All Aboard!!! Pathways To Preventative Health!

What a whirlwind weekend! I spent it walking the floor of a trade show meeting people, learning about their products and finalising deals.

Giveaways, Discounts and Back to School Fever!

Happy Monday Everyone! Despite many days feeling like I am still lost in an abyss – I did experience an overwhelming sense of accomplishment last Tuesday when I realized that I had just taped my 25th episode of my “Living Your Life with Lianne Laing” podcast.

Reunion of Friends, Family and Food – My Life in a Nutshell

It was a weekend of reunions for me of the most special kind. First an opportunity to spend time with amazing women I have called friends since our first days of kindergarten, to running with open arms to my daughters on visiting day at sleepaway camp. Connections, hugs, familiarity, authenticity are a real and beautiful thing! The weekend started with …
