Take It Outside! Moncton’s Outdoor Rink Locations


Baby it’s cold outside! Lucky are Monctonians to live in an area with no shortage of outdoor fun options- for kids and grown-ups alike.

This year, the City Of Moncton has increased the number of outdoor rink locations for your skating pleasure & I have to admit, it puts a smile on my face to see kids outside on the ice.  I learned to skate on a pond in Moncton and there is truly nothing like an afternoon spent on an outdoor rink. So, get your kids off the couch and on the ice… they’ll thank you for it & you’ll probably enjoy it as much as they do.

Moncton Christmas Tree PickUp: At Your Door!

Happy New Year!  Behind resolutions, goals and diets, some of us still have our big beautiful green buddies standing in our living rooms. OK… so maybe they’re not quite as big or green as they once were.  The great news is that, in this case, procrastination has paid off!  Next week, there will be Christmas tree pickup at your door!  According to the City Of Moncton website

“There is free drop-off at the Westmorland-Albert Solid Waste Corporation beginning December 27.   Info: 877-1040” OR “Residents… may set them out at the curb on their regular garbage pick-up night during the week of January 9 to 13, 2012 only. Info: 859-2643.”

Perfect! I have to admit, my tree is still standing. Is yours?



The Secret To My Success

When I started Martell Home Builders, nearly 5 years ago, I got some solid advice from my old brother Dan. “Go out and find people who’ve already accomplished what you’re trying to do, and ask them for advice”, he said “Not only will you learn faster, you can usually avoid making the same mistakes they have”.

That specific advice lead me on a journey of self learning and many trips across north america. In the first year alone, I travelled to PEI, Halifax, Toronto, even Calgary so I could meet and get advice from some of the top home builders and real estate marketing experts in the industry.

It’s because I know the power of great advice, that I’m so excited for the launch of Dan’s new company: Clarity. If you’re a business person living in, or around Moncton, you won’t want to miss this event. He’s got over 400+ of the world best entrepreneurs available for calls through Clarity. He certainly can explain things better than me .. but you’ll need to be at the event to get access.  (ex: Here’s my profile ) Launch, Thursday, January 5th @ 5pm, Capitol Theatre, 811 Main St, Moncton, NB

I hope you make it. Sometimes a simple 10 minute phone call with the right person can change your life forever.
