Starting a New Journey, Conquering Fears to Follow my Dreams

Pozentivity Inc. represents for me the beginning of a new journey. As a serial entrepreneur, I wasn’t able to resist the urge and the burning need go out on my own again and leave what was an incredible career as the Director of Economic Development for one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, the City of Vaughan.

I always knew life was too short for regrets, having had to fight a battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 17. I was unfortunately reminded of it once again when my father tragically passed away in a motorcycle accident. Not even being able to say goodbye to my father once again made me realize to just how important it is to live without any regrets and to live life as your authentic self. We all have those tipping point moments and for me that was a critical point in my life. Subconsciously I was starting to second-guess where I was in my life and began re-evaluating where I wanted to be in the future.

I have been described as extremely driven and a work-a-holic; attributes that make it very hard to have balance and equilibrium in one’s life. I realized I was no longer on the right path and needed to make a serious adjustment. I needed to re-connect with myself and I needed to follow my passion.

Everything happens for a reason and at the same time as I was going through this self-reflection I was introduced to the SheEO (www.SheEO.World). Becoming one of the founding SheEO Activators and connecting to an incredible group of women leaders, helped to re-ignite my desire to once again become an entrepreneur and follow my dreams.

When I take a closer look at what motivates me and where I find passion it’s in learning, giving back, being challenged to accomplish more professionally, balancing work and family life, making a difference in people’s lives, traveling and experiencing beautiful spas. It is to choosing to live happy and surround myself with positive people. Pozentivity combines all those passions.

In the months leading up to the launch of Pozentivity I received feedback from hundreds of women and it has made me realize the extent Pozentivity retreats fills a gap in the market place: the need for a retreat designed specifically for professional women, where together with their peers they could not only benefit from indulging in a breadth of health and wellness activities like yoga, but also challenge their intellectual side with a focus on leadership, self-exploration and professional development.

Pozentivity is about removing oneself from day to day pressures for a positive and safe place to self-reflect on life, assess where you are, understand what is standing in your way or holding you back, and develop a plan to achieve your personal goals, find equilibrium, and reach full happiness. It is also about developing lasting friendships and a network of fulfilled and accomplished professional women.

This is only the beginning of my journey and I have to say that I am moved by the incredible amount of support from other women. So many women have offered support and encouragement, not because they are going to get something out of it, but because they to want to make a difference and recognize the value of supporting other women. I am inspired but also humbled by this outpouring of support.

 

I know for sure: Your journey begins with a choice to get up, step out, and live fully.

– Oprah Winfrey

I invite you to follow me on this journey. In this new phase of my life I am committed being my authentic self, while helping to make a difference along the way in the lives of other women.

 

You go girl!
