Totally disconnecting from technology for hours at a time while reconnecting to nature empowers you to open up space for ideas to flow freely. Ideas that would normally get clogged up in the brain clutter of online life. This is what it takes to tap into something greater; to tap into your highest potential.
A friend and I made a pact to delete the social apps off our devices and not personally post anything, or look at anyone else's posts, for one week. I love social media -- but going off it gave me a fresh perspective.
Like most 21st-century humans, I am burning the candle at both ends. When I feel the world spinning too quickly and have a moment's respite, I don't look up, I look online. I scroll through Facebook because, well, that's what I do. This indifference to an obviously compulsive behaviour lets a day slip quickly by.

Congratulations to me on having finally arrived at that wonderful place wherein it doesn't matter to me if people don't find me bright, interesting, engaging, articulate or attractive. I am finally -- at 52 -- happy with who I am. I have finally decided that I have things to say that are worth taking note of.

The reality is that what we do with our money every day, matters, and could have long-term implications for our financial security. Every day, we are making trade-offs with our money.

Put your saving strategy and bill payments on auto pilot. We all know it, but saving money each month is saving for the future. Just know, savings are what you pay yourself, and if you want to secure your golden years and worry less, then pay yourself first. Set up automatic bill payments.
I look around and see many of us not living and evolving and creating our best stories today but continue to rehash old stories of the past. Yes these stories keep us connected to what has happened, but honestly it may be time to let go.
Like most working women, I feel time starved. My plate is full. There never seems to be enough hours in the day to get done all the things I need to get done. I am constantly making trade-offs. And, as an entrepreneur with a school aged child, I have less wiggle room.
When it comes down to it, if we want to change how we experience the world, we must make the choice to change it. Newly enlightened self awareness can be used to create a shift within ourselves; a sen...
My life has been "busy" and a lot of work for quite some time now, and that's something I don't want to change. I still take the necessary time to unplug and fill myself and my family up, but cannot deny that I also thrive off of creating and growing in business. That will likely always be part of me, even with a new baby at my side. My work is very much tied into what I want to create for my family to benefit from. I have complete respect for the women who grow up with a complete focus on wanting to stay home and raise a family... but for me, part of what I want to represent to my children is showing them that they have the ability to "have it all."
It may come as a shock to you, but I always skip breakfast. Instead of rushing to prepare a large breakfast every morning, I practice intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting consists of fasting for a minimum of 16 hours per day. It is a simple dietary approach to achieve longevity, better health, and fitness performance.
On Thursday May 9, I was one of 10 speakers who was given the opportunity to grace the stage of the Winter Garden Theatre. This was the "Top Ten Event," in support of Autism Ontario. Each speaker had 10 minutes to offer words of wisdom on the "one thing you should know before you die!" Read on for my five survival tips.

She makes a strong majority of all household purchases from groceries, to clothing, to the family car, and also decides where to get services for the family, like banking, insurance and cable, phone and internet. Here are three important insights about moms that every marketer should know.
