Changes at Evergreen Wealth Managers
Written by Mike Rue 

The new year has brought exciting new changes to my office and I'm delighted to share how our office has grown. 

Effective January, the name of our practice is changing! Our new name is Evergreen Wealth Managers. We think the new name more accurately reflects our evolving practice. We have a new look, new newsletters, new website, new technical tools and new team members.

I am excited to announce that my daughter Brittany has joined my practice as our Marketing Director and is expecting to finish her credentials for becoming a new advisor very soon. Brittany brings with her a wealth of marketing, sales and planning experience from the real estate business.  Brittany is quite busy with this transition and will be very active in the practice in the coming months. 
Evergreen Wealth Managers is an independent financial services firm specializing in helping individual investors and business owners reach their financial goals. We pride ourselves on personal service, adaptability and close attention to detail. We partner with you to develop and implement a financial plan that reflects your personal and financial goals and values.

Got Hazardous Materials? 
The Wastemobile is coming back to Bothell in 2016 providing six opportunities for residents to drop off hazardous materials for proper disposal.  The event is open to all King County residents and those living within the City limits of Bothell.

18|8 Men's Salons
Featured in Local Newspaper Article
Bothell salon for men features beer on tap and much more...

"The sign in front of this Bothell salon has a dude with pink foam curlers in his hair. What's up with that?  It's not what you think. Inside you won't find a bunch of "Curler Joes" like the guy on the sign. The foam is in the beer, not the curlers.
"We're a male-centric salon," said Ron Barbera, owner of 18/8 Fine Men's Salon at the Village at Beardslee Crossing.

Guys can get a brewski and the beauty works from scalp to toenails.  In addition to styling what's on top, there's lots of tweezing, pedicuring, exfoliating, lathering, waxing and stoning going on.  Stoning as in hot massage stones."  Read the full article here....
