What I figured out was, work hard at something, give it your best and get the payback, the big reward. Many careers I have had during my life, and the one that keeps me totally excited and enthused about is sales. I haven’t really had any formal training in sales, however I’ve been told I am very convincing. Making the deal is like a drug. It’s euphoric and you want more.
My family is very important to me and I love them all. We are now over 35 and counting. My mother is the reason I moved back to Edmonton 10 years ago, being away was getting to me, as it had been 20 years away living in four Provinces, only to get home for special occasions.
Friends are people you pick, because they add to your life and you add to theirs. I am one lucky person, as I have the best friends of any one I know.
Giving to your community is essential to being successful. I made a promise to myself I would give as much as I could to whatever charity or person in need I chose at the time. I don’t make a lot of money but I live an awesome life and consider myself a successful human being. I always have enough of what I need and get through tough times. I land on my feet. Womanition Magazine is so very special to me. I see women grow in their personal life as well as their business. The magazine make things happen for the women who take advantage of the gift they have received. It’s a joy to me when a featured lady gets it.
Womanition is where I should be. I love what I do and I’m excited everyday.

“Womanition has allowed me to become part of something. I didn’t grow up here and although I have been here for a while when it comes groups, friends, women and business I just had a select few great friends. Womanition has allowed me to meet so many amazing women. Up until Womanition I truly believed (through past experiences) that women didn’t help women in business. I believed that it was a cut throat market. Womanition has changed that belief for me. It is truly amazing to see a group of business women who truly want to help other women entrepreneurs. It honestly blew me away and sometime still, I take a step back, give my head a shake and ask myself is this really happening? I am so grateful for all the amazing friends and mentors that have come into my life since I started with the group. Womanition also allowed me to build confidence and tell my story. It allowed me to open up and be vulnerable. So thank you. I know it has been awhile since I have been to a lunch but things have been super busy as our Seminar is next week and I have had a bit of a rough winter with minor health issues. So I will be back lol! I look forward to the future and what it has in store. Thanks again for creating such an amazing group and for allowing me to be a part of it!” -Colette Benoit
