Annie Balgobin, Spiritual Networking

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase Annie Balgobin as our Featured Business celebrated in Pickering Chapter this August. This amazing female entrepreneur has the following to share:

Hello, I am a wife and momma of two grown boys. About three years ago, a spiritual awakening started happening to me. It was around the same time my husband had some health challenges. Healing abilities started to rise to the surface. I wanted to do more and be more. I knew deep down that there were so much more to healing than what meets the eye. I had a vision of me using my hands to do healing work and thought that it to be a massage therapist. At the time, did not know about Reiki. I also had another vision where I was doing spiritual readings for others, but did I did not believe it. This spiritual awakening led me to the work that I do now. I am an energy healer. I channel energy from a higher power for others to heal themselves. I feel this work has chosen me as it was a call from above.

I am Reiki Practitioner, Angel Tarot Card Reader and Elemental Space Clearing Practitioner. I work out of my home based in Pickering. I am truly doing what I love and what is close to my heart. My experiences of receiving Reiki Healing has been profound. I am also seeing how it is shifting my clients.

Consider Reiki

· If you’re feeling a bit disconnected

· If life feels overwhelming for you

· If you’re feeling anxious

· If you’re feeling dis-empowered

· If you’re seeking to enhance your spiritual path

Reiki is a holistic healing modality. Universal Life Force Energy is within all of us and it’s why we breathe, it’s why the blood runs through our vein, it’s why we have thoughts.

Pat Saunoris, The LIVE Program: 180self

Pat Saunoris is a Registered Nurse, wife, mom to two beautiful daughters and a female entrepreneur. She has owned a nursing agency in the 1980s that provided palliative care for clients in their homes and also a Rehabilitation Consulting firm providing case management services to clients who were injured in car accidents.

Most recently her new business venture is 180 self!! This company was designed to assist women to make a lifestyle change towards being healthier and happier!

After owning a successful rehabilitation company for 14 years, Pat now works part-time as a medical consultant with a prominent law firm in Toronto. She is still assisting clients to recover from their injuries sustained in accidents. Pat is dedicated to helping people be the best they can be after a trauma.

When Pat sold her rehabilitation business in 2012 she was exhausted, completely worn out AND had an extra 30 pounds of weight that had creeped on over the years. Menopause, quitting smoking, sporadic eating habits and not enough exercise – and there it was!

Pat made herself a goal to get back to her running which had virtually been non-existent in the past 28 years and to run another marathon in two years time. She started at the beginning again with running , healthier eating and getting proper sleep. Two years later in 2014 she ran the Chicago Marathon (42.1 km) with her family cheering her on!

Pat spoke with a lot of women who wanted to know how she was able to turn her life style around and feel andlook better. This lead to Pat life coaching a few women to change their lifestyle – she believes in slow and steady is the best way to go – Women are all busy and a lifestyle changing program needed to fit into their busy lives and it had to work!

And it does!

At that point, Pat’s friend Val, who was seeing positive results, told her she should tell all women about this Lifestyle Program. So Pat developed 180self and an on line program called LIVE Program!

The LIVE Program is a guide to help women get started – nutrition tips, strategies to healthier eating – a walking program twice per week and a 10 minute weight program once a week that targets areas most women have problems with!

The LIVE program is offered at a nominal one time fee. Pats goal is to have as many women as possible begin a life style change that will result in improved health, weightloss and a feeling of Confidence and Empowerment!

Pat would like to see women stop the vicious 360 circle of diets, gym memberships and home equipment that never gets used. She would like women to turn in a new direction at 180 – and start a life style change they can do themselves!

Independence: This is what 180self is all about!

IT STARTS NOW for Only $29.99 +tx Lifetime Fee

Website: 180self.com
Facebook Private Discussion Group is Available for those that are Registered.

Pat can be reached at: info@180self.com

Women are always taking care of everyone – and often are last on the priority list.

Change that with the LIVE Program at 180 self!

Claudia Mariano, Nurse Practitioner – Skin Care

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this caring nurse practitioner who has taken the leap into the life as a female entrepreneur as our Featured Business May 2017 at our Pickering Chapter: Claudia Mariano

My biggest challenge in starting my business was my own mindset. While I believed in the company​, the products, and the integrity​ of the business model, I had to be very honest with myself about what believed about myself, my relationship with money, and how I want others to see me.

Embracing the vision I have for myself, and understanding the power of my own beliefs, have been the greatest achievements,

and I can’t wait to share them with others so they can live their best lives!

I work full-time as a Nurse Practitioner in Pickering, and am also an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Toronto Faculty of Nursing. Two years ago I wrote and edited a book about Nurse Practitioners.

In Oct 2015 I tried the Rodan+Fields skin care products, and was so impressed that three weeks later I became CEO of my own business and partnered with the doctors to share the results and the opportunity with others.

I was not looking for anything else to do, but I could not pass up the opportunity to become involved with a company that is revolutionizing how we think about business, how we live our lives, and how we treat the largest organ in our bodies, our skin.

I am proud to represent Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. These uniquely effective skincare products are designed by two of the most respected dermatologists in the country with a legacy of delivering on what they promise. I believe that using Rodan + Fields is as close as you can get to visiting a dermatologist � without an appointment.

Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have also taught me that achieving great skin requires more than great products. While you are here make sure to check out the tips from the Doctors, experience our exclusive Solution Tool and read up on the Doctors’ seasonal skin-care recommendations.

Rodan and Fields can truly transform your skin. I have personally witnessed the difference these products have made on people’s skin and in their lives. Along with Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields I am committed to exceeding your expectations and always here to help.

Our team has grown since I first stated my business, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to help people gain confidence and live life on their terms.

Paige Shaw, Sugar Twinz Bakery

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this Future Woman Leader, entrepreneur and true inspiration for all: Ms. Paige Shaw of Sugar Twinz Bakery.

“Hey, I’m Paige Shaw the owner and founder of Sugar Twinz Bakery. I am 12 years old, in grade 7 and I’m a competitive swimmer with a great passion for baking.

I started my business when I was 9 years old with my best friend at the time.

We worked hard to create a little business and never thought that it would become something big. We had our ups and downs with our bakery and finally figured out that it would be better off for me to run the business by myself.

When I took over the business it was a lot harder but it was better for the business.

I started to donate money to Sick Kids Hospital when the business grew a little bigger. I started by donating $100 and now to this day I have donated a total of $600.

I’ve been doing this for the past 3 Christmas’s and even though it gets busy and hard to manage the business it’s definitely worth it to see my customers enjoy my baking and to be able to donate money to a great cause.

My bakery is all based around my families’ shortbread recipe. I got the recipe from my amazing Scottish Gramma. When we stated the business I wanted to make something different and special to sell so I thought of some of my Gramma’s baking. I always loved baking with my Gramma so she was thrilled to teach me how to make her amazing shortbread. Now I make shortbread with some of my own twists to make it even better.

Thank you so much Gramma for all your love and support.

The reason why I really wanted to start the bakery was because I wanted to have fun and make a little extra money. With the money that I make I have been able to pay for a part of the cost for my summer camp. I go to camp Mi-a-kon-da. It’s an amazing camp and it’s like my second home.

I love being with all the other inspiring girls and I have made friendships that will last forever. Thanks to all my amazing customers I have been able to go back year after year knowing that I worked hard to get to camp.

Thank you so much to WEWednesdays! and all the great women that I have met from going to the meetings.

I am so happy to get the opportunity to share my story with all the wonderful women entrepreneur’s that I have met so far. PHOTO: Paige with MJ Rompre, Durham City Host

I have learned so much by listen to what they did with their business and how they were able to succeed.

I really do enjoy going to these events and learning about all the other struggles and successes that other women have gone through to improve their businesses. Thanks again.

Do you struggle with anger, resentment or bitterness trying to escape the feelings but they keep coming up again and again?

Do you have negative self-talk, feelings of self-doubt, and guilt when you do something for yourself?

Do you self-sabotage your efforts feeling something is holding you back but you’re not sure what that is?

You will start to love yourself, to let go of negative self-talk, guilt and self-doubt.

Kamy Kaur Gill – SAS Statement Jewelry

Growing up I’ve always had an eye and passion for jewelry. You would often find me in my mother’s room trying on her makeup and jewelry, walking around like a model! Although it was fun, something about it felt so empowering as if I could take on the world. People know me as always accessorizing my outfits with bold jewelry to give it that “pop”.

This is how SAS Statement was created.

Statement Jewelry is not only bold and unique, it is meant to boost our confidence and take us out of our comfort zone. That is why SAS is committed to having quality jewelry at jaw dropping prices, look like a million dollars without breaking the bank!
