    Mental Health & Wellness

    Mental Health & Wellness

    Improving our mental health can have profound and lasting impacts on our lives, the lives of those around us, and our communities. In Canada, it is estimated that 20% of Canadians experience problems with their mental health in any given year, and half of the population has faced some level of mental health issues by the time they turn 40.
    In this episode I share tips and strategies that I've used over the years to improve my own mental health, which I feel may help you on your journey as well.

    A Life of Opportunity

    Recently I've noticed several associates of mine complaining about a lack of opportunities, but then failing to capitalize on them when they appear.
