Heinz and I were so happy to welcome fellow entrepreneurs, friends and supporters to our For Love And Business Launch Party! We are so grateful for the successful turnout, everyone who donated door prizes and sent well wishes.
We saw lots of our women entrepreneur community members, some with their hubbies! (Heinz says “thanks for the reinforcement,” Andy, Marc and Jason!)
Lots of Prizes!
Special thanks to Chantal Lajoie, the Caisse Populaire de la Vallée General Manager, who has been a champion of entrepreneurship in our area. And our business banker for over 20 years! She brought a lovely cheese board and BBQ set. These were won respectively by Andy Buist of Kaleidoscope Axiom and Lorraine Régnier of Modere.
Andy’s lovely spouse and business partner Sue Buist donated a basket of hand-crafted bath products. This prize went to Wanda Bender of Dragonfly With Me.
Cedarwood Services owner Alyson Graham‘s at-a-glance planner and pen set was awarded to Lorraine Driscoll of Building Better Brains. Alyson herself won a pashmina, courtesy of For Love and Business. Other For Love And Business prizes went to Chantal Lajoie (bath salts) and Corrina Paulenco of Significo Print |Sign | Design (candle).

On a personal note
(He’s going to hate this because he says it’s his “job” but…) I wish to publicly express my love and deep appreciation to Heinz, my soulmate of 33 years and business partner for 20 years now. As a former chef, he is a master in putting together gorgeous food platters and buffet displays.
Aside from also being my Accounting Rockstar (that’s his title in our company!), he’s also a gifted techie who can always figure out my bluetooth connections when I am having a meltdown because the music won’t work…
Typically have “freak out” moments just before any event. And Heinz just calmly goes about getting things ready. He’s always there for me. He’s my rock. I love you Heinz.
And thank you all again for being there!
Yours for love and business,
