The June Round-up

Wow, June has been an exciting month around here so far. We had our first workshop and first market of the year! We thought we would provide a re-cap on both events as well as throw in some local lovin' in between. If you'd like to settle in for a run through of our "workin' Moms weekend" between Creston and Cranbrook, we've got the goods here.  Workshop - Creston, BC Did you know that we host workshops in the Kootenays and Calgary for small business owners and entrepreneurs?
