My work has taken me to some really interesting and fun places up North and this week, was no exception. I got to spend the week at the Ekati Diamond Mines helping some of the employees with financial education. My host Mark was great, the accommodation (base camp) was simple but clean and I got to meet some really great people. I have to say, I have never experienced -50 degrees Celsius with a wind chill until this week. I look forward to going back when it’s a lot warmer.

- On Tuesday Sarah delved into Finances and Kids – Leading by Example.
