You'll Always Have Time

If you're Canadian, at the end of reading this blog title you probably heard yourself sing "for tim hourtons."

God you have to love advertising. Isn't it amazing the things we do with words and the things words do to us?

Anyway, this blog is not about donuts and coffee.

But a mission and destination born from your heart, that will move you in a way that defies everything you think you know and again and again propels you into moments where only your highest and only your best come nose to nose with you.

I'm grateful I asked this question almost a decade ago and the magic-lined answer…
