My worth according to potential employers has humbled me more than I care for.

A rusty sign reading ‘for hire’

Working within your means is beyond important. It’s necessary.

Recently, my mother opened a coffee shop. We call it the River Stone Cafe, and it’s become the hidden gem of the little town we opened in. Out here in Northern Ontario, there’s not a lot of variety. Finding anything with some variety that isn’t a fast-food chain is nearly…

The world is in turmoil; you don’t have to be.

I’ll call it like it is. Everything is a little messed up right now. Lots of us are out of work or struggling to find new jobs. …
