Float at the End of the Tunnel

Two days ago, someone asked me how I was doing with starting my own business and I said “At least I get to float at the end of the tunnel, so that’s nice”.  There are stretches of time where I need to remind myself WHY I am doing this because it is easy to lose focus….

Ricky Goodall Float Ambassador

At my first networking event in Halifax, I stood off to the side, getting my free beer into me as fast as possible.  I was very nervous, it was stuffy, I was wearing uncomfortable shoes.  I felt out of place but hey, free Propeller beer – right?! We went around the room, introducing ourselves and…

Construction Update Ventilation & Deep Breaths

The calls have begun to come in daily: “When are you opening & when can I book an appointment?” My intention all along has been to open at the end of March and I’m gunning hard for that date.  However, as construction buzzes along at what feels like 299,792,458 m/s, I am waiting for one major…

Kate Hamilton Float Ambassador

I am such a lucky-ducky to meet Kate via the CEED program, which supports local entrepreneurs in opening their small businesses.  After attending many-a-workshop together, I got up the courage to chat with Kate and gain some insight into logo creation, branding and, well, style.  Girl is the snappiest dresser I know – which is why you…

Float Ambassadors aka The Floatation Centre’s Life Force

Float Ambassadors are the heart of The Floatation Centre (TFC).  They are responsible for pumping out and sharing the love of floating to our fine city.     A year ago, when creating a list of the attributes I was looking for in folks to be ambassadors, ‘doing good shit in our community‘ was at the top. …

Wowzers

If I could use one word to describe the past week, that would be it.  Wowzers.  The reception of The Floatation Centre has been nothing short of remarkable.  I’ve known all along that this is something that I wanted – needed – to make happen.  The support from external sources (YOU!) further solidified that I’m on the…

Fan Your Flames

<post-from-the-heart incoming> The inspiration for this post came from this lovely, lovely quote from my homeboy, Rumi: Things have been really on lately.  I mean, REALLY on.  Sure, I have hit a shed load of setbacks, but so far, navigating through these murky waters has been viewed from the perspective of a ‘learning process’ as…

Rituals

“I’m feeling a bit off, I don’t know why.” “Have you meditated yet today?” “No… that’s definitely it.” I’m very fortunate to have a roommate who ‘gets it’ and gets me.  Thank you, Tara! I operate best on a routine.  My alarm is set for 7:00am each morning and when it goes off, I start…

It’s all in a…. brand?

Sorting out my logo was an iterative and collaborative process, one that I would not change a single thing about.  I had a rough image in my head of what I wanted but sorting out something perfect became a daunting task: This. Is. My. Brand.  I would carry this forward for years, the look and…
