Future Thinkers Mike Gilliland and Euvie Ivanova are entrepreneurs, futurists, strategists, designers, podcasters, blockchain enthusiasts focused on evolving technology, society, and consciousness to create a more sustainable future for all of humanity.

Their Future Thinkers Smart Village is a regenerative living lab and education center located in the beautiful Wells Gray country, BC, Canada. The living lab will work to prototype innovations in the areas of affordable housing, permaculture and food production, health & wellness, regenerative business and economy, decentralized technology, community organization, new forms of governance, and whole systems design.

Part of their aim is to create processes and templates that other communities can use to regenerate the health of the bioregional ecosystem, the local communities, and the people living in them.

Neal Winokur “The Grumpy Accountant” Talks CRA and Business Taxes with Entrepreneurs

This live discussion was the first off many to come. Subscribe to Canada’s Podcast to join us on future sessions. This month you can meet The Grumpy AccountantNeal Winokur and sound off about the CRA and its approach to small business entrepreneurs in Canada.

Neal Winokur, CPA, started his practice in 2013 and his grumpiness has grown ever since. An active blogger, several of his articles have been published in the National Post. Neal feels a moral obligation to speak out against the inherent flaws, unfairness and needless complexities that define Canadian tax.

His dream is for the Canadian tax system to be massively simplified to the point where his job as a tax accountant would no longer exist. His wife won’t be too happy about this, but it’s for the good of the nation.

Nancy Wood is a creative writer who has written five non-fiction essays, prose and books for little kids and recently published The Magical Power of Color

Nancy Wood was a senior business communications specialist in Toronto for several years. In her “rewirement” years in B.C. she has toiled to transform her business-style writing into more creative writing – non-fiction essays, prose and books for little kids. She has written five books for kids, but it was not until an interesting opportunity came her way last year, that the first one of her books, The Magical Power of Color was published.

Nancy prefers writing to marketing and so getting the book in the hands of kids has been a bigger challenge. If anyone thinks it is a piece of cake to write a short book for kids, Nancy has learned that the old adage, “If I had time, I would have written a shorter letter,” really applies when it comes to books for kids.

Corey Croft

Corey Croft is an accidental entrepreneur and Founder of Fly Pelican Press, an independent book publishing company operating out of Vancouver British Columbia. Focusing on delivering non-commercial works of fiction in electronic and hard copy formats, and creating open-ended discourse through official publications and blogs, the company has a hard-to-forget slogan which you’ll hear in Corey’s Canada Podcast and view on his website – that is also his guiding principle for both content and delivery.

Corey Croft is from Surrey British Columbia, Canada. Self-described as a user of gallows humor to help to him stumble gracefully in a meaningless world. He avoids eye contact with strangers and doesn’t understand most kinds of science. As a child he was taken to church every Sunday and worried that every time it rained it would rain, biblically. As an adult, the rain is pretty good for writing and sleeping.
