‘We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.’ – Sir Winston Churchill
In my personal brand consulting with clients I often recommend that they pick a day that means something to their brand and that they can use to make contact with their network at least once a year. I usually advise them not to pick the usual days that everyone else does like Christmas or Thanksgiving because it is hard to stand out.

However this coming weekend I will celebrate another tradition that was new to me when I arrived in Canada – Thanksgiving. The closest tradition would probably be the Harvest Festival in the UK – a celebration
for the harvest and the hope that winter is kind. something that I always hope here too!
Let’s all be a little more thankful for what we have this Thanksgiving and remember to give a little more in the coming months to those less fortunate.
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!
