Juvs shares: In 2005 , I had a pinch nerve on my neck that gave a clot in my head and caused vertebral dissection (TIA) this terrible thing left me with bad migraine headaches I carried on for over 10 years and caused me to gain weight.

Burn + Control (Gourmet Coffee)

We wake up to it, do business over it and relax with it over a good meal to the tune of more than two billion cups worldwide each day. Tall or short, hot or cold, with cream & sugar or simply black, there’s no denying the power of a great-tasting cup of coffee. It gives you energy, helps you think and and can now help you fight the weight loss battle.

Created by coffee lovers for coffee lovers, Javita understands what you want (and expect) from your coffee, which is why ours offers you MORE energy and stamina, plus we’ve infused some herbs (yerba mate and garcinia cambogia), so it doesn’t just taste great, it’s great for your waistline too!*

With a history of use that dates back to the 16th century, these herbs are now held in high regard for their ability to help lose weight by jump starting your body’s natural fat-burning abilities (yerba mate) and exercise better portion and appetite control over your cravings (garcinia cambogia).*

Our Coffee

We start with estate-grown South American Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, picked at the peak of ripeness, expertly blended and slow roasted to preserve the delicate flavors and aromas. With the roasting complete, the beans are fi nely ground and processed to the top mixing and solubility standards for a premium instant coffee.

Our coffee is then blended with a proprietary mix of “burn + control” herbs and packaged in individual serving stick packs! It has taken us a long time to perfect this process, and the smooth, rich fl avors, delicate notes and freshness will prove it! All you have to do is add water to enjoy the perfect cup of coffee – instant empowerment!

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to Showcase this female entrepreneur extraordinaire as our Featured Business for Toronto Chapter this month.

This powerhouse energized all in the room with her Amazing Journey!

Everyone has a story to share and I believe that mine is something worth sharing with everyone. My goal in life is to inspire others to believe in and do more for themselves … and trust in new beginnings!

I moved to Canada over 20 years ago. I’m a nurse by profession and was involved in teaching fitness class for seniors for over 2 years. I have 2 amazing daughters, Casey is now 19 years old. My youngest Maryam is 6 years old.

In 2005 , I had a pinch nerve on my neck that gave a clot in my head and caused vertebral dissection (TIA) this terrible thing left me with bad migraine headaches I carried on for over 10 years and caused me to gain weight.

“I gained over 50 lbs and grew froma size 0 to a size 12 dress.”

“I was miserable but life went on for me.”

In the same year, I started working for BELL Canada and becomes one of their most successful Sales Representatives, Trainer and Coach. I was with BELL full time until November 2014.

In 2012, while still employed with BELL, I opened up my very own home staging company.

It gave me a lot of new confidence in building a real estate business and developing relationships.

I can say that both in business and my corporate work, I did very well. I was satisfied.. however, I found myself wishing I had more time to focus on things I enjoy like travel and spending more time with my kids.

“My resources were good but I had no time to really enjoy the life I always envisioned to have.”

In March 2014, an old friend asked me to try her weight loss coffee.

“I was not expecting that day would have changed my life forever…”

I did go to her place for samples not knowing anything about network marketing. I did sign up to get the discounts. The entire purpose of me joining is to lose weight and get discounts on the products only at that time. After nearly 14 days of drinking the coffee, I started seeing amazing results and people started asking me what I was doing, as weight loss was already being noticed.

From that moment, I shared my website with everyone who asked and started getting a lots of attention. It took me 6 months to finally start learning about the business.

Turns out that the simplicity of this business called ‘network marketing’ is something that suits me and my personality. To make the long story short, I was able to partner with the top leaders in the company, and slowly started to appreciate not only the health benefits of the products, but the financial reward of this industry.

In less than 6 months, by just simply following the system, I was able to get rewarded with a brand new BMW.

My success attracted more people to join me!

I am so happy that I am able to inspire others to really work on achieving their goals. I am able to get the support from all my leaders, and achieved the opportunity to travel the world as I share the benefits of our products and the financial opportunity that comes with it. In the last 16 months, I have traveled across south east Asia, Europe and North America. I am now able to send my eldest daughter to the UK to study law and give my girls one of the best vacations ever!

Right now I’m making a 6 figure income and still growing non stop, not only in Canada but across the world .

My mother has been insulin free for over 2 years now because of the products. Thanks to this business, I have been able to change a lot of lives positively, inspire others to reach their full potential, make friends and secure my future. Today, working to grow my business has become very manageable; and I have more time now to do the things I love and spend time with my kids.

This industry of network marketing has truly changed my life.

My goal is to continue this journey to inspire others to change their lives positively, one cup at a time.

The Dollar Coffee Club (DCC) is Javita’s Preferred Customer program – offering its product line of healthy coffees, teas and other functional beverages for $1 a cup, dispelling the notion that products sold through network marketing need to be premium priced.

The DCC not only provides customers healthy, great-tasting, premium coffee for only a buck a cup, but Preferred Customers also receive FREE shipping and a Loyalty Rewards Program where they can earn FREE product.

The Dollar Coffee Club was created to provide our Members with the best possible business opportunity,” said Javita’s Founder Stan Cherelstein. “The DCC is unique and provides our Members a real competitive advantage. It has become clear that the internet has changed the buying habits of all consumers and therefore all companies must adapt. The ease of access to product information and pricing has changed the game.”

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

Facebook Private Discussion Group is Available for those that are Registered.

Pat can be reached at:

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

Change that with the LIVE Program at 180 self!

W. J. R. Halyn, Entrepreneur!

Toronto Chapter at WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women was elated to showcase a very special male Mystery Speaker. Mr. Wayne Halyn, creator of Grilchys, offering a new business opportunity for any entrepreneur that is seeking a lifestyle that will allow them to Build a Business with reasonable up front costs, portable application, work own hours and more …

wayne 2What happens when curiosity, experimentation, and a drive to make delicious sandwiches all happen about the same time? What can happen is an opportunity to make some amazingly tasty hot grilled cheese sandwiches and a resultant business opportunity. Let me tell you how it happened…

Some time in 2007, I was making some grilled cheese sandwiches for friends, when I thought of adding a few spices to the recipe and see what happened.

The result was a series of compliments saying these were the most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches they’d ever eaten. And a progressive, detailed process was born.

The Grilchy’s website was opened in 2008, a simple one answering some questions people had about the Grilchy’s process and brand, showing the concept and where it was headed.

Over the next seven-plus years, in spare time, the original spice recipe was carefully tweaked, modified, and tested frequently, eventually bringing it to TWELVE tasty and complementary ingredients. And during that time, three more flavour-accents were developed to taste like some other famously delicious well-known treats: tacos, pizza and a spicy piquant taste for the adventurous.

Wayne in cart 01(s)During this time we were also reviewing the business models that hot-dog and hamburger vendors were using… portable carts or food trucks that served the public right at the road, in high-traffic areas in the city. These “street meat” vendors had certain restrictions, such as never being able to vend at indoor locations, because their carts used propane gas. But the idea of providing an appetizing grilled snack/meal for a reasonable price in popular locations anywhere (indoors or out) never left me, and in early 2016 I developed the first cart and process that systematized and solidified the Grilchy’s taste experience.

And as it all came together into a proven, working and documented system, I began to hear inquiries from people who said that when the process was complete, they’d be interested in hearing if they could acquire a franchise of this product.

All of these things became involved in the launch this year of the Grilchy’s Grilled Cheese Canadian-Style Hot Sandwiches venture. Our final leg of research is demonstrating the concept in a number of busy venues and testing the popularity of it in locations throughout the region. Grilchy’s is in that proverbial and exciting “start-up” phase right now, working with people who also see value and potential in the long-term business model… entrepreneurially-minded people who can be part of the venture right from the beginning, and help influence the direction the business will evolve in.

It all starts with a straightforward model that can develop in the right directions, but holding onto the core vision that guides what we do…

“Grilchy’s. Doing one thing… deliciously.”

ORGANO: Change Your Coffee, Change Your Life!

Jacinta Whelan and Michelle Simpson – Change your coffee, change your life.

Jacinta at the Head of the Table

Jacinta at the Head of the Table

If you know Jacinta Whelan at all you know what a dynamo she is. As an Intuitive Life Coach and Seminar Leader, Jacinta is passionate about people. Through her seminars and coaching she works with people to tap into the deepest part of themselves, she assists them in bringing their natural gifts and talents to the surface, and empowers them to create an authentic and powerful life. It is no surprise that she is now doing this as well in her Healthy Coffee business with Organo Gold.


Jacinta was recently introduced to the healthy coffee, tea, and hot chocolate of Organo Gold and when she saw the business model she decided to join them as an independent business distributor.

Organo Gold is a Canadian company that infuses all of its beverages with Ganoderma which is an ancient Chinese mushroom that is known as the King of herbs. It has many health benefits. The company is eight years old and now has distributors and customers in 51 countries.

Jacinta realized that now she could offer people a healthier coffee and tea experience at a better price but she could also help people build a business from something that people were already consuming. Jacinta says now I enjoy a healthier and better coffee, and I get to work with people from around the world to empower them to succeed and we get to have fun doing it together.

Jacinta says, “I met Michelle Simpson through networking at WEWednesdays. She gave me a ride home one night as we live in the same neighbourhood. I few months ago I was hosting a healthy coffee tasting and info session and I invited Michelle as she lived in the neighbourhood. Michelle had tasted Organo’s healthy coffee before and when she saw the business model she came on board and joined me in the business. Michelle is the owner of Diggity Dog and Lonsome Kitty Hotel, with full grooming services in the west end of Toronto. She is passionate about holistic health and loves good coffee. She was already a fan of Organo’s coffee especially the organic king of coffee and she knew that she wanted to create an extra source of income to give her the freedom and the choices that she wants as she gets older, so consuming the Ganoderma infused coffee and teas and joining the business was a natural fit.”


We are now working together to help educate people about the health benefits of Organo’s healthier products, and are offering people a healthier, better coffee, tea, and hot chocolate experience. We are also seeking out like minded people who want to enjoy the health benefits of the products as coffee customers in our business, but also people who would love to generate an extra source of income by partnering with us and having their own international coffee business.

We are supporting and encouraging each other and we are learning and growing together. We are enjoying the health benefits and we are having a great time sharing the product and educating people about the both the product and the business. We have different skills, talents, and strengths but when we come together we all achieve more and have a lot more fun along the way. I encourage you all to come out and meet us at one of the WEWednesdays events and try some healthy coffee or tea. One or more of our team members is usually present at the meetings and we always have a supply on hand for you to taste and experience.

Visit us here as WEWednesdays! got snapd in Toronto.

garysearsMy mother (Joy Garden) was a huge influence in my life. She was a brilliant woman (active Mensa leader) with so many skills and talents.

A die-hard feminist from her teens, Joy was a certified accountant like my dad, and among other things, was also a very talented artist, a graduate of OCA in her day.

In business, she was an incredible visionary, a natural leader who took her ideas to new levels that in those days were mostly unimaginable. She designed and they manufactured over 1,000 products that changed the entire leather goods and gifts industry.

At the height of their business career in 1973, Joy and Murray mailed out over 50 million catalogues yearly to customers around the world, and their business was ranked alongside Sears Roebuck as one of the largest catalogue companies in the world.

Julia Katsivo, Dream Life Speaker/Success Coach

JK_email_sig_finalJulia Katsivo is the founder of Julia Katsivo, a social enterprise whose mission is to produce and distribute communication products that create productive people and functional societies for a greater tomorrow. She does this through one on one coaching, motivational speeches, workshops, several day events, retreats, and conferences tailored for professionals in career transition and the disengaged employee. Julia helps people safely transition from their corporate job and into their dream life.

Julia Katsivo’s educational background is in the Arts from Western University (formerly University of Western Ontario), York University and University of Toronto. She has 17 years working experience in communications, conflict-resolution, market research, B2B and B2C sales and collections for some of North America’s largest private organizations and the Canadian federal government. In all capacities including an extensive volunteer history with social programs, Julia Katsivo has motivated internal and external clients to adopt self management tools for greater life engagement and productivity.

After working for 17 years for some of North America’s Fortune 500 companies and the Canadian Federal government, I decided to face head on the gnawing feeling in the core of my soul that let me know my life wasn’t right. I wasn’t utilizing my God given gifts as they were intended, and even though I motivated people internally and externally to become all they could be, I wasn’t fully walking my talk. All the different employment positions and opportunities helped me gain important skill sets and learn and practice work ethics required to succeed in the business world, but I was not a full expression of myself. I was also not comfortable with the restrictive cubicle 9 – 5 existence no matter the pay grade.
Having tried entrepreneurial ventures in different capacities throughout my childhood and early adulthood and having failed, I was very much afraid of leaving my stable and guaranteed job to live out my purpose and passions which include fiction writing. So I did things differently. I started a process through faith and self-development that enabled me to safely transition from the corporate and into the entrepreneurial world. I made sure to start with me (my identity, self-worth, fears, habits, strengths, weaknesses) as I incorporated necessary outside elements (financial, vision, plan, core circle of family and friends, supportive and learning events). This strategic planning and implementation is what helps me successfully ignite others to believe in themselves so that they can fulfill their dreams from childhood.
