Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

I’ve always been the kind of person who avoids exercise at all costs. Back in high school, I’d choose the weightlifting option in gym class while everyone else went to play indoor soccer. This decision was partially motivated by the fact that I could sit on the leg press machine for forty minutes doing absolutely nothing, and partially to avoid an inevitable indoor soccer injury (usually in the form of a broken nose).

This transition was an opportunity for me to apply everything baseball has taught me into the corporate world. The …

For years, I approached my goals the same way. I’ve set goals for starting, for stopping; for being quicker; for slowing down; for earning more; for spending less; for health, fitness, productivity, and for simply doing more with less.

TMX Finance® Family of Companies Safety Program

TMX Finance® Family of Companies Safety Program

I’ve been with the Company for 4 ½ years now.

The first reactions most people have when discussing insurance are that the subject is dry and boring. And, yes, I admit, there are elements of working with insurance claims that are indeed dry and boring.
