What I Learned Walking Away from a Big Job

A couple of weeks ago, I was offered the chance to shoot quite a big job. I was excited initially. They wanted to pay me well, and the shoot was going to involve quite a lot of work. But work that I enjoy! And when you're freelance, getting offered a job is always exciting.

Amanda Chapman

A benefit of running a business in the area where you were raised is having an intimate bond with the people around you. They’re not just your clients; they’re your friends and neighbours, too. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Perhaps Amanda Chapman, raised in Muskoka, opened a law practise in Greater Simcoe Region because she’s eager to give back to the community that made her who she is today. In truth, it’s partially both.

The Global Financial Industry

Fraud and data theft is, unsurprisingly a significant headache for organizations, and particularly so for banks and insurance companies. Since 2005, there have been over 10 billion data records compromised in 8,000 breaches 1 in the USA alone, that’s the equivalent of 1-2 a day. While a major positive for many consumers and organizations around the world, the Internet has also created opportunities for fraudsters and data thieves, who work hard to steal from financial institutions.

How Tru Colors Brewing is Drastically Reducing Gang Violence

It was a few days before Christmas 2015, and George Taylor could not believe what he was reading. Shane Simpson, a 16-year-old in Wilmington, North Carolina, had been killed in a gang-related drive-by shooting. Taylor didn’t even know his city had gangs, and he was so shocked and saddened by the killing that he vowed to do what countless others have tried to do with limited or no success: end gang violence in his community.

St. Jacobs Furnishing

As we meander past an amazing number of stalls featuring fresh produce, grass fed meat and handmade crafts on a busy Thursday afternoon at the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market, I cannot help but feel a bit like royalty. Mennonite royalty. (A contradiction in terms, to be sure, since historically Mennonites rejected any formal connections to their magisterial rulers. But I digress.) Everywhere we go, folks either wave, call out hello, or emerge from behind their stalls to strike up a conversation.

Rug and Weave

‘Everything about this place is gorgeous,’ I remark. Then I whisper, only to myself, with a smile: ‘I’m pretty sure I’d live here if you’d let me.’ I step further into the space and revel in the details. The coarse brick walls and crude wood-slat ceiling – painted a brilliant white in defiance of their industrial past. The ample windows and exposed ductwork adding to the space’s condo chic aesthetic.
