Facing Defeat

Hello Darlings, It has been weeks since I first wrote this post. I was in a twilight zone. So desperately I wanted to share everything that was happening but had so little courage to do so. Now that everything is easing slowly, I have the will to share a moment in my life that may have been one of the toughest thus far.  Why you may wonder? Because vulnerability takes courage and strength. We all go through difficult times but socially we are expected to put on a fun facade. Regardless of what we feel, we never want to allow…

Sleep Routine and Productivity

Hello Darlings, People are usually under impression that entrepreneurs require little sleep while staying continuously productive. Nothing could be further from the truth. We’ve all read those articles highlighting entrepreneurial lifestyle of waking up at 5am and completing all the tasks before the rest of the world wakes up. While for some it might be true, for others it’s an unrealistic standard. Most spend countless hours late into the night working which has great implications on their health and longterm productivity. It is especially true in the starting stages of the business.

Complaining about being busy and working all the time has become an incredibly widespread phenomenon, and one that is impossible to sustain. I’ve learned it the hard way. You cannot perform at your best by being constantly stressed. It’s important to me to maintain a…

January is here – also known as the month of resolutions – and at the strike of midnight on New Years Eve, we often decide to magically transform our lives in the upcoming year. Social media’s trending with “New Year, New Me” promises, gym membership sales increase and we make attempts to visit only the healthy isles of the grocery store. 2018 will be the year it is all going to come together we tell ourselves! It will be the year we read more, travel more,…

Becoming a Single Working Dog Mom

Hello Darlings, A single working dog mom – yours truly! As much as I despise that term, it does categorize me fairy well. It took me a year of coming to terms with that title and not feeling like a complete failure. And after two weeks of dog sitting a second pup recently, I finally came to realize that I’ve got this. It’s a full adjustment having to look after someone outside of myself and they say that a millennial just can’t. Prior to welcoming Luna into my life, a favourite line from just about everyone was, “Say good- bye…
