HaliBlab

By Anita Kirkbride
HaliBlab is a show for small businesses in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'll talk
to businesses you may be watching and some you haven't heard of yet. I love to hear stories of local businesses--how they started and where they're going--and of course, how they're leveraging social media.
