Overview: Having the Confidence to Succeed! w/ Robyn Mons

Your Host: Roger Knecht, president of Universal Accounting Center

Guest Name: Robyn Mons

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “am I enough, good enough” or “am I deserving”? These self-sabotaging questions that conjure up self-doubt and even the imposter syndrome in business may be common, but they don’t need to persist.


Let’s discuss the emotions many individuals experience as they start and build their accounting business.  This can range from insecurities that may include social anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome and beyond.  It’s more than understanding and identifying them, let’s also discuss coping and dealing with each.


Listen as Robyn and Roger explore the mind, the thoughts we experience when starting and building our accounting businesses.


First Date Ideas: Uniquely Canadian Spots

When it comes to planning a first date, choosing the right location can make all the difference. Canada, with its diverse landscapes and vibrant cities, offers a plethora of unique spots that are perfect for creating memorable experiences. Whether you’re looking for something adventurous, romantic, or culturally enriching, there’s something for everyone. In this article, we’ll explore some of the best first date ideas in Canada that are sure to impress your potential partner.

Explore the Great Outdoors

Canada is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, and what better way to get to know someone than by immersing yourselves in the great outdoors? From coast to coast, there are countless opportunities for outdoor adventures. One memorable option is to visit the Banff National Park in Alberta. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts breathtaking mountain vistas, crystal-clear lakes, and an abundance of wildlife. Take a leisurely hike together, rent a canoe, or simply enjoy a picnic surrounded by nature’s splendor.

If you’re in the Maritimes, consider a visit to Prince Edward Island. Known for its red sand beaches and picturesque landscapes, this charming island offers a romantic setting for a first date. Stroll hand in hand along the shoreline, explore the vibrant local arts scene, or indulge in a delectable seafood dinner at one of the island’s many quaint restaurants.

Experience the Urban Charm

For those who prefer the hustle and bustle of city life, Canada’s vibrant urban centers have plenty to offer. Toronto, the country’s largest city, is a melting pot of cultures and offers a wide range of activities for a first date. Start the day with a visit to the Canadian Lovezoid, a renowned dating site that can help you find the perfect match. From there, head to the Distillery District, a pedestrian-only village filled with art galleries, boutiques, and charming cafes. Enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine as you explore the cobblestone streets and historic buildings.

If you’re in Vancouver, take advantage of the city’s stunning waterfront location. Start the date by renting bicycles and cycling along the seawall, which offers breathtaking views of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Afterward, head to Granville Island, a vibrant hub of food, art, and entertainment. Explore the public market, sample delicious local delicacies, and catch a live performance at one of the island’s theaters.

Embrace Canadian Culture

Canada is a culturally diverse country, and experiencing its rich heritage can be a fantastic way to connect on a first date. In Quebec City, immerse yourselves in the charm of Old Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets, admire the stunning architecture, and visit the historic landmarks, such as the iconic Château Frontenac. Indulge in a traditional French-Canadian meal at one of the city’s cozy bistros, and end the evening with a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the old town.

If you’re in the prairies, consider a trip to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Regina. This museum offers a fascinating glimpse into the natural and cultural history of the province. Explore the exhibits together, learn about the indigenous cultures, and marvel at the dinosaur fossils. Afterward, take a leisurely walk through the beautiful Wascana Park, which surrounds a picturesque lake and offers stunning views of the Legislative Building.

In conclusion, Canada offers a wide range of unique and memorable first date ideas. Whether you prefer the great outdoors, the urban charm of a bustling city, or the cultural richness of historical sites and museums, there’s something for everyone. So, why not take the opportunity to explore the beauty and diversity of Canada while getting to know your potential partner? With these uniquely Canadian spots, you’re sure to create a first date that will leave a lasting impression.
