Business Tip WHO’S THE BOSS IN YOUR BUSINESS?
There is only one boss, and whether a person shines shoes for a living or heads up the biggest corporation in the world, the boss remains the same. IT’S THE CLIENT. She is the person who pays everyone’s salary and who decides whether a business is going to succeed or fail. And she doesn’t care if a business has been around for 100 years. The minute it starts treating her badly or taking her for granted, she’ll put it out of business. The boss, THE CLIENT, has bought and will buy everything you have or will have. She’s bought all of your clothes, your home, your car, pays for your children’s education and your vacations. She pays all of your bills, and she pays in exact proportion to the way you treat her. The man who works inside a big office building or plant might think he works for the company that writes his paychecks, but he doesn’t. He is working for the person who buys the product at the end of the line. In fact, THE CLIENT can fire everybody in the company from the president on down. Continued on Page 4
Time to Ride One of my favorite activities is to go snowmobiling with my son Gerik. We have been riding throughout this winter in even in the low snow conditions, often bouncing over more rocks and dirt than snow. We get lots of strange looks riding double especially since Gerik is now bigger than I am!! He loves the adventures we get into and never complains when I get us stuck and he has to wait while I dig us out. He My son Gerik waiting for me to go for a ride bedoes get impatient tween Cook and Coleman Canyon’s north of Elwaiting for dad to get lensburg. Photo taken Sunday February 23rd. everything ready to go. Often Michelle comes with us and hangs out at a fire reading while we go play. Some might think taking a kid who is non-verbal and has autism riding to be risky or even impossible. I find it empowering for Gerik to have a chance to go play in the snow and feel the speed and thrill of plowing through the snow. Life is a risk, people die sitting on their couches.

Jerrol’s Plans a Building Expansion and Facelift
We have officially announced our plan to join forces with Winegars Homemade Ice Cream & Coffee to offer coffee, ice cream and light food at our current location on University Way. The goal is to add 5000 sq feet to the west side of the store with Winegars leasing the front half. Clients will be able to walk between the two stores, but each will be able to operate independently when the other is closed. The remaining space in the addition will be used for a 1000 sq foot conference room available for parties and meetings and our receiving area will move from it current location to the back of the new space.
farm on the north (or country) side of 15th street in Ellensburg. In the early 1960’s they opened Winegars Drive In Dairy that included a bottling plant and retail sales. I can remember the smell and sound of the glass bottles when mom would take me to get our milk. They had a small freezer with ice cream treats. Funny I would remember that!!!! Gary Winegar, Truman’s son took over the operation. Gary’s daughter Richelle came back to the business in 1992 and added the homemade ice cream. In 1994 Richelle’s brother Kori joined the business bringing espresso. Last year Winegars was recognized as having the Best Ice Cream in the Northwest by King 5 TV’s Evening Edition. You can find more information and find updates on our plans at Expansion.Jerrols.com.
___________________________ Corrie’s Craft of The Month
Rubber Band Loom Crafts It is all the craze with the young ones, almost like the Beatles in days gone by.
The building will feature two covered drive through windows and some new parking spaces on the west side. There will also be outside seating. The design reflects Jerrols history of a 1950’s dinner and drive through. We hope to have a grand opening in August, but we are learning that commercial construction can be a slow process!! This is such a great fit with both Jerrol’s and Winegars sharing similar business histories starting just one year You will find everything you need from the looms, rubber bands and instruction books. There is even starter kits. You can make different patterned bracelets, rings and even a mini handbags. apart and both changing to meet our clients needs.. The Winegars story began in 1948 as a dairy herd on their

Some of the largest companies that had flourishing businesses a few years are no longer in existence. They couldn’t or didn’t satisfy THE CLIENT. They forgot who the boss really is.
