Photos special to Fargo INC!
In 2017, we photographed nearly 200 members of the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo business community. Among them were entrepreneurs, artists, pilots, CEOs, software developers, comedians, executive directors, veterans, graduate students and community builders. Join us as we celebrate each and every one of them in Fargo INC!‘s first-ever coffee table book, “Faces of Fargo Business.”
In part five, we feature U.S. Senator John Hoeven of North Dakota, Hospice of the Red River Valley’s Marketing & Communications Specialist Kelly Krenzel, GoodBulb President Tom Enright, NDSU College of Business Dean Scott Beaulier, Executive Director of Homeward Animal Shelter Nukhet Hendricks.
U.S. Senator, State of North Dakota
“I’ve always believed North Dakota companies can compete with anyone, anytime, anywhere. That’s why we are advancing a pro-growth legal, tax and regulatory agenda to help empower entrepreneurs and businesses to create more jobs and grow their companies. As governor, we took the same approach to help our entrepreneurs succeed in an increasingly global marketplace.”

Q: What keeps you up at night?
A: People feeling unloved, alone or forgotten about. I want people to know they matter and that this bright and beautiful community is here for them.
“In 2018, for the first time, GoodBulb will travel to remote villages in Africa and provide families without electricity with solar-powered LED lanterns. We’ll also launch our first generation of LED light bulbs and fixtures. This is the year we begin to disrupt the electrical distribution industry and change the way people have purchased lighting for the past 100 years. We look forward to the challenge. ”
Dean, NDSU College of Business
Q: What’s one thing the local business community could do to help you?
A: Offer suggestions about how we can do better. We sincerely need criticism and harsh feedback. We want to keep getting better, so simply hearing from people on what they’d like us to do, where we’re dropping the ball, and what we’re doing well would be great.

The worst advice I’ve ever gotten
“You’re too strong for a woman. Bring it down a notch.”
“You can’t let your staff see you as soft and vulnerable.”
