New Westminster entrepreneur duo and married couple Brandy Kawulka and Paul Keller have been featured on an international business website, Creative Couples.

In a profile interview, the couple discuss how they decided to start their high-end custom wood furniture business Wood be Art and how they run it together as a couple.

Megan Williams, co-founder of the network and a former New Westminster resident, said Kawulka and Keller were a perfect fit for the site.

"Having a couple and company join our network from my hometown of New Westminster is really exciting. It's nice to feel supported by the community and I hope we can show the same support for Brandy, Paul and Wood Be Art."

SOCIAL MEDIA

Members of the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce are being offered the opportunity to get tapped into the omnipresent social media to help build professional networks and market their business in the city and abroad.

The chamber has arranged for Constant Contact to give the workshop on July 28.

The event is targeted at small business owners and non-profit heads who are beginner or intermediate social media users on websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkeDIn.

The session runs from 9: 45 a.m. to 12: 15 p.m. at the New Westminster Public Library and is free for chamber members.

FREE SLURPEES

How do you like your Slurpees? All one flavour or a hybrid of five or six? How about free?

Because every 7-Eleven store in Canada, including three in New Westminster, is giving away 1,000 free small Slurpees on Monday, July 11 to celebrate the store's 42nd year in business in Canada.

7-Eleven has locations on Sixth Street, 12th street and East Columbia Street in New West.

The company says it has sold about 6.5 billion Slurpees since they were introduced in 1966 and Canadians consume an average of 30 million a year - the highest per capita in the world.
