Split Personality

By | 2022-03-19T07:43:02-07:00 March 19th, 2022|Divorce Self-Help|

Photo by Joshua Fuller on Unsplash Did any of you watch Seinfeld back in the day? If you didn't, you can - it's now on Netflix. I watched Seinfeld, and there is one episode that resonates strongly with me. What I remember about the episode is that George was in conflict with his two personas: [...]

I originally posted this and emailed my MP in 2019, I never received a response. I have updated it and have resent it to the minister of finance. The issue persists. Dear Minister of Finance: I am a part-time single mom and a self-employed Chartered Professional Accountant. I work in the Collaborative Practice as a financial specialist to [...]

Children

By | 2022-02-15T13:50:22-08:00 February 15th, 2022|News & Updates|

Having a child is not a chance for a do-over. Children are separate beings, and while they may have some of your traits, they are not you, and they are always going to be growing up in a vastly different world than the one in which you grew up. Have you seen the list of [...]

The Future of the Child Support System

By | 2022-02-03T14:32:05-08:00 January 14th, 2022|News & Updates|

The Child Support System is Broken When will we stop with studies, anecdotal evidence, and "tweaks" to fix a broken Child Support System and go upstream and prevent people from falling into the broken system in the first place?  The current Child Support System perpetuates child poverty and trauma and leads to a never-ending cycle [...]

Say Yes?

By | 2021-09-05T15:13:02-07:00 September 5th, 2021|Beginning Again, Self-Help, Small Business Tips|

In the very few moments when I wasn't working this year, I was thinking about working better. I got in over my head by saying yes to all work that came my way. Why did I say yes? Saying yes was my lifeline out of pandemic limbo. It combined with my life training not to [...]

Balance

Photo by Joshua Earle on Unsplash Balance. This past year I fell out of balance. The pandemic hit more than a year ago - at the time, no one knew what was going to happen - everything was uncertain, the world slowed down (unless you were a front-line worker), and many people either had nothing [...]

Finding Happiness

By | 2021-01-03T12:01:47-08:00 January 3rd, 2021|News & Updates|

What are your rules for a successful life? And how did you develop the rules you follow? I frequently ask myself that question as most of my life; I followed a set of rules that I seemed to have absorbed from the air around me. It is only within the last seven years that I [...]

A COVID Christmas

By | 2020-12-29T15:24:02-08:00 December 29th, 2020|Self-Help|

Christmas, I am not a fan. Why, as a society, have we not yet outgrown the need for Christmas? Why does Christmas persist? Why, oh, why won't we come to our collective societal senses and banish it once and for all? I have come to the conclusion that Christmas is a self-perpetuating system, a feedback [...]

What a Budget Can Do for You

By | 2020-09-21T10:13:27-07:00 September 21st, 2020|Divorce Self-Help, Financial Self-Help|

One of the primary services I provide is assisting my clients with preparing budgets. I've noticed that clients only ask for help with a budget when they've gotten to the point where they don't know what else to do. The word "budget" seems to invoke fear and resistance in the minds of many people. To [...]

Current Societal Policies and Team Sports

By | 2020-09-12T12:01:09-07:00 June 9th, 2020|News & Updates|

First off, my child is a boy, but my article applies equally to girls, and perhaps, even more. Our current sports policy ensures that most girls will give up on sport by the age of thirteen, though lately, I see this tide turn as we convince more girls to follow the current societal model to [...]
