Hey there! I’m Laurie. Or at least that’s half of my face. I live near Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia and you’ve stumbled upon my blog!

Note that I am not Laurie McAllister (I’m a MAC, with a strong A!). I haven’t a musical bone in my body. Also, I’m a dude.

I made my fortune in tech stocks in the late 90’s, so you can bet I’ve been monitoring the .com of my own name for years. When it came available in 2014 I snapped it up and started a head-first dive into blogging.

Since money isn’t an object for me at this stage of my life, and since small businesses in Nova Scotia appear in desparate need of a helping hand when it comes to small-scale marketing (even the small-scale stuff ain’t cheap!), I thought why not put my energy into helping small local (and occasionally not-so-local) businesses thrive by writing about them.

And so we have this very blog. Stay tuned for updates!
