"Toronto's Many Faces" 5th edition - a sourcebook for newcomers

Toronto is truly a city of communities. Designed for tourists and for residents, "Toronto's Many Faces" is the one and only guide to the multicultural character of the city, featuring profiles of more than 60 ethnic communities, including local histories, festivals, food, and art. The book identifies each community - where its people come from, why, when, and where they settled in Toronto. The contribution of each community is also traced, with biographical notes on prominent people whose achievements have been extraordinary. Monuments, memorials, theatres, museums, cultural centres, and restaurants are identified, while detailed maps and photographs of festival events help bring the city's varied communities to life.

"Toronto's Many Faces is a guide for tourists, a sourcebook for newcomers, a directory for businesses and "organizations, and a passport for Torontonians to the many cultures that exist at their doorsteps.

Finish to Start!

A new year... a new start. You have some new/old goals, and everything depends on what YOU want! Recently, I've got this inspiration message from Joe Nunziata, which I'm sharing with you below:

"Many people are great starters and poor finishers. Why do so many people get excited in the beginning of their quest only to run out of steam in short period of time?

There are a number of reasons for the fade out. The main one is a lot external excitement and not enough intestinal fortitude. Talk is cheap and we love to talk about what we are going to do.

To finish you must have the internal energy, desire, belief and patience. When you have all of these attributes your chances of making it to the finish line are greatly improved. We all start things and fail to reach our goal. When you begin your next quest be sure you intent to finish what you start."

Here's Your START to FINISH roadmap. Take it and enjoy the journey!

I hope you do, too." ~ Jeffrey Gitomer - Little Black Book of Connections: 6.5 Assets for Networking Your Way to Rich Relationships
