We at Happy Healthy Women are so thrilled to be bringing our fabulous networking sessions to Guelph! Amazing things happen when a group of like-minded women take the time to come together and connect and share their energy. It is in this type of setting that we lift each other up, and often times we learn something about ourselves and our businesses that may have been just hiding beneath the surface. It is a space where we experience personal revelations and our momentum begins to take off! We will take some time to introduce ourselves, our businesses, and our missions.
