It's exhausting, this constant pressure that exists in the "real world." We're making decisions today that outline the rest of our lives. The choices we make now help us discover who we are, what we want in life, where we live and what people we want to spend our time with. How do you know which path is best? The truth is, you don't.

Let's take a little baby break, clear the system, save some dollars, walk home wearing shoes, etc. Plus, this gives you a very dramatic and lovely opportunity to ,at the stroke of midnight on Halloween, transform back into that famous little Drunkerella we all love so much!
A recent study shows that a culture of collaboration is one of the top things millennials are looking for in an employer. Building this type of culture not only makes business 'cents' through increased productivity and creativity, but it also creates a more engaged workforce, increasing morale and helping attract and retain top talent.
Millennials are reaching the age when they should be achieving financial autonomy and independence, but unfortunately many aren't. Why are millennials having so much difficulty landing a job and living independently? According to a survey, this generation says its biggest obstacle to financial success is the lack of earning power and unemployment, followed by a lack of budgeting, planning and saving.
My mentoring work has led me to conversations with millennials who have left a positive and lasting impression. I have learned much from them -- practically and personally.

With the election a mere two weeks away, all candidates have a real opportunity to improve their standing by focusing on youth voters.

If you are reading this, you may be a smart leader that knows how to earn money and build long-term relationships with your clients. If you analyze the key behind this kind of success you will find there is a simple answer: empathy.
Since I launched my business, executives have told me that they didn't have the time, money nor inclination to train and promote anyone other than the top 20 percent of their leadership, because that is where they believed their profits came from.

If you can master this skill our research demonstrates that you can increase trust in leadership by 9 per cent in as little as 13 weeks. What does this mean to business higher productivity? Less churn. What does the mean to politicians, the difference between losing and winning, especially in a horse race election like Ontario's.
