After graduating from university I started working in “real” jobs; that’s what grown-ups do. One day, after 20+ years of working in the corporate world, I couldn’t imagine another day of office routine being fulfilling anymore. I took time away from an office setting to allow myself to learn what I love. It turns out that I love to help people; especially in finding their confidence after life transitions.
This time off has been a major transition for me and is not the first time that I have gone through transition. I moved by myself from Ontario to Alberta in my late 20s leaving behind family, friends and work, and found my husband, new friends and new work. I have had many jobs changes; most that I initiated and some that I did not. I have lost important family members and had to learn how life feels so differently after that. Every time a large change has occurred in my life I have always had the ability to get through the bad days by putting on my “confident style” and that made me feel my own inner strength. I understand that there are so many transitions in life that can make us lose touch with our confidence and it can be a struggle to find that equilibrium again. I want to help you through your life transition back to confidence.

“How has Womanition benefited me? Let me count the ways I have been a part of the Womanition magazine for 10 years. The first year I was in the magazine, I did nothing, attended no meetings and questioned the benefit of it. I decided to try a 2nd year and commit to attending Dorothy's events. Wow! What a difference. Dorothy says....'show up and magic happens' and it's true. People like to do business with people they know like and trust. Through the years, I learned so much about the value of networking with other business women and it's all from Womanition groups. I have done business and I'm currently doing business with many of the Womanition women. Many of the Womanition women shop and consign at my store on a regular basis. I appreciate that so much. I was never comfortable speaking in front of people. Through attending meetings, I've become much more comfortable speaking in front of others. Events like the Biz Brigades and Aces Workshops have inspired and motivated me to be a better business woman. Dorothy Briggs inspires me everytime I see her. She never stops, she's always growing and trying new business ventures, I really admire that. In fact, she inspired me to start a charitable organization this year. I've tried other networking groups Womanition is my favorite. The women involved are very supportive of each other and Dorothy runs a very efficient meeting.” -Glenda Polak
