Guests in studio this week:
After graduating from the University of Washington with a BA in Accounting, Michael started off his employment as a CPA and spent about 15 years there before he found out how useful Personal Computers were becoming in the late 1980s. After sharing the rest of his professional endeavors between Accounting versus Computers and Networks, he went back to school in 2005 in order to pass Microsoft-sponsored exams and qualify for the title of Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator. He then went into business for himself, where he remains today, and calls himself the “Windows House-Call Computer Guy”. His business is Michael LaGris, Computer and Network Services, and he provides Microsoft Windows computer and network services to individuals in their homes, and to small home-based businesses. In today’s The Money Hour segment, Michael talks about his on-site computer and network services. Listen to Michael’s segment.
Judi Tsuchida, who grew up in Weiser, Idaho, opened Fena Flowers in 1988 almost a decade before she had initially intended. The mother of a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old wanted to open her own flower shop once her kids were preteens but when the opportunity arose for her to start her own business, she decided to jump on it. Over the last 32 years, Fena Flowers has been a Kirkland favorite for exemplary arrangements and service. For Tsuchida, working in a flower shop has been a 55- year passion. She grew up working in her aunt’s flower shop and still screams with excitement when boxes of flowers are delivered. In today’s The Money Hour segment, Judi discusses how the flower industry has changed. Listen to Judi’s segment.
