Lidija Voljanek, Nutritionist

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase Lidija, an amazing female entrepreneur as our Mystery Speaker in Mississauga this March 2017.

Lidija Voljanek Registered Holistic Nutritionist is passionate about vegan cuisine!

Lidija is holding vegan cooking classes, various workshops and presentations about Juice Plus.

She is organizer of Vegan Food Fair in Oakville and a member of monthly health seminars in a church.

Her motto is to inspire healthy leaving by one simple change at a time!

She is working in Healthy Balance Studio educating people about their health, habits and healthy food choices.

In Healthy Balance we have solution for your pain and emotional issues. Lidija’s husband is Bowen Therapist.
Bowen Therapy takes care of your pain and makes your life pain free.

A little background on Bowen therapy…

Bowen Therapy was developed in Australia by Tom Bowen (1916-1982). After years of clinical work and much reading and studying of other modalities, he developed a unique set of specific moves associated with different sequences and timing intervals. He noticed that when he made certain moves on body, it had particular effects. He always stated that the therapy was simple a ‘Gift from God’. Bowen is now practiced in more then 40 countries.​

The reason that Bowen works so well is because it addresses every system in the body. In reality the connective tissue that surrounds every muscle, tendon, ligament and organ, blends into the connective tissue of another. Simply put, you cannot affect one part of the body without affecting something else.

So instead of specifically treating one area, Bowen treats the body as a whole, because the body works as a whole integrated unit. Once the muscle tissues are activated the body sends neurological impulses to the brain, which in return relax the muscles and the nerves that are not working properly.

Bowen Therapy is completely non-invasive. No needles, drugs, nor machines are required. It is safe for everyone from newborns to the elderly including expectant mother.

Margot L. Denommé LL.B. J.D. – Author

mommy-am-i-pretty-authorsMARGOT DENOMMÉ practices law in Toronto, Ontario, where she lives with her husband Rob and two daughters. The book was inspired out of concern for the social pressures facing today’s youth, including bullying and body image pressures, particularly for young girls that contribute to insecurities and low self-esteem. The story is designed to initiate dialogue with children (of all ages) about finding true beauty from within.

About the Illustrators

MADISON and BROOKE DENOMMÉ-WARREN are high-spirited and confident young girls. Madison, 12 years old, enjoys track and field and volleyball. Brooke is 10 years old and loves acting and paddling. Both girls are passionate about art, and since creating the illustrations for Mommy, Am I Pretty? have been involved in a number of the author events and enjoy answering questions about their artwork in the book.

mommy_cover_400Young girls today are inundated daily with images that create unrealistic and often deceptive expectations of size and beauty. How does growing up in a culture obsessed with outward beauty effect this particularly impressionable and vulnerable demographic? This question amid concerns about raising her own two young daughters sparked the inspiration for her illustrated book, Mommy, Am I Pretty?

While walking home from school young Molly asks her mother what it means to be pretty. Molly’s mother guides her through her day at school, at home and in her community to uncover moments of kindness, generosity and confidence. Molly discovers that small gestures of compassion and friendship give us a loving heart and how trying our best at our favourite activity or sport makes us feel strong and beautiful on the inside. With this discovery she decides that being pretty on the inside is what matters most. Reading Mommy, Am I Pretty? with a child initiates a conversation on how being your best self, giving back to others, and being a thoughtful person is the true image of beauty and one that can’t be created through photo-shop.

The author’s own daughters, Madison and Brooke Denommé-Warren, created the whimsical and captivating illustrations that bring Molly’s day to life. Their hand-drawn and painted illustrations are the perfect complement to the simple verse, offering images of true beauty in the people and world around us from a young girl’s perspective.

MARGOT DENOMMÉ practices criminal law in Toronto, Ontario where she lives with her two daughters. As a mother she is keenly aware of the negative effects media has on growing girls, and wrote this book to encourage dialogue between parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers, and young girls with a view to empower them that true beauty lies within each and every one of them. As a criminal lawyer, Margot has seen the devastating effects of low self-esteem in youth and the ever-increasing incidents of bullying. In 2014, Margot created The Celebrate You Tour to take her message to both schools and community groups to discuss the importance of developing ourselves from the inside-out by being confident, kind, strong, inclusive and unique.

The messages in Mommy, Am I Pretty? have resonated with prominent Canadian groups and organizers including, The Pediatric Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery division of the Hospital for Sick Children and The Dove Self-Esteem Fund Real Beauty Campaign. Margot has also become involved with a number of organizations in the United States including Girl’s on the Run and PACE Center for Girls.

ISBN 978-0-9920340-1-6 • 32 pages • 2015 paperback edition available in US and Canada

Lauren Millman, Marriage and Mental Health Counsellor and Parenting Expert

lauren-pic9-2015WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase this amazing Mystery Speaker that shared her experience as a female Entrepreneur at our Thornhill Chapter.

What Truly is a Healthy Relationship?

Lauren Millman is a highly sought-after Toronto Marriage and Mental Health Counsellor and Parenting Expert, in private practice since 2004, helping Individuals, Couples, and Families improve their lives, and live in harmony and happiness.

The key to any successful and healthy Relationship is communicating well. Communication has many facets, like verbal language, body language and physical behaviours, how well we listen, how well we hear, our responsiveness and reactiveness, how we express our feelings, our facial expressions, and how we use space. All these aspects of Communication translate how and if we are understood, how we understand each other, and how we live socially and successfully, together.

When all these aspects of communication come together, we have healthy relationships.

Relationships take work. All of them.

Whether with your husband, wife, partner, children, in-laws, neighbours, co-workers, or boss, Communication and Behaviour run the show. Validation and Acknowledgment make us feel connected, heard, and of value. When any of these aspects of a relationship aren’t there, we feel invalidated, disconnected, lonely, frustrated, disregarded, and often bullied, imposed-upon, and disrespected.

Relationships are the Basis of Everything

In the course of any relationship, when these important connectors are missing, not only do our relationships struggle and fail to be happy and rewarding ones, but we also tend to struggle and suffer. Asking for help is the first, big step to finding-the-happy again. Strong people ask for help. When we feel weak, we ignore the signs, the triggers, and the issues, and they continue to not only exist, but they fester and often become worse. Ask for help. It’s available. You just have to want more, and better. I’m here to help you, if you’re ready, if you’ve reached your ‘I’ve-had-enough point.’ Are you there? Well, then, lets get you where you deserve.
You deserve to be happy. You do.

I love what I do and I believe that God has placed me in a position to empower people in all walks of life to be good stewards of their money.

Patti Smith, Creating Sacred Wealth

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to showcase Patti Smith, transformational coach destined to empower Women worldwide as our esteemed Mystery Speaker at our Barrie Chapter.

wllcPatti is a native Torontonian, and she relocated to Barrie, with her husband, Paul, in 2004. She spent over 30 years working as a Human Resources professional in both the public and private sectors, specializing in recruitment, training and development, and labour relations, and she spent another 3 years in the area of Corporate Law with firms in both Toronto and Barrie.

After her last employment contract ended in 2006, Patti decided to launch her own business and has been happily self-employed as a ‘serial’ entrepreneur ever since.

In response to the economic crisis of 2008, Patti launched MONEY BOOTCAMP SEMINARS in 2009, to teach basic financial literacy skills which help children, teens and adults learn how to spend, save and grow their money wisely.

Having worked with women from all walks of life, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, Patti is fiercely committed to empowering women to take control of their lives and create financial security, stability and independence for themselves and their families.

Patti founded AWESOME WEALTHY WOMAN INTERNATIONAL in 2012 to provide spiritual business coaching and mentorship to women entrepreneurs, change makers and thought leaders.

Balancing the pragmatic with the spiritual and metaphysical, Patti uses a unique blend of skills, tools and techniques, to help her clients break free from the past and move into action to achieve the business and life of their dreams.

Giving back is an essential part of success and AWESOME WEALTHY WOMAN INTERNATIONAL is proud to be an official business sponsor of Plan International’s ‘Because I Am A Girl’ project, which serves women and girls in 70 countries and provides them with clean water, nutritious food, medical care and literacy training (which includes including financial literacy).

In addition to the regular monthly donations, a portion of all coaching and event fees is used to purchase ‘Gifts of Hope’, which are specifically geared to the needs of women and girls around the world.

Patti offers private and group coaching, online programs, retreats, live events and she frequently speaks to business groups on a variety of topics.

“This program – ‘Creating Sacred Wealth: A Woman’s Guide to Manifesting Money and Miracles’ – is the result of over 20 years of research, study, practical application and is the culmination of my life’s work”, says Patti.

spacer blue

My passion is teaching women how to make meaningful change in their lives.

creating_sacred_wealth_250My particular focus is on working with women entrepreneurs and women who are in transition – out of a job, out of a marriage, out of an abusive relationship. Your “money mindset” is a huge part of why you are where you are right now.

I can help you identify and clear the limiting beliefs, attitudes and habits that are keeping you stuck in “not enough” and start moving you through “just enough” all the way to “Way More Than Enough!”.

I’m here to be your ally as you weed through the “yuck” and start planning for the future you really want.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing 10,000 times and expecting a different outcome.

When you retake control of your life and implement the new strategies I teach, things change quickly.

If you’re ready to stop doing the same old thing, take a stand for yourself, and commit to creating the life of your dreams, please call or email me and we’ll start working on YOUR plan.

Hailee Young, Entrepreneur Plus!

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women – Pickering Chapter is elated to showcase Hailee Young. This young female entrepreneur has risen above extreme challenges and circumstance only to rise up and shine. Her Story will move mountains, and we call upon all readers to reach out to her and support her mission.

Below in her own words, Hailee shares Her Story!

hailee“Since I was 13 I have struggled with both mental and physical health problems. I have struggled with a range of health problems from anxiety all the way to a heart problem. For as long as I can remember I have been on and off different medications, I was only 14 when I was prescribed my first narcotic… a highly addictive sedative. My body became dependent on some of these medications while other medications wreaked havoc on my mental and emotional well-being.

It didn’t take long for me to realize I needed to find alternate route to my recovery. This was the start of my journey on a holistic path. Although this path was a lot healthier for my body it was not easier. I still had to take multiple supplements throughout the day like vitamins, herbs, tea’s,etc and even though they were definitely helping my physical health there was still something missing. When you are leading a busy lifestyle taking supplements 3x a day is not an easy thing to do and although my emotional state had improved it was no where near where I had hoped.

Right around this time my Dad introduced me to multiple different products that had been recommended by a family friend and doctor of natural medicine. I fell in love with them. Firstly, I fell in love with the vitamin patches, a 24 hour slow release technology so that I could get the most out of my vitamins and while keeping things simple. Since then, my family has bought the rights to distribute them in Canada and we are currently in the process of getting them fully licensed. I am so excited to share these with everyone because of the wonders it has done for me. From the sleep patches being the only natural thing that can put me to sleep, to the B12 patches helping me with chronic fatigue, to the hangover patches helping me with… well you get the point.

I am so excited about these!

hailee-cause-kupsAlong with the patches, I fell in love with the mission behind Cause Kups. A coffee company that only hires disabled adults to package and produce their products.

Now I start my morning by giving back, simply by switching the coffee brand I was using. I won’t get into too much detail here but each product is unique in their own way: black oxygen, all natural dogs treats, candles made from reused cooking oils, blooming teas, as well as a fuel additive to clean your car and reduce CO2 emissions.

This is my way to give back to the consumer.

Finally, I big part of my story was finding a purpose. When I was dealing with my mental health problems I found myself feeling hopeless. I asked myself what is the purpose of life, is it worth living if you always feel down? Well I have found a purpose that both inspires and motivates me. My dad and I founded ShopPal together, a company that provides those unique products for consumers while giving back to our local and global community.

ShopPal has been solely based around raising money for non-profit organizations as a portion of our profits will go to different charities, churches, and non profits in Canada (and potentially around the world). Now I wake up feeling good about what I do and in turn I feel good about me. This has truly been a blessing.

We are currently looking for other entrepreneurial minded founders, 100 people in total, to help us build this company and share 30% of all our profits for the rest of your life. This is not an mlm or direct selling company, as there will only ever be 100 founders. If you are interested please email and I can go into more detail with you. Also, if you can relate to anything I’ve gone through and would like to chat or you have more questions about the products please email me. Thank you.”
