Recommended Resources

The  Recommended Resources  series has been published on this blog since we transferred it from the  Brummet's Muse  biweekly newsletter that ran for 6 years or so. When we closed it down, we decided that sharing resources was just too awesome not to continue. With this series, Dave and I have the pleasure of sharing some great resources which can include - positive impact organizations and events, citizen science projects and links to helpful articles.  Feel free to check out their websites, and perhaps send them a note of appreciation for what they do. It would, of course, be fantastic if you see a way to network with them or get involved some how, or possibly share their information with your networks. Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters has a passion for conservation and the works with many industries, individuals and organizations involved in sustainable fishing and hunting. Seniors Outreach & Resource Centre provides support and links service

World Of Writing - Author Interview

One of my favourite blogging activities is hosting interviews. Here, I get to interview publicists, retailers, marketing specialists, publishers, authors, podcast hosts, magazine editors, entrepreneurs.... and others. It is fun to be in a position to share their work here, but it has also been a great way to bond with them, get to know them better and strengthen networking ties. Today I'm happy to share the following  World of Writing - Author Interview I met Sarah Butland just a few weeks ago in fact - during some networking activities, when I learned that she has a small blog,  writes in fiction, short story and some nonfiction genres too. I asked her to share a little about herself, and she tells us that she is " an artist, thriving mother of one, a reacher towards both people and dreams ".  When describing her writing career she has this to say: " I am a freelance writer, an author who feels loved by enough readers to make it worthwhile, and a discombobulated con

Transformational Living

I want to talk a little bit today about developing a growth mindset - the mental ability to consciously choose to improve. In this mind set we want to learn, we yearn to be proved wrong so that we can no longer be mistaken. We want to be enlightened. We want to overcome the challenge or find an alternate route to our goal. This is the growth mindset. We don't mind putting in the work, taking the course, doing the research in order to make the new goal materialize. We put in the work knowing it plants seeds of change that if nurtured will grow into something special. Many of us are making resolutions to live more consciously, more proactive - to leave a legacy of positive change behind us. We have developed the need, the desire to see this in every aspect of our lives - not just at home, or just at work or as a consumer.
