I have no words! None! The ad and contest you put together for my Production Event is beautiful.
Thank you for your incredible kindness, support, generosity, and sincere appreciation of the work. Your time and effort spent on this comes with much gratitude. The whole thing is quite smashing! You have certainly built something very special there and should be incredibly proud. The recognition and value in what you do and what you have accomplished so far is quite exceptional I must say. In other words you're a force and I have not doubt our business relationship going forward will grow from here.
Mass hug to you Anne Marie.

I would like to thank you and your team for your patience and hard work on helping promote our new business, The Artisans Garden. We met with Anne earlier in the year and she really helped me with ideas on how to get our business exposure up. The amazing article you wrote in May was a real kick off for our second season, We learned that people from all over the island had heard about us through your beautiful magazine. I would highly recommend small businesses advertise in GoWestShore. Anne, Patricia and Gwen, you have each been a positive and amazingly patient, and professional team to work with. It is easy for small business to think its impossible to afford such advertising, however between the online presence, the beautiful magazine, and social media you helped take our business to another level. I'm so glad I broke the barrier of "I can't afford it" as it honestly has been the best money spent so far on advertising. Thank You and I look forward to another season.

Camosun Culinary Arts is excited and proud to contribute to this West Shore showcase through our monthly food column. As an education facility that teaches cooks and future culinarians across the food realm, we see the growth and vibrancy that is happening in this rapidly expanding community.
The West Shore provides many of our students a place to live, learn, work and play; therefore, it makes perfect sense to have our successes and insights shared through this vibrant new publication.
We have received many wonderful comments and reviews from a wide range of readers and everyone agrees that GoWestShore is long overdue in the region and moving forward provides an outstanding platform to share images and stories of people and businesses in the area.
I have no hesitation in recommending the publication based on the professionalism, knowledge and experience demonstrated and delivered at every opportunity by the Anne Marie and Gwen along with the rest of the excellent team.
