#Metoo Is Not About Taking a Stand, It's About Starting a Conversation!

A lot of us read the #metoo post and automatically said YES, let’s talk. It’s still early days for it so I have no idea how it will all play out on social media but yesterday I saw a woman I know post that she wished people would stop posting #metoo and cited a screenshot of another woman’s post who said ‘victims do not owe anyone their story’ whic...

The Struggle is Real ~ Work or Stay Home? What if I Want Both?!

Before my kids were born, I was someone who blindly assumed I would never give up my high paid career, but there was a little voice that I wouldn't listen to which told me I might not know what I was talking about. It reminded me that I couldn't be the kind of mom I wanted to be if I was working all the time.  I guess there was a part of me deep do...

How Social Esteem Will Make You Pick a Job Not a Life

There I was, making six figures, successful by most standards, but totally unhappy with work, trying my hardest to push that feeling away that kept screaming "I want to do something else!!"

You have all of these ideas,...

Work hard, play hard, but work smart!

Are you someone who has always known you wanted to do things differently?  I've always been a bit of a dreamer, or at least that's what they call people who question why we all do what we do. A philosophy professor in my first year of university said to "always ask these two questions in life: What if? and How do you know?" I've always loved that b...

Why we are so scared of network marketing!

It's a pyramid scheme! Oh one of those things! Don't open friend requests through messenger, it's probably a pitch! Many of us have been there, heard that, said no or avoided the situation, and moved on.  I never thought in a million years that I would ever join the network marketing industry. I didn't think it was a real business or a real profess...
