      Hello 2018! Creating a visual representation of your goals and dreams is a powerful technique to support purposeful action. The representation (or anchor) acts as a strong reinforcement of the energy and intention driving your goals and helps you focus on what is truly important to you as the year unfolds.

    • A Missed Opportunity

      There is nothing I love quite as much as a summer road trip. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. A family celebration was planned, so I took a couple of extra days on either end of the event to holiday and play tourist. Naturally, I posted about my journey across the Salish Sea on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Almost immediately, new followers appeared, and a couple of local businesses took the time to tag and welcome me to the island.

      The world can use more love.

      Throughout the month of February, I focus on ways friends, fans and followers can be more loving – to each other and themselves, both online and off. No reason that we can’t raise our online standards. Frankly, the world can use more love, and I want to do my part. Christina Crook, in her book The Joy of Missing Out, Finding Balance in a Wired World, says: “Love has arms.” This

      We can make meaningful connections online.

      The Internet promises to connect us with each other, yet despite Canadians spending an average of 24 hours a week online, nearly 40 per cent of us say that we are lonely.
