Northern Lights School Division has a great time building a library!

by Lindsay Sali - Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 3:56pm

Last Saturday we had the pleasure of helping the students of the Northern Lights School Division build their library with the support of AREVA. Each student was allowed to pick out a book for their own personal library and the rest went to filling out their school library.

Robert Herjavec of Shark Tank and previously of Dragons' Den at McNally Robinson

by Events Winnipeg - Tuesday, Apr 30, 2013 at 2:18pm

This Thursday, May 2 at 7:30 we are so very excited to welcome Robert Herjavec to the store. This event is co-presented by our friends at HarperCollins Canada and CBC Manitoba. Marcy Markusa of Information Radio 89.3 FM/990 AM will be on hand to host.

In his bestselling business book Driven: How to Succeed in Business and in Life, Robert Herjavec, the former co-star of CBC TV's Dragons' Den and current co-star of ABC TV's Shark Tank, urged his readers to take risks, take control of their lives, and stay true to their own visions. Now, in this inspirational follow-up, Herjavec wants to push his readers even further towards greatness.

Whether you are seeking to build the next big company in communications technology, to become the most respected teacher in your educational system, or to make a lasting impact as an artist in your field, the most important decision you can make, according to Herjavec, is to reject mediocrity. In the long run, "good enough" is never good enough, whether in our personal lives or in our careers.

Drawing on anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of celebrity friends such as Oprah, Georges St-Pierre and Celine Dion, Herjavec delivers valuable life lessons that promise to guide readers to greater happiness and success.
