It took Barb 27 years (and 7 post-secondary institutions) from the time she first set foot in a university lecture to graduating with a degree.

The lesson - It's never too late to do what's right for you, and when your heart is set on something it doesn't matter how many times it takes, the important thing is you're doing it.

Barb is a technology consultant and creator of cheeky greeting cards who likes to work, play and travel har...

What I love about Shay's story is her willingness to try several things before landing on her, now small business, Goods by Shay. Her perseverance after leaving her corporate job without knowing what was next is commendable - often we feel like we have to have it all figured out and can't make a move until we have all the pieces in order, but Shay is challenging that narrative. You can lean into your creativity and trust what your...

It feels lately like there's nothing but disaster happening around the globe. Many of us are feeling the effects, not knowing how we can help, or what to do, while having so many feelings about what is happening all around us. 

It's tough, especially in a culture that has us feeling like our pain isn't worthy if someone else is having it harder than us. Same kind of thing with joy - we feel bad looking for the good when everything ...

October is a significant month for me, and I recently took a few minutes to dive into just HOW significant.

I'm sharing this episode recorded for the Empowered Essence Podcast with the lovely Laura Lorentz. 

In this discussion, we talk about leaning into trust, listening to your intuition as it guides us to next steps, versus the age-old concept of taking pre-meditated or planned out steps to get to a goal. 

We chat about flipping the script upside down as we trust what's in us, and reflect on what happens when we don't listen to what ou...

You'll hear me say time and time again that the only way we make it past our fear is to lean into courage. If we shy away from what we are afraid of, we will stay where exactly where we are. There is nobody outside of us that can do the hard things for us - WE are the only ones who can take the leap. 

I know first hand how hard it is to stand with your knees shaking, almost buckling underneath you as you take that step. The mind do...

I loved this conversation with Mandy, as we chatted about her experience in the mucky middle - her perspective as she finds her way through the change she feels coming, but can't quite put her finger on yet.

What comes through a lot in this conversation is the striking difference in how many of us were taught to navigate change, or rather seemingly expected to figure it out and move along, instead of realigning with what feels righ...
