Strategies for improving workplace communication. In the last few months, I have taken a deep dive into the emotional toil that stress has on our bodies, particularly as business owners, entrepreneurs, service providers. Whatever camp you fall in, stress is real. And I have countless stories, including my own, where stress has manifested itself in an ugly way in our body’s. No one is going to die, but there are consequences of stress on our body. Learning how to regulate emotions has a major impact on how our body’s handle stress. I have spoken about the connection between business owners an ..read more

I Feel Invisible

I feel invisible. I know I’m not, but that’s how I feel. Well, on the feelings wheel, I actually feel ignored. But invisible is pretty darn close. Let’s start at the beginning. In January of this year, I found a lump on my breast. I wasn’t really worried, I have had lumps before. I actually had a large one removed in 2016 and it was benign (non-cancerous) so I kind of knew the process.  I went to my doctor the last week of January, and that’s really where the story begins. Grab a tea and settle in….. My family doctor of 15 years sent me for an ultrasound, and mammogram. That appointment ..read more

Coaching is a life long profession that often thrives on connections, growth, and personal development.

This past weekend, in Lethbridge AB (Canada) my husband, Vince, attempted to run a 100 mile race. You read that correctly, 100 miles. Now, let me preface this with the fact that he is an ultra athlete, and has been for the past 2 years. He has run 3 x 50 km ultra marathons, 1 x 83 km ultra marathon, and 1 x 100 km ultra marathon. So, yes he goes for a run today, and comes back tomorrow. He trains relentlessly, squeezing in runs in between coaching sessions, as lets not forget he also has a Performance Coaching practice to own and operate. He runs evenings, weekends, early morning, late night ..read more

I have been an avid reader my entire life. I grew up in a very small town in Northern Saskatchewan, and we did have a very small ‘cottage’ like library. As a kid, and until I moved away, I read every book in the teen/young adult section. Twice.  You can imagine my enthusiasm as I moved to bigger and bigger places. I am a member of every library in every city I have ever lived in since. Library’s have often been my safe space, somewhere I could go and read or work. Be it reading, creating, studying…. Fast forward to today. I am a coach/creator and whether it’s a course, or an ebook ..read more

In our fast-paced world, setting goals has become crucial for personal and professional success. However, merely stating our aspirations is not enough. It’s time to turn to pen and paper and start writing these down. You could use a vision board, a sticky note pad, a custom notebook. It’s up to you, but it’s time to start writing. To turn anything into reality, we need a structured and strategic approach. This is where the S.M.A.R.T. goal method/map comes into play. I have known about the smart goal method for years, but it was really the recent months at the Jay Shetty school where we really ..read more

20 Years Later

In 2003 I ran a half-marathon. And now 20 years later I ran it again. But I made some much needed changes. 11 months ago, I embarked on a running journey that has transformed both my physical and mental capabilities. Starting with mere 1-minute runs followed by 1-minute walks, I gradually progressed and after a few months, began contemplating a significant goal. This led me to register for the Calgary half-marathon, which took place this past Sunday, May 28th. With a target of completing the race in under three hours while ensuring an injury free finish, I am really grateful to say that I ach ..read more

Lets Talk about Sleep

I have a check in with clients before we start a session, and as of late, I have added the question “how much sleep have you had in the last 7 days?” Most answers are that they have slept ok, but could use more. Which got me thinking, what happens when we don’t get enough sleep. Besides the insistent yawning throughout the day….there are a few cognitive challenges that come with not enough sleep. One of the first things to go when we don’t get enough sleep is the ability to focus our attention. These are called attentional blinks, and it’s where you lose your ability to pay attention for just ..read more
