Laura Reilly’s Top 40 Travel Tips For Victoria, Vancouver Island and Vancouver

July 12, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Our NAIFA Iowa friend and client Steve Dewey e-mailed and asked us what to see in and around Victoria, Vancouver Island and Vancouver.

Given that I’m deeply engaged in filming our new online course to launch this September, I thought I would offer Laura Reilly’s Top 40 Travel Tips as A Blog and for our July Newsletter.

Victoria is Laura’s hometown and we have lived in the Greater Victoria / Vancouver areas for most of our lives. 

We hope that you enjoy Laura Reilly’s Top 40 Travel Tips.

Both Victoria and Vancouver are very walkable and safe; both cities have a homeless problem – like most cities in North America.


Take the ferry to Victoria. It’s a beautiful trip, breathtaking and you might even see some killer whales or a school of dolphins!  

The must see for Victoria is the Inner Harbor where you will find;

    This title reminds me of a book title by Terrence Real: “I Don’t Want To Talk About It.”

    The World Health Organization has identified stress as the “health epidemic of the 21st century” costing North Americans $300 Billion every year.

    According to Max Lucado, author of “Anxious For Nothing,” “one psychologist reports that the average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s.”

    Google research indicates that there are 5 Quintilian bytes of information created every single day and that 90% of the information that has been created, has been created in the last two years.

    CNBC reports a recent survey found that 71% of financial advisors said they experience moderate or high negative stress, compared to 63% of investors.

    The Mindful Financial Advisor

    Is workplace stress or anxiety impacting your ability to concentrate, make good decisions, or to give your best self to your clients?

    You may be thinking, “Isn’t workplace stress the norm, given global financial changes and subsequent loss of trust in the financial sector? Doesn’t everyone feel stressed out and anxious at work, especially those of us who are having to prove their worth to their clients every day?”

    The answer may be “yes,” most of the time, but I would add that it doesn’t have to feel like this.

    You can learn to manage your stress and diminish your anxiety, through mindfulness, and remain calmer in an otherwise frantic world.

    According to a recent article in Psychology Today, “Mindfulness helps us keep our attention in the present moment, direct our attention where we want it to go, and potentially even to increase the number of things we can

    End Workplace Conflict With These 7 Steps For Leaders In The Financial Services Profession

    April 17, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

    You’re part of a strong financial services professional team, and your team can produce outstanding results… most of the time. But sometimes teams can slide down the slippery slope of discontent generating unnecessary and unwanted workplace conflict. You as the team leader may or may not be aware of it, although if you’re tuned in, you are, being aware that sometimes, just sometimes, it starts with you.

    If you are noticing conflict in your office, ponder the following and do some self-reflection. The only perspective that matters is from your true self, your soul, not the amygdala:

  • Look into the future. Things must change.
  • Hiring new people won’t solve the problem. It won’t take long for a new hire to feel the discontent and they could leave as quickly as they arrive. This could generate further discontent and pave the way for your current strong members to also leave.
  • One must commit

    Preparing to speak twice at the March 2019 GAMA LAMP Conference has required extra energy, focus, rest, space and time. It has been truly inspiring! Look for more on this in future posts.

    My Solutions Session and Thought Leadership Presentations will include offering these understandings about;

    • Mindset – based upon a set of values and beliefs. The challenge is, most people don’t know the difference between a value and an unmet need. Inspiration is fueled by values, positive feels and positive beliefs; motivation is fueled by unmet needs, negative emotions and negative beliefs. The law of attraction is absolute.
    • Mindful – accepting current emotions and feelings. The challenge is, in the endless and unsustainable pursuit of staying high on motivated doing, most people deny themselves the self-compassionate space to be, to accept current emotions and feelings. To accept is to love.
    • Self-compassion – self-kindness,

      This kind of work requires courage. The courage to be real, open and vulnerable, to connect with how one is feeling, to save oneself from drowning in a sea of thinking and doing, and perhaps trying to keep afloat with alcohol, caffeine, drugs, gossip, shopping, social media, TV and/or a poor diet.
