Debbie Battler, D E Consulting

I have been in the Direct Marketing business for over 15 years in Vancouver. I moved back to Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island 4 years ago to be closer to my family. I am passionate about helping my clients get better results for their websites on the internet. I presume we all want more sales and customers with more website traffic. When people search for you or your targeted keywords on Google do you appear? I work to ensure potential customers find you, which should be a top priority for businesses today.  "SEO is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results." It is an integral addition to any digital marketing strategy. Achieving visibility and rankings is not easy, but it can be done. We help our clients succeed with more traffic, and proven results.

Amanda Christie, Simply Nourishing

After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease and hypothyroidism in 2013 I was told that diet made no difference to my health. Using the Autoimmune Protocol I was able to regain my health. This lead me to study Holistic Nutrition and then to become a Certified Autoimmune Paleo Coach in 2018. I believe vibrant health is possible for everyone. That by focusing on whole, nutrient dense food it is possible to regain abundant energy and increase mental clarity. Together we will explore the root cause of your health complaints and develop a plan to bring you back to health. Nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated. I can help you simplify it.

Scott Telford, Good Old Days

Hi, my name is Scott. In 2014, my beautiful wife Ashlynn (aka handy assistant) along with our 3 kids (aka handyman and handy girls in training) moved to Duncan, BC. Surrounded by our wonderful extended family and this majestic piece of paradise, we are blessed to call the Cowichan Valley home!

With a history of renovating houses, experience in roofing, landscaping and new construction the natural course was to putter at handyman work. Puttering led to quitting my day job and Good Old Days Handyman Services was born. Wonderful clients kept my schedule full with repeat business and referrals of friends and neighbors and I soon couldn’t keep up with the workload. Good Old Days Handyman continued to grow. Now, this locally owned and operated company has a team of 4 handymen and my beautiful wife Ashlynn in the office. Thank you Cowichan Valley
