ing program some place and I’m not exaggerating,” Tytus said, “three months later, the kid’s got the haircut, he’s got a new group of friends and they talk about nice things.” It was under Bill Tytus’ watch that Pocock Racing Shells moved to Everett after the Seattle location grew too expensive and too mired in city restrictions for a manufacturing company like Pocock Racing Shells to operate, Bill Tytus said. Moving north was the best thing he ever did, he and his son said. “Snohomish County embraces small business unlike anywhere else,” John Tytus said.

stroke based on precision rather than brute strength, which soon became known as the Conibear stroke. The Pocock brothers spent the World War I years building float-plane pontoons for William E. Boeing’s new airplane company, but in 1922, George Pocock returned to building racing shells on the UW campus and his brother went east to build boats for Yale University. At the time, metals like aluminum were coming into favor and George Pocock didn’t like it, said Bill Tytus. Pocock missed working with wood and he missed boat building. Pocock went on to become one of the world’s leading designer and builder of boats for the next 50 years, crafting the Husky Clipper used by the Washington crew team that won the Olympics in Germany. His boats continued to bring home medals for American crew teams for years. In a film called, “The Symphony of Motion,” George Pocock revels in the beauty of a thin strip of Western red cedar. Building a good boat creates “a sense of fulfillment, of good craftsmanship,” his says. His son, Stan Pocock, who took over the company when his dad died in 1976, said in the film that there’s beauty in watching a good boat being rowed: “The very idea of the thing is to make a very delicate thing go fast.”

A chance meeting It was around 1960 that Bill Tytus met the Pococks. At that time the Pocock company was still on the UW campus in the Conibear Shellhouse and Tytus was a 12-year-old boy on a bike, lured to the boathouse by something other than boats. “It was right next door to the town dump,” he said. Today it’s a parking lot, but the dump back then was huge, Tytus said. Methane gas burned off in what looked like brick barbecues, he said, “so they had this row of eternal fires and just some of the coolest stuff you can imagine laying around the dump.” Eventually, though, he did poke his nose in at the boathouse. And fell under the spell of the man who’d mentored generations of college crewmen and regarded rowing and boat-building almost as a religion. George Pocock had a lilting English accent and just about everything he said would make a good quote, Tytus said. Just a few years after that meeting, the UW’s administration forced the Pococks to move their business off campus, deciding that a private for-profit enterprise on a public school campus was in violation of university policy. As a result, George

Pocock Racing Shells employs 20 skilled boat builders who produce about four racing shells a month.

“It’s a great art, is rowing. It’s the finest art there is. It’s a symphony of motion. — George Pocock and Stan Pocock moved the company to a Northlake Way location on Lake Union, below the I-5 bridge, where Stan Pocock continued experiments he’d begun with fiberglass and composite materials for racing shells. Impressed by materials used in the aerospace industry, “he developed the first line of all carbon fiber monocoque racing shells in 1981,” according to the Pocock website. Stan Pocock died in December 2014 at the age of 91. Bill Tytus graduated from the UW and a grad-

uate degree from Harvard, spent a few years teaching in Boston and made some money building custom homes. He also knew the industry, having rowed in college and been friends with the Pococks for many years. Later his firstborn son, whom he named John Pocock Tytus, would also row in college, in Syracuse, N.Y., and fall in love with boats. “There are times — and for me it happened a lot less frequently than it did for my dad — but there’s times when you’re rowing in a boat that it’s truly transcendent,” John Tytus

said. “And it’s like, you cannot duplicate it. And it’s like my dad said, these old fogies chase this stuff, they still do, trying to get a piece of it, because it was so magical.” Rowing has the power to transform lives, said Bill Tytus, who has also coached the sport. Many are the times he’s heard from parents who were frantic because their child had gotten involved with the wrong group of friends and was getting into trouble, he said. “The last chance for this kid was, they make him go sign up for a junior row-

The nature of the Intercollegiate Rowing Association changed as did the way Olympic crews were selected. No longer did they consist of the winning college crew, as in Brown’s book, when the UW crew beat UC-Berkeley on Lake Washington and went on to race the East Coast college elite for the right to row for Olympic gold. A Vesper Rowing Club of Philadelphia crew — a composite of both college and club members — won the gold medal for the USA in 1964 in Tokyo, rowing a Pocock racing shell in eight-oared boat competition, according to historylink.org. But in 1968, the USA team used fiberglass boats mass-produced overseas and came in last in the eight-oared boat competition, marking “the beginning of the end for American dominance in world-class rowing”. If the dominance of Pocock boats was also fading, the 1960 Olympic defeat was just one of many catalysts, said former UW rowing coach Bob Ernst. (Ernst, a longtime coach for men and women rowing at the UW, was fired in November after a reported dispute with students and administration. The firing came after he was interviewed for this story.) It was “a sign of the times,” Ernst said, pointing out that the car industry was changing too; while in the 1950s, everyone was Continued on Page 8

buying Chevys, Buicks and Fords, during the 1960s, imports like Datsuns arrived on the scene. “It became more of a global market,” he said. Competition also increased in sports. Some countries had been too busy rebuilding after World War II to engage in the Olympics, he said, but in 1956 the Soviet Union participated for the first time and, in 1964, East Germany competed under its own banner. Also a factor in the change in fortunes for Pocock Racing Shells was the company’s expulsion from the UW campus, where it had no overhead. Partly for this reason, the price of $1,250 for a Pocock eight-oared boat stayed the same from the company’s inception into the 1950s, according to a December 2014 post by Peter Mallory on row2k. com. The price of an eightoared Pocock boat today ranges from $32,750 to $45,900. George Pocock could have raised his prices

Boat builder Jordan Swehla’s shirt displays the pride apparent around the factory floor at Pocock Racing Shells in Everett.

despite his lack of overhead, but having been partially paid in Boeing stock during his time there, he discovered after a few years that he was set for life, states Mallory’s post, and he wanted to pass on his good fortune to the sport of rowing. One unintended result of keeping his prices low was that no one else could compete in the boat-building market. Today there is competition from American and European boat builders.

Much has changed for Pocock Racing Shells, but a Boeing influence remains. The newest carbon fiber boats are crafted from the same material used in Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, Tytus said. The next material will also likely be one used in the airplane industry. While not “revolutionary” like carbon fiber, boron fiber is a safe bet, Tytus said, and will probably be used in boat-building when the price comes down to a sporting-goods

level. “Our boats don’t suffer from any strength issues,” he said. “We’re always looking for stiffness and boron is that in spades.”

A boat-building genius These days Pocock Racing Shells is thriving, “doing better than it’s ever done,” John Tytus said. With 20 skilled boat builders, it turns out four boats a month — from

small, single sculls to 58-foot-long, eight-oared “swing” boats like that used by “The Boys in the Boat” — and has a four- to five-month backlog. The company specializes in building boats for colleges, Bill Tytus said, and the number of college crews — which can number 50 to 60 students — has grown in recent years, largely due to Title IX. (Signed by President Richard Nixon in 1972, Title IX states that no one can be excluded, on the basis of sex, from participation in any educational programs or activities getting federal financial aid.) No one buys more Pocock boats than the UW, said Ernst, estimating that 40 of 50 racing shells at the university are Pococks. “As far as I’m concerned,” he said of Bill Tytus, “he’s a boat-building genius.” As for “The Boys in the Boat” a film crew recently filmed a documentary about the 1936 Olympic crew, with current UW crew members as extras and starring vintage boats owned by the Everett

Rowing Association. The documentary is expected to air next July on PBS, Ernst said. He said he worked closely with Brown, editing the book five times. Along with Bill and John Tytus, he’s read it several times and praised it for its vivid story line and accurate portrayal of rowing. Ernst said he’s also given countless tours of the current Conibear Shellhouse, home of the Husky Clipper, the Pocock boat given immortality by those nine working-class Washington boys. “We’ve had thousands of people come from all over the world . . .they started coming as soon as the book hit the market.” Bill Tytus said he can imagine a scenario in which the book inspires a new generation of crew. “They read the book and the book is thrilling,” he said. “And they’re driving over the bridge one day and they see the boats out there and they realize that they can actually do that. “And that would be a fine result of the book.”

Judd & Black celebrates 75 years Family lessons help guide appliance store owners By Patricia S. Guthrie For The Herald Business Journal

If you’re ever looking for the owners of Everett’s homegrown appliance store, Judd & Black, try the freight room. Or the repair shop. Or the aisles of their five stores now spread up and down the I-5 corridor. Because that’s where Bob and Cory Long often can be found doing what comes naturally to the brothers carrying on the legacy of their grandfather’s business, now in its 75th year. Company president, Bob Long III, 48, says his employees are often shocked to find him doing not-so-white-collar work. They ask, “‘Bob, why are you up in the warehouse putting away freight or running a hand truck?’ It’s because I work, this is my job,” says the matterof-fact boss of some 100 employees. “This is what I do.” Work hard, take care of customers, treat employees like family, give back to the community and don’t buy it if you can’t afford it. And for goodness sake, provide repair service for the refrigerators, stoves, washing machines, dryers, dish washers, and other major appliances that go out the door. Such business axiom has been passed down from Bob Long Sr., to his sons, Bob Long Jr. and Bill Long, then to the sons of Bob Long Jr., Bob Long III and Cory Long, 46. It’s now being instilled in the fourth generation, Taylor Long, Bob’s 24-year-old son. Working their way up — and buying out the business from the previous generation — is also a Long tradition. Bob III started doing deliveries in 1983, took out trash and worked in the warehouse.

ANDY BRONSON/THE HERALD

Third-generation owners and brothers Bob (left) and Cory Long of appliance store chain Judd & Black stand in the showroom at their Everett store. The business just celebrated its 75th anniversary.

“We care about our employees as much as we care about our customers. We’re not open until 9 o’clock tonight. We’re not trying to kill anybody.” — Bob Long III Cory started in the late 1980s while still in high school. Taylor also began learning the ropes — or wires and electronics — at a young age. But he didn’t have to, he stresses. “It wasn’t required. I decided I wanted to do it,” he says walking past rows of spanking new stoves, refrigerators, dryers, grills and dish washers. “I started at age 16 with the delivery department,

then service and parts and now I’m on the sales floor. Yeah, I’ll probably be a lifer like the others.” It’s also not unusual to find sons and daughters of long-time employees at Judd & Black’s five stores in Everett, Bellingham, Lynnwood, Marysville and Mount Vernon. One reason is the reasonable hours, steady shifts and getting major holidays off when stores are closed.

Unlike large retail stores, Judd & Black businesses are open only from 9 to 5:30 every day. Why? Because the original Bob Long wanted to be home for dinner every night and spend time with his family. “We care about our employees as much as we care about our customers,” says his namesake grandson, Bob Long lll. “We’re not open until 9

o’clock at night. We’re not trying to kill anybody. That’s why our hours are where they’re at. You have a whole other part of your life. You have children, you have family, you have church.” But where are Judd and Black? They’ve told the story countless times but seem happy to provide the history lesson one more time. In 1940, a man named Wayne Judd opened his own small electric shop selling and repairing new-fangled items. Think cake mixers and toasters. Don Black joined a few years later. In 1945, a young enterprising man named Bob Long who knew his way around wires started working for them. At the end of World War II, when rations on metal and other material came to an end, along came a new way to wash clothes using electricity. Washing machines soon became the envy of every American household. So Judd & Black got into the washing machine sales business. And Bob Long really got into the suds, soak and rinse cycles. “He thought the washing machine was a pretty cool invention and it took off,” said Rachel Sylte, marketing director for Judd & Black, who recently gathered materials for the company’s 75th anniversary celebration. “In 1976, Bob Long Sr. purchased the business and turned it into an appliance store.” He decided to keep the name Judd & Black. As did his sons and his grandsons. “These are the guys who founded it. They’re the ones who worked their butts off,” says the current Bob Long. (His father, Robert Forbes Long died in 2011.) “They’re the ones who made it. I don’t think any of us put a lot into the name. We’re branded this way. I have too much respect for what this company has done for the last 75 years to go change the name.” Bob Jr. bought the company in 1986; his sons, in turn, took over the family

enterprise in 2005, three years before the economy went boom, boom, bleak. From 2008 through 2010, the company struggled. “In hindsight we were a little bit naive,” Bob Long III, admits. “You don’t understand how to play the game until you’ve played hurt. We only knew how to play successful up to that point. We were riding on our parents’ coattails.” Once a fixture in only Snohomish County, the past four years have presented opportunities the Long brothers couldn’t pass up. They took over two appliance stores, Anderson Appliance in Mount Vernon and Lehmann Appliance in Bellingham, and also merged with Anaco Appliance in Anacortes. This means the name Judd & Black bellows from yellow and blue trademark signs up and down the I-5 corridor from Lynnwood to the Canadian border, covering Skagit , Snohomish, Whatcom, Island and San Juan counties. But the brothers say they won’t be expanding anymore anytime soon. They are careful not to overextend themselves or their company. Bob Long says his grandfather taught him “if you can’t pay for it, don’t buy it.” “Never borrow any money. Don’t ever pay interest. We don’t buy trucks or tools or office equipment if we have to finance. If you have to buy a truck, it hurts swallowing $75,000 to buy a new delivery truck. But it’s what you’ve got to have to do the job.” With hub stores in Everett and Mount Vernon, the business also has a large parts department, a large crew to install appliances and union-represented service technicians. Bob and Cory Long’s father and grandfather were both skilled electricians so they grew up learning the importance of skilled trades and manual labor. “Repairing appliances is Continued on Page 10

kind of a dying art. If you go to school, you’re going to learn how to repair computers or something like that. You’re not going to learn to repair a washing machine,” said Bob Long III. “When you buy something at Lowes or Home Depot, they don’t have repair service. So we pick up a lot of their service calls.” Judd & Black also makes sure their sales staff know their stuff, the selling points of brands like Whirlpool, Magtag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Wolf and Viking. (Mattresses and televisions, once featured at Judd & Black stores, are no longer sold.) “We have a lot of knowledge that you can’t get in big box stores,” Sylte said. “We send our sales people all over the country to learn about the latest products.” Some of their locations have been rated the top appliance store in “Best of Northwest” categories selected by the public. Community service is

also a Judd & Black tradition. Recently retired long-time general manager Rick Kvangnes was known for his leadership of Christmas House, which collects and distributes presents for low-income families. The company also supports the Boys and Girls Club, the annual Charity Golf Tournament, and many other service, art, and sports organizations. Employees are also encouraged to volunteer their time. “We’re a family company and we’re a hometown company so we help support the communities we live and work in,” said Sylte, vice president of the Skagit Tulip Festival board. The brothers can also be pretty low-key about their charitable donations, often requesting anonymity. “My brother and I were taught a long time ago by our grandparents that you know when you give, you give to give, you don’t give to get. There’s marketing promotions and there’s community donations.”

Fortive heads to Everett By Jim Davis

The Herald Business Journal

EVERETT — And now the new company has a name. Danaher Corp., based in Washington, D.C., is spinning off 22 brands, including Everett’s Fluke Corp., into a new company to be headquartered in EverJames A. Lico ett called Fortive. Fortive will employ 20,000 people worldwide. Its subsidiaries had $6 billion in revenue in 2014, and, when combined, are big enough to land it on the annual Fortune 500 list. The company is seeking to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. “Fortive takes its name from the Latin root ‘fort,’ meaning strong. Combined with a mark sym-

bolizing forward momentum, growth and progress, the Fortive brand reflects the strength of our company — a company built on a foundation of success and geared for growth and out-performance,” said James A. Lico, a current Danaher executive vice president and future president and chief executive officer of Fortive, in a news release. Fortive said that it will be a leader in professional instrumentation, automation, sensing and transportation technologies. Fluke, at 6920 Seaway Blvd., fits under that umbrella as a test- and measurement-equipment company that employs about 2,400 people worldwide. Danaher bought Fluke Corp. in 1998. Danaher announced May 13 that it was acquiring Pall Corp., a New York filtration and purification company, in a deal worth $13.8 billion. On the same day, Danaher announced that it would break into two publicly traded compa-

nies, one that would retain the name Danaher and the other, a diversified industrial company that had been referred to as “NewCo.” And now the “NewCo” name has been shed for Fortive. Danaher has said that it expects the separation of the two companies to be complete at the end of 2016. Economic Alliance Snohomish County leaders, as well as Everett city and state officials, successfully recruited the new parent company to open its headquarters in Everett. The move is expected to bring only 50 jobs to Everett, but it would be one of just 11 Fortune 500 companies based in Washington and the only one outside King County. With the revenue that it earned last year, Fortive would rank about 400 on Fortune magazine’s list of companies. Fortive will include an team with a strong Danaher legacy and will be

“committed to exceeding our customers’, shareholders’ and associates’ expectations,” Lico said. “As a standalone company, we will pursue a strategy focused on creating value through organic growth, operating margin expansion and mergers and acquisitions,” Lico said. Fortive’s subsidiaries are based all over the United States, although one of the companies, Hengstler, is in Aldingen, Germany. The closest subsidiary to Fluke Corp. is Tektronix in Portland, Oregon. Other companies under the Fortive umbrella include: Gilbarco Veeder-Root; Teletrac Navman; Kollmorgen; Thomson; Dynapar; Qualitrol; Portescap; Hengstler; Gems Sensors and Controls; Anderson-Negele; Pacific Scientific; Setra; Sonix; MatcoTools; Veeder-Root; Namco; Ammco; Ventura Measurement; Jacobs Vehicle Systems; and Invetech.

Word’s out on Experience Momentum By Patricia S. Guthrie

For The Herald Business Journal

Turns out converting a former auto body shop into another kind of body business enhances local air quality. “Most gyms have no windows so there’s no fresh air. Here we can roll up the sides because it was a garage. It sure helps with what I call gym breath,” jokes Kelly Tysland as she gives a tour of Experience Momentum, a fitness, nutrition and rehabilitation facility in Lynnwood that she owns with her husband, Shanon Tysland. Both have impressive sports credentials; she is an Olympic bronze medalist; he is a triathlete. Both are personal trainers. A love of sports and physical fitness and concern for the environment brought the couple together in 2005. Two years later, they decided to act on their mutual desire to help Shanon others pursue their “betTysland ter selves” by opening a wellness center focusing on physical therapy, nutrition and fitness for all, from the average out-of-shape slug to the elite endurance athlete. “We’re here to treat the whole person,” explained Shanon, who is 40. “Someone might come in for physical therapy because their hip hurts. But we’ll also ask, ‘How’s your nutrition? Tell me about it.’” The first Experience Momentum space in Lynnwood measured 3,000-square feet. Now, there’s more than triple the room — 10,000-square-feet — at 4030 Alderwood Mall Blvd. to stretch, sweat, bend, balance, relax, recover, revive. In a small room downstairs, yoga classes are on under way. In the front room, physical therapists work on people with sports- or work-related injuries. Behind a half-dozen closed doors, sports massages are underway and nutritionists confer with clients. In the back, a huge empty gym awaits the popular afternoon CrossFit crowds. One wall is lined with mats, weights and medicine balls while another is scrawled with directions for “WOD” Workout of the Day. In a back enclosed room, 20 stationary bikes and slots for people’s own bicycles are ready for CycleFit classes. Bearing no resemblance to its former bent and dent body banger self, the interior is white, wide and welcoming with earth tone accents and a large proclamation stating the business is part of a global partnership called “One Percent for the Planet.” Shanon explained that 1 percent of revenue is given to environmental non-profits, such as Washington Water Trust, Nature Conservancy and Plant with Purpose. More than a dozen Experience Momentum employees also recently traveled to the Dominican Republic to help replant trees on local farms. The facility has a more of a friendly, intimate feel to it than the typical warehouse-size workout centers. Instead of a long line of treadmills, bicycles and elliptical machines filled with silent, sweating men and women plugged into their own worlds and individual routines, Experi-

ence Momentum emphasizes group fitness through a variety of classes that run from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Whole families sometimes end up signing up for the center’s various offerings. And then perhaps their friends give it a try. And then friends of the friends filter in. “Ninety percent of our clientele comes from word of mouth,” Shanon said. Word has also gotten out about Experience Momentum’s Anti-Gravity Treadmill, which is used by people in need of rehabilitation after surgery or marathon-

ers who need to work out without the pressure of pounding pavement. The machine mimics the weightlessness experienced by astronauts but keeps a person’s feet on the ground, which is actually a treadmill. After stepping into, and being zipped into a clear plastic sealed skirt, a person’s weight is measured. Then, in small increments, the machine is calibrated to reduce a person’s weight by 20 percent, 30 percent, 50 percent. After a few bursts of a strange sensation of pressurized air filling the enclosed skirt, life as you know it gets lighter. “It really helps with people who’ve had joint surgery and need to get stronger but can’t put full weight on their legs,” Shanon explained. “We reduce their weight and they can run on the treadmill. It’s when you step off the machine and walk a few steps when you can really feel the difference.” Kelly, a native of Shoreline, participated in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, part of the U.S. women’s ice hockey team that won a bronze medal (Canada won the gold and Sweden took silver.) She was also on the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers women’s ice hockey team that won back-to-back national championships. It was in fourth grade, back when she was Kelly Stephens, that she first stepped on the ice. Kelly quickly found she loved playing forward, behind a face mask, stick in hand, racing toward the net. In high school, she moved to Langley, British Columbia, to attend Delphi Academy, a school with 160 students, only five of them girls but one that wanted her to play on the boys hockey team.

Kelly later got certified as a massage therapist and personal trainer. The couple met in 2005. Then for some crazy reason, they decided to get married and open their fitness business in the same month, September 2007. “Don’t really recommend that as a business model,” Shanon joked. It was just the two of them when they first opened their doors, wondering if anyone was going to check out the new fitness center in town. Now, there’s more than 35 employees, and between 350 to 400 clients every week taking dozens of classes. Their family has grown as well. The couple now have two young children, ages 5 and 2. “My grown-up job now is Mom,” Kelly, 32, says with a laugh. “But I’m still interested in training female athletes and encouraging girls in sports.” Shanon and Kelly said they chose the name Experience Momentum for their business because it sums up their philosophy. “Really, it’s all about providing a space to create breakthroughs in people’s lives,” Shanon said. “And here’s my secret. We try and trick people into pushing themselves.” So if you show up at Experience Momentum with an appointment to have your sore back treated, or your diet tweaked, expect a question like: ‘What are your thoughts on trying a triathlon?’ “It’s something they had never thought of,” Shanon says of unsuspecting converts to the biking, swimming, and running challenge. “But now they are a triathlete. We try and introduce new possibilities and get people lit up about living life.”

Small grocers face evolving challenges For The Herald Business Journal

The way millennials shop is changing the grocery business, says local grocer Mike Trask, and smaller independent stores will need to embrace new technologies to survive. Owner of the Granite Falls and Edmonds IGA stores, Trask, 61, was recently named chairman of the board of directors of the Washington Food Industry Association, a trade group representing the state’s independent grocers and suppliers. Trask took time out of his busy schedule to give his thoughts on problems the trade group faces. “One of the biggest pressures right now is the online,” Trask said. “And so all of us are starting, I think, to form a five-year plan, a four-year plan, to make sure that we’re in the online business.” That means offering loyalty cards with deals tailored to the customer and emailing ads and coupons, but also setting up websites and digital apps that allow customers to buy their groceries online. His stores already offer grocery delivery in Edmonds, where a good share of the customer base is seniors. He’s planning to expand those services this year to his Granite Falls store, he said, and both stores offer the option to order online and pick up in-store. “And that is really one of the things we think the millennials will want,” Trask said. “They can pick it up on their time frame

and not have to be home. “The millennials are going to reshape our industry.” He’s also breaking out a new shopper app this year that “will give it all to them on the phone,” Trask said, because that’s the way he thinks that’s the way millennials are going to shop — with their smartphones. Another big challenge for the independents is the line of succession, Trask said. “I got this store on a handshake and a plan-ona-paper napkin type of thing,” he said, referring to the Granite Falls store, which he bought in 1999 from brother Stan Trask and his business partner, Larry Fritz. (Hence the corporate name, Stanlar Inc., which Trask hasn’t bothered to change). But gone are the days when a person’s reputation was enough to secure

“The millennials are going to reshape our industry. ” — Mike Trask a bank loan, said Trask, who started out in the business bagging groceries and worked his way up through the ranks to store director and district manager positions. Even if the loans were there, the buyers are not. The situation poses a dilemma for some 65-andolder store owners, who’ve maybe lost their vision for the future and are just hanging on, he said. “We’re all aging and we’re not getting the people underneath us that will take over our stores someday,” he said. The Washington Food Industry Association is aware of the problem, Trask said, and has put

a lot of time and effort into developing leadership courses and a scholarship program to train a new generation of store owners. Each year, members and board members of the Washington Food Industry Association travel to Olympia to meet with legislators and talk about proposed legislation and how it will affect the independent grocery industry. The need for transportation reform is a hot topic in the grocery world, Trask said. Delivery trucks spend far too much time stuck in traffic and that costs everyone money. “From the wholesalers’ standpoint, transportation

is a lifeline to the stores,” he said, “and probably the biggest cost they have is trucks and fuel and drivers on the road.” While the chain stores can fill a truck and deliver to many stores at a time, it’s different for the independents with only one or two stores. They’ve had to cut back from three or four deliveries a week to two deliveries to maximize the trucks and reduce costs. If an order doesn’t show up in a delivery for whatever reason, store shelves sit empty. Yet gas taxes collected to fix traffic problems in Washington are not being used wisely, Trask said. For example, it costs much less to build a bridge in other states than it does here. Proposed legislation to adopt Seattle’s $15 minimum wage statewide is another bone of contention. The association accepts that the minimum wage needs to be uniform throughout the state and raised “to somewhere north of $10,” Trask said, but “we don’t accept the fact that it has to be $15.” Many of the independents already pay a $15 average wage or more, as well as medical benefits, he said, but a lower training wage is a necessity. Grocers can’t afford to pay young people $15 an hour to bag groceries, he said, yet that’s how many people, from politicians to Microsoft executives, got their start. At $15 an hour, courtesy clerks will become a thing of the past. Employees who check out groceries will also have to bag them, he said, and the level of

service will decline. “I really think this is going to be a death sentence for kids getting jobs,” he said. The ban some cities have imposed on plastic bags also needs to be made uniform throughout the state, Trask said. Regarding the Haggen debacle — in which the Bellingham-based company went from 18 stores to 164 after acquiring 146 in the Albertsons-Safeway merger, and just a few months later filed for bankruptcy protection: “There’s just no way, when they announced that, I could even have fathomed that they could pull that off,” Trask said. “In most of the industry, that was the biggest awe, that they were going to try to do that. Not that they were buying those stores, that they were going to try and pull it off.” Haggen probably got some bad advice, didn’t realize store prices were raised and by how much and didn’t understand their markets. “They’re just a great company, always have been,” Trask said. “Their forefathers were great independents. “So it’s sad to see, but I believe that they’ll come out of this with some shape or form of something that will be intact.” Independent grocers are a unique lot, Trask said, by virtue of their independence if nothing else. “That’s what make us good,” he said. “We’re all our own independent. We know what our community needs and we have our own visions.”

Even vague information is worth effort S maller businesses generally have trouble making use of “big data” or the valuable analytics that come with it. Data like that tends to be expensive and the analytics are often difficult to understand. More importantly, the information contained in big data is not always scaled down and focused enough to address the competitive issues that today’s small businesses face. And, surprisingly, big data on the competition is rarely as timely as what a smaller business can develop on its own. Most CEOs, managers, and owners of smaller businesses have some knowledge of the competition. The bulk of that knowledge, though, tends to be heavily weighted toward personal experience, and not accumulated in any organized fashion. In the end, it is rarely an integral part of the decision-making process in the business. A critical factor in the success, even the survival, of today’s smaller businesses is knowledge of the competition. To succeed in a competitive world, where large sellers often have an insurmountable price advantage, smaller businesses need to know a lot more about what their competitors are doing. And an organized, consistent effort to collect and analyze information on the competition is the key to understanding how your

business can successfully compete and prosper. Some of the information you will collect will be from individuals like your own sales staff, suppliers, and James customers. Much McCusker of the information they provide will be anecdotal, fragmenBusiness tary, disorganized, 101 sometimes vague, and sometimes even contradictory — not the stuff of data analytics. Although it will take some work to extract its value, it is well worth the effort. Fortunately, there is a useful lesson we can learn from the experience of the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the early, most critical years of World War II. The full force of Hitler’s Luftwaffe was attacking Britain with the goal of obliterating the RAF, the only remaining obstacle to the Nazi’s planned invasion of the British Isles. The air war that ensued was a battle for air supremacy, and the RAF faced desperate odds. Short of fighter planes to defend its homeland, the need for accurate data on enemy and RAF plane losses

was intense. Before the days of trigger-activated gunsight cameras, though, the debriefings of adrenaline-filled pilots contained a lot of inaccuracies. The RAF found out that organizing the information collected into a cohesive whole could provide a level of accuracy greater than the initial reports themselves — in their case providing reasonably precise counts of enemy aircraft losses. Businesses planning to use information from human beings should keep the RAF’s experience in mind. Managers should expect the sources to produce a lot of information that needs to be validated, confirmed, and generally “cleaned up” before it is usable. Most of all, it will need to be organized. A good place to start is by identifying your competition and starting a profile of each one. Basic information such as business name, location, distance from your sales point (if appropriate), ownership, whether it is a franchise or otherwise connected to other firms, and identification of the owners and management. Much of this information can be obtained from public records. You should also identify the degree of competition. Are their services or product line identical to yours, or is there just some overlap? Are you both competing

for the same target market, or are there differences? For each competitor, is the competition based primarily on price, service, expertise, location or some other factor? There is a lot of information about your competitors’ target markets and competitive strategy that can be derived from “reverse engineering” their advertisements, website pages and any banner or pop-up ads spotted. Collecting information from salesmen, from suppliers, from customer comments that they volunteer to your staff, or from other human sources, you will have to separate and extract the useful information from the idle or malicious gossip. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds, but it takes practice, critical thinking, and, most of all, organizing the information you receive. As you progress with competitive information gathering, don’t be discouraged by all of the blank spaces in competitor profiles. You will be surprised by how simply realizing what you need to know — and don’t — will bring that information to the surface. This is a very competitive world. But you can still prosper in it.

How to make New Year’s goals stick

W

ith the start of a new year, setting personal and business goals is probably on most of our minds. A new year brings a fresh start with the promise of accomplishing what we didn’t achieve in the past year or perhaps it brings new goals altogether. What can you do to set and tackle those new goals so you see them come to fruition? First, make sure you pat yourself on the back for any Monika you reached Kristofferson goals or strides that you made to reach Office your goals in the past year. Don’t Efficiency gloss over even the smallest accomplishments, give yourself a boost by being positive and acknowledging your achievements. Review your year to decide if you have any goals you’d like to carry over into the upcoming year. Or, do you want to start fresh with all new goals? Maybe last year’s goals no longer fit your needs or desires — you get to choose.

Next, get out the drawing board, whether it’s your computer or a pad of paper and a pen and start writing. Writing your goals is a solid way to be clear about what you want instead of having random thoughts floating around in your head. When you write down your goals, don’t make a big list, keep it to one or two goals, three goals max. If you try to make too many changes at one time, it’s more likely that you’ll be overwhelmed and won’t reach your goals at all. Keep it manageable. The next part of the process will help you think out the steps that are needed to reach your goals. Do this with each goal: ■ Write down a very specific goal, not a general goal. ■ Set a date when you would like to reach your goal. ■ Write down the steps that will be needed to reach the end goal. If you have a very large goal, you may need to break the big goal into mini goals so you are reaching milestones along the way to achieving the big goal. Here are two examples of what not to do: ■ Thinking about how nice it would be to lose 30 pounds, but not writing anything down. ■ Writing down, “I’d like to lose 30 pounds,” but not writing down a goal

date or the steps needed to lose thirty pounds. Extra considerations to think about when it comes to goal setting and being successful: ■ You should write down any obstacles that may prevent you from reaching your goals. If you can picture what the obstacles may be now, you can brainstorm some solutions to deal with the obstacles when then ineviteably come up. ■ You should write down the positive outcomes you expect from reaching your goals. Isn’t it nice to think about how great it will be when you reach your goals? Here’s an example of how to plan out a goal to improve your chances of success in meeting them. ■ Jan. 1, 2016 Goal (specific): Lose 30 pounds. ■ Date to achieve goal (reasonable): June 1, 2016. ■ Small steps to reach goal: —Pack a healthy lunch for work each day; — Drink eight glasses of water each day; — Purchase good walking shoes; — Walk or run 10,000 steps each day; — Place athletic shoes next to the door as a reminder to go walking; — Get on the scale every Wednesday

morning to track weight loss progress; — Reduce sugar intake; — Reduce alcohol intake; — Stop snacking after 7 p.m. ■ Obstacles and solutions: — Use elliptical inside if it’s too cold to walk outside to reach 10,000 steps; — Flavor water if drinking water is too plain; —Hike with a friend if walking alone gets boring; — Use a calorie counting app if it’s too difficult to track calories with calorie counting book. ■ Benefits of reaching goal: — More energy; — Sleep better; — Clothes will fit better; — Feel better; — Look better; As you can see, it’s a lot more work to really think about your goals and strategize how you’ll meet them instead of letting them bounce around in your head. If you want to see results, you have to take the time to plan and then implement your plans. When you start knocking out those goals, you’ll be glad you did.

Each and every one of us is an original. Shaped by unique inuences that make us who we are today. Here at Heritage Bank, we think differences can build a better bank, too. That’s why we share the best ideas from across all of our branches and local communities with one goal in mind: to serve our customers better every day. By sharing our strengths, we’re able to offer customers like Bernie Garcia—and you—more than a community bank. But rather, a community oƒ banks.
