A little bit about me...
Well first of all, besides my hometown, Barrie, Ontario, my favorite places in the world are Los Cabos, Mexico, and British Columbia, Canada. There's just something about their energy that captivates my heart and sings to my soul. It's grounding and pure. I'm also a mother to three super-talented, intelligent, and kind-hearted kids. I have an amazing, supportive, and loving partner who has been the rock throughout my journey. And I have the best family and friends I could ever ask for. But allow me to go back, just a bit, and I'll tell you when it all started...
Ever since I was little, I was obsessed with making things, and selling them. I drew pictures and sold them to our friendly neighbours, I parked our portable piano on the front lawn and sang my little heart out hoping people would drop money in the peanut butter jar I set out. Do you remember those peanut butter jars, the ones shaped like a bear? It was one of those ones. I made colourful bracelets from telephone wire I would find outside the Bell Canada warehouse and sell them at school for 25 cents each. I made a pretty decent profit doing that. I also watched my father run his own companies for most of my life. So that helped.
Business is in my blood and I started my first business at the age of 23, and more than 20 years later, I'm still here doing my own thing. Showing up, creating from the heart, leading with love, and sharing my gifts with anyone and everyone who needs them.
So what was the magical key to my success? Belief. I'm not kidding, that's where it starts; if you don't believe you can be successful, or that a life of abundance isn't for you, well, then it probably won't be. But, if you believe you can create your own reality and design your own destiny, and if you know in your heart that you have gifts, talents, and priceless value to add to the world, AND get paid while sharing your magic, well then, you're off to a damn good start.
I seem to have this uncanny ability and innate understanding of what people like to see, hear, and most of all, feel. You could call it Empathy mixed with Emotional Intelligence. I also understand how powerful it is when we share our stories and our truth, for this is what creates and builds connection, trust, and genuine relationships. People just don't want to be sold to, they want to buy from real people. People they trust. As I like to say, authenticity is the new advertising.
So, here I am, teaching what I have learned to those who, deep down inside, know they have a bigger purpose in life, one full of meaning, passion, and desire. I'm here to serve those who need some strong guidance and support, and show them that they have the confidence to push through their resistance, fear, and doubt, and break on through to the other side. And let me tell you, the other side is glorious and brilliant, and it beholds your freedom and true magic.
I worked with Vanessa as my coach when I was starting my business and I experienced a huge shift in my thinking just after one session. She inspired and encouraged me to believe in myself and to trust in my dreams. She has a way of getting you to see life differently and think past any limitations. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to grow and evolve beyond themselves.

Do you wanna know what I believe in? I believe in synchronicities and divine timing. I believe that you're not here by "accident," but you're here for a reason, one you may not even know quite yet. I also believe that you're ready and willing to do whatever it takes to make your dreams a reality. To make them tangible and beautiful and I just know that the world is waiting for your gifts.
This is your time to shine. ☆
