Today is Let’s Talk, a day where we focus on mental wellbeing, which touches on resilience and the need for entrepreneurs to channel setbacks into stepping stones.

Tomorrow I will go back to the first lecture, but as today is Bell’s Let’s Talk initiative, I wanted to jump to the sixth course of my Concept to Reality class at McGill where I open up about a handful or headaches and heartaches which set me back emotionally, mentally and physically… but which I ultimately used to become a better manager, leader and person.

As mentioned, many in this sordid media and entertainment industry – which spawned and enabled the Harvey Weinstein’s and Bill Cosby’s – will be shocked by my level of candor. All I hope is that those people have the same level of indignation at those who abuse their power.
