October 2, 2017 Newsletter

Its October!! It’s a time to gear up in our planning, attend trade shows and try to keep up with our busy work and family schedules! But it can also be that wonderful time of year to savour the spectacular show of Fall colours, attend some of the many fairs and festivals, warm up in our cozy sweaters and perhaps take the time to check out nearby wineries with good friends and loved ones. We hope you will find that balance and celebrate this wonderful season! In this issue, you will learn about some great upcoming socials, and workshops to help your business grow, we hope to see you soon!

In friendship and appreciation,


Gaby & Josie
