The key to success for any goal is to first write it down and then plan it out. I have seen success after success since I started

As if it wasn’t enough to be the victim of rape on four separate occasions. To lose your son when he was only 8 years old is something that would tear the heart and soul out of any woman and surely lead her on the path to destruction. But not Ms. Cola Bennett. Last week, I had the honour of celebrating the life of Kayshaun (Cola’s son) as part of the release of her book: C.O.L.A: Casualty of Love’s Apologies, which relives the story of Cola’s tragic teenage years, to

Last month, I had the privilege of attending the 2018 StartupFest for the very first time in my beloved hometown of Montreal. It was such a great experience from the Startup Train to Air BnB.

Prefer to listen to this blog instead? You may have seen in passing that Saks Fifth Avenue is one of the major fashion brands in my network, but earlier this month, I found yet another way to deepen my relationship with them through affiliation. Background Just to give you a little background, I embarked on the road of affiliate marketing some years ago through Shareasale and I didn’t revisit it until recently.

Prefer to listen to this blog instead? When it comes to confidence and self-esteem, it’s all about your attitude and seeing things from a new perspective. Last night I went to see I Feel Pretty with Amy Schumer and it definitely had me ROTFL, but what stood out for me is the overall message of letting your confidence flow, with complete ignorance to the world’s idea of what beauty and sexiness looks like.

I had been hearing a lot about Ava DuVernay before I decided to look her up. I got on her Instagram, double-tapped some photos and even commented on one of them.
