12 Days of Christmas - Day 6 - Shop Small - Services

I've got a gal or guy for everything! I love having places and people that I go back to over and over again for the services I love. Now more than ever I am keeping my bubble small and staying very loyal to the service providers I love. Giving the gift of experiences and services is one of my favourite things to do. I often feel like I have too much 'stuff' and getting an experience or an opportunity to work with a service provider is something I truly value. Here are my fav's!


Brows By Ciara

I can't say enough about how much I would like to receive this as a gift! I have micro-bladed eyebrows but they require a touch up every year or two (depending on your skin and hair colour). I would give Darren MAJOR brownie points for buying me a gift I would buy myself! Brows By Ciara is the best in the business. She is an instructor for new artists and she has many years under her belt so she is who I trusted to essentially tattoo my face! I am so proud of the business she has built! Contact Ciara today to buy a gift card for your loved ones who have new brows on their list!

Grato Coaching

Do you have an entrepreneur in your life that could use the gift of coaching? Who uses a coach and why?

The simple answer is people who want more! They are people who want growth in their professional and personal lives (or both), and they want to feel supported in their quest to achieve it. Anyone, in any walk of life, for almost any reason can hire a coach. The common goal is the desire to improve upon their life.

Professional Reasons...

Businesses have begun to hire coaches to give their employees access to the skills that will help excel their professional lives and careers. There are also many business owners, CEO’s and professionals that are using coaching as a tool to help them identify, set, and stay accountable to their goals reaching greater success in their professional lives.


Personal Reasons...

We all have goals in our personal lives. Whether it’s to find love, or improve existing relationships, to parent in a calmer way, finding your life purpose, being more confident, or simply finding happiness. We all have areas that feel blurry while we are in the middle of them. Coaching allows a safe space to explore the ways to improve these areas without judgement and find action-based solutions to achieve great results!

Contact Heather at Grato Coaching to find out how you can give the gift of coaching to a loved one or yourself! Grato Coaching has changed how I do business and I can't recommend Heather enough!
