A Celebration of Women™ – Messengers of Peace

Dorothy Mazeau is a longtime expert on what she calls “Golden Girls Living.” She’s excited to announce the launch of GOLDEN GIRLS CANADA, a new website that will connect older women wishing to share their homes with other women looking for housing for mutual benefit. Mazeau says “Golden Girls Living” can address real problems facing older people in housing – and she shares solutions about modern day “Golden Girls” – older people finding happiness and friendship through shared housing.

Professionally, Dorothy Mazeau is a realtor, with a long career as an architect before that. She’s spent a lifetime thinking about where people live, and how they live there. These days, though, she is most often described as a Seniors Advocate – and not just because she worked to get advanced certification as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES). As a result of both her personal and professional history, Dorothy understands the sensitive needs of the fast growing demographic of aging people who want to continue to enjoy quality of life in their own homes without feeling as though they will become a burden to their family or friends. She’s seen the barriers that can stand in their way and believes that GOLDEN GIRLS CANADA is the answer.

She has advocated for shared housing for a long time – and for her, it’s not just a business pitch…She has lived it. In fact, Mazeau has shared a home with friends for over two decades. She says she wouldn’t have it any other way, and now she is passionate about sharing the benefits. She was recently featured on the syndicated What She Said Radio show discussing this exciting concept, and participated in the March 8 International Women’s Day event at the Best Western Hotel in Orangeville.

Mazeau said she is thrilled to be participating in A Celebration of Women’s World Peace Day event on September 16th and is very much looking forward to it. “I am very excited! Whenever I talk about the Golden Girls concept I get an amazing response,” she says. “It always sparks a conversation and I hear stories of older women, in particular, living on their own or with their kids, who are so ready for something like this!”

As well as the website, Mazeau offers full day workshops on “How to Start a GOLDEN GIRLS Home”.

Participants will learn:

What is Golden Girls living all about?

The benefits of Golden Girl living

How do you like to live?

Attracting the right housemate(s)

What to do when someone responds

Guidelines for happy households

HUGE SHOUT OUT to this award winning esteemed Speaker, Dana Pharant for joining our Sponsor Speaking Team!

Dana is a #1 best-selling author of Beyond Fear, and a 2-time award-winning speaker. Dana’s commitment to living life in command of her feminine power and helping others connect with their Inner Dominatrix has made her a sought-after speaker and coach.

Becoming a badass in life and business requires you to stand in your power and be super comfy with being unique! Dana Pharant knows ALL about standing out and being unique. Her personal brand of the Inner Dominatrix pushes people out of their comfort zone, challenges their preconceived notions and has them stepping into a fierce determination to rock their Bold, Sexy Fun-Filled Lives!

My journey into the world of Kink(BDSM) provided the most unconventional and profound healing and inspired me to become a Dominatrix – it is nothing like you might think and in fact, that training was essential in my business and the foundation of my work today. Today I use the Inner Dominatrix as an archetype to inspire women to stand in their power, not out of force but from that place of deep knowing that they are unstoppable. She teaches how to blend the masculine and feminine energy so that you can take inspired action and get out of your own way. This naturally leads to you making way more money with way more ease.

When you know what you should be doing, are constantly told how brilliant you are and yet somehow you can’t take consistent action it is time for some Inner Dominatrix to release the self-judgement, get you powerfully re-connected to your intuition and standing with bulletproof confidence.

“There are some things you live with for so long that you fail to even consider they might be a problem. There are things that, until they are removed, you would have sworn did not affect you.

For me, it was sexual trauma. Intellectually, I had come to terms with it yet still it festered in my body. At least it did prior to my stepping into the world of Kink….”

HUGE SHOUT OUT to this Shareena Yusuff for joining our Esteemed Speakers!

I came to Canadian when I was 3 years old from Guyana, which is a country in South American. I am a Muslim girl who has been told her whole life “… girl need to cook, clean, don’t talk back.”

I have learned to deal with rape, miscarriage, anxiety, overwhelming feelings of being lost, sad and alone. I have always put everyone’s feelings before my mine. I am also a single Mom with a son who is now 24 years old.

I want to be a Voice for all Women & Girls with the message that they all need to speak their truth and never hold back. I want share and show that you can be stronger and find your “Woman Power” within you, through sharing my experiences in life.

“Take my hand and let’s start to get your life back.”

What does it mean to have Human Dignity?

Dignity is the quality of being honourable, noble, excellent and worthy. Therefore, dignity is a sense of pride in oneself that as each human being has within them the above qualities. This conscious sense allows them feel that they deserve respect and honour from other human beings, and guides them to give the same to all.

Dignity holds a value for all people, as we are all born as human beings.

Dignity holds respect for a person for merely being human: everyone is born with this potential. If someone has human dignity, it means they feel worthy and command respect; those with dignity carries herself well. A person’s self-respect regardless of any difference or, as one person I knew receiving care put it more briefly,’Being treated like I was somebody‘.

Among the most important human needs is the desire for respect and dignity. That need doesn’t change when a person becomes ill or disabled. There are many things you can do to make sure the person in your care receives the respect and dignity that is every person’s basic human right.

Shareena offers the following suggestions to living a life with Human Dignity:

1. Speak up and state your own values clearly. Live by your morals and ideals.
2. Have time for others.
3. Be yourself.
4. Have fun and relax.
5. Be honest without being rude.
6. Give people their space.
7. Be someone prepared to give second chances.
8. Have trust and faith.

A Celebration of Women™ – EXHIBITING SPONSORS

HUGE SHOUT OUT to this wonderful Exhibiting Sponsor, Cheryl Bewley.

Thirty-One has made me a stronger, more confident and braver woman than I already thought I was.

In 2015 many events took place in my life. Many influences got me to make the changes to be Happy!

HappyLives4All is now my mission in life, while being TOTEally happy myself.

A Pilgrimage to Haifa in March 2015 made me see my life differently than I had been living it and changes to a happy life started not long after.

My family realized, within 2 months of this pilgrimage, the unhappiness I was living with my husband of almost 25 years and changes had to be made. My Aunt Bette passing that summer and then hearing her words to live by at her memorial ‘never miss an opportunity to love your life’ became my message to start living my life by. The next day I met a wonderful family that needed me as much as I needed them after I took the big step to leave my broken home. The next 6 months of my life were unforgettable and rewarding.

One woman and 3 little girls changed my life forever and will always be a large part of who I am.

After that 6 months I moved onto a life of independence and realization that I had never lived in my own and many changes and struggles soon began. 3 years later I am happy, in life and love, and almost past the life that I left behind. I will never regret the step I chose to take and where it has led me.

When injury and illness entered my life 13 years ago, I realized 10 years later, that the road to recovery became much easier when I found happy in my life. Each struggle and tear along the was has been worth it.

Never miss an opportunity to love and live your life!

HUGE SHOUT OUT to Lisa McLean for joining our Exhibiting Sponsor Team!

Brooks Essential Oils is an all natural oil company, looking to bring you the best natural and organic product.

BEOils, an all natural oil company. Looking to bring men and women the best oils, with no additives.

Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with tremendous healing properties. Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy, which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health.

For over 5,000 years, many different cultures have used these healing plant oils for a variety of health conditions. They are often used for relaxation, beauty care, home cleaning and most often used as natural medicine.

Essential oils are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of a plant or tree, and just one drop can have powerful health benefits. They are typically created through the process of distillation, which separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming.

Essential oils are composed of very small molecules that can penetrate your cells, and some compounds in essential oils can even cross the blood-brain barrier. They differ from fatty oils (like those in vegetables or nuts) that come from large molecules because they cannot penetrate your cells, so they are not therapeutic in the same manner.

HUGE SHOUT OUT to this esteemed Exhibiting Sponsor, Ianina Terner!

My name is Ianina Terner. I am a retired teacher who fell in love with beading after I retired.

I always loved beads and beautiful things in life. Creating jewellery allows me to share my passion with others. Each piece is handcrafted and handmade with a great attention given to natural materials gathered from all over the world.

My designs feature a diverse range of media, including glass, metal, wood, crystals, pearls, lava beads, etc.

Above all I am continuously trying to improve my skills by enrolling in different courses specialized in jewellery making as well as those which address the business aspect.

I am also always searching for different bead stores and trade shows for interesting beads that speak to me, saying “…buy me, buy me”.

Each piece is unique and made with love!

I love this new adventure in my life ! It has taken me to a whole new world ! It has opened new horizons and unlimited possibilities. I am so proud of what I have achieved and I proved many people wrong. I have learned that you can do everything or almost everything; when you put your mind to it! There are challenges for sure ,but through hard work and determination you can succeed!

Trust yourself and success is around the corner!

HUGE SHOUT OUT to Dahlia DeSouza – Founder of Uptothetime Inc. for joining our Exhibition Sponsor Team!

I have traveled the world, teaching every step of the way while immersing myself in different cultures and dedicating my time to educating children. Through that journey, I became very aware of the needs of my students and knew I had to do something. My drive to give back to the community was realized with the creation of Uptothetime. My commitment is to provide financial and hands-on support to educational charities through the growth and prosperity of Uptothetime Inc.

The combination of high-quality, fashion-forward products and strong brand values coupled with the opportunity to work with you to make an even greater impact, is heartwarming.

Together we can make this world better. Will you join me?

About Uptothetime

“Up to the time” is a Jamaican expression meaning; Being on top of your game. You are a driven and motivated person making movements and being the best you can be. You are a leader and willing to lead by example.

If you are going to give; Give in Style. We are a lifestyle brand of chic and fashionable accessories for your everyday life.

“Uptothetime” is where Style meets Charity.

Featuring stylish and functional laptop bags, luxurious leather handbags and cardholders, “myDream” timepieces in an array of colors, and jewelry in silver, yellow and rose gold! These products, either as a personal purchase, a lovely gift or for fundraising purposes not only are glamorous accessories; Ten Percent (10%) of every product sold is used to enrich the lives of underprivileged children through education. Uptothetime sponsors: Sashbear, Global Education and Development Fund (GEDF) and Helping Hands Jamaica.

Not only is Uptothetime an empowering brand – fun colors and styles to express yourself in ‘wow’ – you are given a chance with your purchases to empower the lives of our children through education. You cannot beat that, can you?

The inspiration for Uptothetime began when I was a young student. I saw many inequalities in life and in education. Many of my classmates did not have the same foundation of a loving and supportive home or the tools to better further their education. I went on to high school and University and I knew that many of my old classmates were not successful in finishing or continuing their education. I chose to make a difference and became a teacher.

As an educator, I have the resources to help children. Uptothetime is designed to have an even larger impact and help more children on a global scale.

We are all on the journey to be the best versions of ourselves, and if we can inspire others along the way the rewards are endless!
