The Full Monty

This blog is primarily financially driven and complements my coaching practice in the Greater Toronto Area.  This site provides information about personal change for healthy aging.

The driving principle simply states that healthy aging is a matter of choice, not luck, not genetics and can’t be found in a pill. Specific personal changes in lifestyle ensures healthy aging resulting in greater energy, clearer thinking and a more positive outlook.

So, I put the blog up in June 2012 with the following goals:

  1. Build awareness as a personal change for healthy aging expert.
  2. Create a community interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
  3. Provide and share practical information around personal change for healthy aging.
  4. Be paid to endorse Nike, Hugo Boss and Tag Heuer.
  5. Create awareness around my coaching services.
  6. And most importantly, learn from all you smart people.
  7. Oh, one more, 10% of all revenue generated from this website/blog, including coaching, go to organizations supporting heart and stroke disease, prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives, thanks in advance!

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. First, the obvious: I am an aging,  health and living a life well lived expert, teacher and coach who at times advises. Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place. This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules are rules. To cover my firm behind and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
