    • 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

    • There's Bears in There

      When I was a girl, I had a cousin the same age who was firmly convinced that bears lived under our shared bed and in the bedroom closet. He would whisper to my mother at bedtime, in his somewhat unnaturally low and serious boy's voice: "Aunty, there's bears in there". This was declared with a five-year old's sad wisdom, clearly conveying his conviction that my mother's complete ignorance of the

      The Suitcases of Tiny Failures

      I recently had the opportunity to talk a little bit about my travels on the multipreneurship path. It was by way of introducing myself on Facebook to a group I'm taking on a mindfulness retreat this Fall. I shared a bit about how I've grown my coaching skills by following the threads of whatever I seem to need more of in my own life. I've been on a personal leadership journey for the past two

      The Goosebump Legacy

      Do you ever have that experience where you see, hear or read something and you get gooseflesh? I recently experienced a wicked case of goosebumpiness on a summer holiday trip to the UK. I get the 'bumps when I encounter something ancient, deeply poetic, soul-wrenching or insanely true. Even my goosebumps were getting goosebumps on my recent trip. A performance of 'The Curious Incident of the

      Want the Truth? Look Inside.

      Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things. Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH. Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't

      Headlines from 1970

      Clans have been gathering in the summertime since time began.  These events can be a strange mixture of reconnecting, reminiscing and regret that can sometimes bring on a sort of bewildering vertigo. The vertigo results from being suddenly flung backward in time into one's ungainly 12-year old self, and when the time travel trigger is one of your first true loves, the journey is a cocktail

      Let Happiness Get Your Attention

      What is #everyday happiness? Everyday happiness is a notion and it is also a conversation. The notion is that it is life’s ordinary moments, small victories, and day-to-day joys that provide an infinite source of contentment and delight. That these incidental happenings, moreso than big occasions, epic wins or brass bands trumpeting our achievements, are what sustain us and give us hope and
