I am so thrilled to introduce you to a lovely BC mom who many of you would have seen on CBC's hit television show "Dragon's Den" where she shook hands with two of Canada's leading business minds - Jim Treliving and Kevin O'Leary! If you haven't her segment, you must watch it here.
Elaine Tan Comeau, wife and mom of three young children, went from elementary school teacher to becoming the CEO and Founder of Easy Daysies Ltd.. Her multiple award-winning magnetic schedules for kids are now in about 2000 retail locations across Canada and the USA, including almost 700 Barnes & Nobles, 200 Staples Canada, and many independent toy and educational toy stores. When I invited her to speak at one of our meetings, she was so honoured and excited that she is willing to bend her usual carpooling arrangements from driving six kids to school in the morning so that she can make the time for us to share her success tips, and how she is balancing motherhood with running a business that distributes her products to about 2000 stores -- I believe the honour is ours! Elaine has been featured in the Financial Post, Maclean's Magazine, Canadian Business Magazine, and Huffington Post to name a few, all wanting to know her story about being a mom entrepreneur too. So mark your calendars and RSVP before seats fill up because this is going to be an inspiring and educational opportunity that you are not going to want to miss!
We could all use a breather to be among moms like you during this busy season anyway. So please come out and join us for coffee and/or breakfast, bring your cards, brochures, etc.. Let's have another fun morning with new and familiar faces, and leave feeling empowered like we always do!
Hope to see you there!
