Imposter Syndrome

People Are People Are People Today, I want to take a moment to talk about the elephant in the room. The thing that many clients, colleagues, and co-conspirators of mine experience, but shy away from discussing. That-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named. Imposter syndrome. There, I said it! It’s out there, in the open. Now, let’s dig in! At the end of the day, no … Read More

Ever since my early university days, I’ve made a habit of working out a couple of times a week. I certainly have seen my fair share of different gyms, workout styles, fitness dynamics, and of course, gym stereotypes. Now, I’m going to take a moment to issue a warning: if you don’t like stereotypes, don’t continue reading. I will be … Read More

business battles

When I open my closet some mornings, it seems odd that my wardrobe doesn’t simply consist of camouflage and military fatigues. It feels like I’m suiting up for business battles to wage war against bad marketing, deadlines, and the competition.

One common complaint you often hear leveled at “today’s generation” and “millennials” is that we spend more time on our phones than we do living real life.

Lately, I’ve been able to take a step back from my business to spend time with my family. Something I’ve really grown attached to are the outings we’ve been able to enjoy around Calgary. We spend the day out walking, biking, and exploring all the different nooks and crannies of our beautiful city. Even in family time, I still find … Read More

Workplace Abuse and Entrepreneurship: The Warning Signs

The Marketing GirlBusiness2 Comments

workplace abuse

Whenever I visit a doctor’s office, a bank, or even a fast-food drive-thru, I’ll often encounter signs that state plainly, “Abusive behaviour or language toward our staff will not be tolerated.” I always appreciate that those signs are there to protect those public-facing employees and staff members.
