Where Will YOU Be in 20 Years?

With planning for this year’s Winspiration Day Vancouver officially under way and off to an exciting start, we’ve been thinking about long-term goals.

The Difference Between Motivation and Inspiration

Winspiration, is, of course, a play on the word inspiration. Inspiration is something that is difficult to cultivate yourself, though, which is why it’s so important to find a local community of like-minded people (your tribe) who can help you to recognize inspiration when it makes an appearance. Inspiration is also closely tied to motivation. […]

Starting a Conversation with a Homeless Person

On Winspiration Day Vancouver this year (May 7th), we had the privilege of being spoken to by Trish Garner, Community Organizer for the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition. Her words, as one would imagine, were powerful but simple: talk to a homeless person. Start a conversation. Ask them their name, where they came from, and how […]
