Elmira Women in Business

This year I began meeting with a small group of women who also are business owners here in Elmira, ON. We get together every other month, not to compete with each other, but to support and learn from each other. I value the experience and diversity within this networking group. In September 2014, Feathers, Rainbows & Roses was the showcase business. Check it out at Elmira Women in Business.

When did you realize the power of NO?

This interview is part of a CBC radio show about the Power of No.


I coached producer Rosie Fernandez to the realization that if you never say NO, you are not showing up honestly in your relationships. You also aren’t saying YES to the right things, time and energy for what you really want either. I invite you to listen to it.

You can also listen to the full show aired on March 5, 2014 called When did you realize the power of NO?
It’s a fun show and perhaps you will hear yourself in the stories that are told.

Hula Hoop Interview

Listen to a portion of the interview with Shirley Lynn Martin on CBC Radio, on the subject of the Hula Hoop and its effectiveness to empower people to set boundaries and live with greater self awareness.

“Thanks so much for agreeing to be a part of this show. I’ve heard wonderful feedback about your segment in particular—people are extremely impressed with your ingenuity and sensitivity. The show was made that much stronger because of your participation.” Rosie Fernandez, producer.
