It’s tradition to take a moment to reflect on the past year when a new year begins. Cynics may consider January 1 to be an arbitrary marker, but we’re grateful for any chance to pause and do some self-reflecting.
Some of the people on our staff are entrepreneurs themselves; some, former entrepreneurs who take what they learned from being in business to help you; and some, like me (my bio is below, do read it, as I worked hard on it), bring other skills to the team. One thing that we all have in common, though, is the drive to be better—to make ourselves better; to make Business Link better; to make you and your small business better. Here’s a run-down of some of the thoughts we’ve had about how we can do that.
As always, we look forward to hearing from you. Our contact information is below.
Happy New Year and here’s to a great 2019!

Rebecca Calder is Business Link's Marketing Coordinator. Rebecca likes bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica, though while completing her MA in Communications and Technology at the University of Alberta, she wrote two papers on Star Trek. Rebecca's interesting take on communications stems in part from her background in education. She worked as a substitute teacher for two years after completing her BEd, then realised that the classroom is not the optimal environment for an introvert. Today, she relishes the power she holds sitting behind a computer, able to talk with people all over the world. For now, she's using that power for good at her role in Business Link.
