Small Business, Huge Impact

October 15-19 is Small Business Week in Canada and this really is a very special year for me. This year I've partnered with Scotiabank to help shine a light on the important issues and challenges businesses in Canada face today. I've had a lot of experience on both sides of the business table and I'm really looking forward to getting a conversation started with entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders from across the country.

What I Think of Culture in Canada

Culture is merely a reflection of the individuals in a community expressing themselves in groups formed because of creative passion. Without passion and culture, we are simply just passing through. And who wants to live a life that dull and grey? We are shaped by our own choices and made better when our culture allows us to make them freely and with artistic expression and be better as a result.
