    • 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 opening keynote Scott Stratten described it. The themes running through most of the presentations were thoughtful and philosophical– looking back, taking stock of where we are now as

      Wheeling in Wholeness for 2019

      Nothing is quite as exciting as a shiny, new year to play with. January is a great time to pause and reflect in order to set goals and craft a plan for the upcoming year. Let me offer up some planning advice from a coaching perspective. New goals and plans need to be devised in a way that integrates them with all the dimensions that make up our lives. If we look at our lives through a lens

      Best gift of all is time

      I’ve written about managing holiday expectations and choosing to participate only in what truly brings you joy. So often, though, we do the opposite. I get it – it’s tough to stand down from the desire to create a perfect celebration, and find the perfect gifts. On the surface, it’s far easier to overindulge, overspend and get overwhelmed. I was inspired by a recent email

      Hello December

      Hello, December. It’s the festive season and that its time to shop, wrap, decorate, feast and frolic. For some, it is a time of wholehearted joy and celebration.

For all of us, it is a time we can reach out and connect with family, friends, clients and customers.

      A great gift of the Internet is its use as a research tool. For the past year or so, I have been working on a manuscript that chronicles a period of my childhood, populated with an intriguing array of characters who were largely the summertime friends of my late father. The work is a form of memoir, and the people I am writing about are real people. The freedom I give myself as a writer in

      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
