Letting go of the edge…
Ever hear that inner voice telling you there’s more to what you have?
Do you listen to it? …The one that tells you to go for it…and believe.
You should listen, its chatter that matters!
Time to examine the truth about where you are.
Take this little self-assessment quiz to get an idea of what’s true for you:
:: Do you procrastinate on doing things that you know will move you forward?
:: Do you have fear and concerns that prevent you from getting ahead?

Talking money of course!
A big reason why many couples argue about money involves differing values and conflicting goals which leads into a battle of; “I’m right … your wrong!”
Here’s why this happens: most couples do not have “Money Talks”. Sure they talk about money in varying degrees – but they don’t get into the ‘nitty gritty’ of their numbers and how the other person feels.
Let’s face it, when cashflow is good, money arguments usually are few – if any.
But when cashflow changes (usually due to less money coming in or expenses going up) […]
It’s that time of year again… do I invest in an RRSP? If so – what type of funds should I invest in.
Well if you are over 55 – according to a RBC survey , 87% of Canadians are looking for investments that grow & guarantee principal and yet 60% not familiar with Segregated Funds that are available from insurance companies.

Baby boomers (those of us born 1946-1964) have been the most marketed to generation in history. After the WWII there was a huge growth and boom in electronics, gadgets, and an exciting appeal […]
Did you know that research shows that opposites tend to attract to each other in relationships?
The crazy thing is that when it comes to money and certain spending habits; savers, who commonly spend less than they would like to spend, and spenders who generally spend more than they would rather spend, tend to marry each other, in fact that’s true for me!
We are more likely to be attracted to partners who possess characteristics different to those we don’t really like in ourselves. You’d think that they would complement each other and you’d […]
“Attitude is everything, so pick a good one!”
“Is your glass half full or half empty?”
“A bad attitude is like a flat tire, if you don’t change it you’ll never go anywhere”
“Change I can’t into I can and pretty soon you will say… I did!”
We have all seen these quotes hundreds of times, but do we always heed this advice?

Are you happy with the way you think about money? Are you in charge of your financial destiny? Do you have fun managing your money and setting goals?
Well if you said ‘No’ to any of the above, you may be hanging on to some money beliefs, habits or attitudes that are stopping you from having fun! Money is an emotionally volatile issue for most women. It’s probably the most complicated relationship we have – and the one that most controls our lives … if we let it!
