Van­cou­ver-based Jes­sica Werb writes about busi­ness while jug­gling moth­er­hood and a side ca­reer as a cel­list. A for­mer se­nior writer at Bcbusi­ness, she re­turns to pro­file some of our EY En­tre­pre­neur of theyear fi­nal­ists (p.31). “It's al­ways fas­ci­nat­ing to learn about the dif­fer­ent av­enues en­trepreneurs have taken to find­ing suc­cess,” Werb says. “But one thing they all share is a spirit of in­de­pen­dence and cre­ativ­ity.”

Pho­tog­ra­pher Me­lanie Dunea (“The Gam­bler,” p.62) lives in Newyork but trav­els the world shoot­ing high-pro­file sub­jects rang­ing from Jon Bon Jovi and Steve Mar­tin to An­thony Bour­dain and Patti La­belle. When Dunea pho­tographed Scott Menke and Diana Bennett, the Parq Van­cou­ver re­sort and casino was in the fi­nal stages of con­struc­tion. “Work­ing on a con­struc­tion site, there are a lot of rules,” she says. “I've never shot with a hard hat on be­fore.”
