Leading Moms: Where Passion and Motherhood Come Together

SMALL BUSINESS FEATURE
2

As mothers we are each so unique, yet we all strive for the same things, confident in our life choices and being loving mothers. With our goals and passions in life aligned we can join together and learn from each other, talking about where we started and the journey we are on to get to where we want to be. Some may be at the beginning of their journey, still in discovery of who we are, while others have found their passions and are living their dreams and being a confident mother all at the same time. This is what I love about Vancouver’s Leading Moms events, connectivity.

It is important to learn from those ahead of us, those that have paved their path and can share knowledge on how they got there. On September 23, 2016 I am so excited to have the opportunity to connect, listen and learn from strong inspiring mothers during the Leading Moms event at the Vancity Theatre in downtown Vancouver.

Last year I had the opportunity to attend my first Leading Moms event and I was left encouraged, motivated and inspired. This event presented by Crisp Media (producer of Vancouvermom.ca) is something I have been looking forward to this year, take a peak at last year’s video as it recaps highlights and gives you the best idea of what Leading Mom’s is all about.

This year for the fifth annual Leading Moms event the theme is based around childhood and we will be hearing from some of the most talented and accomplished women in Vancouver, including:

  1. Miyoung Lee: Host and Producer at CBC News Vancouver
    “Multiple Webster nominee and RTNDA winner, Miyoung Lee rings in her fourteenth year with CBC as the host and producer of CBC Vancouver News at 11 p.m.” … continued.
  2. Tara Teng: TV Host, Miss World Canada 2012 and Human Rights Activist
    “Tara Teng is a TV host, Miss World Canada 2012, a human rights activist, and works with various organizations around the world to combat gender-based violence and human trafficking.” … continued
  3. Dr. Vanessa Lapointe: Registered Psychologist & Bestselling Author
    “A Huffington Post parenting blogger, author of the best-selling book Discipline without Damage: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up, founder of The Wishing Star Developmental Clinic, and a regularly invited media guest, contributor, and speaker, Dr. Vanessa is known for bringing a sense of nurturing understanding to all of her work.” …continued
  4. Erin Treloar: Founder, RAW Beauty Talks
    “Erin has interviewed over 200 women from across North America including Olympic gold-medalist, Jamie Anderson and Grammy award-winning artist, Colbie Caillat for RAW Beauty Talks, a special series that features women without make-up, Photoshop or filters.” … continued

plus a handful of other great speakers, all sharing their experiences and personal journeys through performance, video and intimate talks delivered straight from their hearts.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
