Networking is invaluable in every part of life. In business, if you think networking is not “necessary” or “worth your time”, you are wrong. So wrong. So why are there people out there that either don’t want to do it or find no value in it? Well it’s likely they are doing it all wrong. Before you stop reading, hear me out. Have you ever gone to a networking event with the intention of meeting someone specific?

So, I’ve been running my business for a couple of years now, and I have come to a conclusion: There are a lot of people in business that are complete dicks about everything. I know that some people are nodding along and agreeing with me, but this article is not for you – cause you likely already get it. This article is for the people shaking their heads at my use of the word “dick” and that I even have the balls to say something so “vulgar”.

Have you ever stopped to consider what was running through the minds of people when they first discovered alcohol? What thought processes were responsible for their notion to share this substance with the rest of the world? You’d think these questions would preoccupy people with loved ones entering and exiting 12 step rehab. You may think that if a member of your family was an alcoholic, you’d consider these topics. Even if it was just until you at least had a rational explanation. Or, you could even be looking for someone or something to blame for all of it.

I recently went through a particularly stressful month, which ended in me feeling extremely lethargic. I then realised how little I had been exercising. It had become all too easy to think ‘oh, I’ll do it tomorrow’, or even ‘I don’t have time’. To reintroduce my body to exercise, I started stretching every morning before having a quick workout. To my surprise, the stretching – which I had taken up on the advice of a friend – made me feel stronger.

The uncomfortable conversation we need to have about mental health before Movember moves on…
Thousands of men are getting ready to mow down their Movember moustaches. Before long, the outward signs of the campaign will all but fade away. But, have we done enough to publicly discuss one of the newer educational pillars and beneficiary causes of the movement: mental health and suicide prevention?

When I think about why I love being a Holistic Nutritionist, one of the reasons that sticks out the most is that I get to meet some pretty amazing people. Whether it be clients, colleagues or strangers with fantastic stories to tell – I am continually honoured to meet every single one of them. Recently, I was fortune enough to meet a group of students studying to become Holistic Nutritionists at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Ottawa.
