Calm, cool and collected perfectly describe Chef Alex Figura, 30, Executive Chef of Lower48 Kitchen. This mod yet unpretentious restaurant hit the ballpark neighborhood eight months ago and has been delighting its customers ever since with an innovative and constantly evolving menu. Having worked in fast-paced white tablecloth restaurants in NYC and beyond, Chef Alex survived the pressure cooker that is the Big Apple and escaped to Colorado three years ago without a single tattoo or chip on his shoulder. I sat down with Chef Alex to get a sneak peek into this young chef’s brain. I figured if this same mind can create lamb bacon with squid ink vinaigrette, surely there are also some other fun nuggets inside that noggin. By Laura Cook Newman

This is the year the last of the Baby Boomer generation turns 50, and in the coming years we’ll see more and more Boomers retire and sell off their businesses. In fact, from the end of 2012 through 2013, Boomer retirement was the number one reason why businesses were sold in the U.S. According to the most recent Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index, more than half of business owners say the best time to sell their business is in the next one to 10 years. Will they be ready? By Russell White

Some 50 years ago, Bob James, a great friend and management trainer, gave me this morsel of wisdom: “Help each person see themselves in light of a strength of which they are unaware or uncertain, related to the person they dream of becoming.”We can only do this if we know people well and we actively assist them in achieving their goals. If we deliver, they become believers in us. Regardless of fortunes, you will enjoy the richness of life and the people in it. By Pat Wiesner
