What positive lessons have you learned during the recession? You have to be honest and trustworthy, but I didn’t just learn that through the recession, I have always been honest and trustworthy, otherwise I would not have stayed in business for as long as I have.

What strategy do you use to hire good people? I like to find employees that aren’t just looking for a paycheck. I hire people that love what they do, care about others and are a team player.

TA’s Specialties will have its grand opening celebration Saturday, Dec. 16. KRIM will do a live remote from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and there will be barbecue and free giveaways.
