My very first introduction to Stephanie Hoogveld was through our mutual friend (and previous podcast guest!) Kristen Dyck. It just so happens that Stephanie and I then went on to be in the same ATBx cohort, advancing our small businesses together. As a fan of colourful and vibrant art, Stephanie’s work is right up my […]
I first met Amber by attending one of her Barre Body Studio classes – I feared Amber a little bit. Her classes were good, but my buns would be sore for DAYS.

Way back when my husband and I backpacked Southeast Asia in 2014, I vividly remember this Australian family that we kept running into as we travelled throughout Vietnam (most travellers go a similar route).
