Today on the podcast we’re joined by Calgary-based artist, Melissa McKinnon. I have been a huge fan of Melissa’s work for years, so the opportunity to meet her in person, to snoop around her studio and to actually touch a painting (she invited me to, guys!) made my ever-loving day. In this interview, Melissa and […]

One of the key principles that we talk about in coaching is that in order to bring something new into your life, be it a habit, a relationship, a business, etc., you have to let go of something. We’ve talked about letting go before, but I want to get very specific about how to do […]
For all the parents out there whose babies have suffered from colic, this is my salute to you. Nobody expects they’ll have a baby with colic. We expect our baby will be born, it’ll be gorgeous, yeah sure we’ll have a few sleepless nights, but any cry will be quickly resolved with a burping, a […]
This week on the podcast I’m joined by world-traveler, Instagrammer, and Intuitive Eater, Jen Rawson. She goes by the name Pretty Little Grub on both her blog and her Instagram, which is where I first heard of her. Here was this fellow Calgarian about to embark on a year of epic travel adventures with her […]
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. Viktor E. Frankl If you haven’t heard of Viktor Frankl, he was a survivor of Auschwitz, a psychiatrist and a neurologist, who went […]
I’ve been following Cait Flanders’ blog since it was originally named Blonde on a Budget. At that time, she was detailing her experience getting out of $30,000 of consumer debt. Incredibly, she got herself out of debt in fairly short order (and told her readers EXACTLY how she did it), then once debt-free she got […]

According to the American Psychological Association, in 2017, their annual stress research findings showed that 77% of individuals regularly experience physical symptoms of stress (think lack of sleep, muscle tension, IBS, […]
I was so pleased to be introduced to Esmahan Razavi through a previous podcast guest, Lourdes Juan. For quite some time now I’ve been wanting to dive into how different life is for women embarking into politics. Esmahan recently ran for city council in Calgary, Alberta, and while she didn’t get elected, she learned A […]
A few months ago when I was working with a client, we were talking about her big dream: she wanted to start her own business. We all have a big dream: our own business, writing a book, a creative endeavour, running a marathon, getting ‘that’ job, buying our first house, having children… whatever your dream may […]
Today on the podcast we’re joined by all around BADASS, Hannah Cree. I don’t say that lightly – I left my hour long interview with Hannah completely blown away by the work that she does as a social entrepreneur with her business Common Good linens. Not only is it a linen service, but they provide jobs […]
