    • 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

    • Multipreneurs: Moodling By The Pool

      “The imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient happy idling, dawdling and puttering.” - Brenda Ueland. I would say that multipreneurs need moodling, too. Moodling is a term coined by writer, Brend Ueland in her book So You Want to Write. In it, she describes the state of moodling as a state necessary in order to truly create. Moodling offers a sort of incubation or 'baking

      An Equation Where Work Equals Joy

      One of the questions that frequently comes up in coaching sessions is: How do I discover what I am passionate about? My answer is pretty straightforward, and, in true coaching fashion comes as another question: How do you spend your time when no-one is paying you? There's a passion. What usually follows is brainstorming and a little homework before the next session. For

      Of Alleys and Entrepreneurs

      When I was little, one of my favourite places to play was the alleyway behind our house. It was the sixties, and pretty much everybody had an alleyway. (Not a faux-alleyway either, which seems to be a Johnny-come-lately residential planning response to the blight that is sprawl. Oops. Ranting. Note to self: don't be a ranter). The alley is where I learned to ride my bike, played skipping

      Mindful Monday: Meditation Made Easy

      I was reading James Altucher's book Choose Yourself this morning and in it James relays a story about Gandhi where he tells his compatriots that he needs to set aside one hour a day to do meditation. They exclaim, "Oh no, you can't do that! You are too busy, Gandhi!" They were, after all, trying to free a nation. Ghandi replies, "Well, then. I now need to set aside two hours a day to do

      Dancing at the Edge: The Crossroads of Fear and Excitement

      Multipreneurs are much admired. I don't just say this to be smug. People often marvel at how much we get up to and the sheer number of diverse projects on the go at any one time. For us, it's basically just the state of the nation. How it is. The way we live and work. Most multipreneurs I know are usually finishing a project, starting a project and in the middle of a project (or projects) all

      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
