sherrywinetaste. com/market-san-miguel-in-madrid/ Walk off the taste treats by heading to the Royal Palace. The over-the-top marble and glitz of Palacio Real is about 15 minutes away on Calle Mayor. But you can ask for directions at the plaza’s Tourist Information Center. Esmadrid.com/en/royal-palacemadrid Before going inside, look over the countryside from the palace’s vast courtyard. On the way back, stop at Restaurante Botin, favorite Hemingway hangout that is among the oldest – Guinness says the oldest, founded in 1725 – continually operating European restaurants. Botin.es/?q=en Put the art museums near the Fountain of Neptune on Paseo del Prado on the to-do list. But be kind to your feet and save the museums for the next day. Then admire the Rubens, Goyas and El Greco works in the Museo Nacional Del Prado. Museodelprado.es/en Cross the circle with Neptune’s statue to go the ThyssenBornemisza Museum. Pop Art Myths including Roy Lichenstein will be there mid-June to mid-September followed by “American Impressionism” early November 2014 to early February 2015. To see Picasso’s famed “Guernica” and works by Miro and Dali, walk a few blocks to the Reina Sofia Museum. Tip: If taking a taxi to the market or museums and you don’t speak Spanish, ask your hotel concierge or doorman to write down where you want to go. The surprise is how few drivers speak English. You will also want to have a slip with the name and address of your hotel for the return trip.

JODIE JACOBS

The Fountain of Neptune is just one of many fantastic sights in Madrid, Spain. Another option is to take a Madrid City Tour Bus through “esMadrid” or a hop-on, hop-off bus through “Tourist Active.” But even when you get off the bus you will want comfortable shoes to explore the attraction. When doing Madrid, you definitely need your walking shoes. Accommodations: Madrid has lots of options from hotels to condos. Among them is the Hotel Intercontinental on Paseo De La Castellana. The staff is very accommodating.

In addition, La Castellana is an elegant boulevard near good stores. Ihg.com/ intercontinental/hotels/gb/en/madrid/mddha/ hoteldetail Jodie Jacobs is a veteran journalist who loves traveling.

French School Students Raise, Release Their Butterflies Students at the French School in Winnetka recently released butterflies raised for over a month at Dwyer Park, chasing them from flower to flower. “Having butterflies in the classroom helps the children learn about animal life, which is an integral part of the French curriculum,” explains kindergarten teacher Fanny Block. “We learn about the life cycle and how animals grow.” Students recorded changes as caterpillars made their cocoons and hatched into butterflies. “They especially enjoy feeding the butterflies pieces of fruit and watching them suck up the nectar,” said preschool/junior kindergarten teaching assistant Marie Barraud. Avoca West and Marie Murphy Students Collaborate on Writing Project During the month of May, District 37 teachers Jennifer Stefan (third grade) and Andrea Bialk (sixth grade) collaborated for the fifth year on a writing project. Third grade teachers, including Tom Erf, Stephanie Rick and Vicki Specks, partnered their students with sixth grade buddies to create books to send to Ghana. Students at both schools used Google Docs to create their book pages, enabling the partners to collaborate easily. When students from both schools finished, the third graders created illustrations. The books were assembled when third grade students from Avoca West in Glenview took a field trip to Wilmette’s Marie Murphy to meet their buddies face to face. Pairs worked to assemble and create book covers. Avoca West students also learned about the country of Ghana. Kim Zimmer, a technology teacher at Avoca West, spent some time in Ghana several summers ago and shared her experiences. Students send the books and donated supplies to students in Ghana through Kids to Kids International (KTKI). Since 1991, the non-profit organization has provided an educational program for children to send Friendship Boxes of educational supplies and student-created books to children around the world.

RESTAURANT SHOWCASE

Bluegrass is a Cajun Destination Order the Crawfish Etouffee at Bluegrass, and you could easily imagine yourself at one of those provincial Cajun country joints instead of a lively little restaurant in the southern sector of Highland Park. Or tear into a hefty rack of Baby Back Ribs and let your imagination take you to some ramshackle barbeque shack deep in the heart of Texas. The dining odyssey goes overseas with Fettucini Alfredo Chuck Pecoraro similar to those served in the enticing trattorias of Italy. And the Orange Sesame Chicken can transport you on a make-believe trip to the exotic eateries of China. Vibrant Southern, Southwestern and other cuisine originating from stops along the worldwide culinary tour is what distinguishes this popular neighborhood restaurant, featuring food from many diverse neighborhoods. Bluegrass doesn’t have a slogan, but if it did, “Laissez les bon temps rouler” (French for “Let the good times roll”) would fit perfectly. The good times not only roll here, but the place also rocks with customers who relish a taste of the South in their mouths. Though the menu is eclectic, Cajun dishes take center stage. The spirit and culture of Cajun cooking has been sustained since 2004 by personable owner Jim Lederer, who with chef Brian Bishop, preserve the integrity of Gumbo,

Jambalaya, Tilapia Sassafras, Dirty Rice and other trademarks with innovative recipes and nuances, quality ingredients and deft seasoning. The first dish you should try to get into the Cajun zone is the Gumbo. The rich stew is dense with chicken, Andouille sausage, peppers, okra, celery, dark roux and rice sparked with not-too-hot spices. It’s a super bowl, as robust as you’ll find north of N’awlins. Equally Southern and savory is the classic Jambalaya. Chicken and sausage are slow simmered to bring out the intrinsic flavor, with rice adding a nice counterbalance as the sauce, seasoning and optional shrimp complete the treat. In Low Country gastronomic jargon, etouffee means “smothered.” Here, sweet-tasting crawfish tails are smothered with a serious sauce of seafood stock, roux, rice and pinch of spice. The flavors linger long after the last morsel is swallowed. Another entree that stands out like a frantic fiddler at a zydeco gig is the Blackened Grouper. Thankfully, it’s not overly blackened into a lump of charcoal, but cooked just right and amplified with creamed corn and crawfish risotto drizzled with lemon buerre blanc. Moving on from Louisiana to Texas, the Baby Back Ribs are a fine mess of good eating. The well-endowed slabs are dry rubbed, hickory smoked – not baked – slathered with a sassy sauce and teamed with baked peanut brittle beans and taters. As you grab hold and start gnawing at the sweet meat, your fingers get sticky while your palate gets pacified.

Bluegrass’ Blackened Grouper is served with creamed corn and crawfish risotto. If you’re not exactly ragin’ over Cajun, the sushi-grade Ahi Tuna with sesame seaweed and togarashi (hot pepper), Tomato Basil Penne, eight-ounce Angus Beef Burger and any of five luscious steaks are appealing alternatives. Be sure to save room for dessert, which upholds the Southern theme with Ice Box Pie (pecans, caramel, shaved chocolate and graham cracker crust), Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding (with cayenne tinted Jim Beam whiskey) and old favorite Bananas Foster (with rum and cream de banana liqueur). Liquid refreshments include 40 craft beers – no Bud or Miller – and a wine inventory listing 85 all-domestic labels. Service is informed and informal. Located near Ravinia and Botanic Gardens, Bluegrass seats 85 in a no-frills, quasi-rustic

setting with understated motif and a cozy bar. When the weather cooperates, a 20-seat outdoor patio accommodates the overflow of frequent full houses. Bluegrass, 1636 Old Deerfield Road, Highland Park; 847-831-0595; bluegrasshp.com. Entrees: $12.95-$29.95 Appetizers, salads, desserts: $6.95-$21.95 Sandwiches: $12.95-$18.95 Tue: All-You-Can-Eat Cajun Combo: $23.95 Kids menu: $7.95. Tidbits: Lunch, dinner Tue-Sun.

Get Your Vehicle Ready for Summer Summer is a popular time to embark on memorable family driving trips. Whether or not you’re planning one of these mobile adventures this year, here is some practical advice that might prevent some unexpected mechanical problems from ruining your driving plans this season. Hot summer weather causes your engine, cooling system, transmission, electrical and air conditioning systems to all work harder under intense heat and pressure. Compounding this demand by weighing your vehicle down with passengers and cargo leaves little room for deficiencies. Any marginal vehicle components are more likely to fail under these taxing conditions. Hilly or mountainous driving will also require your vehicle to be in top condition to handle their extra demands. Especially after such a severe winter, it is important that your vehicle has clean fluids, filters, and that all systems are in sound working order. Good tires and brakes, belts and hoses, wiper blades and battery are a must. Additionally, you will want to make sure those pesky dashboard warning lights are all off and check that all its exterior lights will go on. Before an extended driving trip, it is always a good idea to take your vehicle in for any required maintenance according to the manufacturer’s schedule. For your safety and peace of mind, most dealers’ service departments and good repair shops will give your vehicle an overall inspection at no extra cost while it’s in for an oil change or other service. Even if you’re not planning a major road trip this summer, but driving a safer, more reliable and better performing vehicle is important to you, here is something to consider. Your dentist and physician always stress the importance of personal dental and health care. This same preventative maintenance philosophy works just as well

for your car. Today’s vehicles can actually withstand a lot of abuse, but machines will eventually break if not maintained properly. I suspect that many of you may have gotten away with doing very little maintenance on your vehicles without any consequences – in fact, some owners brag to me about it – however, over time you probably won’t be as lucky. In a popular 1970s TV commercial for Fram oil filters, the mechanic working under a car overhauling the engine says to the viewers, “You can pay me now, or you can pay me later.” The advertiser’s point being that spending $4 to replace an oil filter regularly can save you the expensive cost to rebuild an engine due to neglect. In my opinion, this is just good common sense. In fact, the best advice I can give to anyone who owns a vehicle and plans to keep it a long time is simply this: do all of the factory recommended maintenance on time and use a high quality gasoline brand of the required grade. The small extra cost of caring for your vehicle in this way is an investment that will reward you with many trouble-free miles over the years. As for those of you planning a family road trip this summer, please drive safely, be nice to each other and enjoy your adventures together! Contributed by Gary Eisenstein.

TECHLIFE

“Shortcut Keys” Rhymes with “ABCs” A is for Apple. B is for Ball. C is for Car. Yawn. We learn these simple phonetic tools early in life. The idea is, the first letter helps a developing brain associate the sound with the noun: person, place or thing. Adding to the learning a picture or drawing helps further reinforce the letter shape to the sound to the picture. It is typical to not use verbs in most cases, Dave Kaufman because they are harder to visualize. Double yawn. “Did I just walk back into Early Childhood Development? I thought Techlife writes about, well, Tech.” Ahh, young grasshopper – this is a good time to remind you of our mission: “Techlife, where the crossroads of Technology and Life intersect.” “Well, if you don’t get to the point soon, I am going elsewhere.” For years, computers have had a way to speed up the way you work. Since the early days, there were always a series of key combinations allowing users to perform many tasks and navigate their computer, even without a mouse. The earliest two I used were CTRL+ALT+DEL and CONTROL + Open Apple + RESET. Remember those? The first one was used for the PC and the second used on early Apple machines (pre-Mac) to reboot them. How many people remember jamming those three down hard when the computer got you upset? C’mon, raise your hand. It was the ultimate power, forcing the computer to your whim.

and Paste are built for speed. Mostly Copy CTRL+C/CMD+C and Paste CTRL+V/CMD+V in my case. These are used many times a day – big time saver. 4. A - Before you copy, cut, bold, italic or underline, you need to select the text. If you need it All, then CTRL+A/CMD+A is the fastest command of the bunch. Boom, you’re done! 5. B, I, U – Style is everything. This entire column has been styled with Bold, Italic and Underline. CTRL+B/CMD+B for Bold and CTRL+I/CMD+I for Italics are used quite a lot in writing. CTRL+U/CMD+U is used to Underline text.

Reboot now! I command you. Another fond memory is the first time you showed a friend or family member how to reboot the computer, them hitting each key in order, then complaining because nothing happened. The magic was the combination, pressing all the keys simultaneously. Presto! Reading a recent article about keystroke shortcuts, I thought how few of the more than 200 combinations I actually used. The problem is quantity; with so many options, being able to use them regularly enough to remember them all is arduous. But then I started to realize…I am a power user, and I bet you are, too. Let’s go over some basic, useful time saving keystroke combinations everyone should be using to help speed along their work. In the spirit of debate, I have ranked them in order of importance.

KEY: Windows = underlined / Mac = italics / Windows & Mac = underlined italics 1. TAB – CTRL+TAB/ALT+TAB/ CMD+TAB - In Windows/Mac, the TAB key combo is powerful. It does a ton to speed up access. ALT+TAB/CMD+TAB in the operating system cycles through open windows. In a tabbed browser or program, CTRL+TAB /CMD+TAB cycles through tabs. In online forms, spreadsheets and more TAB advances to the next field.

CONVERSATIONS IN COMMERCE

Bob Tucker, Owner of Senior Helpers in Northbrook and Dementia Care Provider Thank goodness for my office manager and children. WH! What’s your favorite movie? BT: “Saving Private Ryan.” The Greatest Generation lived through, and contributed so much to the world – and thank God they did. Now it’s our turn to take care of them.

WH! The world would be a better place if… BT: We would all help seniors live their best lives possible through all of their days on this earth. The scams and the disrespect afforded our seniors drive me crazy. The challenges they face with our healthcare system drive me crazy. The family situations where seniors are not helped appropriately, sometimes even abused, drive me crazy. You might say I am a bit crazy.

Bob Tucker is a Qualified Dementia Care Provider, speaking regularly to healthcare professionals and families struggling with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. His Senior Helpers office has won multiple awards as one of the top Senior Helpers locations in the world, and was recently recognized as One of the Top Home Care Agencies in North America by Home Care Pulse, a leading customer satisfaction research firm. Tucker’s office was also selected as the Chicago area affiliate office for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. He also serves as president of the board of directors of the Children’s Advocacy Center for sexually abused children and the Senior’s Professional Assistance Network. WH! What was one of your first jobs? BT: Working for U.S. Steel’s railroad, where I repaired track and railroad cars. I got a great tan, a couple of muscles and a real appreciation for how hard many people work to feed their families. I’ll always appreciate the advice several of the men shared with me: “Go back to school and finish your education, so you won’t have to do this your whole life.” I was back in school for the start of the next semester. WH! What aspect of your business are you most proud of? BT: This is the only position I’ve ever had where we are helping so many people, every hour of every day – seniors, people with disabilities, their family members and other healthcare professionals. We really do make a difference in people’s lives – typically, when they need it most. WH! Tell us about one person instrumental in the success of your business. BT: When my wife Abbie retired after a long successful career working with children with disabilities, she took two days off and then volunteered to come work with me at Senior Helpers. It didn’t take me long to agree to that, and she worked really cheap –free – as I was at the time. We were just getting the business off the ground. She knew how to work with people with challenges and their family members, so she took the reins of our client services team and caregiver group and made sure we were doing our best to improve the lives of everyone we were working with. WH! What’s your business’ mission statement? BT: To be an advocate for every senior and their families, regardless of possible personal gain, and to always do the right thing. WH! Are you a Mac or a PC? BT: I use a Mac at home and a PC in the office; I am not that good with either of them.

WH! One business-related piece of legislation that should be passed right now is… BT: In-home care coverage for seniors. Longterm insurance is wonderful, but so many seniors today don’t own one of these policies, and some of them have a tough time paying for the healthcare services they really need. We’ve got to find a way to help all of them get all the help they need. WH! What innovations or new ideas has your business given to the community? BT: We have a unique, state-of-the-art program to educate our staff, caregivers, family members and healthcare professionals about Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia like Parkinson’s, Vascular Dementia and Lewy Body Dementia. The training that we have received from our corporate team in Baltimore, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and through an Occupational Therapist by the name of Teepa Snow – probably the foremost dementia educator in America today – has enabled us to pay it forward and bring desperately needed information on these diseases to our entire community. Last year, I did 22 of these presentations to nurses, social workers and other professionals working with seniors and friends and family members being impacted by these diseases. I am on track to do another 22 this year.

WH! Why did you start your business in this area of metropolitan Chicago? BT: My wife and I wanted to move to this area to be closer to my dad, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s.

Regardless of what type of product or service your business is – believe it or not – you are a salesperson. If you think being a salesperson has a negative connotation, you won’t succeed in your business. There are other factors to consider, as well as how you perceive yourself, if you want to be successful. The United States Small Business Association lists these characteristics to consider: Vicki Gerson You Are Persuasive Although your ideas may be fantastic, if you can’t convenience your employees, customers, potential customers, vendors or lenders, you will find entrepreneurship a challenge. Are You an Independent Person? As an entrepreneur, you must make many decisions on your own. Can you trust your instincts, or your gut? You must also be a person who has somewhat of a hard shell, because there are times you will be rejected. You Must be Comfortable Taking Risks When you are your own boss, it means you’re the one making tough decisions. Entrepreneurship involves uncertainty. The economy may be good one quarter or year and bad the next. You must be prepared to whether the storm when times are bad. If you are a person who is afraid of uncertainty, or you don’t think you could handle down times in your business, becoming an entrepreneur is not for you. Are You a Creative Thinker? Businesses just don’t stand still or stay in a vacuum. You must be creative, and that means being on the lookout for new products or services. Look for ways to solve your customers’ problems, along with ways to allow those customers to serve their SUMMER FESTIVALS, PAGE 21

This means getting a lease that benefits you to finding vendors who will supply you with what you need at fair prices. If you don’t believe you have the right skills at this time to negotiate, find a mentor or a business coach who can teach you how to become better. It is important that you don’t just depend upon your negotiating skills. It always pays to have a good lawyer who can read the fine print in contracts. Do not sign contracts unless you really know it’s to your advantage or that the terms are fair. Get Your Support System in Place Before you start a business, make sure you have a support system in place. In the first few months before your business opens and the first few months afterwards, you will make important decisions. Have you put together a board of three to five people who will meet with you and provide support and advice? If you don’t have a board, do you have a mentor? Find a person who is quite knowledgeable about the business world and willing to become your mentor. As people are retiring or being forced out of corporations, many think they want to start their own business. Know what you’re doing before investing all your hard-earned cash in a new venture.
