https://youtu.be/Wq0cBwlpsK8 This isn't going to sound nice, but I don't feel bad. Sure there are employees that will take a hit but these billion dollar companies will feel it the most, and if they have any integrity they'll properly compensate their employees even while they struggle.

Clara Belle

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_LGD-xiiHM It was an absolute honour and privilege to have the opportunity to interview Clara Belle. After over 5 years on air with Exploring Mind and Body, and the handful of Supporting Local video interviews I’ve done, Clare Bella is easily one of the most interesting guests I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing. At 94 years old, Clara Belle has stories we don’t hear any more. A perspective that needs to be cherished and not forgotten about. Her name is as be...

Carstairs Flower Shop Sparkling Dahlia

Carstairs Flower Shop Sparkling Dahlia
I feel it's so important to support local which is why I brought on Erin Braybrook who is the owner of the Carstairs Flower Shop Sparkling Dahlia.
