    • Technology Fatigue is Real

      I have technology fatigue. “Oh no,” I think, sighing, “here we go again…” It’s not the first time I’ve been through this. In recent years, I’ve suffered from Facebook fatigue, Twitter fatigue, smartphone fatigue, and even back in the day, email fatigue. In fact, I’m far enough along this journey that I can remember when the phone rang off the hook and drove me crazy. Before the convenience of just letting everything go to voicemail, I had been known to simply yank the telephone cord from the wall. I spend a good part of my working day researching,

    • An Opportunity to Start Over

      It’s the time of year for reflection. Most of us are well fed and have spent the past few days reconnecting with family and friends and sharing the spirit of the holidays. There is breathing space now and a chance to rest and relax before the start of the new year. So, what does 2020 look like for you? That question can be big or small depending on where you sit. If you are an entrepreneur, every year poses a new opportunity to expand – to take more space in whatever area it is you’re passionate about. If you work for someone else, you may be looking to grow your

    • The Heft of a Good Book

      My husband and I are downsizing and we’re spending the early days of summer sorting and sifting through two decades of household goods. We’re both writers and we have a vast collection of books. We’ve slowed down on new book purchases as we navigate this transition, and I have become extremely grateful for the Kindle app, allowing me to continue to ‘collect’ books in digital

      Everyday Happiness

      I believe happy idleness is a pathway to a purposeful life. In North America, particularly, we have come to reject idleness, and yet it is in the pauses between our seemingly urgent tasks and activities that we find our deepest contentment. The everyday happiness philosophy suggests that it is life’s ordinary moments, small victories, and day-to-day joys that provide an infinite source of

      Yellow is for Hello

      I recently had the opportunity to attend the 10th anniversary of Social Media Camp. The annual conference, held in Victoria B.C., is Canada’s largest social media event. Marking a decade as a leader in the digital and social media space made this particular year uniquely special. It was a reflective conference, with speakers and attendees looking back over a “decade of disruption,” as

Do you get more or less comfortable with the idea when you consider that what you post today can potentially last well beyond your natural lifespan and into the future forming a kind of digital archeology? Here’s a staggering thought: 100 years from now there will be a billion dead people on Facebook. You may

      Cooperation and Partnership

      Writing a book is hard work, requiring strong research, organization, and composition skills. Co-authoring a book is hard work halved, but requires the additional skills of cooperation and partnership.

      Wisdom from the Inbox

      I’m a bit of a Chris Brogan fangirl. If you don’t know his work, you should. He’s a genius, although he would never say so himself. A New York Times bestselling author of nine books and counting, he’s a journalist, speaker and strategist, and the CEO of Owner Media Group. He’s an eagle-eyed trend-watcher, and one of only a handful of modern marketing gurus I allow regular access to my
