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.

Good Gifts + Merry Sips

The holiday season is in full swing, with parties, presents, and lots of good cheer. There’s still time to find the perfect gifts, but the reason you may be having so much trouble in your search is because we already have too much stuff. So this year we encourage you to think outside of the gift box and give a gift that is sure to be appreciated! (more…)

Book Launch: The Tale of Kale

Five years ago, my daughter Joey wrote a story about my youngest son, Andy, trying kale in its various forms until finally finding one he liked – it took a LOT of trying. It’s called the Tale of Kale.

It’s a timeless story of trial and error with healthy food that all parents will recognize, and I knew that it was something I would eventually develop and publish, in my “free” time. (more…)

IWM: Laura Fraser

We spoke with Laura Fraser, our Director of Development + Good Energy at Borden Communications. Laura began working with us years ago as an intern, and after a stint in corporate advertising, has returned to work with us as Megan prepares to take some time away to be a new mom. Laura shares how we do things differently around here, how she finds balance in life + while working in Lisa’s basement, and the biggest distraction in our office. 

Too Busy to Reply to Emails Right Away?

If so, you’re not alone. It’s a problem almost every entrepreneur we’ve worked with has encountered.  Although we try to respond to every email we receive within a few hours, this isn’t always possible for everyone, including us, at times (although if you work with Lisa, you know that she answers everything really quickly).

IWM : Lucas Solowey

We spoke with Lucas Solowey. Lucas is a passionate advocate for animal protection, delicious plant-based cuisine, and sustainable living, and recently filled in as the Interim General Manager at Toronto Vegetarian Association and ran Toronto’s Veg Food Fest this year (North America’s largest vegetarian food festival!).  (more…)

In the Black

On Black Friday, people are encouraged to over-consume.

We are bombarded with ads and specials that send us into a buying frenzy because it feels as if it’s the only time of year that we will be able to afford the things we want. But, what do we really *need*?

IWM: Zoe Weil

We spoke with Zoe Weil, co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education. Zoe is an author, speaker, educator, and trailblazer changing the world for the better. We found out how she’s spreading good across the world, why we should all be solutionaries, and why right now is the very best time to learn humane education. (more…)

What’s the Point of Blogging?

If you’ve worked with us before, we’ve probably told you to start a blog.

We get it. Small and medium-sized businesses simply have a lot on their plates! With everything you need to get done, why would you even consider starting a blog?

Here are 9 good reasons why: (more…)
