I have had moments of feeling socially awkward, exhausted, and stressed about navigating larger group settings and deciding what I am personally comfortable with. Do these feelings resonate with you?

 

As a coach, trainer, and mentor to educators, business leaders, and high-performance sport coaches and teams, I’ve had to listen to the advice I often share with others and embrace what I call ‘The Power of 3.’ Our collective goal as we emerge from this pandemic needs to be reconnection.

PIE JUNKIE IS COMING TO CROWFOOT CROSSING!

The new shop will open on October 1st in Crowfoot Crossing, bringing a wide variety of tantalizing seasonal pie flavours to residents of northwest Calgary and the surrounding areas just in time for one of the biggest pie holidays of the year – Thanksgiving. We LOVE Pie Junkie and have for years, now's your chance to try it if you haven't yet!
 
Pie Junkie embraces the nostalgic past of pie. The word pie conjures memories of Thanksgiving, Christmas and picnics.  Everyone’s Grandma made the best pie, but the truth is homemade pie has been a dying art for several generations. Pie Junkie saves something that, when done well, is not only a great example of the art of baking, but is a dish that is best shared at home with family and friends. Pie is an edible family tradition.
