What's New!

What do restaurants, retailers, contractors, and financial services have in common? They are all businesses that will be visited by business leaders and civic leaders during Fernie’s first business walk on June 13, 2018. Volunteer “walkers” will connect face-to-face with business operators in an informal casual way to determine the current state of business in Fernie and identify areas for improvement.

Summer, the time of year that networking comes to you. Community events are in abundance and opportunities to introduce yourself are everywhere. Wednesday Night Socials, The Valley Social Co. patio, or out and about on Second Ave never be afraid to say hello. As for a more formal setting, here are a few tips to consider while attending networking events hosted by our local businesses and the Fernie Chamber.

The Rural Development Institute State of the Basin reports on four pillars environment, economy, culture, and society. Drawing on federal, provincial, regional, and local resources, RDI compiles a comprehensive look at communities in the Basin (Columbia-Basin-Boundary Region). I spent an afternoon reading this document. I found Fernie often at the top or bottom of scales. It rarely shows up in the middle. The report points to how our success as a community is also the cause of our biggest challenges. In the end, we see that Fernie has a great foundation on which to build.

It happens to all of us, we have grand plans to do a renovation, re-merchandise the shop, start a business blog or whatever new and exciting thing you’ve waited until the New Year’s to declare.  Then obstacles get in the way and our goals get caste aside in pursuit of the “more important” things that have fallen into our laps. We struggle to gather the strength and effort of making time for our goals and before you know it’s time for another New Year’s declaration.
So how do we overcome our obstacles and put our goals back on the top shelf?
