Three Insights on Building your Legacy

05/05/2018

My experiences both as a Philanthropic Consultant and a Financial Advisor have provided me with a unique perspective in understanding and appreciating the giving philosophy and drivers of many Saskatchewan families as they seek to contribute to their community and create a lasting legacy. One of life’s biggest ironies is how we often reflect on our own personal legacy at the end of our life, after it’s been built and there is little we can do to enhance it. That’s when we may realize our best intentions didn’t match our actions, or we didn’t set any goals or direction in the first place. With that in mind, I had a conversation with entrepreneur and philanthropist JoeAnne Hardy, President of Saskatoon-based WBM Technologies. JoeAnne grew up in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan and cites her upbringing and parents’ lifestyle as being key to her belief that we all need a purpose to our lives.

Do You Pan for Gold Nuggets?

24/04/2018

Pan for gold nuggets. On a recent trip to Victoria, B.C., we had the opportunity to learn how to pan for gold nuggets at the Royal BC Museum. A friendly, knowledgable (and patient) volunteer was teaching my children. It was fascinating watching them practice the technique and see their excitement when the dirt and rocks would wash away (along with small gold flakes) and they were left with some precious small nuggets.

The Benefits of Mentorship

10/04/2018

Every experience has value. During a challenging time in business, a mentor shared a metaphor about the Tapestry of Life. Sometimes we focus on the backside of the tapestry (yes, we all do) which looks messy, tangled, frayed and may not seem connected at all.

Plan to Make a Difference

01/04/2018

At Sutton Financial Group, we show successful entrepreneurs and professionals how to preserve, protect, and pass on their wealth so that they can impact their world in a meaningful way.

Who Do You Rely On?

13/03/2018

Have you ever watched a child about to try something new and a little bit scary? I remember encouraging my daughter to jump off the dock and into the lake for the first time. It was priceless – it was like she was walking in place, trying to muster up the courage to take the leap. She would make a false start, bending her legs and leaning toward the water, only to pull back at the last second because it was too unnerving for her.
