Here’s how to keep coyotes away from your property

Coyotes, while they undoubtedly do serve a purpose in nature as predators, are not one of my favourite species.

This is why it’s important to handle criticism

When it comes to accepting blame, I would imagine most of us wouldn’t describe it as the most enjoyable experience. Being forced to recognize our faults and accept responsibility for them is a somewhat debilitating experience, which is why I believe a lot of us become defiant when faced with confrontation as it serves as … More This is why it’s important to handle criticism
