Hey Everyone! I recently attended an amazing brunch at the Smith Restaurant (Inn at the Forks) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, On Saturday May 26th, 2018.
I saw on social media that Coal & Canary's Amanda Buhse was going to be speaking some very encouraging words about the business, just some inspiration from this gorgeous boss babe. We would be eating a delicious two-course brunch. Basically get some insight from her very personal experiences from ups to downs to quitting her full time job to take on this "hobby" as a full time job with her partner Tom Jansen.
This event was put on by the Ace Class that is a wonderful organization to support and empower women in the business. It was a great place to connect with the other women in the room by removing your barriers and being vulnerable, and just eating new people. For me it was more of meeting the people I followed on social media to finally put a name to the face. I got to meet so many awesome ladies and truly make a connection with one another, I mean we are all here for one reason to empower one another and encourage other women like ourselves.
Here are some of the pictures I took from the event! ENJOY!

I'm so thankful I was able to attend this brunch!
The take aways I took from this inspiring day was that Ace stands for Activate, Cultivate and Empower! I love it! Because when women support each other, incredible things happen!
As well as Amanda was so encouraging with her words that anyone like herself and Tom can do it! Just make what is invisible, visible, when it comes to your dreams! I mean she told us that they started in a closet with one huge metal pot from Canadian tire and some products from Michaels and went to work. And that by reaching out to the Grammys and Oscars that things can happen for you! So just believe in yourself and believe in the process!
My lovely mother watched my kids so I could enjoy an afternoon with other boss babes.
Super thankful to Ace Class for putting on such an inspiring event and of course for Amanda taking time out of her day to speak to us!
I truly felt really lucky!
