Our Written Opinions
Digitally speaking, blogging is one of the coolest and easiest ways to share thoughts and insights (often referred to as opinions) that are outside the usual. Look for fresh insights and stories each week.
RIP Your Majesty
Your Majesty. I couldn’t NOT say something about the death of someone I have known about my entire life. And I am pretty sure you, too, have very likely never known such a visible public figure for so long. Whether we are members of the Commonwealth or not and whether the monarchy is relevant or
Another Launch is Happening
For the last three weeks, I have been developing my latest launch. It’s finally at a point where I can share some bits of it with you. Ta duh! I am launching another podcast by the end of September. It’s called — Exploring Compassionate Capitalism. It’s about doing business differently and moving beyond the “Profit
Toxicity? Not AGAIN!
Have you ever noticed how exhausting strong and competent people can be? They have very high standards, are real pros in their calling, and refuse to lower their performance bar for anyone. But, add in those with a solid moral compass, and man! They can be insufferable. I know — I’m one of them. Pity,
Crazy title, right? I wasn’t sure what to call today’s message. Since I am in the business of helping others BulletProof their business, I decided to share how I have BulletProofed myself.

HOW Do You Believe in YOURSELF? The chaotic unpredictability of life, especially these days, can shake our confidence
How Are YOUR Lilies?
I planted 9 ft tall lilies in the back garden a few years ago. This week, they are just beginning to open up. And with just four buds starting to open, the fragrance is heavenly. Our garden will smell intoxicating in less than a week when all the lily buds are open. Six years ago,
How to Create Some Space
Create some space????? We are all duty-bound and time-crunched, right? So our favourite refrain is, “I’m too busy.” And whether this is true or a handy excuse doesn’t matter. We believe we are time-crunched; therefore, we are. Would you like to get off that merry-go-round? Remember Oprah? Her personal coach was Martha Beck. And Martha
Canada: Another Year Older
Happy July Long Weekend Canada! Whether in Canada or the US, this weekend is all about celebrating. And politics aside, there are many reasons to celebrate. Besides the fireworks, this weekend is also a time for reflection. I have been doing some research and want to share where we Canadians are these days. For my
