I have failed miserably when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions.
Mostly because they were motivated by some unspoken “should”s. You should lose weight/get healthier. You should save more money/make more money. You should organize and purge all the things. The lists went on. Year after year. Trying to will myself into being…different. And if you’ve ever bought a gym membership in January you know - willpower is a finite resource.
Enter last year. . .Read More
I've been writing these wishes for 3 years now and it's becoming one of my favourite traditions. <3
May you know your infinite potential and your innate worth. You are enough, just as you are.
May you understand the paradox of being perfect and always a work in progress. Expansion is the point AND there's nothing to fix.
May you feel the conviction of your beliefs fuel your words and actions.
May your voice be heard around the world. Clearly articulating the message of your soul without fear or doubt. May you feel the power of your words and may they reach the hearts of those who need to hear them most.Read More
The words, experiences and music that moved me. The things I STILL love for business & life plus a couple I’m seriously considering for 2019.Read More
It was a winter year,
a planting of seeds in the darkness year,
pacing the well-worn paths of my heart.
Nurturing the tender new shoots.
Weeding the beliefs that would choke their growth.
Trusting the garden would bloom again.
More spectacular and vibrant,
than I had ever known.
Nowhere is it easier to see the power of creation that we hold than in our businesses. It’s a chance to design your life. It’s a chance to define who you are. It’s a chance to explore alternatives, opportunities and make new decisions when you don’t love the results you’re getting.Read More
Last week I spent over 12 hours driving (16 + hours over 3 days sitting in the car). My sister and I got REALLY lost. Not in the that-was-a-fun-detour kinda way but in the it’s-10PM-and-where-the-hell-are-we kinda way. We ended up 1/2 way to Sudbury before we pulled over and conceded we were fo’ sure NOT where we were supposed to be.
Which got me thinking. . .Read More
It’s been 3 weeks since my last blog, which kinda feels like walking up to a confessional booth and saying it’s been 3 weeks since my last confession. Or so I imagine because I’m not Catholic. I also took a huge break from posting content on social media.
I wish I could say that I’ve been quiet because I’ve been on vacation on some gorgeous tropical beach. That I’m writing to you now with sand between my toes.
I felt completely drained. Exhausted. Uninspired. I had NOTHING to say (which never happens). Until it did, 3 weeks ago. Does this ever happen to you?Read More
My love/ hate relationship with Facebook Groups.
We all know that participating in Facebook groups can be great for business. Showing up and adding value, demonstrating your knowledge, supporting and encouraging fellow entrepreneurs, soaking up the wisdom from people in different fields.
When it all goes well. . .it’s a powerful resource, a way to stay connected, discover people doing seriously cool shit, get fresh perspectives and serve without an agenda.
At one point I belonged to 100+ Facebook groups and I’ve run a couple as well (admittedly they were very small and for a very specific purpose).
Here’s what I’ve learned about myself navigating the ever-changing landscape of Facebook groups as an entrepreneur.Read More
