1. For our readers to get to know you better can you please tell us who you are, what type of business you are in and why?

My name is Diana Nazareth and I'm a Toronto-based lifestyle family photographer. For the past 8 years I’ve been had the pleasure to photograph over a hundred families, children, moms-to-be and first birthday parties, bat/bar mitzvahs events and weddings. I also have a passion for photography education. For the past two years, I've been piloting a photography workshop, mainly for kids in grades 4-8, where I not only teach them the basics of digital photography but also encourages in them creativity, visual literacy skills, critical-thinking, and self-esteem.

How To Use Social Media As A Strategic Networking Tool

Conferences are one solid strategy to enhance knowledge taken from the speakers and implemented in business. They are a great opportunity to learn, meet with elite entrepreneurs and, my favorite, get business books at conference prices. The books are for me to continue with learning from the people that have been there before me. Knowledge is power and learning is infinite. I know that personally if I can learn one thing per day I am far better off than I was yesterday. Learning does not happen only during talk at conferences or from reading books, it also happens from peers around us. Just because someone is not a speaker on a big stage it does not mean that they do not have value to add to the world. Question is where do we find these people?

My name is Cathleen Filmore and I own a Speakers Bureau called Speakers Gold – we are based in Toronto, Ontario and I am also a marketing consultant to speakers who want to make more money doing what they love. I started the bureau because working with speakers really inspires me and fuels me. And I am a marketing consultant because I'm good at finding an innovative strategy that my clients haven't explored. I also bring my writing background to my work and strengthen my clients' value proposition.

3 Strategies to help you #QTheMonkey in stressful situations

Living in Toronto, especially during the cold winter days like today, it is very hard to feel positive and motivated to do anything for ourselves at times. For entrepreneurs who are undergoing major stress, be it from life, work or a mixture of both, there isn't always much to do…or so it seems.

As part of a well balanced life, we need to think of a way to make ourselves happy with the resources that we have. One way that this can be done is through awareness of mindfulness meditation.

What is mindfulness meditation? According to Wikipedia, Mindfulness Meditation is an adaptation of Buddhist Vipassana meditation by which one learns to be mindful, "the intentional, accepting and non-judgmental focus of one's attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment." Mindfulness meditation can become "a mental position for being able to separate a given experience from an associated emotion, and can facilitate a skilful or mindful response to a given situation."

7 Things I Wish They Taught In School

School

I’m all about education both in school and through life experience but I often look at what I was taught and think that the education system might have missed the boat on a few things that could make the world of difference in a person’s future. Here’s my take on 7 things I wish they taught at school.

 

1.The importance of goal setting

 

Not once while I was in school was this ever discussed, mentioned or taught in grade school, high school or university yet it is a basic success tool that is paramount to  achieving one’s life’s desires. I truly believe that providing a student with this basic tool and education with respect to creating a map to their destination is a must!
