Kyle Hutchins CFA

My primary background and passion in life is in investments, finance, etc...really anything related to the investing world. Self-improvement and Motivational books, quotes, articles and videos have become a huge passion of mine over the past few years. There is so much to learn and experience in life! I think one of the worst things we can do is to squander our precious time being depressed, unmotivated, and unproductive. Instead we can and should learn to love life more, take challenges in stride, be more forgiving of ourselves and others, help the less fortunate, and strive to be the exact version of you that you want to be in this world.

Vaughn Berkeley (Author)

If I could compare myself with anyone in history, it would be Cincinnatus. He was an emperor of the Roman Empire. He was really a farmer at heart and reluctantly became emperor when asked to serve his country. Rome was being hammered in battles and was in danger of losing the war. Cincinnatus took over the emperor role and commanded Rome’s mighty army to victory. Then, when the empire was stable again, he gave it all up to go back to… FARMING! I’d rather be in my garden than writing about myself. I’d rather spend time with those I love and care about than spend time with thousands of people in the world. Living a life of worth is my only goal in this phase of my life. Before I was 30, I created the multi-million dollar perpetual bursary system at Ryerson University. The campaign made headlines across the university circuit. It was unheard at the time. But I only did it because my heart was with the poor, the single mothers, those who really wanted an education but couldn’t afford to go back to university. I wanted to do something to help them and we did. These days, there’s a higher calling on my life. Father of 3, loving husband, author, writing coach, educator, and of course, gangsta gardener. I’m a work in progress. My focus is on spiritual growth for 2018 and these days I enjoy working with aspiring Christian writers, micro-entrepreneurs, and of course, my work as co-publisher of EternityWatch Magazine.

Chelsey Hudon

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first. - The Lizard King

Jessica Wyce

I was blessed to have such a colourful upbringing. I could be the typical conservative writer and tell you all my specific generic details about myself, but I'm not that kind of person or author. Instead I will say that coming from a mixed religious and cultured family, moving around a lot as a child, living in pretty poor income areas of Montreal (or the "ghetto" as some would call it), and going through some pretty traumatic events in both childhood and adulthood has definitely shaped who I am today. I was born in a small city of Charlesbourg, just outside of Quebec city. Up to the age of 4 years old, I didn't speak a word of English. My mother-tongue was French. However, that all changed thanks to my father. We moved to Montreal in hopes that my father would get away from the small mentality that he felt from being away from England, to hopefully find work in his field, and that my sister and I would learn English. Well, two out of three wasn't bad. Coming from a shy Catholic French-Canadian mother and an extroverted Jewish British father really did have a strong impact on my sister and I, especially in our childhood. We went through lots of crap growing-up, too much to write at the moment. My mum tells me I should write a book. So guess what? I'm working on it. Growing-up I had two things that saved my skinny arse: classical ballet and writing. I started dancing not long after we moved to Montreal. The discipline, the escape it created for me to forget outside stresses, and the art of understanding how I can express myself without words really helped me stay focused during those rough times. The writing came a bit later, around 10 years old if I remember right. All thanks to my grade 5 teacher, who one day asked us to keep a daily journal of our Christmas holiday. I never stopped writing since. Writing and dancing saved my life during my high school years, it kept me sane in college, and made me realise my passion for both arts by the time I reached university. Now, being a mum of an autistic boy I understand why I was given all these experiences and gifts: to help him and other children grow and discover their own passions.
