What is your story

My life has been an exciting adventure! I’m one of four girls raised on a 5-acre farmette, and we sure loved our animals growing up.  I was always daddy’s little helper doing chores, mowing, and assisting with changing the oil, etc.  I started babysitting at a young age for a couple that owned a shoe store.  Once I was able to drive, they asked me to start working in their store. They taught me so much about sales, which started me out in my sales career.  While I was working at the shoe store, I met my husband, Michael.  We got married a year later, and I was only 19 and have now been married 36 years.  We had a rough start in our second year of marriage; we lost our first home to a house fire.  Thank the Lord we didn’t have any children at the time but did have Labradors that woke us up at 3 am in the morning.  It was so scary, and we barely got out.  It was a life-changing experience for...

10 Things You Should Know About Living Wills

business Nov 22, 2021

It's Thanksgiving this week!

What is your favorite side dish? While I've always been partial to mashed potatoes, a great rice or green bean casserole can definitely steal the show. While you are enjoying your meal and time with your family or friends, I encourage you to reflect back on these last couple of years. 

How is life different, how would you want life to be different, and how can you start taking the steps to make a desired change? One thing you may have considered, but not yet taken action on, is how you would like the very end of your life to look. Who is making health care decisions for you when and if you cannot, and what are those decisions you would like them to make? It's not always easy or fun to think about, but it's so very important. 

This week we're talking about living wills and how to detail your wishes regarding procedures, medications, and treatments you would want, or NOT want, to prolong your life. 

May you have a grateful...

#ThriveThursday: Melissa Deally, Integrative Health Practitioner

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I am one of the lucky ones to have led a very blessed life, it doesn’t mean it was without struggle, but I look back on all aspects with gratitude because it has made me who I am today. I was born in Australia, raised in Japan, and moved to Canada 30 years ago for what I thought would be Whistler's season and have never left! I was the oldest of 4 kids, and at 13, my father suddenly died of blood clots after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. I became the second parent, as my sisters were on 3 and 5. I grew up fast but somehow had the wisdom to appreciate that while losing my Dad sucked (as I was a Daddy’s girl), he was still with me, sitting on my shoulder, guiding me. I also appreciated that I had been fortunate to have him in my life for 13 years; my youngest sister only had him for 3 years. 2 years after his passing, we moved back to Australia; I poured myself into my studies and...

10 Tips for Communication Technology: Best Practices for Solopreneurs!

 Article Written By: Christine Rothdeutsch

10 Tips for Communication Technology: Best Practices for Solopreneurs!

  1. Always use a business email address. A business email address is an email address that uses your own business domain name. You'll need to create the domain first, then create the mailbox to match. Free email addresses tend to land in spam. Email addresses associated with your domain give you a professional appearance. Some web hosts provide free email addresses.   
  2. When sending emails to multiple recipients at one time, use an email service provider. The email must contain an easy link to unsubscribe.   
  3. Maintain your contact follow-through system with a CRM (contact relationship management). A CRM for individual follow-through is different from a CRM for mass marketing. Choose a CRM that enables you to track your contact through your pipeline.   
  4. Manage your inbox with filters and folders. Filter important emails...

#ThriveThursday: Jean Kuhn, Serial Entrepreneur and Author

What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?

I knew I wasn’t going back to a job I hated once my first baby was born. Over 35 years of being an entrepreneur, I have started, closed, and sold a lot of different businesses. It took me about 17 years to really figure it all out. In 2002, I bought a bankrupt retail brick and mortar business and turned it around in 12 months. I brought the company profitable and added $100,000 to the bottom line. In 2006, I bought another bankrupt retail brick and mortar company and turned it around in less than 12 months, again adding over $100,000 to the bottom line. 

 

What message do you promote?

I help business owners turnaround a stagnant business and increase their cash flow fast.

 

In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?

I’m seen as a leader. I speak to groups all over the country, but at home, I’m seen as the person you want to talk to about what strategy your...
