The delightful mother-daughter duo of Cindy-Lea and Taryn Stephenson of Once Upon a Tea Leaf shared their story with members of Women’s AM and encouraged us all to do the same for more authentic and impactful business and marketing. Taryn highlighted how building a tribe and focusing on philanthropic efforts within the community greatly benefits everyone. “Share The Love” and “Miracle on 224th Street” are current promotions being offered and everyone is welcomed to stop by the shop to enjoy the seasonal charm being steeped.
Kevin Holte of ExecutorProtection led members of Women’s AM through an informative presentation designed to help us “protect our family from the coming storm” in dealing with end-of-life issues. With the unpredictability of our mortality, we are encouraged to take Action, Plan and Prearrange to avoid added and unnecessary stress for those administering our estate. We learned details on the “9 Struggles Executors Face” and Kevin highlighted the steps to be taken to properly prepare and get our ducks in a row!

The subject of medical cannabis is controversial, but better understanding through education will help us to learn about its potential benefits as a treatment option. The volume of information available is overwhelming, however, Linda Shanks fromCanniMed, provided an enlightening presentation which included a thorough medical explanation; she outlined the CanniMed products (as a licensed and regulated producer), and she concluded by answering several of our attendee questions relating to this subject.
Medical cannabis is not for everyone, but it can be a good fit for patients suffering from serious chronic and terminal illness. Consult with your doctor about medical cannabis therapy, and if you have any questions, there is a staff pharmacist at CanniMed who is available to take your call at 1.855.787.1577 / www.cannimed.ca / E. email@example.com
Barbara Morgan led the Women’s AM Members through the very serious subject of Emergency Preparedness in a captivating manner by adding her sense of humour which set us all at ease and better able to absorb the importance of being prepared for a state of emergency, whenever that may occur. Although situations range in severity, Barbara highlighted the significance and community impact we will quite possibly face. By becoming more informed and better prepared, we will all transition through these times much easier and minimize potential suffering. Personal, Community, Neighbourhood and School Plans must all be considered, and of course, we must not forget our pets when it comes to getting ready.
Vicki McLeod intrigued us with the title of her presentation, “WHY GOAL SETTING DOESN’T WORK”. Of course, goals are necessary, but her message encouraged us to first clearly identify what we truly want, to focus and work on the resistance rather than the goal or result, and consider what ground conditions are needed to overcome.
Vicki highlighted that our WHY should give us “goosebumps” and we must have a deep connection with our innermost self/truth which takes time and give us Permission to Pause.
Vicki’s vision is that people live rich, authentic lives – recognizing and embracing their soulfulness, creativity and joy in being human. By doing so they will fall deeply in love with themselves, thereby fully loving others and creating a compassionate and peaceful world. To learn more, visit www.vickimcleod.com.
Join Women’s AM for our next meeting on Thursday, March 8th at 7am – stay-tuned for details.
