There's so much secrecy, embarrassment, or even not wanting to brag engrained in us about wealth, that it stops people that need some guidance from getting it, and stops others from celebrating their successes. I wanted to create a safe, supportive and fun space for women to connect, share and collaborate to build more wealthy futures.   If you're interested in joining our next event, please use promo code Early50 to save your seat here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/women-and-wealth-social-club-may-meeting-tickets-16755150105   Can't wait to see you on May 12th!   Best, Ingrid   **Use promo code Early50 to save 50% off your ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/women-and-wealth-social-club-may-meeting-tickets-16755150105

Celebrating Like The Stars – For Less
August 22, 2013 at 10:15 am 0

Ah, the final lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer! Well, I’m not so sure about lazy, but crazy is a good way to describe my family’s summer! Between packing and unpacking suitcases for family trips, chauffeuring my kids to play dates, and keeping up with my own hectic work schedule, I barely get any time to relax and unwind.

My girlfriends and I decided that this summer was going to be different, and that we were going to make it a priority to spend more time having fun together. After reading a few articles about how celebrities revel in style, we came up with a few fun ways that we could whoop it up just like the stars! Below I put how the stars are celebrating, and then below what you can do to celebrate celebrity style for less!

Calling All Ladies Who Want More Out of Life
July 12, 2013 at 5:33 pm 0
Since I stopped working for other people and started working for myself I can honestly say that I've had very little "work stress". I love what I do, I love my clients, and I love helping people who have a hard time figuring out how to actually get clients to buy from them, how to do it. When I was starting my business, I made the VERY smart decision to learn how to sell. After all, without sales, you don't have any money, and without money, you'll have way more stress, and way more worries than you ever had working for someone else. Not exactly what you signed up for, right? The first training program I ever took was a program that taught me how to give great sales presentations from Lisa Sasevich. It was a mental stretch for me to get this down pat, but after my 5 week course I gave my first presentation. There were only 4 people in the room, and that's much less than I normally present to. I was a tad worried nobody would buy, even though I knew that my marketing training would help them immensely. Lo and behold, I presented, and followed Lisa's advice step by step. And when I went home, I had a total of $2,600.00 in sales. Not bad for 2 hours of work! It was the beginning of a big (and very profitable) transformation in my business. And it keeps on getting better and better. I'm not telling you this to brag. I'm telling you this in case you're in a job you hate and you don't know how to step out and start your own thing, or you really want to start working for yourself (maybe even while you still have the "security" of your regular job) but don't know where to start, or even if you have already started your own business, but you're not making the money you want, and you just want an easy step-by-step way that tells you exactly what you need to do to get people to buy from you. If your ears are ringing and you're thinking "Hey, that's me!" I'd like to introduce you to my friend Lisa Sasevich, the Queen of Sales Conversion. Lisa has been able to actually accomplish what everyone else only talks about -- she's grown a multi-million-dollar business from scratch, from home, in 5 short years with 2 young children in tow. And the best part is she's spilling the beans in her complimentary 6-Figure Teleseminar Secrets "Love Your Life" Blueprint Training Series. http://tinyurl.com/mof86v6 It all starts with the first content-rich video: "How to position yourself." This is the #1 thing you MUST do in any selling situation (and chances are you either aren't doing it at all or -- no offense -- but you could be doing it WAY better.) PLUS you'll learn the #1 tool Lisa has ever found to build your list fast, expand your reach and create your first information product while getting paid for it! It won't be up for long so I highly suggest taking the time to watch now: http://tinyurl.com/mof86v6 I wish you all the success, prosperity and personal and lifestyle freedom! Ingrid P.S. As you may know (and may have experienced yourself first-hand) growing your business while balancing the rest of your life is easier said than done. Let Lisa walk you through her steps to making BIG money and a BIG difference doing what you love (and without compromising your life). Here's that link again: http://tinyurl.com/mof86v6 P.P.S. The 6-Figure Teleseminar Secrets "Love Your Life" Blueprint Training Series is free and there is no cost or obligation, but you should know I am an affiliate of Lisa's, which means I believe in what she's doing and if you invest with her one day, she may float me a commission.

Is this your chance?
January 16, 2013 at 12:53 pm 0
So far 2013 has turned out to be a pretty amazing year so far. It started out with an Easy to Follow New Years cleanse that has left me lighter, brighter and sleeping so much better. I'm still essentially doing the cleanse, I guess you would say it has become a part of my lifestyle. I'm so excited to not look tired everyday, and if I didn't do this cleanse I would have realized this. Then, I had lots of personal realizations about my life, my dreams, and I set myself a totally outrageous goal - I want to be a recognized media personality for small business marketing by 2017. There, I've proclaimed my intentions! I am so excited to step up, step out and make this dream a reality! What about you - what's your "big dream"? If starting your own successful business, or elevating your current "hobby" in a profitable business, is one of them I've got a real treat for you. My mentor, Ali Brown, is hosting a free 4 hour session where she's going to show you what you need to do to start your own business, or finally turn a profit on your hobby. You see, like me, Ali was working in a corporate job, and she just wasn't finding it fulfilling. Sure, it paid well, and she got to work on cool projects....but there was something missing... One day she met a freelancer who came into the office worked on some projects, got paid extremely well, and then he'd be done his project and he'd take his family on long vacations. And it got Ali wondering...why can't I do that? The cool thing is, there's actually no reason why you can't do it! If you dream of more freedom in your life, determining for yourself what your income will be (instead of a grumpy boss who never wants to give you a promotion), and being able to live flexibly; whether that frees up time for travel, more time with family, or just a different lifestyle...this is your chance. Here's the link to join this free session: http://bit.ly/UROkwV Ali has helped thousands of women transform their lives and their businesses. She's helped people start businesses that are worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, and some that bring in millions a year. And if you're thinking that's something you want for you life, I'm thinking 2013 is your year! Here are some details to consider: - today at 5pm EST (Wednesday, January 16th, 2013) - it's free (i.e. you have nothing to lose) - Ali has built her own million dollar business so you are learning from someone who knows how to do this, and what you need to avoid (man, I wished I'd learned this at the start of my business!) - for women only (that means no boring and ego-y guys that dominate the program talking about how awesome they are, or going bananas talking only about numbers, charts and graphs...yawn. Thankfully it's not like that!) - for people wanting to start a business, if you have a business and want to make it bigger/more profitable, or if you're an experienced entrepreneur that has hit the income ceiling that happens around $150,000.00 and want to break through into the millions Here's the link where you can sign up: http://bit.ly/UROkwV If you're wondering why you're getting this invitation let me be honest - starting my own business was the best decision I've made in my life. It has been totally transformational. I have freedom over my time, a great income, and I'm totally in control of how I live, what I do, and when and how hard I work. I love being in control! I also love seeing other women achieve this freedom in their life. It's truly unmatched in terms of *gifts* you can give yourself. So I share this invitation with you in case you're the kind of girl that have always wanted to do something for yourself, but weren't sure how to go about it. If I had to give my top 3 reasons why I love working with this mentor here it is: 1. I've put some of her advice into action and made about $20,000 more because of it 2. She's nice and fun! That may seem like a silly reason, but I want to have guidance from someone who makes me feel good, who laughs, and who genuinely cares that I'm successful. I don't want to learn from some super boring numbers guy that is going to give me advice that is not "girl friendly" or tries to push me to be or do something that just doesn't feel like "me". 3. Surrounding myself with other successful entrepreneurs is incredibly fulfilling. I love having a network of women that I can ask questions to, get support from, and learn from, and they're all really nice, fun, fashionable and cool people! I hope you'll join me at this free training - it's made a big difference in my life and it can in yours too. Here's the link again: http://bit.ly/UROkwV xo Ingrid

I know there has been some serious radio silence from my end - all due to 2 moves, running a booming small business, and a newborn baby - but I needed to end this silence to send you an invitation to something that could seriously change your life. If you've been tempted to start your own business then you MUST join this free video training program from Ali Brown. She's my mentor, and keeps me on track to get motivated, increase my income, stay organized, and also stay sane while working and taking care of a 5 month old baby girl! Here's the link where you can sign up: http://bit.ly/Temr2u

When September rolls around many of us see the kids go back to school, the leaves start to drop, and we start to get motivated to make some positive changes in our own lives. For me, that motivation came in the late summer of 2009, when I started my own Marketing company for the Real Estate and Personal Finance industries, and I've never looked back. I have total freedom, great clients, and I can make a nice living for myself. One of the main challenges is finding a support group of like minded, business savvy, fun-loving, and super supportive women who are in the same boat, and understand exactly what you're going through. That's why I joined Ali Brown's program. I had a 2 week old newborn, and I moved from Toronto to Niagara on the Lake, Ontario (a tiny historical town that has mostly seniors if you're not familiar). It was a big change! I knew no-one, I had a baby the slept about 20 hours a day, I needed some adult stimulation, and to keep my business on track. When I found this group of ladies I couldn't have been more excited. They all have well-rounded lives and huge businesses that provide them with 6 and 7 figure incomes; they travel the world, take great care of themselves, have money to spare, are genuinely nice and extremely supportive, they want to see everyone succeed and they'll help you build your own success story, and live life totally on their own terms - my kind of ladies! So, if this is ringing true to you too, make sure you sign up for this free training program. It could be the best thing you've done for yourself in many years. Here's the link again: http://bit.ly/Temr2u Some details to consider: - it's today - so check it out as soon as you get this - it's free (i.e. you have nothing to lose) - Ali has built her own million dollar business so you are learning from someone who knows how to do this, and what you need to avoid (man, I wished I'd learned this at the start of my business!) - for women only (that means no boring and ego-y guys that dominate the program talking about how awesome they are, or going bananas talking only about numbers, charts and graphs...yawn.

Free Metric Concert in Union Station, Toronto
August 3, 2010 at 4:57 pm 0
Metric That's right. What's better than free stuff in the city in the summer? According to the Toronto Star Metric is putting on a free show this Wednesday, August 3rd at 7pm at Union Station. Here's the full story directly from the Toronto Star Entertainment Reporters Ben Rayner and Bruce DeMara: Hot Canadian rock band Metric will play a free concert outside Union Station on Wednesday night. Samsung Mobile announced the show on Tuesday without naming the band. But a source within the band’s camp confirmed Metric was it. “It’s true. It’s all happening. It’s not really a big secret or anything.” And details of the event — going down at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Union Square Plaza — were leaked via Twitter and readily available online mere hours after Samsung started dropping hints on its own Twitter feed. One clue read: “I wonder who this band is going to be? Is it The Beatles or could it be the Rolling Stones?” That brings to mind Metric’s hit song “Gimme Sympathy,” which includes the lyrics, “After all of this is gone / Who’d you rather be? / The Beatles or the Rolling Stones?” Apparently, the only reason Metric’s identity was kept secret was to appease city officials worried that a giant crush of people would wind up on Front St. That will almost certainly be the case now that the cat’s out of the bag. Drivers, you’ve been warned.
