Episodes

Episode 1

Melissa was a real estate agent, working all the time. Nights, weekends, family time.  A tough gig when you have three kids. So, she quit.  And now she and husband Greg run Durham Custom Wood Décor in Oshawa, which creates beautiful signs, trays, tables – you name it.  They can hardly keep up with business. Wait to you find out where they got the idea and why quitting for one of them was so traumatic. **Also available in 4K with a compatible receiver and TV**

Episode 2

Alison, Noel, Phoebe and James are a family who put it all the line. They sold everything to live a dream of owning a restaurant and an art gallery.  What’s interesting is that they combined the two dreams into one place. Now they own the Food and Art Café in Whitby, which is affectionately known as the FART Café. They live close by.  Maybe too close by.  You’ll see…  And find out how Alison learned to read the fine print, the hard way. **Also available in 4K with a compatible receiver and TV**
