For a very long time, I cared a LOT about what other people thought about me. I cared what they thought about how I did in school, how I looked, how I spoke, how I acted in a group, what my beliefs were… the list goes on. Don’t get me wrong, it still comes up […]
I first met Miranda Krogstad through a friend, and long story short she sang my first dance song at our welcome-to-Canada-(for my husband)-by-the-way-we-got-married party… as I lovingly refer to it. I knew her as a fabulous singer, but only in the past year did I learn about her masterful skills in spoken word. Her work […]
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is not for the faint of heart – as Christa Singleton proves, it’s for the fearless. I think I was scrolling through @womenwhohike on Instagram one day when they featured a group of plus size women who were training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

In my experience, there are three top contenders that derive the stress in my life. Number one – there is just too much on my plate, whether self-imposed or otherwise. Number two – things have not gone according to plan (we touched on this in the last coaching episode). And number three – I haven’t […]
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 […]
