Hi folks ! I know that it has been quite a while since I wrote out to you , but I have been busy . Rest assured I am back , you’re probably wondering what marketing related or thought provoking idea do I have to share with you ? Well, although not related to marketing , I have been thinking how do I create substance in my life ?
Good evening everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend. I just got back from a fun and relaxing weekend at my parents place in Wasaga. If you have been following along with my blog, you will probably know that I recently purchased a used car and have been gearing myself up for larger adventures. If you know me personally, you will know that I haven’t driven too much in my life, as I got accustomed to taking the bus. Although the bus and I had our moments, it was time to part ways and move on to bigger and better things. 3 months later I find myself driving up, by myself to Wasaga beach!

I have thought about this a lot this weekend as I am looking to move out of my high rise apartment and back into a basement apartment to save more money. You always hear that phrase ‘life is about making decisions’, well what if it’s also about marketing decisions?
While I was on one of my many nature walks earlier today I took a look around and saw trees blowing in the breeze, families riding on their bikes and walking their dogs and water trickling by the lake beside me and like many of us I breathed a sigh of relief..yes Summer is finally here. But, then I thought, well why must we wait for summer, or nice weather for that matter, to go on a walk and enjoy our surroundings. Also, as long as you’re careful (wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, or hats, etc) the sun can be a great thing for our mind and body.
I recently looked up an article on 15 reasons why the sun is good for you and came across some interesting statements. Aside from boosting levels of serotonin (The body’s natural happy hormone) and improving our overall mood, the sun can actually do the following
To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to write about today, so I spent a bit of time thinking to myself what inspiring, funny, or creative piece of knowledge can I share with you? There are some unique marketing campaigns happening such as what Tourism Calgary promoted in Toronto last weekend to entice Torontonians to visit the city, or the ongoing Ontario Election Debate…but I wanted to try something a bit different…
