business news in context, analysis with attitude

And now, for something completely different…

As we go into the holiday weekend, KC hangs out (virtually) with Aaron Meyer, the Portland, Oregon-based rock violinist who he talked about a few years ago on MNB as an example of competitive differentiation.  Aaron's business model has been upended by the pandemic, and so he's doing all his teaching online, which has required him to adapt his communication skills - something we've all had to do.  Plus, Aaron offers the MNB community a brief preview of a virtual concert that he's going to do next month to benefit musical education programs for underserved communities, a concert that has garnered considerable support in the Pacific Northwest food community.

For more about Aaron's concert, "Harmony in the Vineyard," which will be streamed online on July 26, go to
