Intergenerational Business Partners

January 30, 2018 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

Ok, that title is just for effect.  At the time of writing this, I do not have a business partner. I do, however, have a second computer set up on my desk that, for now, is used by only one person, and production is at a high level when that person sits in the chair. […]

Why You Can’t Pigeonhole A Baby Boomer

January 18, 2018 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

I found an interesting statistic yesterday.  In the U.S., in 1965, there were approximately 60 childbirths per 1,000 women under 20 years of age.  Even though the stats suggested it was higher than in many other western countries, that’s quite a few babies. I Want To Hold Your Hand When my brother graduated high school […]

Intention vs Inattention

December 15, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

I’m on a reading binge at the moment.  Motivational and business recommendations mostly and I’m thinking that, if I’m seeing a theme develop, perhaps I should pay attention! Like many of you, I spend a portion of my life on auto-pilot.  Even though I am determined to make my life about choices, and I really […]

It’s All About The Choices: One Woman’s Opinion

November 24, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

  By some standards I’m older than dirt! Looking in the rear view, I guess I have lived through a number of decades.  They all have such different memories.  And lessons learned. I remember as the 50s turned into the 60s finding out there was a whole big world out there outside my small home […]

Lost. Stolen. There Is A Difference.

October 28, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

I was going to start this post with a definition of “lose”, but when I went to dictionary.com, there were a couple dozen definitions (gotta love the English language!). Maybe I should start at the beginning: I had a career in ElderCare.  Frailty.  Dementia.  Illness.  and inevitably Death.  So many things in those days were […]

Open Request To Every Woman Who Reads This

September 20, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

One of the advantages, to me, of getting older is the ability to see how, while we need to change the way the world sees women, we need to first change the way we women see ourselves. To this end I have a challenge for you. For one week, I want you to really soften […]

Good Thing. Bad Thing. Who Knows?

July 27, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

I was recently reminded of the following story: Once upon a time, an old farmer lived in a valley with his son, a handsome and dutiful youth. They lived a peaceful life despite a lack of material possessions. They were very happy. So much so, that neighbours wanted to understand the secret of their happiness. […]

What Do You Think About Body Hair?

June 26, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

Have you ever considered the universal fascination we have with body hair? Both women and men are susceptible to societal expectations, norms, and aversions about the hair that happens (or doesn’t) on our bodies. I listened to a CBC Radio program recently about this and I was interested to notice what I agreed with and […]

What Excites You?

June 19, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

Seriously! What excites you… that you can tell me in front of my 7 year-old grandson! I’m mostly talking money here. Thinking about day-to-day life, how stoked would you be to find out a gas station across town was selling gas for 3₵/litre less than every other gas station in town? Would you call your […]

It’s About The Word “Girl”

May 26, 2017 / Agnes / Sass Savvy & Success

What do you think about the use of the word “girl”? Over the years, I’ve had some pretty strong opinions about words used to describe, explain and categorize women. Recently, I watched a video from Mayim Bialik (Amy Farrah Fowler on Big Bang Theory) where she went on a bit of a rant about women […]
