Lessons!!

I have moved into the family home! I have a separate entrance and everything I need. It’s not the like the big home I was living in, but I am very comfortable here. The previous place, I wasn’t comfortable in at all! In fact, it kept getting more uncomfortable. I take things at face value. When people say something to me, I take it as gospel, which I am learning not to do at my tender age. People seem to have a very different interpretation than I do. I used to go out with a man that always said for a very bright woman, I can be very naive! I didn’t agree than, but now I do and I am learning at my age this has a down side, but also an upside!

‎P.S – I was coming home from a birthday party in Cambridge last night and on my last leg of the journey I took a taxi. When chatting with the driver I learned this guy only drove on weekends but he knows the owner Steve, who is whole other story. Steve is a real entrepreneur. He started from nothing. Before there were mobile phones he used to stop at pay phones to book his next job. Steve doesn’t read or write. He has about 150 cars, all top of the line. He sells cars, repairs engines, does it all and still drives to see what is going on .

Well, back to my driver, he has a  few other jobs, local politician. He also represents an area in Parliament at the European Union‎, but his best job is in the village where he lives.  They were going to close public toilets and he said no, and agreed to clean them every morning himself to set example! (not kidding) Just to keep them open, no one could make up that story!!!

Another P.S – Give the Manchester Concert a view. 3 hours of just good music, with the stars there for the right reasons! Even Justin Bieber, made me Canadian proud!

 

 

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.
