e126. How to Get Your Sexy Back After Hardship Without Losing Your Cool
There are moments in our journey that are truly life-changing. This week, I’m answering a listener question from Ruby, who underwent four years of cancer treatment and is struggling to feel sexy again. Admittedly, I originally didn’t feel qualified to answer this question, since I have not experienced cancer myself.  But then I thought about it, and decided that falling back in love with ourselves requires the same work and commitment whether you’re finding it post something hugely traumatic like fighting cancer, or if you’ve lost your partner, your home, or whatever you might be struggling to come back from.  So that said, I think you will find my advice helpful if you’re having trouble falling back in love with yourself too. We talk about:[2:55] Ruby’s question[7:45] Knowing your worth and value as a whole person[15:00] Having hard conversations with your partner that will draw you closer together[19:40] Tips to process hardship and get your sexy back Loved this episode?

e120. Becoming Good Financial Role Models ft. Robin Taub
Let’s get candid, friend. How do we become good financial role models for our kids? If you’re like me, you may have grown up with a scarcity and fear-based mindset when it comes to money and finances. My mom was always living paycheck to paycheck, making sure my siblings and I had everything we needed, but there was never anything left afterwards.  Growing up, I always found money to be something that was hard to get, that it goes as fast as it comes. Even when we started to make more money as the years went on, I still had that lingering belief of ‘what if it’s not enough.’ This is why today’s conversation is SO important, our kids need to learn how to reframe their own beliefs about money too! If you're a parent, this is for you. If you’re thinking about becoming a parent, this episode is for you. And if you are somebody like me, who, when you weren't a parent, you didn't learn about money at home, this episode is for you.  Joining me on the show is Robin Taub, keynote speaker and award-winning author of The Wisest Investment: Teaching Your Kids to Be Responsible, Independent and Money-Smart for Life, an update of the bestselling A Parent’s Guide to Raising Money-Smart Kids.  Robin is obsessed with personal finance and investing. Using her financial background, and professional coaching training, she raised two responsible, independent mostly money-smart kids. Now, she helps other parents do the same! We talk about:[0:00] Intro[7:20] Debunking stereotypes around accountants[11:50] The 5 pillars of money[14:10] Three strategies to teach your kids about money[15:20] Why it’s important to know what your values are with money[19:20] How to start financial healing[27:04] Tips to teach parents who are reluctant to money to teach their kids about it[39:00] How to shift from a scarcity mindset [47:50] How education around money and finances is changing in schools[57:30] Why you need to be accountable to your money Loved this episode?

e117. Advocating for Equitable Cancer Treatment & Research Canada-wide ft. Helena Kirk
All right, all right. All right. Friends, I'm so excited for all of you to meet today's Without Losing Your Cool guest, Helena Kirk, who's 16 years old. And she's a dynamo. She's a force of nature. And I am telling you when you are finished listening to her story and her work, you're gonna stand in awe of her in the same way that I do. This is a young woman who at just three years old, endured 841 days of chemotherapy, and 650 medical procedures to beat leukemia. It was during her cancer journey that she learned about the inequitable access to childhood cancer treatment that kids here in Canada had, and how because of this, a tragic number of kids were losing their battle to cancer. And when she went into remission, and her health was in good order, instead of just taking it in stride and carrying on her merry way, she decided in 2018, that her work was not done. And she founded Helena's Hope—an advocacy group with a mission to create a National Childhood Cancer strategy, systems changes, and research funding. In 2018 she founded Helena’s Hope, an advocacy group with a mission to create a National Childhood Cancer Strategy, systems changes and research funding.  She managed to rally over 150 families dealing with childhood cancer across the country, and received signatures from over 30 cancer organizations and 30 pediatric oncologists for a budget proposal. As a result, the Liberal government recently committed $30 million in funding for childhood cancer research. Helena was the 2017 Children's Miracle Network Champion and the 2019 Ontario Junior Citizen Award recipient and was recognized twice in the House of Commons in Ontario.And the work is being started all because of an 11-year-old girl who now is just a regular 16-year-old girl and in grade 11. In her spare time, she does what any other 16-year-old kid would do. She likes playing video games, she does martial arts and of course, loves anything to do with fantasy and sci-fi. I cannot wait to get into her story and her work and share it all with you todayA message from Helena:"I want Canadian kids to have the best chance at survival. We are focused on getting the first ever National Childhood Cancer strategy and in systems changes to ensure fast, fair and safe access to trials and treatments no matter where a child with cancer lives in Canada or how much money their family has. I want more kids to survive cancer like I did."Loved this episode?  I know, me too, friend! Me too!

e116. Creating Trailblazing Social Impact Within the Cannabis Industry ft. Trang Trinh CPA, CA
All right, all right. All right. Friends, we are back with another episode today...This one talks all about the Canna-culture.... that's right, Cannabis culture, the industry, CBD and its healing properties and much more.And I am so excited to have this conversation with an incredible guest who is not just a leader in her industry, but a leader who is trailblazing the way for social change in every way. Today's guest is none other than my dear friend, Trang Trinh CPA, CA. She was the founding director and CEO of TREC brands—a recreational cannabis brand house that developed and manages WINK, Blissed, and Thumbs Up brands. Trang obtained her chartered accountant designation at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and expanded into the industry with Deloitte to develop her skillset in finance strategy, and business operations at Loblaw Companies and Joe Fresh. She worked on over 10 mergers and acquisitions during her time at Deloitte. Prior to leading and founding TREC brands, Trang was a leader in the cannabis sector with an M&A (mergers and aquisitions) lens at Deloitte and guided her clients through cannabis legislation here in Canada in 2018. So, my little bean counter friend was already dipping her toe in cannabis way back when it was first coming out to be legal in Canada. Trang was also renowned as a talent builder in her previous role as Deloitte Canada's women initiative network national chair, where she led a program to recruit, develop and retain, which is super important, top talent women at the firm. Today she is focused on creating a culture of diversity and inclusivity. She's an inspiration and mentor to many, myself included, and continues to pursue her mission of equality and values-based foundation. Trang believes that it is the company's values that drive profits, and not the other way around. She is a champion for diversity and inclusion and advancement of women. We need more women leaders like her, don't we? Trang holds an Honours Business Administration degree from the Richard Ivey School of Business and is a CA CPA.

Hello friends!If you're a lover of high fashion, environmental change, and sustainability, well friends, you're in for a treat!Say hello to Alex and Lindsay Lorusso, lovingly referred to as The Nudnik Twins. After working a collective 20+ years for Wasteco, a waste management company co-owned by their father, twin sisters Lindsay & Alex Lorusso started seeing, firsthand, the astronomical volumes of textiles polluting our landfills. A think tank (of sorts!) was created, dedicated to challenging this large, global problem. A resulting business case quickly evolved and it became Nudnik's steadfast mission to clean up one of the dirtiest industries to date: Fashion. This powerhouse sibling duo is on a mission to disrupt a 3 trillion dollar industry!Nudnik engineers its 'Future-Proof' kidswear from pre-consumer textile waste that would otherwise pollute the planet.Since launching in Toronto, Canada in late 2016, Nudnik has been making headlines throughout North America and Europe with their brand of 'FUTURE-PROOF' kidswear that's wrapped and shipped in zero-waste packaging.In today's episode, we explore what consumer responsibility and ethics look like and feel like, and how we can all find ways to be more sustainable and less wasteful.Loved this episode?  I know, me too, friend!
