Promoting your new business can be done in many ways depending on your business or service. Ideally you want to leave your potential client with a memorable and lasting reminder of who you are and what you do. Handing out something useful or unique at tradeshows can leave an impression, but make sure it is something that will be used and not tossed into a drawer or the garbage. A promotional distributor can help you with those choices. Another way that costs little more than your time is to get out to networking meetings and events where you...read more
Over the last number of years, the Internet has altered the way we do business. We no longer rely on meeting face-to-face, or staying up late to phone someone halfway around the world; we can now connect with anyone at any time using Internet-based technology. This opens up our businesses to global possibilities without the cost of long distance phone calls, travel expenses, and shipping. Using a variety of applications, we can easily communicate with others about our products and services. We are able to find new distribution channels and...read more
Recipe for Success by Lynda Walter, Registered Holistic Nutritionist This salad is a nutritious combination of thinly sliced dark leafy greens, carrots, crunchy almonds and chicken.

A great way to thinly slice the greens is to stack them on top of each other and roll them tightly then cutting across the rolled leaves with a sharp knife producing fine ribbons. This technique is called “chiffonade.” This recipe provides...read more

This magazine was, at one time, just an idea, and now it is a format for sharing knowledge, experience and inspiration. In helping new entrepreneurs assess business opportunities, I advise a close look at four things. Is the business...read more
Know your job description, love what you do and know why you do it. If you had told me a few years ago that I would be running a property restoration company with my husband, I would have laughed—right in your face! I have learned a lot from being married to a man who has been in the construction industry for more than half of his life. At the beginning, I just used to smile and nod, ohing and ahing at the appropriate breaks in conversation, but now that I am more and more involved in the industry, I actually find myself caring. (Not that I...read more
Every now and then throughout our lives, new opportunities present themselves: opportunities to make new friends, build relationships, and to grow. In business, new opportunities often present themselves in a similar way, such as opportunities that allow us to start a new business, develop new skills, and grow our companies. While some (people and businesses) will only seize opportunities that benefit themselves, often there is, or could be, a mutual benefit for both parties in the relationship, personal, business or otherwise, and most of...read more
At WPT, we inspire, support, elevate and empower women in technology. Stepping back, we see that women and technology are slices of larger pies: diversity and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). People of all genders, races, backgrounds, abilities, ages and means are needed in STEM to ensure that our local and national economies remain viable. At this month’s Pub Night in Waterloo, Ontario, we welcome two groups who absolutely embrace diversity and who will share their stories: – Stephanie Rozek (@srozek, @AvocadoDog) and...read more
