    How To Move Through Grief & Regain Balance

    How To Move Through Grief & Regain Balance

    This is something that is very near and dear to me because I was incredibly impacted by grief years ago when my brother passed. The emotions, thoughts, fears and physical sensations can be overwhelming and scary, but if you begin to see grief for what it truly is, the bodies natural response to "change" you can let it run its course and not get stuck in it, but rather come out having a better understanding of how the mind and body work. 

    In this episode, I share my experience with grief and the "ONE" thing that helped me completely pivot and honor and move through my grief. I also offer tips on what we can naturally do to help us move through the grief and regain the balance. I also felt, it was important for me to share this as I found many around me struggling with the recent death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and the other individuals involved in the helicopter crash, that I felt like I wanted to share my experience and hopefully through it, provide help and value to those who are struggling at the moment. 

     I hope you find value and most importantly are able to form a new relationship with the grieving process.

    Wishing you the best of health!

    Balancing Your Finances with Mick Nijher, CPA

    Balancing Your Finances with Mick Nijher, CPA

    This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my oldest friends and more like a brother, Mick Nijher. CPA.

    We discussed the importance of financial balance and how we can start the conversation around finances and begin to take control over them and not let them have control over us. We discussed how finances can be a very stressful topic, but how the stress around money and finances once understood and educated can be relieved. 

    In addition, we discuss what it really means to take out a credit card and how they can be rewarding and some of the do's and don'ts around buying your first home.

    Finally - we discuss how important it is to have a plan around money/finances and getting in the habit of doing a monthly budget which helps you know where your money is going and if you are in alignment with your financial goals.
