Working together

by Linda Wegner on 11/14/17

A recent LinkedIn posting referred to the need for teamwork in a business setting and that got me thinking. In the days when my company was in full operation, I hired a number of sub-contractors. Although I was a well respected writer and researcher, there were contracts I could never have bid on based on those strengths alone. I sought out others with the skills I lacked.

Someone to care

by Linda Wegner on 11/06/17

I’ve taken up bus riding these past weeks and frankly the less I have to drive now, the better.

A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. The photos above are courtesy of Sean Percy, outdoor enthusiast and scuba diver.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
