In case you hadn’t spotted it, there’s a pandemic going on right now. Small businesses the world over are struggling to keep going through the shit storm that this virus has brought with it. So, if I can share a few of my favourite small businesses in and around the Fraser Valley with you right now, who knows? Maybe you might find a business you can support, or refer to someone else.
This is a fairly short list as I’ve only had a few responses back so far, but if you’d like your business to be added to the list, then do get in touch via email with a little bit of blurb about who you are, what you do and what your current offerings. Also, please do send a little headshot and a logo if you have one. My email is email@example.com.
Please do support these local businesses if you’re able to! And thank you!
P.S. I totally pinched this idea off the awesome Megan from Rogue Bookkeeping. But she knows. And I’ve included her on the list, so we’re even 😉
P.P.S. By the way, if you’re a local business looking for local networking groups, I’ve set one up on Facebook! It’s for the gals only (sorry boys!) and it’s a place to support one another as business owners, not to sell our wares to one another. It’s called ‘Business, Bitches!’ and it’d be great to have some more amazing business owners join us! You can request to join by hitting the button below!

We are also available 100% online and have guidelines for how to implement an online system for clients who would normally be more paper-based.
The Book Man
The Book Man is a family-owned and operated chain of two bookstores in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. Almost half a million beautifully organized books await you in an environment that embraces the reader. Gently used and new, their stock is carefully curated, but they can also do special orders for new books to your hearts’ content. Contact them with your requests through their website.
I am a professional voice over artist! My clear, British tone is most often called upon for explainer videos, eLearning, phone systems and corporate videos. But I also love character work and my versatility has been let loose in commercials, film, radio and animation. I offer a quick turnaround from my own acoustically-treated, professional sound booth with online delivery.

I am accepting photography bookings.
Here’s the important stuff:
- I’ll only be booking shoots for individuals and small groups of 2-6 people (animals also welcome!).
- Shoots will predominantly be taking place outdoors so that physical distancing of 6 feet/2 metres can be maintained, however, I will consider indoor shoots if physical distancing can be maintained.
- I will be using best hygiene practices (i.e. one shoot per day so I can travel from home and return home after to ensure washing of hands) and expect you to do the same!
- You will be asked to complete a declaration in the 24 hours prior to your shoot confirming your fitness to attend the shoot. If there are any concerns about your health at all, please don’t be offended if I request a postponement. The shoot will happen and your booking fee will be transferred to a new date to be agreed upon. I would just rather you’re healthy for it!
Rest assured, your health and safety is the most important thing to me, closely followed by my own. I am putting these actions in place for those reasons alone. If you feel uncomfortable with any of this, it’s ok to wait and book your shoot at a later date. I totally get it!
If you have any other questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
