As I journey into this career as a consultant I have started to notice many things. For example, I wrote a proposal, a 3 million dollar one, and the funder, cough cough aka the government, took my ideas and put it into another proposal. At first I was angry. Ok, you didn’t like one ofContinue reading “Proposal Writing”
I should mention… I love debates. Recently… a friend and I got into a debate of unions vs. Non-union employment and companies. He is pro union! His argument is unions have better benefits. Yes, they do. His other argument is that they set wages that others follow. Again, yes. Here is my counter argument. UnionsContinue reading “Unions vs. Non-Unions”
Got an email from Tom Bilyeu… (one of my idols) he said… 92% of goals fail… not because you don’t have a plan… but because you have a fixed mindset which means unless it is growth focused… you are doomed to fail. He said in order to improve, you must fix the foundation aka yourContinue reading “Over Confidence”
Recently a Facebook friend posted a comment on how upset she was that Lebron signed a contract for $85 million and how healthcare workers are not paid enough. I was going to engage her on Facebook but decided to blog about it instead. My response: Depends on how you look at it. Canada has aContinue reading “Salaries”

In reflecting and talking about trying to start a business in finances, I can’t help but hear all the voices in my head remind me, you are not big unless you are the first person someone calls because they thought of you. Turns out a close relative recently lost his job. His company decided toContinue reading “Life Lesson – You Are Not Big Unless You Are The First Person Someone Calls”
Mike started at 6am! If I wanted the truck, I would have to get up and drop him off to work. As a nightcrawler, 6am is way too early for me. We were almost late in dropping off Mike. As it turns out, the part of Nisku where his shop is, has no maps asContinue reading “Caged in a Hotel – Day 2- Monday”
When Mike asked me if I would go up to Edmonton with him for a week, I was torn. I knew during covid, I wouldn’t be able to explore much, but I also knew how bored he would be–so I joined him. (I also, secretly wanted to see if I could live in a hotelContinue reading “Caged in a Hotel – Day 1 – Sunday”
