Proven award winning leader.
I love creating opportunities for people to fill their business, while being fulfilled. It’s important to me to facilitate a culture where people are inspired to realize the best versions of themselves, while making meaningful connections with others. I believe that when we operate from intentions of collaboration and community, and what we can give and not take, that reciprocity is a natural reaction of the universal. What we create will flow back to us.
I created my business from nothing, and continue to grow my influence and reach, through the proven strategies I’ve created. Are you interested in plugging into my system? I work with leaders who have all their mindset work in place and working for them, they have no fear standing in their way, and they are ready to move their business to the next level. If this is you, GO HERE to see my leadership training.
While there has been a lot of buzz about various strategies for building your online presence, which is important, we cannot forget the importance of offline strategies and building our presence in our local community. I have found that having both inbound and outbound marketing strategies in place, combined with a solid marketing funnel, has been the most effective approach for building my business. Ultimately, engagement must take place both online and offline. CNBN offers a wide reach online, with a presence on all the social networks.
So, out of my passion for connecting with people, and connecting people with others, I created Connect Now Business Network. I started with one group in Abbotsford in 2012, and now there are multiple groups each week in different locations throughout BC. It’s growing and expanding because people still love meeting face-to-face.
I work to inspire and encourage others, while being a catalyst for change in a better direction. Connect Now welcomes all business owners and offers opportunities for meeting other professionals and business owners through live meetups, and professional development events, and online business networking. Diversity is very important in our networking community (see our Diversity Statement). The purpose of the group is for making connections, exchanging referrals, and enriching the community. Visitors experience a warm and welcoming, yet well organized and professional environment. It’s a place where people can get build valuable connections, while learning and having fun! See more about my philosophy around connecting and collaborating, on which the group was founded, HERE.
I hope you will join me in this journey.

If you are thinking of working with me, then you want to know a little about me. So, below, I’m going to talk about myself a bit and let you know who I am and what I’ve been up to.
Vision: Use innovative strategies and systems to connect business owners and non-profit directors with the right contacts, tools and resources so that they can thrive in their organizations and find joy in their lives.
Mission: To be a motivator, an influencer, a leader, a speaker, an author, a voice for cutting edge innovation, a practitioner of excellence, a facilitator of best practices, and a catalyst for change, all while embracing opportunities and living with gratitude. To inspire others to plan, take action, measure, celebrate, rinse and repeat. To help others to build an effective online presence, build relationships, build branding, and ultimately build their business.
At my core, I am a catalyst and an entrepreneur. I enjoy helping others and my community, by providing one-on-one coaching, online learning resources, and networking events.
Marketing: I am always ahead of the curve and I use cutting edge, proven marketing strategies. I have a passion for helping business owners, one-one-one, to accelerate their learning curve and get started quickly, resulting in a competitive advantage and increased profits. I create systems that work!
Internet Marketing & Social Media: I’ve been online, using and studying Internet Marketing since its beginnings. Working with social media and internet marketing fits well with everything I do. I’ve enjoyed staying on the cutting edge of marketing technologies throughout the evolution of the internet. I’ve learned from many experts over the years. Social media was a natural and anticipated transition for me, and I’ve always loved it, because, as the famous communications theorist Marshall Mcluhan said: “The medium is the message” …and what social media is telling us is that people want to connect. My online experience is well documented through my many niche sites and blogs, starting primarily with CNBN and Story Academy.
Online Learning Facilitator: I have created the online learning hub called Connect Now Academy, which gives participants access to all of my cutting edge tools, resources and information. New products are added every month.
Founder and Master Networker: I have a passion for connecting people and enriching my community. With that in mind, I founded the largest — live and in person — business and event networking group in my region called the Connect Now Business Network. I have also developed systems and a training program for promoting, managing, and growing meetup groups. Connect Now Network is the place to get connected! It’s the place to get inspired and be inspiring! The Connect Now Business Network is a new type of business networking, providing opportunities for meeting other professionals and business owners through business networking meetups and professional development events. You will experience a warm and welcoming, yet well organized and professional environment. The purpose of the group is to make connections, exchange referrals, and enrich the community.
Import/Export: I have a diploma in international trade and worked as an international trade consultant and trainer in government funded facilities, colleges, and corporate environments. My first online brand is Import Export Coach and has been one of the top import export business start-up training sites. I wrote and published a curriculum that has been selling there since 1999 – it’s a popular niche! Needless to say, I know how to create passive income.
Teaching & Creating: As a teacher, I am skilled in developing curriculum, which works well with writing books, creating information products and training programs. Education in that area includes achieving my Provincial Instructor’s Diploma and completing most of the upper level courses in the Adult Education Degree Program.
Communications: I have done a great desal of communications, leadership and personal development learning, through various self-paced and formal programs, including Toastmasters and Dale Carnegie. I have also completed two-thirds of a Masters in Communications, where I enjoyed further learning in the areas of interpersonal communications (examples: psychology, group dynamics, and personal development), organizational communications (examples: knowledge management, standard operating procedures, and organizational development), and marketing communications (branding messages and a professional level of content development). Tragedies have prevented me from completely finishing my degree or Masters.
