This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Our Stories

Our Back to School Roundup

Labour Day is not only the final weekend of summer holidays, but it also signals the beginning of something new for so many – it can be a new grade, a new work schedule, a new family routine, or even just a time to commit or recommit to healthier habits. (more…)

The Myth of Blissful Work

How fortunate I am to run my own business (it’s been over 20 years now), and spend much of my time working with clients who are doing truly good things, and living and working with passion. I love it. But, it’s also challenging. It’s very challenging. There are ups and downs, and most days are unpredictable as an entrepreneur. (more…)

Tips for Healthier Travel: Airplane Eats + Drinks

The best way to deal with airplane travel eats and drinks and get the best service? Serve yourself! Between waiting for an hour or more for the smallest glass of water (or other drink) in a plastic cup, or having the choice between overpriced, awful eats, I find it best to just bring-my-own-everything. I can eat and drink what makes me feel good, and enjoy it when I want. (more…)

Really Happy Birthday Parties

Birthday celebrations happily come around every year. While we should celebrate every day, our birthdays are often a time where we gather in larger groups, invite people over, have parties for our kids and we can enjoy all kinds of celebrations with friends and family, while also being gentler on the planet. It’s easy (and trendy) to simplify and do more of a good thing. There are so many ways to make a big difference, while having a great time together and if it’s a kids birthday party, you are also setting a good example for them and inspiring other kids, and their parents too.  (more…)

A Self-Evaluation for Entrepreneurs

This is a checklist for myself as much as it’s for you. Although much of it applies to everyone, especially those who work at a desk, if you are an entrepreneur and work intensely, you likely need signs, signals, alarms and life forces to interrupt your work flow in order to take care of yourself. I hope that the following helps to make your days as healthy and as effective as possible. (more…)

IWM: Alain Menard

We interviewed Alain Menard, founder of Green Beaver. We found out what makes Green Beaver products smell so good, which products he uses (or doesn’t use!) every day, and the coolest thing to watch in their factory. (more…)

Sharing Photos with Google Drive

We use social media every day at work (and always advise our clients to use it too). Mostly, this advice gets met with sighs and skepticism. After all, social media can seem like a big time commitment in the beginning – especially if it requires coordinating several employees. As a result, we’re constantly looking for ways to make the process smoother.

For sharing photos internally and with clients, we like Google Drive. (more…)
