Organize Your Life by Wendy Monteith

Jun 06, 2022

What Does Organizing Look Like to you? 

Pretty pantries, Clear bins and pretty labels, perfectly folded clothes and linens? Rainbow-organized bookshelves and closets? Minimalistic style? Purging everything because it’s driving you crazy? Or do you panic at the sheer thought of decluttering your precious piles of stuff, and making the decisions of what stays or goes?

Saving Sophie by Tracy Ryan

May 16, 2022

My story is not a conventional one. It has been fraught with roller coaster rides that are unimaginable to the average person. There have been a lot of extreme lows but incredibly high highs despite the tragedies that my family has endured over the last nine years.

Challenge Accepted

Apr 04, 2022

I am so excited about the release of my book Challenge Accepted.  It is a lifestyle book and autobiography of how I was able to change my self-limiting beliefs and build myself up from absolutely nothing.

Finding my self-worth, self-care, self-love, and the right tools have changed how I value myself today. If you’re not healthy, it’s tough to be happy. You should do what makes you feel good in life and cause no harm to others.

I am very fortunate to have found a spiritual...

Finding Balance in February

Feb 01, 2022

We are a month into the new year, and so many of us feel the stresses of life.

Many of us have had to pivot our way of working, be it in the house with our family, building our businesses, or working in our remote offices. Even if you have returned to work, you may be feeling like the large majority that your work/life balance is gone.

Nov 07, 2021


It's November and we are focusing on Men’s health lifestyle and awareness. The average man pays less attention to his health than the average woman.

Many of the major health risks that men face can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle:

1) Regular exercise
2) Healthy diet
