I am writing this as I put the finishing touches on the 3Day plus 1 Reset exercise I told you about a few weeks back. And spending much time thinking about anxiety, angst and anger. I got angry last week at a TV producer interviewing me for a piece on his career resources production. (He
Did you know it is a popular myth that pearls are made from a grain of sand? To be super clear, it’s a lie! Intriguing folklore, complete without merit. Nearly all high-quality pearls come from oysters, and oysters are incredibly adept at secreting the sand that regularly gets into their shells. On the other hand,
Let’s talk about one idea we have about personal success. Lately, I’ve been trying to work through the different scenarios that would play out if we arbitrarily chopped the value of all homes globally by 50% to make the market more accessible. Notice I said globally. Because, in theory, there would be no impact if
Do you remember the early to mid-1990s? We were forced to get behind Canada’s poorly communicated reduce, reuse, recycle program.

(Notice I said many; I did not say all). One of the things I am doing is taking a portion of the estate proceeds and setting up
We often use “20/20 hindsight” to describe the clarity of vision that comes from our experiences – it allows us to see the mistakes we made in the past and how we could have done things differently. Since we are looking back on what has already occurred, the reasons it happened become crystal clear even
Next week, I will finally open the doors to the 5Cs Community and invite the first 100 founding members!!!!! Yes, I am excited. Strangely enough, I have no terror or fear. Not of losing the sizeable investment in funds and time I have put into it. Nor am I fussing about whether this is the
Let’s talk about a different sort of anxiety. In my late twenties, hubby and I bought our first house. We had precisely ten grand to put down, interest rates were 20%, and we ended up taking a first and second mortgage for a home that cost us exactly double our combined annual income. I wasn’t
Tale #1 Went to see the movie Priscilla last weekend. It was very different from the Elvis blockbuster of last year. Priscilla was the Steak to the Sizzle known as Elvis. Apparently, the musician was talented, tormented and totally whacked (on drugs and out of his mind) most days. What he portrayed in public and
