Thoughts for 2015!

I have spent the last 6 weeks in Toronto, thinking and planning my nomadic life for the rest of 2015.

I will be visiting Phoenix for a few days.

In Arizona in a Thunderbird!

In Arizona in a Thunderbird!

For the rest of April and early May, I travel to the UK and Paris! First stop is the UK, specifically Cambridge, where I am giving a public program; the next stop is York, then London, then Paris and back to Oxford.

Plans are underway for a cross Canada speaking trip in June, with various visits to US cities, in July, including my annual visit to Newfoundland.

As many of you know, I have a 2-year sabbatical from OHIP, (Canadian medical Plan) which means I can be out of the country as long as I want and still have my coverage. The 2 years are up in late September, and at that point, I can be out of the country only 7 months out of the year, so I have decisions to make!

Traveling is in my blood and doing projects is also in my blood, and my health is standing up.

One of the ideas I have is to move or spend more time in UK, I was born in England and have a European Union Passport, so I will check it out.

Also, I am still developing BMT (Betty’s Mountain Top) and pushing it along, to where, not sure!

For the rest of the year, I am off to India for sure, maybe Australia, Mauritius, Dubai and Bali, (to be determined)!!!

One more thing, I am writing this on Easter Sunday, one year ago I had just arrived in Athens and my good friend, the late BK Anthony Stranro, had arranged a lovely luncheon for me to meet his interesting friends in Athens. Anthony, I will never forget you and the influence you had on my life (miss you)! Also this week another person, who had a great influence on my life, passed away, Peter Brophy. Peter, in this corporate life was the Vice President of Xerox Canada and met me as Community Volunteer when my kids were little, he offered Xerox to be first client for my consulting company way back when, which was big deal!!!

My job was to do profiles on new Cabinet Ministers in Ottawa, and find backgrounds that would match the business interest of Xerox.

To conclude, I just had my 72nd birthday and I must admit I am proud of that fact!!!

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    Betty you are truly amazing and I am so glad your health and energy levels are holding up. I look forward to learning more about your decisions about where to go and what to do in life! Love, Prue

    I personally hate to lose you to the U.K. but then again skype makes it possible to see you wherever you may roam and eventually settle. Sounds like 2015 is going to be another amazing year. I hope you find your mountaintop because I look forward to visiting you there. Much love and Happy 72!

    Betty, a big decision coming up – perhaps best made on a mountain top!
