Certified and Shortlisted

January 16, 2013 10 Comments TAGS: Career

A few nice things to share today. Kind of like a WordY Wednesday…

I have been coaching, mentoring and consulting since the age of 24. That’s quite a while. But I decided last year to heavily invest my time and energy into actually getting certified. After a 10-week course, class every Monday night, and a weekly exam every Tuesday, a lot of exhaustion, I got word yesterday… I PASSED!!

I’m thrilled to announce that I am now a Certified Life and Business Coach. My certificate is in the mail. 😉

I also got other nice news yesterday. I am honored and proud to announce that Women On The Fence® has made it to the final shortlist of the 2012 Canadian Weblog Awards in two categories- Business & Career and Family & Parenting. It is such a wonderful feeling to be recognized by your Canadian contemporaries. We haven’t won (winners announced end of January), but just to be included amongst such blogging talent, is a true honor. And I am proud to share it with YOU – you are the women who make this community what it is. You.

Here is the full list of shortlisted nominees if you wish to discover some of Canada’s best blogs…

Happy Hump Day ladies.

    3. Thank you all for your nice wishes. I just know that nothing comes easy, and we must all fight for what we want. But the rewards of working hard are great. I hope you all continue to work hard for what you want. January is a great place to start hustling. 😉
