"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”. Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars who influence others to listen themselves."

What a wonderful experience it was to join the set of Daytime Ottawa!
The cameras were rolling, the guests were waiting and the set director soon after counted down as we prepared to chat live!

We felt right at ease with Derick and Jasmin who, along with all of you at home, got to learn more about the inspiration, background and future projects for Little Voice!

Unfortunately, we ran out of time before we had the chance to share the winner of our contest! However, shortly afterwe did make use of the Daytime Ottawa set one last time to  announce our winner!

Congratulations to Lucy from Twitter! A copy of Little Voice will be arriving in your mailbox soon!

A BIG thank you to all those who shared and tweeted for our giveaway! Stay tuned for our next contest announcement, coming very very soon!

2015, the year I make my dreams come true!

With 2015 ahead of us, we can’t help but think of our own list of resolutions.

New Years is a perfect opportunity to think about what we want to accomplish in the year ahead.  It’s a chance to think of our goals, both big and small, and a chance to create a plan of how we can attain them. It’s also an opportunity to think of ourselves and how we can improve our own outlook, our health, our intellect, etc… As well as a chance to think of others and how we can give back, offer support and volunteer.

#shopthehood

Here at Little Voice, we are huge supporters of local small businesses – not just because we ourselves are a small business, but because we truly believe in strengthening the economic base of our communities.

Alyssa Gregory’s article The Importance of Shopping and doing Business Locally perhaps says it best:

More and more, people are being encouraged to shop locally. This movement isn’t just a fad, and it has benefits that reach beyond keeping small mom and pop retailers afloat in a difficult economy. The more choices you have, the better the deals you can find. Small businesses encourage competition in the marketplace in a way that mega-corporations just can’t. Because local businesses help grow the economic base of your community, the dollars you spend have a domino effect. In many ways, that money will eventually find its way back to you.

On November 29th, Shop the Neighbourhood!

November 29th is the Shop The Neighbourhood event to promote local commerce! Better known as #shopthehood, this event is a free national initiative of Yellow Pages which supports small businesses and reminds Canadians how local shopping makes a difference in all our lives.

Check out the great deals in your participating city!

Ottawa has a great selection of registered small businesses! To see them all, visit the official Shop the Neighbourhood deals page here!

From apparel to groceries, beauty and wellness, home and garden, sports and fitness, computers and electronics, travel, kids and babies, restaurants and entertainment, there is truly something for everyone!

So, on November 29th … #shopthehood!

Give Thanks, Give Back

And I have no control over which yesterdays I keep and which ones get deleted. This disease will not be bargained with. I can’t offer it the names of the US presidents in exchange for the names of my children. I can’t give it the names of state capitals and keep the memories of my husband …My yesterdays are disappearing, and my tomorrows are uncertain, so what do I live for? I live for each day. I live in the moment. Some tomorrow soon, I’ll forget that I stood before you and gave this speech. But just because I’ll forget it some tomorrow doesn’t mean that I didn’t live every second of it today. I will forget today, but that doesn’t mean that today doesn’t matter.
