With over 30 years in the financial industry, I have worked for Sovereign General Insurance as a supervisor on the commercial insurance side, transitioning to work in the Life Insurance field I worked for Mutual Group/Clarica/Sunlife as a Agency Trainer.

Unable to Manage Debt?

If your debt load feels like it is too much to handle – you are not alone – many people at one time or another have gone too far into debt. Getting your debt load back into shape may take a bit of simple debt management – or it may take more. It all depends on how much debt you can really afford.

If you already know you have more debt than you can reasonably pay back and live in the Greater Toronto Area, contact the experts at David Sklar & Associates – Licensed Trustee – for a Free consultation to explore your debt relief options. Call Jackie Stanley at 416-498-9200 x291 to book your appointment.

Even if your current debt is manageable – will it be manageable if interest rates increase significantly or if you lose your job? Reducing your debt before it is an issue will increase your financial security and reduce your stress load.

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.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.

Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

How Does Reiki Heal?

When our chakras are unbalanced we begin to feel run down, tired, irritable and often experience pain and other health problems. Reiki is a wonderful healing tool and a great complement to conventional medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy and any other form of healing.

Reiki Energy heals by flowing from the practitioners hands, through the affected parts of the individual or animals energy field, channelling it with positive energy and putting your body into a relaxed state. The healing energy raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to unblock and disperse. The Reiki healing energy clears and strengthens the energy pathways and chakras therefore allowing the inner life force to flow in a healthy and natural way. Reiki treatments help ease tension, stress, and helps support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.

In simpler terms a Reiki treatment involves lying on a massage table, fully clothed, listening to music, where at some point you may very well fall asleep as the healing energy is being channelled to you. A Reiki treatment is very relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness, and helps to flush out any toxins and find peace, balance and harmony.

Juvs Pabilonia, Entrepreneur Extraodinaire!

WEWednesdays! Women Empowering Women is elated to Showcase this female entrepreneur extraordinaire as our Mystery Speaker for Toronto Chapter this May 2017. 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.”
