If you have or are thinking of starting a side-hustle.
If your main hustle is in jeopardy or you are anxious about finding new sources of income.
If you feel just… stuck-drained-in-a-constant-low-energy-state.
It might be time for you to build a second brain.
What it is
You probably already have some version of a second brain. The ‘second brain’ concept was developed by someone named Tiago Forte. Fo...
How I catch ideas, create characters, expand my vocabulary, organize projects, and keep notes all in the same place.
A few weeks ago I published a story about making money with a second brain. I wanted to provide some more concrete examples, so in this post, I’m going to demonstrate how I use it as a writer.
As I mentioned in the other article, I use Notion for my digital second brain. The way this app is set up, you can easily organize info into pages (which is just a display of information)...

Even when neo-soul singer India.Arie sang out last year that “I am not my hair,” it seems some people would disagree.
Late in the summer of 2007, Ashley Baker, then associate style editor at Glamour magazine, was invited to speak at a New York law firm on fashion ‘do’s and don’ts’ for women at the office.

Hi, my name is Nerissa.
Back in June of this year I started at Interac Association/Acxsys Corporation (“Interac®”) as Community Manager. I’d never worked as a ‘community manager’ before, but the job description was a combination of everything I’d ever done in my career that made me happy: creating content, collaborating, researching and keeping a pulse on both the developer and fintech ‘worlds’.
Before joining, I worked as a freelance writer with the proverbial slash and ‘front-end developer’...
Last week, we were at UofT Hacks; a 36-hour hack event where 500 students from (literally) all over the world came to Toronto to collaborate and build using API’s from companies like Google, Microsoft, IBM.
During the event, we gave hackathon attendees access to a beta version of the Interac e-Transfer Public API, specifically the Request Money feature. In more ways than one this hackathon was an important test of a few projects we’ve been working on behind the scenes: a new design for the de...
We are a couple weeks away from one of the biggest tech festivals in Canada. Elevate is coming, and with it, the Elevate Hackathon happening September 21st-23rd at MaRS.
Yes, Interac is a sponsor of both the festival and the hackathon, but attending is so not (just) about networking to find your next job opportunity. The weekend-long Hackathon is also about building Toronto into a smart city for everyone.
Winning teams are competing for three cash prizes: $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for s...
Despite its name, the buyer journey is not just about buyers. Once they move from awareness to consideration to decision, buyers become customers. This is the point of the journey.
Learning how to make a website responsive got me thinking about messaging, of all things. Mainly I started to wonder if the message of a site changes when it goes responsive.
