Sometimes falling on your face is the best way to grow as a person. One of the things you may have noticed is that I haven’t been posting here regularly for quite some time. The reason for this is that this site was my first attempt to create a blog. Soon after launching it, I realized I had made a lot of mistakes in how I set it up…
Today I saw my naturopath and good friend, Dr. Meghan Walker. Meghan is somewhat of a legend – she has her own naturopathic practice, she is the CEO of a start-up and is a busy mother of young children. She is one of the most successful people I know and she always has a million balls in the air…so when she gives me tips, I listen.
I met with a friend of mine for coffee last week. I hadn’t seen her since university and it was so great to catch up. She’s an amazing person – the kind of person that walks in the room and everybody notices. She is tall, stylish, and looks like a model. Even more importantly, she’s intelligent, funny, humble, and super cool – the kind of person that makes you think: “How is she so cool? I wish I could be that cool.”
Recently, I watched a great talk by a multi-million dollar earner in my company who talked about the power of a dream board. He has a rags to riches story. He talked about how, as a time of extreme debt, he created a dream board about owning a vacation property in Hawaii and even brought sand from Hawaii to his office. He downloaded Hawaiian music and surrounded himself with pictures of Hawaii and his dream property. Sure enough…this dream board helped propel him to continue making his business profitable and he ended up buying that dream property within several years.
I work full-time, I have two young children and I am completing my PhD in law in my free time. On paper, I don’t need to add anything to my already very full plate so when my sister asked me to look at starting a side business with her, I was thinking: “Are you kidding me?”
