• Three Powerful Techniques for Creating a Year You'll Love

      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. I've used many different techniques over the years, from creating Vision Boards - simple collages on poster board using words and pictures torn or cut from magazines, or more fluid versions using corkboards and tacks (nice because you can easily add or rearrange as changes occur) -

    • Mourning in the digital age

      One of the many things that have changed in the digital age is the way we grieve. Researching our book, Digital Legacy Plan, due out in March 2019, co-author Angela Crocker and I discovered some interesting research by professor Tony Walter, a sociologist from the U.K. who has written and taught widely on the social aspects of death, dying and loss. In his examination of online memorial culture in the context of the history of mourning (New mourners, old mourners: online memorial culture as a chapter in the history of mourning, New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia, 2015), he compares

    • Give Yourself a Do-Over

      Remember when you were a child and you were learning something new? I can vividly recall hours of practicing 'double-dutch' skipping with my girlhood friends, the uber-athletic Karen and the angelically curly-headed Lois. After class, we smacked those jumpropes against the schoolyard pavement until the custodian chased us away. Skinned knees, ankle socks tangled in the skipping lines, torn

      The Power of the Ask

      Need a ride to the airport? Ask. There are those who are delighted to be of service. In fact, Monique MacDonald in her work, ‘Discover Your Sacred Gifts’ identifies service as one of something in the neighbourhood of 22 sacred gifts distributed for use to us mere mortals. Not asking for what you need may well deny someone in your life the full expression of their particular gift, if they

      Don't Take those Unsubscribes Personally

      If you are dancing around in the world of multipreneurship, you are no doubt managing mailing lists, using a database to keep track of leads, and sending out regular newsletters or posts to fans, followers, customers and clients. You're not? Maybe we should talk. (Another time, perhaps.) One of the things that happens with mailing lists is that occasionally people unsubscribe from them.

      Gratefully Yours, The Past.

      It recently came to my attention that it was World Gratitude Day on September 21. This is one of those cultural milestones that simply wasn't on my radar until now. Missing it this year got me thinking about missing it other years, and that got me thinking about missed opportunities to say thank you in general, and that got me thinking about... (If you're an entrepreneur, you know how this

      Moonstruck: The Art of Letting Go

      It's a funny thing that receiving so often entails letting go. In 12-Step recovery programs for example, the very first step is surrender. It starts with words like, "Admitted I was powerless…" For alcoholics and addicts, this is key. By the time most get to investigating a recovery program, they've tried nearly everything within their power to overcome the addiction. It is in the

      Manifesting What Matters

      UPDATED: SEPT. 19-13 This week I was reminded that it's the little things that count. Lately, I've been playing a little in the fields of attraction.  I was on a roll a couple of days ago so I decided to play with manifesting a surprise $100. Just for fun, I am testing the universal field, seeing how long it takes between expressing a desire and its manifestation. What is the distance
