IMPACT Business BluePrint for Socially Conscious Entrepreneurs

How to create a Thriving, Sustainable Business that Attracts Your Ideal Client and Team Members and Profitability while having a Measurable IMPACT in the World

I am really excited to be able to share with you an opportunity to take action on using Business as a Force for Good. As I move my business forward to become a Certified Benefit Corporation, I realized how many other small businesses want to make a positive social and environmental impact but don’t know where to start.

Hence IMPACT Business Blueprint. I’m starting this program again on July 11, 2019. There are 6 live sessions (each is recorded if you can’t attend live) where we share information, insights etc. and discuss your questions, have group coaching and more!

Give Yourself the Gift of Inspiration

Have you ever attended a TEDx event?  I have.   Initially I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy listening to speaker after speaker.  I know that when I attend conferences my attention can wain, particularly when the speakers are less than stellar.  My first TEDx event quickly changed my perspective!

During that first event, I found each speaker to be engaging, inspiring or educational and I experienced a roller coaster of emotions.  A fellow public speaker and I attended together and we both were amazed.  We also shared insights on what speaker traits we found engaging or distracting.  We couldn’t help ourselves but it was a great learning opportunity.

At the end of last week I received the information for another up-coming TEDx event.  Every year TEDx Stanley Park features some amazing speakers.  This year is no different!  This year’s theme is “Inspiring Brave Actions“.   Organizers state

” This theme is born from our belief that all human achievement is rooted in 3 elements: the dreams that we dream, the decisions that we make, and the actions that we take. The most impactful of these is the actions that we take. This Inspiring Brave Actions theme guides our selection of talks to those with powerful calls to action that give legs to dreams of what could be.”

I love this year’s theme.  Dreams become reality when we take action!  Action moves us forward as quickly or as slowly as we want to go.  Without action we go nowhere!

TEDxStanleyPark 2018 will happen on March 3, 2018.  It will feature 13 high-impact talks by a range of different presenters.  I am really looking forward to attending.  I’d love for you to join me too!   I’ve been asked to be a Team Leader, for which I am very honoured.

Will You Join Me on March 3, 2018?

I would like to invite you to join me on Saturday March 3 to experience this unique and inspring day.  I have reserved seats in the Balcony Front section of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre for you and your friends, colleagues.  Tickets are only $89 each for this section.   Each ticket holder will also receive 4 Bonus gifts worth $195.

When you select tickets in Balcony Front, you will automatically be seated in my reserved section.  If you order tickets in other sections (which is ok too), you will not be in my reserved section but I hope you’ll join me for lunch (see below).


“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” ―Dale Carnegie

Breakthrough Fridays- A Business Series Launches

I’m excited to launch a brand new business series for the entrepreneurial minded business person.

You don’t have to be an entrepreneur to gain value from this new series… it will help if you are open to new ideas, learning and sharing.  

Why should you join me?  

Learning is a constant when you want to

  • be the best you can be,
  • advance your career
  • grow your business
  • be a better leader
  • capitalize on opportunities
  • learn from others

Great leaders never stop learning.  Professional development is woven into their foundation which encourages them to stretch and grow!  Isn’t this right for you too?

As a business leader and long-time entrepreneur, I cannot imagine not learning.  In fact, my clients are the key reason I continue to explore new writing_block1.1.1.1topics, develop new programs and learn new skills.   I’m certain this is true for you too.

Learning can happen in a variety of ways

You can learn in school settings, on the job, observing others, trial and error.  Today’s technology allows you now to learn via the virtual classroom… from the comfort of your home or office.   I don’t know about you but I like different approaches to learning – depending on the topic.   Sometimes I like to watch a video, listen to an expert, participate in a webinar, from reading current books or getting direct answers to my questions from my Coach or peers.

My clients tell me they enjoy the same options so I have opted to include a variety of different business topics that are current and important to you.

The first session starts this Friday, September 13th at 9 am PT (time zone converter)

The topic:   Juggling Multiple Balls… An Entrepreneurial Challenge.

Click Here to learn more about this week’s topic

I have also chosen to feature different formats, depending on the topic.

Formats may include:

  • Webinars
  • Question & Answer Discussions
  • Interviews with Experts
  • Book Club
  • Group Coaching Sessions

My Goal

To share content rich sessions on current business  topics which you will find valuable and pertinent to your business and career in a format that best meets your needs.

What Do You Say?

Ever wonder what to say when people ask “What do you do?” You know you’ve lost business because your answer lacks that certain “Wow” factor. I know I have. And we all can do better than that!

Imagine this scenario instead…

You’ve got 60 seconds. Everyone is expecting that same old ‘elevator pitch.’ Instead, you wow your audience with your killer 60-second introduction that’ll make jaws drop and heads snap to attention, and attract prospects & referrals. Wishful thinking? Not at all! [Read more…]
