    • 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

    • Three Ways To Turn Back Time

      Updated: April 2017 I meet many in midlife who  exclaim, "I wish I could turn back time!", lamenting about lost opportunities or the lack of consciousness they had about the possibilities life would hold. For many self-employed entrepreneurs, our skills were late-blooming ones. We started out in typical nine-to-five jobs on a career track, or with businesses focused on a specific

      Mindful Monday: When Even Your Ideas Have Ideas

      Multipreneurs face a hard truth. It goes like this: we are basically as busy as we want to be. We have ideas. Lots of them. Even our ideas have ideas. While, personally, I dig the idea of being an idea generation machine (see, there's an example of an idea having an idea right there), what I know is that there's a way that we become hostages of these ideas. Our FOMO - or  Fear Of Missing

      It's Foodie Friday and Dishing in Kitchen published an awesome recipe today for a knockout summer appy or lunchtime main that's simple to make, beautiful look at and super-tasty. It's the kind of food I love to eat, make and serve. Get your gazpacho on. Om. The kitchen is where I find my zen. As multipreneurs, it is easy to become overwhelmed, taking multitasking to new levels

      Whiskers, Whispers and Wayback Wednesday

      Remember Old Spice? I'm not talking about the uber-viral transformation of the brand in recent years epitomized by the "Old Spice Guy" suburban-porn style TV commercials (although that was pretty impressive). I'm talking about the way it smelled when men wore it in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The way the Old Spice Old Guys wore it. My grandfather was one of them. Yours was, too, I'll bet. He shaved

      Take Your Sweet Thyme

      As I write this, a batch of heirloom tomatoes are slow-roasting in the oven. It is foggy outside and cool. Leaves on the trees are that goldy-green colour they get at this time of year, especially along muddy riverbanks. It's peaceful. The aroma filling the house is heavenly. The tomatoes are roasting with thyme from the garden, olive oil and garlic. Later they'll be transformed into a Roasted
