As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison. Nelson Mandela.


On the 100th Anniversary of his birth, we celebrate his life and honour his humanity.

What Age Would You Be?

Live your life and forget your age.  Norman Vincent Peale.

What you did twenty years ago is in the past. It’s now that counts.

The new and the interesting. That’s where the growth is.

There’s no time for green bananas.

If you didn’t know you age, how old would you be?

Creating a Successful Brand

Your premium brand had better be delivering something special or it’s not going to get the business. Warren Buffett.

Creating a company or a brand is like creating a reputation for a person. You must earn it. By doing the right things well, rather than following the crowd and doing things right. By doing the hard work, day after day, after day, after day.

Your brand is a reflection of your thinking, values and character.

In our constantly evolving work arena, authenticity is the most important component of a successful marketing strategy.

The most powerful and enduring brands are built from the heart. They are real and sustainable.Their foundations are stronger because they are built not only with a slick ad campaign but with the strength of the human spirit.

And there isn’t an App for that. At least, as far as I know.

Be passionate and move forward with gusto every single hour of every single day until you reach your goal. Ava DuVernay


Passion is about doing what you love and doing what it takes to get there.

Passion is a motivator. It makes you more effective, efficient, strengthens your commitment and makes you feel better about yourself.

Whatever you do, do it with determination. You have one life to live; do your work with passion and give it your best shot.

When you do, you’ll set yourself on fire!

If you want to light a fire under your project, whatever it is and improve your performance,  text/call 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com. Follow me on Twitter.

Summer In The Park


Parks in a large urban city are special places. They are an oasis of calm; a place of tranquility, a spot where you can connect with nature in the middle of the concrete canyons and ribbons of unending vehicles.

Parks attract people of all ages and from all walks of life but regardless of who they are, they all have one thing in common. They value quietude. Watch them… lovers slowly strolling, arm in arm, along the paths; old men sitting on benches, soaking up the life-giving warmth of the sun; young parents proudly pushing stollers. Then there are others, singlely or in pairs, heads buried in a book or in their digital devices.

Occasionally someone glides by on a bike. Even the animals get into the act: dogs, free of their leashes, unsuccessfully chase squirrels. Birds flutter around, pecking for food in the grass.

Connecting with nature, in any of its forms, is important to your health and well being. It helps to release stress, sooth your spirits and sharpen your senses.

Plugging into nature affords you the opportunity to set aside your busyness, if even for only for a short while… to catch your breath and recharge your batteries.
