I LOVED this advice to “work close to the bottom line.” So smart, no matter what field you’re in, and I really liked her range of examples.

I really really liked the book Burnout by Emily & Amelia Nagoski. Really smart, tangible advice about dealing with stress for modern humans.

Oprah has a new podcast! She’s bringing back some of the best episodes of the original show – and I couldn’t be happier. I grew up watching The Oprah Show every single day after school and I can’t wait to revisit some of the stories that have stuck with me all this time.

Speaking of podcasts, I’ve recently been enjoying this new one I learned about called The Slowdown, which shares a poem every weekday. Hat tip to Rework for mentioning it in their episode about poetry at work!

I found this episode of The Daily about the coronavirus very informative and factual without being fear-mongering.

Nurture: Spring 2020 registrations open this weekend! I’m so inspired by the group of women on the team this time (and every time) and can’t wait for May.

On my business blog this week I’m sharing five companies that really inspire me for the way they bring their values into their businesses!


This week actually did NOT go by in a flash, it was slow for once! After a very busy month in February, I’m finding March to be a lot quieter so far. I kind of need the time to recuperate, so I’m not complaining! This week I spent a lot of time thinking ahead and planning out future projects, exploring new ideas, and just taking it easy. It feels good! This weekend I have some family stuff, and Sonja is taking me on a surprise date which is so fun! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.

Excellent advice here from Laura Vanderkam: start by starting. You’ll learn so much from just seeing what happens.

This week I’ve been absolutely loving this song by Billie Eilish. I also really enjoyed this video of her and Finneas explaining their songwriting process. I find them fascinating!

Obviously extremely into this video where Taylor Swift becomes a drag king. SUCH a cool transformation.

Suffice it to say I’ve been ogling the Golden Rescue Instagram account like crazy lately. That’s all I’ll say for now!

I was extremely inspired that the jury voted to convict Harvey Weinstein in the face of complex and nuanced testimony. This was a great recap of the trial.

Had a great and easy time using Turo to book a car for the retreat! Not an affiliate link, it was just super fun to rent a car using their platform.

The most incredible inspiration I experienced this week was working with everyone who attended my first business retreat! I am so very inspired by Amber of Creating Light Studio, Mira Dineen, Kate of Craft Uncommon, Dimple Mukherjee, Mel of Sunday’s CompanySam of Cobblestone, and Sonja of Nurture Retreats.


I’ve been tired this week post-retreat! I took Monday off, but had a lot of client sessions the last couple of days so I haven’t fully had a chance to recover. But it was such a WONDERFUL experience. I am so happy and can’t wait to see the shifts that happen for everyone who was there. If you want a peek behind the scenes, you can see all the story highlights from the weekend right here! This weekend, I’m hoping to take it easy, do lots of sleeping, a bit of reading, and catch up on the chores I definitely didn’t do all week! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.

If you haven’t already seen them, Benito Skinner’s sketches about dating the astrological signs are hilarious and pretty on point.

I started watching Magic for Humans this week and it’s such a sweet, funny show with lots of ACTUAL MAGIC which I am always here for.

I don’t follow this exact method, but there were some pieces in this productivity strategy (called Monday Hour One) that I resonated with.

My friend Mel is offering this beautiful gift box called the Lovers’ Box, full of lovely botanical products to bring you and a sweetheart closer together. I recently received her Winter Open Seasons box and it has been so wonderful.

A very helpful and accurate rundown of catching feelings, by enneagram type. I also liked this one about how the types feel connected.

I was lucky enough to present at the Radford Summit this week, and even luckier to get a gift bag of some of their products! I am now 100% obsessed with this moisturizer and this lip tint glow.

I signed up for a tax prep session with New School and I’m feeling SO RELIEVED already about my taxes for this year. Bless them.

I loved attending my friend Or’s intuition card workshop last weekend! It was such a lovely and peaceful afternoon.


I didn’t do a ton of internet-ing this week because it has been a busy one! As mentioned, I was speaking at a company summit which took a lot of prep and was super fun. And of course I’m also gearing up for the retreat next week which is so exciting! This weekend I’m excited to take a little bit of much-needed downtime, head home for a fam jam, watch some movies, read a bit. Next weekend is going to be amazing but full-on, and I want to keep my energy up for it! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.

Although I was pretty disappointed in how the Senate trial played out, I did find this interview with Mitt Romney about his voting decisions very interesting. I can only hope more people take his stance.

A great thread about making better salads, via Kate. This is amazing and makes me want to eat an enormous salad, pronto.

An interesting look into the world of Toronto online dating! Thanks to Laura for passing this piece along.

While I would not call this book “inspiring” per se, I did find Bad Blood (the story of the Theranos fraud & scandal) incredibly compelling and fascinating. It was like watching a nightmare unfold.

My friend Sonja re-launched her Nurture newsletter this week! Subscribe for thoughtfully-curated-everything.

I’ve watched this video of Tucker more than once this week. That’s probably all you need to know. I just LOVE HIM. He’s so funny.

It was super fun to have two interviews I did come out recently! I’m talking about my favourite topics – productivity & systems. Listen to the Soul Compass episode here and the Simply Elaborate episode here.


Another week totally flying by! It was such a good week. I sold out my retreat (AHHH!!!) to the most incredible people. I am working with great folks in The Foundery. I’m excitedly prepping for a presentation next week at the Radford team summit! And I have so much to look forward to in the next couple of months. It feels so good to be in this place! This weekend I’m planning on spending some time with my sisters and taking some quality down time before things start ramping up for the retreat. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too! xo.
