We are shaking things up a bit with something not so completely different. Joining the guys this episode is this year's RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Award nominee Sarah Noonan from La Place Rendez-Vous. Sarah gives the goods of the ups and downs of buying a family business, thriving through a pandemic and what it's like to be a woman in business in 2023. Then we have Sarah stick around for a quick chat about how she juggles the work/life balance. Oh, and Darryl sings - it's not harmful... it's just not that pretty. We apologize in advance.
