Enjoy the Marketing ride!! business Sep 24, 2016

These days I spend most of my time in my marketing brain. Campaigns, launches, products, offers and so much more.

And to make these happen I need to spend time diving into my tech brain.

In my past life I was a programmer. I have had sales booths at Pharmacy conferences selling my software when...

Time stood still.. life Aug 24, 2016

Today, for a few minutes I actually experienced what 'peace' feels like.

For me it was silent and still. Quiet, calm, colours of light brown and yellow. No thoughts.

Time stood still. Emptiness. Present. Safe. Enough. One.

Do year view calendars not work for you too? business Aug 11, 2016

Is it just me or do 'year view calendars' not work for you too?

When I say calendars I mean the way years are typically laid out. Flip ones by month do not work for me because the weeks are broken bridging months.

The big wall calendars either have all the days of the week across the top...

Heart problems at 24 business life Jul 31, 2016

Heart problems at 24.

Back when I was 24 I was suffering from stress induced angina. My heart was in physical pain and it was sore, tingly and the aching grew whenever I thought about 'work'.

I felt trapped. It was one of my first full time jobs and I remember feeling like I was loaded with all...

Life sucks too... life Jul 22, 2016

Life sucks too. I just want to share an insight. I am super lucky to know many many super high achievers. Can I tell you a secret. They also experience the equal and opposite on the other end of the spectrum.

Emotional lows. 9 or 10 times this week I have had very intimate personal back and...

Follow and trust your heart business life Jul 17, 2016

I quit my job to run around the world chasing little yellow fluffy things!

Back in 1997 I was writing business software and enterprise databases. The software was controlling billions of $ in assets and everyday I was extracting data and creating reports to be used that day in government...

Are we at a choice point? business life Jul 13, 2016

Are we at a choice point?

I feel like we might be. This Pokemon thingy is really making me wonder about if we as a society are getting further or closer to nature.

The ripple effect of being further from nature is disconnection, isolation, stress anxiety, feeling lost and many more personal...

I am not the only one! life Jun 12, 2016

I am not the only one!

When growing up I always struggled making conversation in crowds. I didn't like noisy places like nightclubs or typical bars or pubs.

I'd always prefer a place like a restaurant or smaller groups where you can actually hear each other and talk about interesting stuff ...

Enjoy the trailer! business Jun 04, 2016

This has been my major project for the last 3 years. Like any big project it comes with big commitment and various sacrifices and risks. I can recall waking up on 2 different Valentines Days away from Ellysia. (Even today on our 10 year anniversary I am on the opposite side of the globe.)

What are we really buying? business life Apr 12, 2016

I'm sitting here in a raw, gluten free, vegan cafe. All the food is activated, drinks with amazing kefir etc.

So, it occurred to me that this small cafe kitchen probably pumps out more nutrition in one day than many many 'food' mega factories do in 1 year.

So the question... What are we really...

This afternoon was weird... life Apr 02, 2016

So, this afternoon was weird...

I was ripping up cardboard boxes putting them in the bin and suddenly there was a coin at the bottom of it. A Canadian coin. No problems, it was weird, the box just came from the hardware and there was a foreign coin in it...

However next, I was going through my...
