It’s About Procrastination

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

  My name is Agnes and I’m a Procrastinator. Don’t get me wrong! I have a huge amount of energy and I always have something on the go… but there are certain things I can predictably avoid.  Difficult phone calls.  Financial statements.  Facebook ads. I was blind-sided recently when I found myself procrastinating over almost […]

As The City Gets Bigger, My World Gets Smaller

/ / Sass Savvy & Success

That observation came to me like a lightening bolt on a recent, and extended, visit to a city I lived in for about 30 years, but left 11 years ago. There were a number of compounding factors: traffic was ridiculous road construction was everywhere infrastructure had deteriorated pedestrians were device-absorbed shopping malls had grown into […]

Intergenerational Business Partners

/ / 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lost. Stolen. There Is A Difference.

/ / 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 […]

Good Thing. Bad Thing. Who Knows?

/ / 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?

/ / 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 […]
