Hosts Kevin Hunter and Jeff O'Brien discuss the legal aspects and how-to's of owning a brewery. Jeff is an expert on assisting new and current brewers in Minnesota. Kevin and Jeff cover the business law on The Business Forum Show.
A note from Jeff:
Assisting new and existing breweries in their legal needs has become a large part of my law practice in the past five years. A few years ago, in an effort to educate prospective brewery owners as to the legal issues they would need to address in realizing their dream, I co-authored an article for The Growler entitled “The Ten Legal Steps to Owning a Brewery.” You can read the article here.
You can call this broadcast on The Business Forum Show with Kevin Hunter the “cliffs notes” version of the article. We discuss choosing a name, choice of entity, protecting your brewery name – and beer names – through trademark registration, leasing (or purchasing) real estate, raising funds and applying for Federal state and local licenses.
Host Kevin Hunter features guest Tracey Pruitt of Awaken Life Coaching & Supports LLC. In her work, Tracey provides Life Coaching for Women. Everyone needs someone in their life and business to talk things through with, process information, be it a business partner, spouse, friend.
Here's a note from Tracey on the kinds of success she has found in life coaching:
I have helped women get unstuck, by helping them discover what is important in their lives, what they have pushed down deep inside for whatever reason and then set and accomplish goals that they never thought that they could do. The hope and joy that they walk in is amazing.
One of my first successes was actually a friend that had an idea of how to decorate my office. As we were finishing it up I started asking her questions on her decorating and if she had ever thought to go into interior design as a business. Through some more questions and goal setting. She took steps and now has a business that incorporates not only interior design but much much more.
If someone is feeling stuck, on the verge of hopelessness and they want their lives to thrive...... Hope is truly alive!! What a difference a day can make. Choose to do something different. Life Coaching is a positive and encouraging way to move into the destiny and purpose all women were created for.
When you own your own business, everything comes from your own judgment, decision-making, gut feeling, hard work. Sure, you have a team of managers and employees, but when it comes down to it, you are the only person who doesn't "have a job" in your business. Some business owners don't handle the pressure very well, and as a result, the team around them doesn't flourish.
Kevin Hunter and Stacia Christensen discuss the importance of positive thought in business and how to inspire yourself ot be the best you can be in your business.

At The Business Forum Show, we often hear that business owners have trouble finding the right people to fill open positions. Don't get us wrong - there is a lot to consider in the hiring process. Employers need someone with the correct skill set for the job who is happy with the wages, demands of the position. However, the most important part of the hiring process is the interview and here's why: You can see someone's skills and experience on paper, but you can't tell what their attitude is. We've found that it's much easier to hire a willling participant and teach them the skills they need to know than it is to have a technically sound person who is stubborn or impersonable.
Whatever the case may be, consider what hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford have to make the hiring process more transparent for you. Plan for success. Make it happen!

Medical school doesn't prepare someone to own a business, but by doing his homework and adapting to the technology and changes in his field, Dr. Ozgur the other doctor partners in Longview Radiology have found success.
From Dr. Hasan Ozgur -
Why the radiology field? Radiology has become an essential part of medical field with more physicians are relying upon it for correct diagnoses and treatment. It is a heavily technology based field with lots of advances being made year after year. It has been a very exciting journey for me to witness all these changes and be part of it.

Host Kevin Hunter features guest Linda Leon of Book Marketing Professionals on The Business Forum Show. Ms. Leon states that her best learning experience was simply having to sell. Here on TBFS Radio, we sometimes meet business owners that are getting ready to get ready. In Ms. Leon's case, she just had to do get out and there make it happen.
Here's a note from Linda:
"My challenges came as a result of the personal learning curve that I had to take to learn to sell books. I had been ripped off by a predatory company, that is why I have the passion for authors. This was before print on demand and was left with a garage full of books to sell. It took me several years to get those books out of my garage but it was the best training I could have received in book marketing."
