Welcome to the Unlimited Newsletter...
It feels like this has been one of the longest winters on record! With lots of snow and cold weather for many of us, it's like it will never end. But, spring is just around the corner!
Have you ever felt that way about your life? When you are going through a tough time and you know it won't last forever, but you keep struggling and can't seem to find your way out?
Just remember that nothing is ever permanent (both the good and bad times) so be with your life in the moment, and don't worry about the future. Just keep your head up and better things will come your way.
On another note, I invite you to join me as I take the stage at McMaster University's DeGroote School of Business on Tuesday, April 22 for their Women's Leadership Breakfast. Find out more details and purchase your tickets now! Looking forward to seeing you there!
Enjoy the ride!

What is Your Money Story?
I bet you've thought about what you would do if you won the lottery? The vacations you'd take, the house you would buy and the people you could help. But, have you put any thought into what your relationship is with money?
If you are like me, at least until recently, the answer to that question would be no. I have thought about my relationships with people, including myself, but managed to completely underestimate the power I was giving money in my life.
About a month ago, it seemed everywhere I turned I was reading articles about money and I even listened to a call from another coach on the topic. I want to share my findings with you and perhaps, reading this article may shed some light on the hold money could have on you to help you release its grip and enjoy life more. Read more
