Perhaps you’ve wondered why I’ve been so quiet lately, well, it’s pretty tough to write when you are driving across Canada! Today I am veering away from the point of this blog – to share my journey as a young female business professional, to talk about how proud I am to be Canadian!
Fear is one of the strongest motivators in our lives. It grips us at the very core of who we are, and holds us back from reaching our potential. It is ironic to say that fear is a “motivator” (isn’t it a de-motivator?), but it is. It encourages us to run from situations in our lives that we perceive as “threatening” or “scary”. In life and business, I have come to recognize the importance of overcoming fear and pushing forward.
When I started this blog I explained that I would write about my “B2B” moments – or “Brienne to Brienne” moments. The whole point of the “B2B” moment is to let you, my readers, in on what my brain is thinking on a specific topic. Pretty much, it is a way for me to talk to myself, without feeling like I’m going crazy (ha).
Today, I’ve been thinking about handshakes. It is so important for people to know how to give a proper handshake. There is nothing worse than shaking someone’s hand and receiving a weak, or half-handed shake.
Very cool idea! Friendships with Benefits, everyone has something to teach you…you just have to be willing to listen 🙂
A friend of mine started a blog recently and I just have to share it. This lady is one of those friends that is more Facebook than real-life. I adore her, but we met through a mutual bestie and we’re not really in contact one-on-one. But we’re Facebook friends, and that was enough to alert me to her blog: Friendships With Benefits. Here’s the gist, as blog creator and friend Fallyn explains it:
Friendships With Benefits was created to share, learn and connect. I’ve asked all my friends to teach me something. It can be anything and while you teach me, I’ll be recording with my IPhone. The point is everyone has something to teach. Everyone has value and something to give. You don’t have to be an expert or even do it that well. You just need to know the steps and be able to communicate it to…

Too many people take their job for granted. Over time, it’s like the air has been let out of their proverbial balloon. Where’s the passion, the drive? With long work hours, some people just need a good vacation, while others need a good kick in the butt!
Ladies, take care of yourselves! My problem is I put work before eating (and thus, my health). If you don’t take care of your body, it won’t take care of you as you age.
To be at the top of your career, you need your health (hard lesson for me too).
Here’s to being at the top of your game in every aspect of your life!

Identifying your passion and making sure that your career aligns with that passion is extremely important. While most people know what Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is, I think it is worth mentioning. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs states that one must first meet their physiological needs, safety, long and belonging, esteem, and then self-actualization to be a completely fulfilled person. I believe that identifying one’s passions, and living them out satiates the needs identified in the “esteem” and “self-actualization” categories of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
Women have made many strides in the workforce, but has it come at a price?
“Anything you can do, I can do better…”
Whether you want to believe it or not, people judge you on the way you present yourself to the world, basically, how you dress and carry yourself.
I believe that you should dress for the position you want, not the position you have. Thoughts and actions have power. If you exude passion and confidence in the way you carry yourself, treat others, and dress, you will attain success. You become what you think and believe every day! Just as words have the power to breathe life or destroy, so do your thoughts. You are worth it, dress for success!
