My talented partner Nicole Baute has just relaunched the webpage for her communications business, with brand new services that are designed for entrepreneurs, SMEs and non-profits who want to learn how to write more effectively and tell compelling stories about themselves and their businesses.

She's also now offering affordable and practical media training (she's a former Toronto Star reporter). Check it out, if you're interested!

Welcome to Vancouver real estate! It was fun to do this story, and meeting the main character, who welcomed me into her (very large) house in West Vancouver. Chinese investment is an intriguing social phenomenon on the West Coast, and it was good to get a chance to flesh out the topic with my esteemed colleague Brent Jang.
