Why I'm Skipping Black Friday This Year

Why I'm Skipping Black Friday This Year
Thanksgiving is meant to be a time of gratitude and gathering with family and friends. And sadly, that feeling of gratitude and being grateful for what we already have, disappears within 24 hours.

Does 30 Days of Self-Love Make a Difference?

Does 30 Days of Self-Love Make a Difference?
Back in September, I was inspired by the idea of creating a 30 Days of Self-Love project. There were many things I was struggling with and I knew that I needed to make changes. Many of the strategies I had used in the past just weren't working anymore. I was intrigued by this idea of self-love and wanted to learn more.

Self-Care Sunday, Cliche or a Necessity?

Self-Care Sunday, Cliche or a Necessity?
Do you choose to participate in #selfcaresunday?
This seems so cliche however I really did take care of myself and practice self love on Sunday. I feel like my project on self-love is really helping me to make changes.

How Does Self-Love Change Our Perspective?

How Does Self-Love Change Our Perspective?
What comes to mind when you think about daily self-love practices? Are there strategies that you have when you're overwhelmed or feeling down? Last week, I started a new project called 30 Days of Self-Love. It's a personal journey towards a lifetime of self-love. I've been doing really amazing interviews with women and men who are practicing self-love in some many different ways, in their own lives and with their clients or community.

What A Speaking Tour Experience is Really Like!

What A Speaking Tour Experience is Really Like!
Over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, I did something I've never done before. I was invited on a speaking tour in the US and travelled to 4 cities in 5 days. I've always wondered what it would be like to go on a speaking tour and now I have first hand experience. Would I do it again? Stay tuned.....

What Does Thanksgiving Mean to Me?

What Does Thanksgiving Mean to Me?
As we approach the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada, it's my favorite time of year because it reminds everyone to be grateful. I would love us all to be grateful every single day of the year. Often, Thanksgiving is a time for people to remember about gratitude. I love that there is a holiday that really focuses on being grateful for what we have, reflecting on our lives, and having gratitude for the year that has passed. And it's a reminder of all the beautiful abundance has come into our lives.

How Do You Get Inspired?

How Do You Get Inspired?
There are times when I feel totally uninspired. That's when my creativity is stifled and my mood is down. I admit, I'm often looking for inspiration in the form of a book, podcast, video or blog. When I want to kick up my inspiration to the next level though, I always attend a live event. That is how I recharge my creativity, make new friends, create solid relationships and get inspired to move mountains!

Give Up? Or Dig Deeper?

Give Up? Or Dig Deeper?

It's almost been a year since we moved to Vancouver Island. And it's been the most challenging year in my business yet. The truth is, I thought about giving up more than once over the past 12 months. So why did I choose to dig deeper instead?

There were moments, many of them, when I wanted to give up. Then I would think about my team back east. And all of the amazing things they were doing. I knew that they weren't going to give up. That fueled me to keep going.

Where Do I Find Happiness?

Where Do I Find Happiness?

There are so many ways that I've tried to find happiness and joy over the years.

I looked for happiness in my partners.

I looked for happiness in my travels.

I looked for happiness in my child.

 Til one day I truly understood that there is only one person and one place where happiness and joy live.

Don't Judge Me

Don't Judge Me

Don't judge me because I only have one child, you don't know I've had two miscarriages.

Don't judge me because my pants are too snug, you don't realize how much I want them to fit well.....

I shared this on social media a few days ago and it really resonated with so many of you. We know that most people aren't worrying about what we're doing or judging our actions. Truth is, most of us are being far more judgmental about our OWN choices, than what others are doing.

The Leadership Lesson I Didn't Want

The Leadership Lesson I Didn't Want

A few weeks ago, I attended the USANA International Convention in Salt Lake City. And within 24 hours of arriving at Convention this year, I received the gift of a leadership lesson that I really didn't want.

The night before the main event, I had a moment where I felt like I had been overlooked and left out of a very special event. I felt like other leaders who were 'on the same level' as me were invited, and I was not asked to be a part of it.

Meeting Gary Vaynerchuk! And What I've Learned From Him.

Have you ever worried that when you meet someone who you look up to as a mentor in real life won't be what you expected? I was definitely a bit concerned about the REAL Gary Vee.
