Catching Up

If you haven't been following my Financial Post columns and blogposts, you've been missing some great stories.

Here are a few of them:

In today's column, some great tips and ideas from the day I spent with Peter Thomas, 76-year-old founder of Century 21 Real Estate, and a serial entrepreneur and dealmaker who has much to teach today's hotshots.

"Ten key things to help you succeed in business, according to real estate legend Peter Thomas"

Last week's column looked at another classic Canadian entrepreneur: the late Adam Chowaniec of Ottawa, who passed away in February a week shy of his 65th birthday. Ottawa high-tech mentor, Startup Canada founding chair, longtime CEO of Tundra Semiconductor - and a pioneer in personal computing, no less!

"Adam Chowaniec: The very real legacy of a little-known tech pioneer"

These three Canadians cracked the code on crowdfunding with the "Coolbox": 

"How a group of friends used crowdfunding to create ‘the world’s smartest toolbox’"

(Their $50,000 campaign on Indiegogo has hit $221,000 with more than  a week left to go.)

A Vancouver company dares the big league of mass marketing: A Super Bowl commercial on U.S. TV.
"Pro Draft League’s Super Bowl gamble pays off in unexpected ways"

My Post blogposts are web-only stories I post weekly. They're usually a little less "story" and more prescriptive. And somewhat offbeat. 

Why saying ‘I don’t know’ could inject new life into your business
