Podcast Launch; from terrified to dream come true!

You know those moments in life when you can’t quite believe how lucky you are? Last week when we launched the #HIHPodcast was one of those moments. This project has been a long time in the making, almost two years ago to the day. Three episodes never made it off my desktop because life took a bit of a turn, one that knocked the wind out of me, and as I was struggling in my personal life it trickled in to every aspect of my being: work, social life, passion projects, self-identity and motivation. Needless to say, a lot was put on the back-burner while I dealt with this big change, it took a long time to rebuild to regain my footing, but guess what? I did.

How I Get Sh*t Done: Chloe Wilde

Do you have a role model you look up to? Maybe it’s your mom, or your grandma, or it could even be your best friend, or a mentor who has helped you in a sport, a job, or pretty much anything in life. I have a handful of really great role models (yes mom you’re one of them!) and today I get to interview one for a very special edition of HIGSD. April marks the first anniversary of ‘How I Get Sh*t Done,” and it wouldn’t have existed without this woman, our HIH founder Chloe Wilde. Chloe has been a role model to me longer than she probably knows. And when I finally got to meet her in person at the HIH meet up in summer of 2018,  I felt like I was going to cry because it was like I had known her forever. She was an absolute delight to meet and chat with, and to this day, we still keep in touch and support each other via social media. This week, I got the chance to chat with Chloe and find out everything from what her morning routine looks like to the next exciting HIH venture coming to the site soon!

Imposter Syndrome

This past week I found myself heading to the airport, not for a junket, or a red carpet premiere, or anything related to my day job at Bell for that matter, but instead to moderate a half hour program in our nation’s capital celebrating International Development Week with key individuals making waves on the quest (a non-negotiable if you ask me) towards gender equality. Through my partnership with FINCA Canada, I was welcomed there with open arms in both French and English, by government officials, NGO leaders and incredibly inspiring youth from across the country in an  area I felt more like a fish out of water than a professional host.

Snowboarding > SAD

Yes, there are moments of sunshine and blue skies, and those special days where there’s a snow-like blanket that covers the concrete jungle we call home... But sometimes, it’s just damn gloomy. That gloominess can seep into your mood, and for some, it can result in SAD; seasonal affective disorder. Even if you aren’t diagnosed with SAD, I think it’s safe to say we all get affected by the winter blues throughout our Canadian freeze-out.
