I wanted to start the first missive of the year with a commentary on what happens when all the things you planned… don’t go to plan. We’ve all been there, right? You think you’re going to have the most epic New Year’s Eve, but instead you spend hours in line, overpay for cover charges or […]

This week on the podcast we’re joined by body confidence coach, Instagrammer, speaker, YouTuber, podcaster and author, Michelle Elman. Having had 15 surgeries in the space of 20 years, Michelle noticed that there was minimal representation of people with scars in media. She started the campaign #scarrednotscared and shared a picture of herself in a […]
It’s that time of year… The time that we set resolutions and the time that we either say 2018 was amazing, meh or a dumpster fire of a year. I get it. I’ve had all of those three at various year ends. What I want to talk to you about today is how to look […]
This week on the podcast we’re joined by boss babe, community creator and woman empowering women, Mandy Balak. If you’re from Calgary (and beyond) and don’t know her by name, you might recognize the businesses It’s Date Night and The Ace Class, both founded by Balak. When I first saw Mandy speak at a Babes […]
You know a word that I’ve never resonated with? Manifesting. I hear people talk about how they manifest their goals, manifest their dreams, or they are simply “manifesting” and it’s made me feel icky. It made me feel like people were leaving their hopes, dreams, goals up to the mystical universe. And then I read […]
I am so over the moon to be joined on the podcast this week by Marlo Brausse. Those in my life know that I am a barre-convert, and a huge part of that is down to attending Barre Body Studio, owned by Marlo Brausse. In particular, I attended one of Marlo’s class, and no joke, […]
We all have some big dream, something that we want, whether we tell anyone or not. It could be to get a promotion, to find love, to get pregnant, to start a business, to lose weight, to run a marathon, to learn to love your body… it could be anything. We usually start out our […]
This week on the podcast we’re joined by Financial Behaviourist, Jacquette M. Timmons. I was first introduced to Jacquette by Stephanie Pollock, the very first guest on the Girl Tries Life podcast. In doing my research, I came across Jacquette’s signature exercise: the Financial Wheel exercise. I highly recommend you try it out! It definitely opened my […]
If you’ve ever said to yourself, I can’t do ‘x’ because of ‘y’, or I’m not ‘z’ enough, then you, my friend, have imposed a limiting belief on yourself. A limiting belief, in its simplest form, is a belief that you hold which limits the actions that you take. For example, you might worry that […]
This week on the podcast I’m so pleased to be joined by local teacher, world traveler and incredible mom, Jody Danchuk. Way back when my husband and I backpacked Southeast Asia in 2014, I vividly remember this Australian family that we kept running into as we travelled throughout Vietnam (most travellers go a similar route).
