Growing brave in business is not always easy, especially when you’re going it on your own. Although being in business for yourself often sounds awesome, being in business ‘by yourself’ can be lonely, confusing, and exhausting. 


A few things we’ve learned over and over again is the value of a community and the value of being vulnerable within that community Creating a trusted alliance of supporters can feel intimidating and almost impossible for many, but it definitely is not! We invite you to join us, along with a room full of other dedicated entrepreneurs, for a day of connection, inspiration, learning, and confidence building. 


Amélie Chanda and Andrea Husted will lead you through digging deep and recognizing how to evolve with your business. In addition to guided conversations, we will also explore the concepts of leaning ‘in’ and leaning ‘on’ each other. You will hear truths from three inspiring local Entrepreneurs (stay tuned) as they invite you inside their personal growth experience with their businesses as they’ve navigated the changes that are ever-present in running a thriving business.


You will definitely laugh, you may even cry, and you’ll walk away with inspiration and confidence to be true to yourself and your intuitive voice, all while having the courage to dream big and verbalize it. Because when you put those words and vibes out into the world that’s where the magic can happen!


Together, we will discover tools and daily habits that have helped entrepreneurs grow brave while continuously serving their clients and community. 


This ‘Growing Brave’ event will include a delicious lunch, light refreshments in between, networking with a community of like-minded business professionals, and will conclude with a wine tasting presented by Blueberry Hill Estates. Arrive early to mingle and network and stay late for an organic networking experience.

Confident Mindset Coaching Workshop

Confidence is defined as a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.  In other words it’s all about how much you believe that you are competent and capable and that your actions will have positive results.


We all know someone who seems to exude confidence.  We see it in the way they present themselves to the world, but did you know that confidence is not something we were born with?  No, confidence is a mindset that can be learned.


Confidence can help overcome challenges whether personal or professional.


Don’t let a lack of confidence stop you from taking risks or grabbing opportunities in life.


Join me for this coaching workshop to learn the skills you need to change your mindset and build your confidence.  I want to give you the tools to build your own self confidence so you can begin to open the doors to new possibilities.

Grateful Living

What if you could take ownership of your happiness?

During this 2 hour workshop, we will explore gratitude through a combination of stillness and movement with yoga, guided meditation and other practices. You will learn and experiment with various tools to cultivate well-being and as well as how to create space in your life to integrate a gratitude based practice.

Fueling The Entrepreneur

Are you an Entrepreneur that is striving for excellence? Do you want to build your network and your audience, but feel lost on how to make this happen?

Do you want to feel inspired and empowered to create, feel and live the life you’ve dreamed of having as a successful entrepreneur?


Well, we’ve been there friends! We’ve saddled up for the long journey to successful entrepreneurship and although it’s a twisted and tangled road at times, standing firm in intention and vision is totally worth it! It’s worth the hard days, hard work and the soul searching, but the truth is that if you don’t define your intention or have a clear understanding of what you’re striving for then this process can end up being an exhausting, soul-sucking experience. We don’t want that to happen to you, and that’s why we decided to spend this day sharing our experience, hearts and tools we use to create the business we dreamed of,


In this day long workshop event, Amelie Chanda, Wellness Coach & Andrea Husted, Owner and Photographer at Splash Photography have partnered to share their biggest insights on running a Sole Proprietorship and how they’ve built strong businesses with solid brands that are focused on who they are personally, and professionally.


Our purpose is to help you identify your vision, and to evaluate your definition of success. We will provide you with the tools you need to create a solid personal brand and a social media marketing plan that is on-point to what your ideal clients will engage with. Our intention is to up-level your confidence by asking powerful questions, and providing you with solutions to roadblocks, and tangible tools to help grow & market your business.


Are you ready for change? Are you ready to show the world that you are dynamic and talented, and that nothing will keep you from achieving YOUR definition of success? This workshop is about changing your business to help you create a life that you love. You will walk away from this day with real work completed that will help mold the actions in the coming days, weeks, and months concerning not only your business, but your self-care and awareness.
