A group of women from Yorkton have taken their business abilities to help and educate other women entrepreneurs to the ‘Nth’ level.
Their past seminars had been held in group sessions but with the present pandemic limiting public gatherings these ladies put their heads to together coming up with the idea to carry on, no matter the obstacles set before them, hence the ‘Everyday Heroes Webinar’ has been set in motion.
During the month of March, they will host a number of webinars through which their goals will include talking about their own businesses on a personal level, the importance of what they are doing as well as their willingness to help other entrepreneurs grow their endeavours.
When asked for their thoughts on the importance of the webinar it is easy to see the women have common ideas thus work well for the same successful outcome.
Tricia Klassen from The Medicine Shoppe, suggested, "The importance is to celebrate women in business and empower each other.”
She added, “When women come together the whole community benefits.”
Kellsey Popowich from Growth Media Strategy, noted, “This event has been a great way to network with presenters and attendees as well. There is so much competition out there but this group and this event are designed to help lift each other up and support each other.”
Dr. Lindsay Yaworsky of Prairie Smiles Dental Group definitely has the same goals in mind,
“The goal of the Everyday Heroes seminar series, as in previous years - the conference - is to empower women through knowledge, and to be able to share thoughts and ideas with each other. We want to celebrate women and grow strong communities and businesses within those communities. It is a fun, knowledge filled event that brings women together.”
The ladies will host a wide array of Power Point presentations, short videos and slides with question, and answer periods to follow.
Popowich suggests those interested, “Come armed with all your online marketing questions for your business! I’m here to help.”
Asked what they felt makes women talking to women about business so important, they saw it as important to share experiences.
“Women, and women entrepreneurs are an important part of our communities," Yaworsky explained. "Women in business often have a lot of commonalities, and sharing our personal experiences and knowledge can help all of us to grow and to learn. We can support each other in our businesses and in our lives, which, I believe, is such a great aspect of this group.”
How helpful might it be, from your experience?
“It is extremely helpful to be part of a like-minded group of women entrepreneurs. We can share ideas, learn from each other, and have a positive growth experience in our lives. Everyday Heroes brings together women from many different backgrounds and we can all share and support not only each other, but women in our community as well. We all have different knowledge bases to draw from - which makes the group a diverse wealth of information.”
Klassen suggests, “women often face unique challenges in business so it is great to be able to share and discuss ideas with other women in business. The conference is targeted towards both women in business as well as any women in the community looking to be motivated and encouraged by others to live their best life. The conference is also intended to educate women on some of the great resources our city has to offer.”
What do these women hope to pass on to their audience you might ask?
“I hope to pass on a message of self-care for your leg health to help prevent many leg health issues in the future," said Klassen. "This may be new information for some and a good reminder for others that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” I also hope to pass on the benefits of having a personal pharmacist that treats you as an individual and considers your whole health, not just your pills.”
Yaworsky stated, “I am a dentist and people’s oral health is my job. I love helping people achieve their best smile, and educating them on why the mouth is so important to overall health. I will be spending time on dental care - both what people should focus on at home and why it's important to have regular dental hygiene visits and dental exams. The mouth is the gateway to the body and routine dental check-ups can catch systemic problems early.
"In addition to that, I will be focusing on some common aesthetic concerns in dentistry - like how to achieve a brighter smile, how a missing tooth can be replaced, and some other aspects of smile design which is fun and interesting for me to share with the audience.”
“I hope to help the audience breakthrough any barrier they have holding them back in their online marketing goals,” added Popowich.
