We were invited to the Ottawa Chateau Laurier last weekend for a one-night Fairmont Gold experience stay. This is my open and honest review of our stay at the hotel. Photo credit Kamara Morozuk.

Goal setting 2018: the importance of setting goals in life & business and how to stick to them


It was a slow start to get motivated this year, I got a taste of the simple life and it felt hard to come back from it. I hadn’t posted my annual “hindsight- a year in review” in January like I normally do, I’ve neglected the blog and this cold weather has me completely uninspired. My recent trip to Tulum, however, did get my creative juices flowing again! Proof that resting the mind and body is a necessity. Now that I am feeling myself again and because I want to stick to my good habits, I am forcing myself to write this goal-setting post, as I have done for the last 5 years. It is one thing that I have consistently done, and that has contributed to the growth and success of my life and business.

So if you want to know more about the importance of setting goals in life and business and you want to know how you can stick to them, keep on reading!
