If you enjoyed episode one of In Between the Wines, you won’t want to miss episode two! In episode two, I sit down with the Cooke’s who own Busted Oak Cellars. The owners and I focus on what it takes to open not only just a winery, but your own business. Sherrie and Patrick will share their story of tenacity, hard work, and risk taking, which paid off. As a listener, you’ll enjoy hearing about their path and what goes into operating a successful winery. The Cooke’s and I will also touch on what it takes to be an outstanding and dependable boss to younger employees and what it takes to work with employees that have conflicting schedules, like college courses.
Gaining information from business owners that have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly is so important to young entrepreneurs. I have high hopes that this podcast will be a great starting point for those that have interests in the beginning stages of opening a business. The Cooke’s also go into detail on their thoughts behind the construction of building their winery and certain important aspects they thought about when designing it. Busted Oak Cellars also offers airbnb and venue style options. We have the opportunity to find out what their thoughts behind including those were as well. Stay tuned for episode two of In Between The Wines.
