Mental & Physical Self-Care

Life is busy enough when you’re a woman business owner. The last thing you want is a list of self-care tasks to add to your to-do list… who’s got the time? That said, the idea of “putting on your own oxygen mask first” makes sense, since your business just ain’t gonna fly without a healthy pilot in the cockpit. All you need is a plan to put these things on auto-pilot… let’s talk about how to do that, so you can get back to flying your plane to a healthy 6 figures.

Growing Your Business through Exports

International business development offers a great opportunity for companies looking to grow their business.  For many companies, exporting can translate into increased sales, gaining international experience, making good use of products that are in excess capacity and/or diversifying their product/service to meet new demand.  Making the leap into international business can be exciting as well as daunting.   Companies need to understand the key benefits to exporting, what needs to be done to take it to the next step, how to go about and plan to move forward, where the opportunities are, the market(s) to consider, methods of accessing these opportunities, and who can assist.  As Provincial Trade Commissioners, it is our goal is to work with companies, whether new or experienced exporters, to navigate through the export process making it more exciting and less daunting.
