Mmmm…I LOVE Turtles!

It’s been a minute since I’ve talked about food. It seems there are a million other things occupying our time and minds these days. And yet…. While I may not be talking as much about food in this moment where the pandemic and the economy and Black Lives Matter and police brutality and “tearing down…

It’s About TRUST.

This is the most incredible teaching I have ever experienced on the topic of trust by one of my very favourite mentors, Brené Brown. Please, please carve out the 13 minutes to watch.

Let’s PLAY!

ANGER.

Last year, I was interviewing someone for my video podcast. These interviews are special because the stories tend to be incredibly real, raw and deeply personal. About 30 minutes into the interview, to my shock and horror, I could see that my computer hadn’t been plugged in properly and was about to die. I discreetly…
