Sorry for the late post but it’s been another week of travel. This week, I went to Yellowknife and Hay River in the North West Territories for the first time and met some great people who have significant wealth without being pretentious or materialistic. I finished the week in Toronto working with some fun people at Sherritt International and getting a chance to meet some bloggers face to face: Donna McCaw, Dean Paley and Glenn Cooke
