Jessica MacNutt, R.I.P.

I remember her strongly after investing money into her business, GroPro.ca about how she thanked myself and Suzanne Milner for a marketing consult. We held it at my home. Jessica was on fire! She loved her business and thought she could make it bloom. Years ago, she had one competitor in HRM. She even included…

#goldenyear let it be… compassion

The story begins with gratitude… 👉All the front line workers keeping us safe by doing their jobs and those hidden workers going above and beyond to make sure we still have some normalcy to life around us. Some connection. Today, I observed the 6feet rule and plexiglass in my grocery store. I saw a post…

Winter, winter… go away…#lol

Wow, I really am hating our cold weather here in Nova Scotia, Canada but I know my Mom’s side of the family in Alberta had it worst for a while last week. The Deep Freeze of the prairies. Hope they get a Chinook one day, soon! What have I been up to? I’m now a…

The “dating game” – winners or losers?

2019 has been an interesting year. Getting a handle on my health; having a friend die unexpectedly; supporting some friends in their businesses; re-configuring my own business; dealing with senior dog issues (liver disease and eye issues); health of certain family members; and working on school non-stop. What’s stood out recently is that I attempted…

Think that 1 hour workout a day is enough? Nope… and here’s what anyone can do to combat desk sitting all day

I attended Dr. Len Kravitz’s session on the Female Training Advantages and he referred to this study done showing that the one hour workout a day is not enough. For those of us who sit all day either at work or in a computer pod or at a desk as an #entrepreneur or #coach we’ve…

Top 10 Essential Oils night

I had no idea that if I used one Essential Oil, Lavender that I could change how I sleep, lower cholesterol, lower cortisol and deal with driving anxiety. One oil! Numerous issues dealt with. The life of an entrepreneur can be stressful. I was able to take some time off – but what if you…

How I recovered from BURNOUT and OVERWHELM

I realized I had to change my stress levels. My cortisol results were off the charts. My hormones with the exception of testosterone were imbalanced… I had plaque in my arteries… The list goes on… So, I booked my trip to Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona to see Dr. Diane Downing. I worked with my…

Happy New Year! My word for 2019 is Reserve

New Year, New You! How often do you hear that? Especially at this time of year? A lot. Right? What is the message you understand from that question?  What resonates with you?
