How gratifying a feeling it is to point to Fargo and say “Here is a city that people can move to and start a successful business.” Carter and Melissa Broer, who hail from an exotic land to the east called Wisconsin, did just that when they established Window World of Fargo in 2017.

Shopping for jewelry can be daunting. Few of us could say very much about precious metals and stones just by looking at them, so we must rely on jewelers’ expertise in the matter. The occasions for which we buy jewelry may be the most special of our lives, so leaving things to chance simply will not do.

The Anderson brothers not only fell in love with skiing when they first tried it out in the 1970s, but wanted to share that newfound passion as well. The entrepreneurs thus found an conveniently placed steep slope just 90 minutes southeast of Fargo in Kensington, MN, and opened Andes Tower Hills. Now nearly four decades later their wish has been fulfilled: a world-class ski resort where anyone from the tri-state area can go to shred to their hearts’ content.
