November 2017 New Business

CENTURY 21 Real Mountain Living Inc.
362b 2nd Ave

In October, Century 21 Real Mountain Living Inc. opened its doors and hosted their grand opening. Owners Marilyn Brock and Nancy McNay have been in the real estate business for well over 30 years, but operating their own business just made sense so they decided to purchase the CENTURY 21 Franchise in July of 2016. They waited for the right location to open their office, and are happy with what they have created.

The office is bright, cheerful and tastefully done. “A new look for Fernie,” says Nancy. “Plenty of parking, easy access, and centrally located are just some of the key features.” Offering full real estate services and a wealth of information about Fernie and the surrounding areas, visit for more details, or stop by their new space in downtown Fernie to talk.


Paige Mueller never thought that she would start a business. And she certainly never thought it would be based out of Nepal. Yet, after meeting her business partner Nadia Roy when they were both working in Kathmandu in 2016, something magical happened.

The two women combined their passions and came up with a project in ethical shopping and traceability. Earthbeats combines Mueller’s love of filmmaking and Roy’s social entrepreneurial spirit to create something unique. Earthbeats is primarily an online store selling handmade and handcrafted herbal products from the foothills of the Himalayas. Everything from hand-rolled incense, to herbal amulets and handmade paper products.

They work solely with small producers, whose shops they frequented months before the idea of Earthbeats arose. To make sure that the business was as transparent as possible, the team travelled all over Nepal making short documentary films about the production processes. You can meet the artisans and view the shop at
