With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility

With the uncertainty of so many things - quite honestly it makes us work harder. For a couple reasons. Course there's financial security for us that may be of concern but more so the responsibility for those around us. We have a couple part time workers that help us out, who we want to continue to employ and continue to help however we have been financially. We have our distributors as well, which are always of concern. We want to make sure we're doing right by them, because they are hel...

In Considering Buying Gifts for the Holidays

I thought about something the other day and I feel like it's more relevant than ever with that big C word coming up quickly with some who have already purchased most of their gifts. In many cases price plays a major factor in deciding whether to buy or not. And I understand that's it's important to consider price but I also wanted to explain what it's like from the other side, maybe for those who create and produce products and services. In most cases, when you take an entrepreneur o...

Increase At Home Workout Success

Here's a few steps to help increase your success rate to get your at home workouts in. Set your clothes out the night before, set a day and a time in advance, create a location up in your home; set out your yoga mat the night before also. And make sure it fits into your lifestyle.

Book a Time for Yourself to Workout

It's important to book a time for yourself to workout. Know exact when it is that you're going to workout and keep that time no matter what! We often put ourselves at the bottom of the list. Everyone else means more than we do. We push everyone else to the top and leave ourselves with little time to do anything. We keep hair and nail appointments, we keep golf or beer with the guys appointments; we even keep our vehicle appointments. But when it comes to us and the importance of our mental a...

Gut Health and Fermented Ingredients

It's important to read the ingredients when it comes to digestion, gut health and fermented ingredients. Fermented ingredients are hard to find because better quality ingredients cost more to make which means the company will make less of a margin at the end of the day. And let's face it, when it comes to most protein supplements, more about their bottom line than improving health. The lack of quality ingredients at the grocery store and with so many not reading the ingredients - we hav...

Add Fermented Foods to Improve Digestion

Fermented foods is without question, one of the best ways to improve digestion. Some of my favourite fermented foods include: Kombucha, Sauerkraut, Kimchi and Miso. I choose to make homemade kombucha but there is some great local businesses that produce their own, which in my opinion would be better than a mass produced product. If you are purchasing Sauerkraut make sure it's raw and needs to be stored in the fridge. Kimchi is my favourite of all of these and again I choose to m...

Maybe some prizes and giveaways, maybe some businesses want to be involved and help out? How cool would it be to get most of the community shopping local th...

Why We Reach Out to Customers

The reason we reach out to customers is because we genuinely care. We enjoy the relationships we build. We appreciate meeting and learning about our customers live. In fact we often call our customers our friends because in large part we know about their personal lives and they know about ours. I know conventionally they tell you to separate your business and life but that's not the way we work. So when we reach out, and ask 'how are you doing' we mean, how are you doing? And ot...
