Saltgrass becomes the “Top-grass”

Friday, March 11th, 2011
Congratulations to Marilyn Senador!
For taking nursing and caregiving to a whole new level, Marilyn has recently been selected for BIV’s Forty under 40. Ten years ago, Marilyn was a typical registered nurse at the Vancouver General Hospital. While working in the neuroscience department, she realized that many patients required extensive care during their time in the hospital and even after. This revelation motivated her to establish Saltgrass Health Inc., a healthcare company that focuses on bringing more intensive and personal care to individuals who need it and their families. Her efforts allowed her to establish two brain injury group homes: Jasper House and Thornhill House. So congratulations again, Marilyn! Keep up the good work!

Marketing Expenses can be written off from a tax perspective

Monday, October 25th, 2010
In today’s high-tech, global, business environment, the potential for growth and exposure is greater than ever before, and as I’ve mentioned, marketing is key to taking advantage of this potential.

Simply put, marketing can provide you with the tools that will help you maintain your company’s presence and keep it competitive.

Websites, for example, have become one of these essential tools. Your company’s website, however, needs to be more than just a URL address and a phone number. It has to be attractive, informative and easy to use. After all, in business as in life, first impressions are everything, and if you want your business to succeed, you need to put your best face forward.

Branding is another big one. We live in a branded world, and like it or not, everyone from Nike to your local charity has realized the importance of having a clean, consistent brand image. Your brand is your company’s identity, and as with websites, that image needs to convey confidence and competence.

If developed well, marketing strategies will attract attention to, and generate buzz about, your company and your services, and this, of course, means an increase in revenue. It is important, however, to always remember the old business adage “you have to spend money to make money.” Beautifully designed websites and strong, effective branding campaigns are investments, and like all investments, they will cost you money. The thing that many businesses don’t realize is that marketing can be claimed as a business expense.

Did I just blow your mind?

It’s absolutely true. Marketing expenses can be fully written off from a tax perspective, which means your company should monitor revenues to see what percentage can be reasonably used for this purpose.

According to Robert Elm BComm, MBA, CA, CPA (Illinois), CIP, PFP of Elm and Associates, “the Canada Revenue Agency has certain restrictions on the deduction of advertising in periodicals, as well as using a wrapping professional service. The complete wording can be read at the CRA web site at“.

So, keep marketing at the top of your financials all the time and remember to view it for what it really is: a way to make more money.

The One-Week Job Project – Now in Vancouver!

What: One Week Job Street Team – Meet the creator, Sean Aiken, of the One-Week Job Project
Where: Downtown Vancouver, B.C.  Starting in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery, 750 Hornby St. and moving around the core.
When: Thursday, July 29, 2010, 11am – 1pm.

Are you confused about your career?  Have you been left feeling unfulfilled by your current job?  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work doing something you really love?

Feel like a movie star as we interview YOU about your passion, enter to win Sean Aiken’s book The One Week Job Project, and most importantly, find out how YOU can GET PAID TO FIND YOUR PASSION!

The One-Week Job Project is taking you to the streets – literally.  On Thursday, July 29, 2010, we’ll be blasting downtown Vancouver with our message: that it’s never too late to find your passion!

Meet the man who’s done it all: Sean Aiken, author of The One-Week Job Project and an everyday-adventurer who has worked as a Bungee Jump Instructor, Professional Photographer, Firefighter, Preschool Teacher – and everything in between. Also talk to a current One Week Job Program Participant Amanda Lowe about her mini  8-week experience.

“This is an amazing opportunity to explore jobs I had always thought of trying, but had never had the time or money to discover on my own.  I’m only in the first month of my personal One Week Job journey, but I’ve already learned so much about myself.”
– Amanda Lowe, Inaugural OWJ Program Participant

About Sean Aiken and the One-Week Job Project –

What: Between Feb 2007 and March 2008, Sean Aiken completed an epic journey around North America, working 52 jobs in 52 weeks.

Why: When Sean graduated from college, he didn’t know what he wanted to do for a career (or what he wanted to do with his life!).  But instead of taking the first job that came along, he found a unique way of figuring it out: The One Week Job Project.

How it worked: Anyone, anywhere, could offer Sean a job for one week, and contact him through the website.  He tried everything: Bungee Instructor, Dairy Farmer, Advertising Executive, Baker, Stock Trader, Firefighter, and more. Wherever he could find work, he’d hitch a ride there, find a couch to crash on, and immerse himself in whatever profession was at hand.

Thousands of people began following his journey, looking to him for inspiration in their own lives. The media covered the story extensively: The New York Times, Rachael Ray Show, Good Morning America, CNN, 20/20, CBC Newsworld, FOX News and countless others.

Sean realized he hadn’t started on his own journey. He’d started a movement.  Now at the end of his journey, it’s time to share the complete story and the lessons learned along the way.

Sean has since written a book, The One-Week Job Project, is working on a film about his experience, and has started the One Week Job Program.

About The One Week Job Program

The One-Week Job Program is designed to provide others the opportunity to participate in a similar experience to Sean’s original journey.

The first semester of the program is currently taking place, with winners from Canada and the United States.  The three “jobbers” of the inaugural semester will work 8 different One Week Job’s of their choosing, and will receive a $3000 grant towards their travel expenses.

Inaugural Participant Amanda Lowe is spending one of her jobs with Reframe Marketing, a strategic planning and business marketing company based in Vancouver.  This event is her first event-planning project, and she’s looking forward to sharing the program with you!
