Some call us gurus, spiritual teachers, life coaches, writers, speakers or simply friends. We see ourselves as two humble beings with big hearts, filled with love and genuine passion to be of service to others.
Through our trials and tribulations from the school of life, we have been lead to embark on a spiritual journey that has helped us come to the true essence of our being. This has allowed us to identify our passion and purpose to uplift, inspire, empower and motivate every being we come into contact with.
Once we were able to end the illusions of self-suffering we all experience in this physical body, we decided to set out as messengers to help others do the same. It was through our teaching and writing which we were able to help family members and friends dissolve all that no longer served their being, setting them free to realign with their authentic self. It was here when we asked ourselves, what else can we do with our writing ability?
By applying what we have learned over the years as writers, and from continuous requests from friends of friends, we realized that we can be of great service to others through writing, in a variety of ways. Blogging and completing our book, were our tools of variety. Being able to help others free themselves from jobs that keep them feeling trapped, encouraging them to take the leap into what ignites their passions and make a living from them, to helping formulate their passions in words on a website, we achieve our missions by helping you achieve yours.
Thank you for visiting our site and calling upon us in times of need. It’s because of YOU, that we continually give our all, to bring out the best in you, while giving you the best of us.
Why We Blog
We love to write, to inspire and to share. We want to consistently show you that, whatever obstacle you may encounter or whatever life situation you may face, you always have the ability to evolve from present circumstances and live abundantly!
From hearing and seeing the positive impact we have made in the lives of our readers and clients, our passion continually grows stronger.
Our brand name evolved from something often overlooked, a penny. This is something which seems so small, when removed from the whole. When added to the grander scale however, this humble beginning, holds within it, infinite power to create positive change. As we contemplated the penny and thought of its relevance throughout the ages, we said aloud;
whether it be one cent or one life…nothing is insignificant, everything matters.
And so our journey begun and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you and be a part of yours.
Christopher Bisnath: Co-founder
Christopher’s passion for inspiring others and recognizing their true self-worth comes from his background in Psychology and Business. As a graduate of the Psychology program at York University, he steadily applies an interactive approach with his clients, to help create their desired changes, by first helping to rebuild their sense of self-worth. By valuing our skills, interests and abilities on a mental level, we are then able to use these same treasures to create our desired lives.
As a constant learner, Christopher went on to strengthen his skills by studying international business administration, so that he may better understand the complexities of balancing our work lives with our personal lives. From what he has learnt about this balance, he aims to teach clients that if we do what we love, our health, sense of self-worth and all our daily life experiences, will be enriched in ways we may have never even imagined.
