Welcome to my blog.
I’ve always found comfort in words. As a child, I was a voracious reader and had an intuitive inkling that I would always put pen to paper. That passion only grew. During my entrepreneurial journey, I had a 14-year stint writing a business column for the Whistler Question newspaper. After that, I’ve written feature stories for the Pique Newsmagazine. My blogs are also on YOU Inc, Small Business BC and Women’s Enterprise Centre.
Through my writing, I can share my experience as an entrepreneur having built two successful businesses. Starting, growing and selling my first business was a definite career highlight. After that, as a coach and mentor at Lighthouse, I can blend my stories with those of my clients (confidentially, of course) – the challenges, the hurdles, the victories and everything in between. What works. What doesn’t work.
So, please enjoy those stories. On these virtual pages, you will find my blogs on three categories: Work, Wisdom and Wealth. You can scroll through all of them below or click on the categories to take you directly to topics in that area. You’ll find subjects that cover everything from strategic planning, working from a home office to grief, financial wellness and being sober curious. My approach to writing is filled with facts, but also wrapped in whimsical theories and frank honesty.
But, writing is not a solo act because it should inspire ideas and conversation. It’s not lost on me that I often see things differently than others. So, tell me what you think. Share in the comments or reach out anytime.
Oh and if you’re keen to guest blog, please let me know. I’m willing to share quality content from experienced writers if it fits with Lighthouse’s messaging and our target audience. Just send me your bio and a sample of your blog and we can connect from there.
FEATURE STORY – Pique Newsmagazine, May 31, 2018 Perhaps you’ve heard the adage that the way to fulfil your purpose is by following your passion. Find your bliss. Do what you love and you’ll never work another day in your life. Unfortunately, people are often left disappointed when they fail to secure a job that lights them up. But let’s face it: dream jobs don’t always pay the bills. That’s why a growing trend in the business landscape has emerged: side hustles. In simple terms, a side hustle is a job that brings in extra income and differs from your main employment. And although you might think our little resort town is readily familiar with sideline jobs—after all, the high cost of living here means many are forced into working multiple jobs just to make
