Life Happens For Us - Not To Us
The other night, my Husband came home, gave me a hug and then dropped a letter on the table. It was a lay off notice. With my businesses forced to close during covid, I had to fight hard not to slip back into depression and worry. Want to know how I did it and one thing my brother helped me discover that will hopefully save my businesses? Then listen to the podcast!

We All Fall Down - It’s The Getting Back Up That Really Counts
I’m back! I know in the last podcast, I said I would be here daily. But then I wasn’t. It was because I allowed myself to get overwhelmed by looking at the big picture instead of the small steps needed to move my business ahead. Included in this episode is a poem a friend sent me that allowed me to pull out of the depression and overwhelm. I learned important things about myself and some valuable lessons. You can hear about those lessons here and how you can implement them for yourself!
I’m struggling with Covid-19. If you are too, you’re not alone. Let’s do this together
Yesterday, November 6, 2020, more covid restrictions were announced in Alberta. It has put my business back into shut down. In this episode I give the background on my businesses, what’s happened so far, how this new shut down had affected me and my businesses. I describe how my businesses have fallen through the cracks of government programs which has left me frustrated. After grieving this second shut down of my business, I got ready to stand up and fight - to get resourceful to figure out how to save my businesses and everything I own. I talk about the journey I’m on and what strategies I’ve come up with. Each day I’ll share my progress and what I’ve learned. You are welcome to come on the journey with me! If you are affected the same way, I hope this helps. I feel your pain. You are not alone.

Surviving Covid 19 Mentally - There Are No Failures in Life - Only Lessons Learned
The longer Covid-19 lasts, the more some of us feel defeated and possibly feel like a failure. But none of us are failures! We are just learning lessons. In this episode I provide solutions I have learned to overcome feeling like a failure and feeling defeated to now feeling hope for the future. I discuss how life is full of decisions and the decisions we make right now will shape our life in the future. Remember, life is a sequence of one decisions. Which ones will you make? If you are feeling alone, please know that you are not alone. We’re all together in this together.
Ducks Quack - Eagles Soar - Stop making excuses and start living!
This is my very first podcast! So it’s a bit rough. Here I share a story that has inspired me to stop making excuses in life and look for the possibilities that I hadn’t noticed before. I tell the original Ducks Quack - Eagles Soar by Harvey McKay and how that story has inspired me, changed my way of thinking and my life. This is the beginning of my journey (even though I didn’t recognize it at the time) of self-improvement and becoming the person I am today. Come along on the journey with me!
