How to Win @ Social Media Advertising

Social networks, particularly Facebook, have pulled what might be the greatest bait-and-switch in recent history. They lured hundreds of millions of people, and tens of thousands of businesses, onto their platforms with one set of rules. Then, without warning, the rules changed.

It's hard to imagine a better region than Colorado's Front Range for any cyclist to cut his or her teeth. The cycling communities there are deeper than anywhere in the country, maybe the world. So after 11 years in Denver and 8 years in Boulder, cyclist/entrepreneur Juan Alberto DelaRoca had a good idea bout what he wanted in a place to live, "All those years taught me that I would have to be somewhere pretty cyclist-friendly, just as a lifestyle requirement for myself."

At Home with Julie

Does a house make a home? What is that elusive quality that makes a space feel like home? You know it as soon as you walk in the door: your shoulders come down, you breathe out a gentle sigh, kick off your shoes, and sink in. The sense of setting everything down, all of the day’s work and burdens, along with your briefcase and groceries. The place that is uniquely you, your own little habitat, your haven. Perhaps home means family to you, or it may be your fortress of solitude; in any case, finding a place to create your space is often an emotional journey.

In 2019, online dating will celebrate its 24th birthday. That means that the medium, which made its debut with Match.com in 1995, may have at this point resulted in matches whose offspring are now old enough to be looking for significant others online. What once was a taboo subject in its early stages now has become everyday conversation fodder that elicits barely a blink of surprise. After all, who among us doesn’t have a set of coupled-off friends (or two, or three, or more) who met online – if not a married one?

A Room at the Inn

[inn]space Executive Offices & Business Centre is a one-of-a-kind, co-working space in Greater Simcoe Region. Though the area—chiefly Northern Barrie, Oro-Medonte, and Midland—has been introduced to the concept before, there’s a sheen of refinement throughout this property. “The amenities, technology, and decor,” according to the site’s Community Manager, “were all chosen with a professional executive in mind.” It provides much more than four walls, a roof, and a desk—this is an environment that fosters growth and creativity. “Our space is your space. Your goals are our goals.”
