Calling all women! Maria Ji, Professional Business & Life Coach, says there are two places to come from - not just ways of being/feeling - a place to come from; Our Essence and our Survival Mechanism. Maria will be taking us through an exercise to discover our Essence of what our life would be like if we came from this place most of the time.

Maria is a Life and Leadership Coach. She is motivating, inspiring, compassionate, and enjoys living life fully. She is a supportive wife and daughter and a respected leader in her field. She moved from Beijing, China to Canada in 2005 to explore the possibilities this side of the world has to offer.

Maria focuses her coaching practice on Leadership and Personal Development. She partners with her clients to remove obstacles standing in the way of their ability to communicate, motivate, connect, and inspire themselves and others. By applying simple tools and practices her clients create satisfaction, power and transformation.

April 25th

1st Annual CVWBN Retreat

We are excited to announce our 1st Annual CVWBN Retreat! The event will take place April 25/26th at Tigh-Na-Mara. So set aside the date on your calendars!

We are thrilled with the line up of presenters. The retreat will tie together the elements of this years topics at our meetings. The first day will be all about Business Development. Our keynote speaker will be the ever popular Cathy Kuzel. Those members that heard her speak earlier in the year and/or participated in the seminar she held, thoroughly enjoyed her, so we wanted to bring her back. There will be another presenter on the Saturday as well that we are in the process of confirming. Stay tuned for that info, but it will be a topic relevant to small business owners and we know members will get a lot out of it.

The Sunday will be all about Personal Development. After breakfast we will be learning about and participating in a Tai Chi demonstration. The retreat will wind up with a session with Lisa Leger. She will be talking about hormones and menopause. She makes her presentations both informative and funny, so it promises to be enjoyable.

There will be free time in the schedule to allow you to have spa treatments if desired or take a swim in the pool, or hangout at the hot tub.
