    Microdosing 101 - Introducing Kathleen Oh

    Microdosing 101 - Introducing Kathleen Oh

    If you have watched the series “9 Perfect Strangers,” then you have been introduced to the concept of micro-dosing. While it wasn't legitimized in this series, the concept was at least introduced so that viewers had an initiation into the thought process. 



    We are not here to tell you that should or should not try it. But today we have the chance to introduce you to Kathleen Oh, and she answers some our questions so that you have an idea what a psilocybin is.



    It’s important to also remember that mushrooms are really good for you. And current research is linking the use of them with more and more efficacy in certain cases, for certain people, with certain mental health concerns.

    Journey to Parenthood - Introducing Kieran Powers

    Journey to Parenthood - Introducing Kieran Powers

    When a decision is made to start a family the last thing in the world you think you will have to navigate is a loss. This is especially true after you have battled cancer and are facing your own mortality every day.



    Today we have the opportunity to introduce you to Kieren Powers. Kieren is the owner of Becoln. She is a certified Grief & Trauma coach. We delve into her history of family creation and talk openly about the darkness she battled as she became a mother. Her mission is to help families navigate their journeys through loss and surrogacy and trauma that honours the hard stuff while finding a path forward to parenthood.



    This Sunday and always, we honour those who have chosen to become and savour the gift of being a mother, even to the children who are no longer earthside.

    Smashing Glass Ceilings (Part 2) with Shelagh Cummins

    Smashing Glass Ceilings (Part 2) with Shelagh Cummins

    In this second part of our conversation with Shelagh Cummins, we have the opportunity to spend a little bit of time talking about how it is OK for women to want to smash their glass ceilings! 



    This week we talk actual numbers. We talk actual statistics. We talk about the amount of money and entrepreneur would need to make for their business in order to be able to take home the amount of revenue that they would like to see in their bank account.  Suffice it to say that you want to be in the 12% she describes, instead of the 88%

    What Am I Pretending Not to Know (Pt. 1) - our chat with Shelagh Cummins

    “Business is a blend of art and science.”



    “What are you pretending not to know that is stopping you from getting the results that you want?”



    These two mind blowing statements are at the root of the conversation that Laurel and I are able to have in part one of our conversation today with business owner and entrepreneur Shelagh Cummins. You do not want to miss learning what this powerful woman has to say when it comes to speaking about the ways women can level up their businesses.

    Championing For Those Who Can't with Robin Read

    Championing For Those Who Can't with Robin Read

    Just because you have not been physically, emotionally, sexually or financially assaulted by a partner doesn’t mean that you can’t appreciate what an overwhelming horror it would be to live in such a situation. 



    Today we talk about this very topic with Robin Read. Robin’s personality is one that attracts people to her just as it is also her personality to want to do whatever she can in her community to make the world a better place. She thrives on supporting organizations in our community, such as Halton Women’s Place, to raise awareness and resources to help women eliminate their fear of being physically and financially trapped in a dangerous space. 



    To learn more about Robin visit her website: www.activeresults.ca and on Instagram @activeresultsco and @socialrobin
