    Ep. 4 – Dylan McCansh

    Let’s talk about resilience, rent or buy, nourishing female relationships and being an extroverted introvert. On another recent lightning-quick trip to Vancouver (to see Elton John!), I had a chance to sit down with real estate dynamo and fellow yogi, Dylan McCansh.

    City Girl Connects: How Going to a Coworking Space Saved My Sanity

    It’s #EntrepreneursDay and Global Entrepreneurs’ Week! I still don’t know that I would classify myself as such, but I am surrounded by some amazing female entrepreneurs that inspire and motivate me every day. Meredith Garritsen at Hervana is one of those inspirations, and not only is she good people, she has the dubious honour of having helped me save my sanity the week before we moved to Victoria. (She’s also given a great prize for the contest at the end of this post!)
