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). […]
A main tenant of preparing yourself for big change is all about clearing the clutter. What can you clear from your life physically, emotionally, from your calendar, or from your mind, in order to create the necessary space for change? I liken it to needing to get rid of ratty old couch before you can […]
The Isle of Arran is the home of my heart. It’s where I spent time with my grandmother growing up. It’s where I rode mini-ATVS, played mini golf, and visited the delicious local bakery. It’s also where I had my first real job, where I moved to immediately after high school as a 17 year […]
This is not the post that I intended to write this week. I had all kinds of other ideas to line up with the 121 Day Challenge, but I and many women and people around North America (and the world) have been very affected by the news and politics. Fear not, this is not a […]
This week on the podcast I’m joined by Calgary entrepreneur, mother, and badass cupcake creator, Jodi Willoughby. If that name isn’t ringing a bell for locals, perhaps… Crave Cupcakes? Yeah… now I’ve got your attention! We talk about how Crave Cupcakes almost never was, how they were turned away from farmer’s markets. Jodi shares her […]
Have you ever been in the groove with a project? I don’t mean a one-time groove, like an afternoon of flow state, but I mean showing up on a regular basis and making serious progress towards your goal? If you have, you know that there is no feeling like it. You’re on fire, you’re advancing, […]
This week on the podcast we’re joined by author, audiobook narrator, puppeteer, and podcaster (among many other things), Mary Robinette Kowal. I had the pleasure of seeing Mary give a keynote address at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference, except she gave it in an incredibly unique way – through her puppet. It was such a […]
Some people make achieving their goals look super simple, right? I mean, there are people who make a goal and seem to knock it out of the park, whereas you tell yourself you’re going to go for a swim at 6 am and hit snooze until it’s too late, am I right? Or are we […]
