A Segment with Empower Media – What Empowers You?

Posted on: Saturday, May 13th, 2017 under blog

“I see myself as an Editor. I am an instructor on how to write stories. I join clients and help them identify the person separate from the problem and I help them identify what it is that they prefer their lives to be like. I help them edit out the parts that don’t fit for […]


Valentine’s Day – An Anxiety-Ridden Hallmark Holiday, or Relationship Booster?

Posted on: Monday, February 6th, 2017 under blog

It’s February, and with the continued cold weather and short days, comes the much anticipated (and sometimes dreaded) holiday of love… Valentine’s Day. Advocates of the holiday can’t wait to consume copious amounts of chocolate, share hugs and kisses with their partner, and reflect on the good times of their current romantic relationship. Critics of […]

Everyone at one time or another faces struggles in their lives. However, there are times when our past experiences can significantly impact our present life through lingering unresolved memories which seem to ‘hijack’ our normal cognitive and emotional abilities.

Home Team Advantage

For whatever reason the 2011 Stanley Cup finals is heading to game 7. I have some ideas. Among them is that why have only 5 or 6 games when you can have 7? Why deny a city another multi-million dollar opportunity in earnings from an extra game? Calgary would have done the same, I think. […]
