How to Deal with Negative and Critical People

Negative people and critics are everywhere and expected, you can run, but you can’t hide from them. And no matter how you choose to live your life — single or in a relationship, whether you work a corporate job or become an entrepreneur; whether you choose to have children or choose not to have children; if you eat meat or are a vegetarian, if you drink coffee or tea, whatever you do, there is someone that will judge you for it. And the more successful you are or the more popular you become in life, the more haters will show up. Continue reading

Leadership Through Wisdom and Integrity

Leaders have vision, they think outside of the box, they are sharp and quick on their feet looking into the future making intelligent decisions and usually have the craziest ideas. But even the most brilliant, quickest, smartest leader is not the most effective without grace, wisdom and integrity. Great intellect has no guarantee of good judgement and good judgement comes from experience turned into wisdom. When leaders come from a place of integrity, it comes from the core of who they truly are and when they put themselves out there it takes a lot of courage and that also comes with a whole new level of responsibility and accountability and respect.

Leading with conviction trumps intellect and one’s character shines through and is  much more successful when connecting with people especially having a strong moral base with genuine values who stand above the rest. Trust is the key when leading. When people feel cared for the connection is so much stronger and that trust grows willingly without the need to convince. When people trust you their fear is minimized and they gain admiration and appreciation for you. Continue reading

The word ‘leader’ has only been used to celebrate the history and footprint that people of this incredible quality have left in the world’s history books; but what about the leaders that are in our own country, our own community, our network of friends, and right in our family that have influenced, inspired and have touched our hearts in similar ways, not on a global scale, but in a loving way where we were moved by it and became a better person because of it and it changed us for the better completely. Often we do not give ourselves enough credit for the leadership that we perform on a daily basis because of the leadership gap. Continue reading

Calgary – The Community City

After being born and raised in Calgary and feeling like I had experienced all there was, I knew that there was more to life than this little bubble that so many of my friends lived in, so I ventured west to Vancouver in 2010 and experienced something I had never experienced before and what I was longing for, and that was an urban living lifestyle; I was surrounded by people, style, food, community and culture. I worked for Miss World Canada as their business developer and I ran a business consulting company and soon grew tired of the rat race for acquiring new business.
