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 seven, we feature uCodeGirl Founder & CEO Betty Gronneberg, capital Credit Union Mortgage Loan Officer & Business Development Specialist Eric Miller, Haley’s Hope Dyslexia Specialist Kari Bucholz, Unseen Executive Director Than Baardson, Protosthetics President & CFO Josh Teigen, and AdShark Marketing CEO Rick Berg.

What I’d give a TED Talk on
“Why fit in when you were born to stand out? Unlock your potential and engineer your world.”
Mortgage Loan Officer & Business Development Specialist, Capital Credit Union
Q: What would you give a TED Talk on?
A: I would talk about the importance of financial wellness. Most people don’t know or have been given some bad advice on their finances, and in 15 minutes of talking, we can change their lives.
Dyslexia Specialist, Haley’s Hope
Q: What do you want the local business community to know about you?
A: That dyslexia is real and Haley’s Hope is here to help ALL individuals through the challenges it creates. There is no reason to not look into whether dyslexia could be the reason for children’s or adults’ struggles with reading and writing. We are here to help.
Executive Director, Unseen
“We’ve talked to others who had a similar idea (to Unseen) but never went with it. I think it’s like travel. A lot of people can talk about travel, but the only ones who travel are those who do.”
President & CFO, Protosthetics
Q: What 2017 accomplishment are you most proud of?
A: Winning Entrepreneur of the Year at the ChamberChoice Awards.
CEO, AdShark Marketing
“Letting go and not being involved in every facet of our business is one of the things I’ve been struggling with. I think this is a common issue among business owners, but it’s absolutely necessary if we’re going to continue to grow as fast as we are. Recently I’ve started to learn this strange idea of giving up control and it feels good thus far. But I still have a long way to go.”
