Darcy Herring, Strategy Coach

It’s all about strategies – those that serve us and those that don’t. As a Strategy Coach I have an awesome ability to identify a person’s strategy and make the necessary changes, creating forward movement in the direction of your dreams.

As a mom of a child with anxiety, I have spent the last 4 years trying to win the battle and create a more calming world for my son. What started as a losing battle soon shifted in my favour when I began incorporating my Master trainings and Certifications in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and Hypnosis to ease the fear and curb the anxiety.

By working with the mind and the incredible ability for choice, I now hold the upper hand when anxiety (or other inner struggle) rears it’s ugly head. My work with clients involves teaching them tools and techniques, giving them back control over their lives, and allowing them to win their battle with what’s holding them back.

Bringing CALM to the storm, goals WITHIN reach and FOCUS for performance.

Master Coach: Working with clients to decrease the stress and Anxiety in their lives by teaching them to use the tools we all have inside ourselves as effectively as possible to achieve our desired outcomes.

2 Authenticity – Finding the Strength to be Yourself

Authenticity is about strength and self-respect. It’s about defining you and your life on your terms.

Many of us have lost our voice, lost our dreams, lost ourselves, after years of living for other people. But there’s still something inside of us longing to be seen and heard. We want to live real lives without conforming to the expectations of other people’s dreams, goals and priorities. We want to stop living someone else’s life and start living our own. It’s time to figure out what it is we really want. We have to figure out who we are at the core, after the other stuff has been peeled away.

And that’s what authenticity is all about: It’s about being honest with yourself and with others in order to live the life that you really want. The clearer you get, and the clearer you are, the more your life will come into alignment. The more you’ll attract the people and the experiences that meet you where you are. The more you’ll be able to stand in your own truth, in your own surety, regardless of anyone else’s actions.

It’s not an easy process, but it is a simple one, and that’s what this book is all about. ORDER HERE

Jennifer Schofield, Health & Wellness

When I used to think of the word “entrepreneur”, I was convinced that word would never apply to me. After graduating university with a BA in Psychology (Mount Allison University…go Mounties go!), I knew I wanted to work in an industry where I could help people. As we naturally do, I searched for a career (aka “job”) that I felt could offer me exactly that. Further training in healthcare led to some incredible positions including one where I was the Program Director for a Training School, my dream job or so I felt. Healthcare is a difficult industry and with the many cuts over the year, my school fell victim to these cutbacks. My dream job was no longer. I needed something else, but had no idea where to turn.

As a busy mom of two young girls, who are competitive dancers, and working full-time in healthcare, I could not even imagine adding another thing to my already full schedule. Advancement in my current role was no longer an option unless I was willing to go back to school; something that was not a possibility. With the lack of time, I certainly was not willing to invest thousands of dollars without a guarantee, let alone a possibility for advancement. We certainly know, as women, how busy our days can be!

Then I was introduced to Arbonne. Initially as a client, I enjoyed purchasing products that I knew I could use on my growing children and feel safe with Arbonne’s premium ingredients. Arbonne offers ultra-premium skincare, nutrition and cosmetic products for all ages, that are botanically-based, vegan and gluten-free. With a commitment to never testing on animals, Arbonne’s motto is “pure, safe and beneficial” and this tied in with exactly what I wanted. I was looking for products that were safe (did not use harmful or even worse, dangerous ingredients), beneficial (effective products that create incredible results) and with a green commitment throughout the company that is certainly admirable. Loving the products, I was happy being only a client. That was the role where I was comfortable.

I love my job in healthcare but was tired…..tired of the long hours, commuting three hours a day and limited vacation. So when I was shown the business model, initially I was skeptical. I thought this business was perfect for those individuals with sales experience, of which I had none. Listening to the business presentation I realized that if I did not change something, nothing in my life would change. This was the opportunity I was searching for.

Arbonne’s business model is incredibly fair, equitable and attractive. The thought of being able to advance based on my work ethic, was extremely appealing. Social marketing is a business model that is oft misunderstood, however, once I did my research, I understood that with a generous compensation plan like Arbonne’s, and a healthy environment of supportive individuals, I could become a success. The best part of this plan is that success comes from mentoring others and help them build their own business; it was no longer strictly about sales. I never thought I would become involved with a Network Marketing Company. With a career spent in healthcare and most of my connections remain where I grew up on the East Coast, I did not believe I had the connections to build a solid business here in Ontario. However, once I educated myself on the benefits and possibilities associated with social marketing, I realized that this opportunity was exactly what I had been searching for.

My journey in this business has just begun, but the opportunities afforded to date have been incredible. I have the ability to share ultra-premium products with amazing clients that I have the opportunity to meet on a daily basis. I also have the opportunity to share the business with the others and help them grow into successful entrepreneurs themselves.

Teaching is my passion and my Arbonne business allows me to do this once again.

Arbonne is expanding globally, operating currently in Canada, US, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Taiwan and launching in Germany in 2018. With the use of technology, we are able to build an international business right from our kitchen tables! As my daughter said to me, “you are small town girl trying to build a global business”!

My journey began with a leap of faith and continues daily as I share my passion for this business and help others work towards fulfilling their dreams through this extraordinary vehicle called Arbonne.

This month, Arbonne is offering 25% off our Clear Future products. Clear Future acne products were developed for people ages 12 and older as a complete system to help keep skin clear, and reduce and help prevent acne pimples. Daily, consistent use as a regimen is clinically tested to deliver faster results. For more information on the incredible line of products that Arbonne offers or how to begin your own entrepreneurial journey, please contact me via email at jennschofield@outlook.com , cell number 905-510-4870 or visit my website www.jenniferschofield.arbonne.ca.

Jane Cotnam, Insurance for Children

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this amazing female entrepreneur, who found that through having her own business, has made it been able to create her own schedule and take time off at her choice, Jane Cotnam.

I am a strong woman.

I am a feminist.

I am a mother.

I am an entrepreneur.

I am a perpetual optimist.

I am a dreamer.

I am a volunteer.

I choose to believe the best in everyone.

I have strong beliefs that I am passionate about.

I love a good debate.

Working for myself never seemed to be a big goal when I was younger. I followed the flow; school, job, got my first apartment and started living. The only problem was that I wasn’t happy, but I didn’t know it! I moved from Montreal to Toronto, joined my father’s business and saw what it was like to work for myself. I knew I had found what I wanted to do.

Starting a career in insurance , I immediately gravitated to the group benefits side of the business, and I enjoy it still. In ’84 I assisted in developing the Canadian Organization of Small Businesses, an association plan that allowed small businesses to have group benefits that had previously been unattainable. This later morphed in what is now known as a ‘Chamber of Commerce’ plan. I also put together the first online billing system for group benefits. I am proud of being a dedicated independent group benefit plan broker and advisor, and I specialize in groups that are hard to acquire benefits for.

I got involved with Insurance for Children when I went to a seminar introducing the “fastest growing alternative to the RESP”. When you are a licensed insurance broker, you have to do 30 hours of continuing education every two years, in order to maintain your license. This way, I stay educated on new products as well as rules and regulations from both CRA and our governing board, Financial Services Commission of Ontario.

Insurance for Children took on a whole new meaning for me. It is a product that has been around for 150 years, and the insurance company, Equitable, has been in business for 100 years.

I realized very quickly, how this could help so many parents. It has become personal. I have a daughter who is fighting for her health. She has had to quit her job, which she loved, as she is no longer able to work while on the meds she is on. Had I had this in place for her, I could very easily have presented her with an alternate means of financing herself. She has had to move home, and though I am happy she has, I’m quite sure she would have preferred not to!!

I am a firm believer in giving back. Through my own business, and the fact that I have been able to create my own schedule and take time off, I have volunteered with organizations that touch my heart and mean much to me. I am a hearing-impaired member of CHS (Canadian Hearing Society) and had the privilege of teaching ASL (American Sign Language) to kindergarten children in a play environment. I am still a member of the CHS Board. I was also involved in the Weekend to End Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer Canada (following my mom’s passing) and that lead me to being a Palliative Care Liaison Volunteer running workshops at Credit Valley Hospital. I have also volunteered with my children’s schools as a fundraising chair. This coming September, I will have the honour and privilege of volunteering at the Invictus Games.

Being an entrepreneur has allowed me to be available for all the big events in my family’s life. With four kids and four dogs, life is always busy, bordering on hectic. I wouldn’t change any of it!

“Nevertheless, she persisted.”
