    • Values Not Age Unite Us

      Demographics have been long used as a tool by which to predict behavior and differentiate between attitudes of population groups by age, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, or geography. In the marketing arena, demographics have been kind of a holy grail for predicting consumer buying patterns and targeting products and services. In the 21st century where we navigate the tricky intersection of analogue and digital communication, the generation gap is used as a way to explain the relative adaptation of different groups to digital communication tools. We live in a complex world. The

    • Sharing the Sourdough Love

        Back in January, pre-pandemic, my dear friend Fred Armstrong traveled across the Salish Sea to visit us for  a weekend.  Along with his sister Terry, and bountiful good humour, he brought me some sourdough starter. He knows I am a devoted cook, and the kitchen is my happy place. Learning to make my own bread has been  a joy-- it has also been a comfort-- both nourishing to the body and soothing to the soul. Since then, I've experimented a lot, and continue to practice and play. I've begun splitting Fred's starter, first creating a batch of rye starter for a change in flavour

    • 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

      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

      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
