Kari Hume Health Mentoring 10/8/18

picture

Kari Hume Health Mentoring began when owner Kari Hume set out to provide an easy and affordable way for the whole family to improve their health and nutrition. Her passion for natural and lasting health developed over nearly 4 years of health challenges with her oldest son ranging from severe and chronic digestive problems and food intolerances to anemia, eczema and immune suppression. Once Kari found out how powerful food is and saw the changes in her own family, she wanted others to have the same hope and tools for better health with the support of a health-minded community.

In March of 2017 Kari completed a 12-month program at the world’s largest nutrition school (Institute of Integrative Nutrition) earning her Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching certification. Around the same time, she was also introduced to Juice Plus and Tower Garden. When Kari noticed her son’s digestive problems dissipating and they could cease his medication, she was intrigued by the product and even more so by the community. Instead of charging a per-session or monthly fee for health mentoring as she had originally planned, she decided to offer health mentoring at no charge for those who add Juice Plus to their daily regimen. As others have found the benefits of an easy way to get in over 50 plants a day with this program, they too have decided to share the information. With a long-term passion for business, Kari loves helping other through business mentoring as they help others find hope and health. There are several people on her team in Logan County that are equipped to help others through their own health journeys including Miranda Koester, RN of Padroni, Cindy Curtis of Peetz, Melanie Soper of Sterling, Karen (Schumacher) Benson of Sterling, Glenna Phelps- Aurich of Sterling, and several others.

Each month they offer a healthy living event such as a Salad-in-a-Jar where attendees take home ready-made meals that stay fresh for over a week. The team also enjoyed hosting the Tower Garden at the Wellfest earlier this year. The Tower Garden allows growth of fresh produce year-round with minimal water, no weeding and increased yields.

Kari specializes in health mentoring for both parents and children as well as business mentoring for team members.  If someone is serious about making a permanent improvement in their health, Kari mentors them through a 120-day transformation, and then supports them as needed afterward once healthy habits are established. You can find the full list of products and services that Kari provides at karihume.com/services or find her on Facebook @theflourishingfarmacy.

IMG_0326

Marc Reck has been licensed and selling farm and ranch real estate since 1979 and relocated to Sterling in 1986. In 1990, Marc and his wife Jennifer started Reck Agri Realty & Auction. In October of 2013, they moved to their current location at 535 E Chestnut.

Reck Agri Realty & Auction is a land brokerage business, helping people sell and buy farm and ranch real estate. When working with sellers, Reck Agri provides a choice of selling their property by private treaty or auction. Reck Agri conducted their first land auction in 1988, averaged one to two auctions per year and then in 2001, made the decision to specialize selling land by auction. They have developed their own proprietary multi-parcel live auction bidding platform, added timed only auctions, and to date, conducted over 309 auctions. Their sales territory includes 31 counties in eastern Colorado, Nebraska Panhandle, southwest Nebraska and Northwestern Kansas with over 30,000 landowners

Even though Reck Agri’s business is primarily land brokerage – helping people sell and purchase agricultural real estate, their business is about building relationships with people. Part of the process of helping clients sell or buy is knowing their story—not only what they’re selling or buying, but why. Marc Reck states it’s important for him to understand what the client wants or needs, which means they are privy to personal information. Like all successful relationships, it’s a matter of trust and confidentially, and that’s something Reck has the utmost respect for, and one of their core values.

The Reck Agri team also includes three full-time employees and an associate broker.

You can view properties for sale at www.reckagri.com. If you have never been to an auction before, check out our upcoming auctions and see some property being sold in an engaging and fast-moving environment.

IMG_0321

Zoe’s Nook, now located at 324 Main Street in Sterling, began in 2009 in a Co-Op building in Castle Rock, CO when Nancy Pappas, Lori Hulbert and Karen Hulbert started the business. The shop is still owned by Nancy and Lori today. With a love of antique furniture along with their love of auctions and yard sales, they then decided they wanted to share that love with others.

In 2010 they moved the business from Castle Rock to Wheat Ridge, Colorado inside the Brass Armadillo. A larger space meant they could expand the inventory to offer home décor along with their antiques. In 2014 they moved to their current location here in Sterling, with an even bigger space, they could make some major changes. Before purchasing the building, they did their research and decided that they would be a great fit for Sterling. After a two month remodel the old Moore’s Flower shop quickly became Zoe’s Nook. In November of 2014, they opened their doors just in time for the Christmas Season, and haven’t looked back since. Sterling was a great choice for their business as well as their family.

Zoe’s nook offers several unique products including antiques, both small and large, with home décor accents.  They also have a large variety of scrapbooking and card making supplies. And that’s not all, they also carry a selection of American and Colorado made food products as well as a line of Lor Ann Oils, and a line of lotions called Kiss me in the Garden. The biggest addition to the store is the Children’s section where you can find Melissa and Doug Toys, Usborne Books, Gund Toys and much, much more.

IMG_0177

Premier Farm Credit located at 229 S. 3rd St. in Sterling is a customer- owned cooperative that provides reliable and consistent credit and related services to support the diverse needs of American farmers, ranchers, and rural communities and they have been doing so for over 100 years.  With a long history dating back to 1916 when the Farm Credit System was established to provide a stable and consistent source of financing for America’s farmers and ranchers. Although the farm credit system has changed, and evolved over time, one thing has stayed the same, and that is their commitment to agriculture and rural America. This helps give agricultural producers in our country reliable access to the capital so critical to their ability to produce fiber and fuel for the people of this nation.

Premier Farm Credit offers loans (real state, operating, machinery, equipment, livestock, sprinklers, grain bins, buildings, and farm- related businesses), leases (bins, sprinklers, equipment, buildings, vehicles, etc.) insurance (crop and life) and appraisals (appraisals for loans, fee appraisals and chattel appraisals). Premier Farm Credit knows agriculture, and our area.

Premier Farm Credit reverses the usual flow of funds. Money typically flows out of rural areas and into urban areas. Because of their unique funding structure, where they sell Farm Credit Bonds on the international market, they bring money from large national and international investors into the hands of farmers, rangers and agribusinesses in rural America.

Mike Grauberger was named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in June of 2017.  He has had thirty-plus-year as a successful leader in the Farm Credit System. Mike and his team offer many years of experience and are there to help with any of your financial needs.

Royal Printing Company 7/23/18

IMG_0151

Royal Printing Company has a rich and long history at their location on 211 North Front Street, owned by John and Rose Lehmkuhl.  The doors of Royal Printing Company were first opened by Earl and Royal Franklin in 1954.  Printing was done with lead type produced on incredibly complex machines and lots of labor. That started to change in the 1960s with the adaptation of offset lithography. In 1971, John started working with Earl. The 1970s saw the implementation of technologies - some worked and some didn’t.  Computerized typesetting, process color lithography, xerography, and larger, faster equipment all increased productivity.  The building has had 11 additions to the original site to house new ways to print. This growth fit well with their ideas “we would rather make $1 from a million customers than a million dollars from one customer.” “All customers are equally important!”  This is still Royal Printing’s philosophy today.

The 1980s were times of taking the best innovations (they did buy Tandy and Apple LLC) and incorporating what they could imagine to what they could produce. An exciting time that unfortunately saw the value of unskilled labor disappear.

The 1990s saw Earl wanting to retire. They still invested heavily in technology (what a difference ten years makes when you buy a color copier.) Earl sold to Joel and Michelle Dracon in 1995.  Royal Printing Company had stores in Akron and Julesburg.  Joel and Michelle sold to Rose and John in 1999. Since then, they have explored new ways to serve whatever needs their customers have. Royal Printing Company tries to mix “embrace change or become irrelevant” with “proven paths are.”

Royal Printing produces “everything but stamps and money.” From ink on paper to data in a dropbox, they can do it. They can print all kinds of forms, any large format printing, invitations and announcements, napkins, posters, banners, business cards, and so much more!  Tami Brown, who has been with them for 14 years, and Rachel Shwayder, who has been with them for almost 3 years, take great pride in making their customers feel comfortable and welcome with any job they need printed.  They join Rose and John to make Royal Printing “Where Creativity serves You!”

The Sterling Subway located at 900 W. Main St. came to Sterling nearly 30 years ago, Monte Haman has owned it for 28 of those years. 4 years ago, they purchased the house behind Subway, demolished it, then built the new Subway where the house was, while the old Subway building continued to operate. After the new building was complete, the old one was ripped out and turned into parking for customers. The Sterling Subway offers the typical Subway menu including many healthy options along with a catering service which includes party platters, and large subs. Monte Haman gives credit to Nicole Schott for her years of hard work. Nicole has worked there for 12 years and has been the manager the last 4. He also thanks his wonderful staff for helping run such great store. Please help the Logan County Chamber of Commerce in congratulating Subway as our first Business of the Week!
