Hey there. It’s been a while. I hope you can forgive me for that. There’s been a lot happening in my world! Between working on some pretty exciting things behind the scenes for my business and packing up my life in the United States and moving back to my homeland of Canada, I’ve had quite …

Know who your people are

I love when things have multiple applications. If you know anything about me you know I’m a total geek when it comes to new technologies. Whether it’s something that does the job of five other machines or simply a lesson that can be applied to multiple areas of life, from business to personal and beyond, …

The art of being misunderstood

Have you ever rented a movie that comes with the extras at the end? You know, like interviews with the actors and directors, deleted scenes, behind the scenes, etc. Well that’s usually where I start. Before I even watch the movie I’ll watch the extras first. Now I know what you’re probably thinking… Jay, that’s …

The iron is hot. Are you ready to strike?

The times they are a changin’… About 10 seconds ago I couldn’t remember which artist sang those words, then POOF I had the answer thanks to good ol’ Google. It was Bob Dylan, by the way… Information is so readily available to us now that there’s no excuse not to be educated and informed. Think …

When’s the last time you threw yourself a pity party? Be honest…We all do it… Sometimes it’s nice to be self-indulgent and just wallow in our sad feelings like a pig in shit. Just cry it out or sit and pout. But here’s the thing… Life can throw us so many curveballs that it can …

Just shut up and do the thing

So as you may or may not know, I do a Facebook Live session that inspires this blog once a week. Until recently I was doing these WAKEUP Calls on Tuesdays, but I’ve decided to move them to Wednesdays. “But why fix something that isn’t broken?” For a few reasons… First of all, WAKEUP Wednesday …

Where do we find more bandwidth?

So I’d like to start this week by confessing a little something… I’ve got a pretty big man crush on Elon Musk. Ok maybe “man crush” is a bit strong, but I most definitely admire the guy. I mean, just take a look at what he’s accomplished and continues to accomplish, not only for himself …

Trust yourself and treat yourself

For anyone who’s ever tuned into one of my live WAKEUP Calls on Facebook, you’ll know that I host most of them from the studio I’ve built in my basement. What you might not know is that I actually spend quite a bit of time there working, brainstorming and even relaxing. When I started planning …

Let go and reap what you sow

Fall is in the air… Another season, another transition… Autumn is my favorite season because you get to reap the rewards of your work from the year. You get to reap what you sow. As a former farmer, this metaphor really resonates with me because if we look to nature, it’s kind of comforting to …
