The hardest part I found in doing this was an idea that I needed to help those who weren't positive, this was a mistake, we cannot help those who don't realize they need help nor can we begin to assume we know what is needed in another's journey.

Diversity is a strength not a weakness. __ In his acceptance speech Justin Trudeau said Canada is a country strong not in spite of our differences but because of them. He also said We know in our bones that Canada was built by people from all corners of the world who worship every faith who belong to every culture who speak every language. We believe in our hearts that this countrys unique diversity is a blessing. __ It is clear in no uncertain terms that diversity is not only appreciated…

Make the decision every day to put in the time to make a change. Recently when I was in the locker room at work a coworker asked me how did I really get in shape. For those of you that dont know I recently dropped about 25lbs and competed in my first bikini competition. You want to know what I said? My response was weeks of hard work. It wasnt something that happened overnight and I didnt do the latest fad diet but rather making the decision every day to put in the time to make a change…

Life is like art- it takes time effort vision and commitment to build sculpt and create. No one ever said it had to be perfect. Learning is a messy process. When you figure out how to stop judging and start celebrating your perceived failures becomes learning successes. Avoid identifying with the mistake and instead use it as a tool to calibrate your future approach. Don't stop just because things get messy. Figure out a better way for next time and eventually it will dial in with…

Creatives have to know how it works what makes it tick and how to make it better and/ or more beautiful. __ We make everything complicated. This is true for artists that I know as well. A graphic designer friend of mine once said Everyone else sees the watch but you see the gears and I found that this definitely rings true for most creative people. Simple easy ideas are always viewed as more complex. __ This makes it difficult to just enjoy the simple pleasures in life at times but also…

Love thy neighbor. __ I feel like this shouldnt even need to be said but apparently it does. We are a diverse nation. Its more important now than its ever been before to support the many colors genders religions and sexualities that characterize this beautiful country that we ALL call home. Because no one deserves to be ripped from their homes or stripped of their dignity because of who they love what race they are or the actions (all be it horrible actions) of a few people who happen to…

Life is about the journey not the destination. I think we look at life as a series of destinations. Starting at childhood we see images and hear about how life should go. We should go to school find a career get married and eventually have kids. For some the timeline may look a little different but the point I am trying to make is for each of us from the time we are little have an idea of how we think our life should go. In my opinion its one of the central reasons that we as a society…

In 2007 before TSOQ...before meeting Wifee...I was asked where I saw myself in 10-15 years... I said I would love a shop on Queen street west. I was 22 at the time. I was so specific and certain not because I did a whole bunch of research on the area but because I fell in love with Queen west when I was 18 while studying fashion in London. I would drive 2hours every weekend to fabric shop because I made a new outfit every time I went out (which was every weekend) and it made me happy. But…

Looking upon the photos my wife took of our girls and my nephew enjoying a day of fun in the outdoors I am reminded...There is an innocence in those little ones that grace our days as mothers and as fathers that is irreplaceable. For too few years we get to experience it's grandeur it's truth it's spirit. Passing in the blink of an eye we see them go from total dependence to self-reliance. They are here to teach us not us teach them so says the Lord. Learn from their innocence their goodness…

Search for human meaning in the sky. I've said this many times entrepreneurship is an epic inner journey. It's a journey that can speed your life's journey along a path. That inner journey is as unique to everyone as the tools we each use to help us on our way. I enjoy exploring different methods of reflection as a way to inquire and be. Some of the 'tools' I find useful include a journal mantras affirmations meditation yoga oracle cards personality tests and even astrology. I'm not…
