Arizona Adventure Getaway (With a Little Bit of Wine)!

Four years ago, right around this time I stood (more like kneeled over and vomiting) at the top of Mount Kilimanjaro with two of my best friends, Brynn and Carol. It was a grueling night to summit in a snow storm, battling altitude sickness and the freezing cold temperatures. It is one of my proudest accomplishments. Brynn and Carol have …

New Content Monday – Healthy Snacks and Cruise Information Session!

Happy Monday! Spring finally arrived this weekend! Do you notice how people are just in better moods? It was so nice to see people sitting on their front stoops, cleaning out the garage, washing their cars – trying to take in the vitamin D they’ve been lacking for months. It’s a rebirth as the grass appears and the sun soothes. …

Wonder Woman! From Desk Job To Amazon Warrior!

I think in total I dressed up as Wonder Woman three times for CTV Morning Live. Twice for our Halloween shows and another for Comic Con. I have no desire to take on the role again but I will admit to being a huge fan of the movie. With that being said, I was totally taken aback when I found …

New Content Tuesday – Discounts for You and Snacks for Them!

I didn’t take long for me to put the pieces in place when I sat down with Julia Parker from Oil Changers. I was embarrassingly honest – I couldn’t remember the last time I had my oil changed, let alone be able to show you where the oil is supposed to go. Don’t judge yet! I start the car and …

Impacting the Lives of Others – A Discussion With the Mayor

What I found interesting when Mayor Jim Watson came by the Extension Marketing studios for our podcast was that he joked that he was nervous. I had no political questions on the agenda, no platforms to cover, no election promises to check off and no request for an update on the LRT. I figured this was an easy home run …

Ziplines, Surfing and the Costa Rican Sunset – Then Back To Work!

I’m back! Did you even know I was gone? 😉 I know you didn’t really miss me, but it was an adjustment for me stepping away from the laptop and taking the week off to enjoy March Break with the family! What an adventure we had! Over the last 6 years or so, March Break usually consisted of a relaxing …

Life Before and After Hockey: A Discussion with Chris and Erin Phillips

Living your Life with Lianne Laing – Ep. 5 I love the Thursday newsletters because they usually involve a story, insight into a relationship and a personal connection to the podcast guest. I asked my good friends Erin and Chris Phillips to be guests on my podcast long before the podcast even existed, had materialized or had a name. They …

What’s in your medicine cabinet?

Living Your Life with Lianne Laing – Ep. 4 What’s in your medicine cabinet? Have you ever asked yourself how you ended up using one medication, only to start needing another to counter balance the side effects? Are you concerned that you’ve lost track of why you started down this road in the first place? Did a sleeping pill or a …
