Summer busy time for local tourism Yorkton’s motto is Where Good Things Happen! And as we continue through the summer season, more and more tourists from all around the world are visiting. The tourism industry continues to be an important economic factor for Yorkton, with 38.1 million spent directly in the Yorkton constituency by visitors to the region.

Every year, Tourism Yorkton keeps a tally of all the people that come into the city as visitors, so that the people of the City of Yorkton can have a better idea about who is coming into our city and why. This year, Yorkton has had an impressive amount of visitors in May and June. 679 came from within Canada and

61 came from the United States and elsewhere in the world, for a grand total of 740 visitors in these two months alone. Some interesting facts about our visitors in May and June: Over half of our visitors came from Eastern Canada. Almost 20 per cent of our visitors came from within Saskatchewan.

Prince Edward Island had the least amount of visitors at 5, but nearby Nova Scotia had 56! The furthest anyone travelled to come and see us were Australians that travelled over 13,000 kilometers! Visitors also had some positive things to say about the city when they came into our Visitor Information Centre:

What are the keys to succeeding as a businesswoman? The appetite for risk, the love for a good challenge, the desire to succeed, the longing to be one’s own boss, the appeal of a better balance between work and family life, and, most importantly, the immense passion for one’s job — these are the driving factors that are increasingly pushing women to enter the business world. Today, many women enjoy great success and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. But how do you become an accomplished businesswoman? Entrepreneurs normally have several

essential qualities in common, starting with an unfailing desire to succeed. Self-confidence and leadership are two other important characteristics to have to get ahead in the business world — an industry that is still largely male-dominated. And that’s not all! To succeed, women must master the art of organization, sales and networking. But above all, they must demonstrate a high level of creativity. Furthermore, successful businesswomen aren’t only conscious of their capabilities; they’re also

aware of their limitations. In other words, they aren’t afraid to delegate tasks that fall beyond their expertise to others. Being an entrepreneur means surrounding yourself with the right people, specifically trustworthy people whose skillsets contribute to the company’s prosperous future. Lastly, it’s no secret that the recipe for success includes a lot of hard work. Successful businesswomen are completely invested in their company and know the value of sacrifice. So, think you have what it takes?
