The pieces are coming together

I’ll start with the big news first because time is ticking and the buzz is growing around the Awaken A Better You Wellness Cruise. Right Now – Expedia CruiseShipCenters Ottawa is offering free airfare if you purchase the cruise before Feb 8th. That brings the pricing to $4,560.00 all included. For my American friends that’s around $3,500.00. I spent part of this week with Mireille breaking down the itinerary and planning the workouts, seminars and workshops as we make our way down the Danube. Golf courses are being researched and the bar is being well stocked. Next month a massive sweepstakes across the country will be taking place with a chance to win your way on the cruise. I’ll be able to bring you those details at the end of the month!

I’ve just returned from an amazing experience at Unfair Advantage Live in New York City which is an event for entrepreneurs looking to grow their business through media. These companies are looking to leverage their brands through TV, print, radio and podcasts. Let’s be realistic –  I could check off every aspect of this event from both the sides of the spectrum – as the entrepreneur looking to build their brand, and as the media personality with the know-how to make it happen with the right story, pitch and segment breakdown. It was the first time I felt I belonged on either side of the room in a very long time. Plus, the positive energy, vibe and sincere appreciation for what everyone was doing was like nothing I had seen before. It was also exciting to talk about my wellness cruise and my “Living Your Life with Lianne Laing” podcast.

Speaking of this week’s podcast, I chat with JL Core McBain. She is the author of the “30 Day 180” and has documented her most recent fitness journey through YouTube called “My Road To 50”. Like many of you, she was going through the motions for 17 years driving to work – and feeling like she was leaving her spirit and soul back home. This podcast is about having the courage to find something you really love to do and how fitness and coaching gave JL back the life she had always dreamed of. We talk about her outlook on nutrition and workouts and why the ageing process is difficult on all of us. As always, the podcast will be released on Thursday.


Briefly, it is February and Heart Health Month. I wrote what ended up being an emotional post about it on Instagram the other day (that usually happens when I talk about losing my dad to a massive heart attack). I tend to leave different parts of myself on all my social media platforms. Please take the opportunity to follow me on Instagram and help the podcast gain momentum by subscribing, liking and sharing the content with friends or your networks.

Much Love,
Lianne xo
