FOR SASKATCHEWAN WOMEN | VOL. 3 ISSUE 3, MARCH 2014


For Tina Hnatiuk, a Regina-based entrepreneur exploring the intersection of yoga and life coaching, the services she provides are less about paying bills than about helping enrich the lives of those around her. “People constantly inspire me,” she says. “In my line of work, I ask people to do something different than they normally would. It’s wonderful to witness them realize just how much they are capable of.” Hnatiuk carries herself with a refreshing blend of kindness, compassion and confidence. The long list of testimonials on her website (www.tinahnatiuk.com) reflect her unwavering dedication to her clients. “I may work long hours sometimes but I am filled with joy. It’s not work – it’s passion,” she explains. “Service is about people and I love being of service to others.” Born and raised in Saskatoon, Hnatiuk left for Alberta after high school and remained there until 2010, when she returned to Saskatchewan and began building a life and business alongside her husband and best friend, Dave. “I have been welcomed so warmly in Regina,” she expresses. “I can honestly say that [moving here] was the best decision I ever made.” Though she may have returned home in the name of love, Saskatchewan always held a special place in Hnatiuk’s heart. “People are so loyal here,” she says. “They act with a lot of integrity and they say what they mean. People see me for me – a human being – and not for my job. This allows for the creation of genuine relationships and human connections.” Hnatiuk is one of many who have made the decision to leave Alberta and British Columbia to enjoy Saskatchewan’s thriving economy and wealth of opportunity. “A lot of people that left are coming back,” she states. “There is a lot of appeal here and people are realizing [Saskatchewan] is where they want to raise a family.” Hnatiuk’s move to the Calgary area was fueled by a desire to pursue graphic design at the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD). Shortly after commencing the program however, she recognized it was not where her true passion lay. She withdrew and instead elected to study traditional Chinese medicine at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This too, proved to be underwhelming, as she recognized her career options would be limited to clinical work-

Improve Your Own “Investment Environment”

As a citizen of the world, you may have a keen interest in protecting your physical surroundings. That’s certainly a concern for many especially as we near Earth Day on April 22. As someone trying to reach long-term financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement, you’re probably also interested in improving your own investment environment. So here are a few suggestions: Respond to environmental factors - Over the past few years, we’ve had a favorable investment climate, marked by low inflation, low interest rates and generally strong corporate profits. And investors who have taken advantage of this positive environment have, for the most part, been rewarded. But things can change, so it’s always a good idea to understand the current investment environment, as it may affect your investment choices. For example, if it seems likely that long-term interest rates are going to rise significantly, you might need to review your long-term bond holdings, as their price would be negatively affected by a rise in rates. Nurture your investments - One area of environmentalism involves planting seeds or saplings and nurturing them to maturity. You can do the same thing with investments — and a good way to nurture them is to give them time to grow in all investment climates. But how long should you hold these investments? You might heed the advice of Warren Buffett, one of the world’s most famous investors, who says this about his investment company: “Our favorite holding period is forever.” It takes patience to follow the buy-and-hold strategy favored by Mr. Buffett — and it also requires the discipline necessary to keep investing through the inevitable downturns you will encounter. But over the long term, your perseverance may well be rewarded. Avoid “toxic” investment strategies - Unfortunately, many human activities are bad for the environment. Similarly, some investment strategies are “toxic” for your prospects of success. Consider the pursuit of “hot” stocks. They sound inviting, but, by the time you hear about them, they may have lost their sizzle — and in any case, they might not be right for your needs. Here’s another “poisonous” investment strategy: trying to “time” the market. If you’re always jumping in and out of the market, looking for “low” points to buy and “high” points to sell, you’ll probably be wrong most of the time — because nobody can accurately predict highs and lows. Even more importantly, you may find yourself out of the market during the beginning of a rally, which is when the biggest gainsPMS tend5535 to occur. Diversify your “species” of investments - Drawing inspiration from Earth Day, the United Nations has designated 2011–2020 as the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity. And, just as preserving the diversification of species is important for life on Earth, the diversification of your investment portfolio is essential for its health. By owning a variety of investments — stocks, bonds, securities, Guaranteed Income Certificates (GICs) and so on — you can help protect yourself from downturns that primarily affect just one asset class. (Keep in mind, though, that while diversification can reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings, it can’t guarantee profits or protect against loss.) Black Earth Day happens just once a year — but the lessons of environmentalism can help you, as an investor, for all the days and years ahead.

ing environments. She withdrew after completing her first year of study. “I have no room for regret,” says Hnatiuk, who frames her past pursuits as career building blocks rather than obstacles or failures. “I believe that life is a path – our path – and it is made up of what we choose to put in front of us.” According to Hnatiuk, it was clear early on to both she and her family members that her fearlessness and persistence would land her in a career that was, by definition, unconventional. “I like my own sandbox,” says Hnatiuk with a grin. “I don’t let myself get in my own way. I’ve never been ready to settle for anything that did not make me joyful.” That source of joy, it turned out, was waiting for her in the yoga studio. Hnatiuk’s love for yoga was ignited while working for internationally acclaimed retailer lululemon athletica (http://www.lululemon.com) over a decade ago. Today, she remains involved with the company and is a proud lululemon Ambassador, working closely with management and staff at the Regina store. Though famed for its iconic, yoga-inspired active wear, lululemon’s lasting success is intimately tied to its commitment to cultivating an uplifting, empowering culture for both employees and customers. “Back then, [lululemon] was a small franchise with a big manifesto. They have always emphasized personal development and discovering how you show up in life every day. As staff, we had access to free yoga four times a week and I took full advantage of this.” Immediately following her first yoga class, Hnatiuk was hooked. She soon began paying out of pocket to supplement her workplace yoga benefits, attending five to six sessions per week. “It was mind-blowing,” she explains. “I felt like I belonged. We all come from different bodies, different ages, but we were all doing the best we could and that is a courageous and vulnerable thing.” Hnatiuk was so moved by her positive yoga experiences that she decided to pursue teaching training at Calgary’s Gaiatri (http://www.gaiatri.com), a well-known teaching facility. She has been teaching ever since. “Every time I get in front of a roomful of students, it is an act of love,” she says. “We come together to be the best we can be.”

She defines her philosophy of yoga and self-care as deeply rooted in spirituality but made accessible through real-life, practical examples. In fact, practicality is a common word in Hnatiuk’s vocabulary, fundamental in her yoga and coaching services.

about the coaching process. “At the end of the day, I am an impartial party who is here to love you up and who genuinely wants you to have what you want.”

“Yoga is a practical tool for living,” she explains. “It’s a tool that has been around for thousands of years. When we learn to control how we think, we can control how we live our lives. By truly embodying your body, you inhabit your life more fully and this means you can give more fully.”

Packages are typically three to six months in duration and are made up of a series of regular phone conversations between coach and client. This allows sufficient time to gain momentum and begin seeing results – that is, shifts in behavior and ways of thinking. Telephone calls are preferred to face-toface meetings, as the latter can evoke certain expectations and anxieties that may prove to be counter-productive.

Those interested in practicing alongside Hnatiuk can find

She maintains a schedule on her website (www.tinahnatiuk.com) and is a regular instructor at both Bodhi Tree Yoga (www.bodhitreeyoga. com) and Full Life Yoga (www.fulllifeyoga.com).

Hnatiuk elaborates. “When all you have is your voice, you are less likely to be looking for approval. Through my training and experience, I know how to listen really deeply for your true intention.”

It was Hnatiuk’s long-standing interest in holistic health and wellbeing that prompted her to pursue a life coaching certificate. Doing so opened new doors of opportunity and ways to support those in and outside the Regina area. Furthermore, her coursework served to further enhance her already reputable service-driven skill set. In 2007, she earned her coaching certificate from Erickson College, an industry leader in business and life coach certification.

While Hnatiuk offers yoga instruction and coaching separately, she also enjoys interlacing the two in various workshops

Hnatiuk – who herself works with a coach based out of Vancouver, BC – appreciates the mobility of her coaching business. She has worked with clients from across the country and relishes the opportunity to reach new people in new places. She describes her target market as creative individuals with big dreams and big energy. “It has always been my goal to help the average person – and particularly the average woman – create more meaning in their life.” All prospective clients receive a free 30-minute “Discovery Session” to establish initial rapport and determine if the coach-client relationship is a suitable fit. Hnatiuk works with clients to ascertain their goals and objectives, then, offers actionable steps to bridge the gap between hope and reality. “I help keep my clients become accountable by providing them with tools to help them get of their own way,” she says

“Every time I get in front of a roomful of students, it is an act of love, we come together to be the best we can be.” and group sessions. She believes important and profound truths reveal themselves when people unite with a shared and vested interest in taking an inquiry-based approach to who they are and how they live their lives. “Magic happens when groups come together,” she explains. One such workshop is ‘Ancestors of the Future,’ where attendees learn to incorporate Vinyasa yoga into their daily life as a way to create a “living legacy.” “This is a workshop about beginnings, endings and how to keep it all moving in between,” says Hnatiuk, who works hard to embolden participants’ sense of self and sense of purpose. Whether she is on a yoga mat or a telephone, with a single client or in a group setting, Hnatiuk’s message is unchanged. “I want all of my clients to know that they are amazing exactly as they are. They are enough. Nothing needs to be changed. We are all beings full of pure potential and achieving that potential requires us to tap into our courage and strength.”

FOR SASKATCHEWAN WOMEN | VOL. 3 ISSUE 3, March 2014

Hnatiuk has certainly maximized her own pure potential through her venture into entrepreneurship. The process itself has not been without challenges, but as a self-motivated and driven female, she remains committed to building her business and assisting others to following their dreams and aspirations, too. She explains that both her vision and purpose flow from a well of inner strength and a willingness to take risks. “Even when I’m scared, when my gut tells me to keep moving, I move,” she says. “I don’t always know the right questions to ask but I know how important it is to make the right choices. If something doesn’t work, I try to determine what did or didn’t happen and how I can work to make it better.” While Hnatiuk enjoys the freedoms associated with business ownership, what she values most are the endless opportunities for self-discovery and learning. “How much you learn about yourself really is one of the greatest gifts of entrepreneurship,” she says. “You learn about your strengths, where you have room to grow and what you have no business doing. As I learn more about myself, my potential


– in and out of business – is constantly growing, too. There is nothing better than living life on your own terms!”

real estate seminar

When asked what kind of advice she would share with those interested in taking the leap into entrepreneurship, Hnatiuk’s advice was profound yet simple: “Start before you’re ready and keep going. Always remember why you’re doing what you’re doing and give yourself full permission to fail. Failure is an opportunity; it is not something negative. Don’t be afraid to give your message to the world.” Hnatiuk will be hosting two events in the coming months: an ‘Ancestors of the Future’ retreat at Moose Jaw’s The Yoga Loft (www.theyogaloftmj.com; May 4) and a joint yoga and coaching retreat at Moose Jaw’s Wood Acres Bed and Breakfast (June 6 – 8).

Successful Communication Between You and Your Hair Stylist By Joy Amistad from Visions Salon and Spa, Saskatoon The most important part of any hair appointment is the consultation. This chat between you and your hairstylist will connect the dots from where your hair is now to what the end result will look like. It is very important to take this time to really make sure you voice out what you want. If you find it difficult to explain what you desire, bring in a picture for your stylist, as it will provide more clarity. During the consultation your hair stylist will use their expertise to advise what is feasible or not with your specific hair type/style. Here are some tips below to help aid a successful consultation. First off, your stylist should ask you questions such as: What do you like the best about your hair? What are your challenges? Now you and your stylist know what to keep, what to accentuate and what needs to change. Next, facial shape needs to be discussed. I don’t recommend spending too much time analyzing if you are heart or diamond shaped. You simply want to recognize what features you have that are strong and which are soft, then create balance.

Once the cut is established, color and texture are the next steps. Going back to the beginning of the consultation, if your challenge is inconsistent curl, perhaps you need a body perm to permanently set your curls to be the same size. If smooth hair is what you’re after, a relaxer is recommended. Color should be discussed in detail. Chocolate brown may be different to you than to your stylist, so be sure you are both 100% on the same page as to what your target color is. Ask your stylist what tones best compliment your skin and eyes, then discuss the depth and dimension that would be best for you. If you want to walk into a room and turn heads or prefer a soft and subtle image, let your stylist know. The more she/he can learn about you the better. Our job as stylists is to bring out the inner you for the rest of the world to see.

Take for example the bob. If you have a narrow jaw, you want to create fullness at the jaw line. If you have a full jaw you would want the hair to fall past the jaw line, drawing the eye away from the jaw. The short bob angled forwards has been the most requested hair cut for the past 4 years; this look is great for almost any profile. Depending on the length of the cut, the angled line creates strength to the cheekbone, jaw or chin. Another great tip to remember, ‘space creates lift’. Most of us have a higher and a lower eye. If you part your hair over your lower eye you will create balance. A small forehead would need space, so a heavy bang isn’t recommended, rather a wispy swept bang would be perfect. A high forehead looks best with bangs that fill this space in.

Joy Amistad is a passionate hairstylist who originated in Vancouver and has continued to develop her talent by further training not only in Vancouver, but as well as Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Miami and is now residing in Saskatoon. Her extended training has furthered her knowledge in precision cuts, hair colours and up styling. Hair is a fashion industry that is continually changing and growing; she truly values the importance of continually upgrading and enhancing her skills.

nail it By Sara Lindsay

Nail lacquer sales have dramatically increased recently in the beauty industry as creative nail lacquer colours and nail art have become incredibly popular among women of all ages. It’s a really fun way to accessorize but like any beauty products, you need to be cautious and aware of the ingredients. I’ve listed a few of the controversial ingredients to watch for as well as some brands that offer products free of all of these ingredients. Toluene - According the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety “Toluene is a moderate skin irritant that can cause dermatitis with prolonged contact. Inhalation of toluene vapour can affect the central nervous system causing slight drowsiness and headache at low levels and irritation of the nose, throat and respiratory tract at increased levels.”

Butter london - From the everyday woman to models of the catwalk, Butter London has developed a huge following. It’s quickly become a cult favourite of the nail industry and is famous for their high fashion, toxic chemical-free lacquers. Butter London is a backstage fixture at fashion week due to the vast collection, which includes everything from gorgeous nudes to unusual and striking colours. Another fun part of Butter London’s identity is their British inspired edgy lacquer names, such as “Come To Bed Red”, “The Full Monty” and “Shag”.

Formaldehyde - “Has been classified as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.” DBP - “The chemical dibutyl phthalate, or DBP, acts as a binder to improve the lasting power of nail lacquer. But it’s also been linked to cancer in lab animals.” HealTHy OPTiOns: Jin soon - Jin Soon Choi is one of the most influential names in the fashion industry. As one of the most sought-after nail artists by designers, editors, photographers and celebrities, Choi’s work graces fashion week runways all over the world, appears in ad campaigns such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Balenciaga and Dior, as well as the covers of Vogue, Vogue Italia, In Style and GQ. Jin Soon offers three luxury hand and foot spas in Manhattan as well as her own luxury line of lacquers.

how to choose the right style of denim by Riley lAW son style@rileylawson.com |w w w . r i l e y l a w s o n . c o m

Here are some great tips to consider before purchasing your next pair of jeans – they can really make a big difference!

Fading:

Pockets:

This is something that’s been around for a while and it can be extremely flattering when used properly. However, it can also add width and bulk if done incorrectly. subtle distressing concentrated on the apples of your cheeks adds dimension to a flat butt. Adversely, if you have an ample behind already you’ll want to avoid this style.

look for medium sized pockets – small ones make the bum look larger and big ones can flatten it. The pocket on your jeans should end above the seat crease (where your thighs meet your butt cheeks).

Fit: • If you are having issues with jeans fitting your thighs but always have a gap at the waist, get them tailored. it’s worth it to spend the money on a few simple changes that can give you the best jeans you’ll ever have. Darting at the waistband can also usually solve this issue. • Always be sure there is no sagging at the butt or around the knees as this wil misshape your figure and add unnecessary bulk.

REAL ESTATE 101 Kids Off To University? To Rent or To Buy? Are you dealing with university or college applications for your children? Are they looking at moving out? Something you may want to consider is purchasing an apartment, condo or a house for your children to live in. My cousin and I both attended the University of Saskatchewan and had apartments down the hall from each other. We would always mention to our parents that they should have just bought one, as we spent about $450/month for over 4 years, totalling $43,200! What are rental rates these days? A two-bedroom apartment is going to run you around $900 to $1500 per month. So, why not look at purchasing and instead pay a mortgage. A mortgage will be less than rent! And, if your child has a roommate who pays $500 or $600 – this could lessen your monthly financial commitment. Real estate usually appreciates over the two to four years that your child attends post secondary education. Subsequently, you could also have another child going to school in two years as well, so you may have this investment for 6-8 years!

“If you buy a house or three-bedroom apartment, you can make money off the rent coming in. Either would ensure you would have a positive cash flow, which can help off set tuition/books costs!” So, to put this in perspective, at $1200 per month for 4 years, potentially $57,600 could be spent on rent. Even a one-bedroom is about $900 per month. At 4 years that would total $43,200 spent on rent. This amount can be retained through a purchase.

then helps out with the pocket book when children leave home.

If you buy, you would require a down payment. And when you sell, you could probably get the same price or perhaps even more than what you paid for the place. If you buy a house or three-bedroom apartment, you can make money off the rent coming in. Either would ensure you would have a positive cash flow, which can help off set tuition/books costs!

Empty nesting can be a difficult time and it’s not supposed to be a financial strain, so be smart about where your children will live.

This is usually not a decision regretted; instead it is wise having the foresight to make a prudent investment decision, which

If you need assistance, it doesn’t matter which city your child is looking at moving to as we, (my colleagues and I) have access to market information to refer you in the right direction.

Smart Clients Just Like You Get Exactly What They Want

Form follows function, famous words for me to live by. You would not ever think of spending $500 dollars on ill-fitting clothing, then why would you spend a thousand times more on the wrong home? Custom homes are not altered stock plans from a builder’s catalogue or from a book of plans. By far the wisest money you are ever going to spend is on your authentic custom home. Today we are not talking about why you should pick a custom home, because I expect you already know the answer. The first thing you and I do together is discuss and document how your custom home fits you and your family. I call it ‘telling the story’ and it’s your story for you and your family. You and your family’s needs and wants for now, and going forth into the future, form the foundation of your new home. A carpenter says “measure twice cut once” and the same applies to your new custom designed home.

The Real Story After we got comfortable with each other the story flowed and we moulded and shaped the planning to the needs of the family. They are young professionals with one school age child and one toddler. Following is the final version agreed to by the family. Not chiseled in stone but guiding signposts to the finish line. Guiding Statement – Telling The Story We want a modern two-story walkout open floor plan home with about 800 SF per floor. Our house is not to look crowded to the fence lines like almost every other one. Lots of natural light and garden views are a must. The walkout has to be a future development designed in every aspect and ready to build as phase two. Mining For Details I listened to and recorded the details the family wanted their home to contain. They told me the kitchen is where the family congregates to hang out, work and dine in one central space. It has a spacious kitchen island to serve as the primary and secondary workspace, extra storage or the spot for many cooks to spread out. Banquette, technology and an integrated office complete their list for the kitchen. The kitchen is a space with many functions. Appliances include refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, wine cooler, steam and wall ovens. They love the hidden European appliance look. Casual Dining – Home for Entertainment Design open area main floor spaces to shrink and stretch to accommodate many entertaining needs. They want a home with fewer formal rooms and more casual living spaces for the whole family to enjoy. The living room and future great room have well-appointed flexible gathering places. Place value on entertainment. A fireplace focal point and entertainment wall is a must.


W

e have taken up the role of modernizing the California Modern, Cape Code, Craftsman, Saltbox, American Foursquare and Modern architectural styles, and promoting an appealing affordable living option for middle-class families. Rather than reproducing traditional homes, gjConstructs refigures the design to include modern amenities to address your demands for increased privacy and up to date technology. Simplicity, functionality and livability remain prevalent features of Gary’s updated designs.

Open, Connected Floor Plans We want comfortable open living spaces with several functions to meet the needs of all family members. Built-ins and entry points are designate activity zones in combination rooms and make the space feel open and inviting. Universal Design Elements Comfortable design and accessibility for people of all ages and abilities taken into account. Features such as extra grab bars, lever handles and variable task lighting are part of the package. Bedrooms Second Floor This is their home away from everything space. Falling just short of a luxury spa it includes: private washroom; separate tub and shower; sit down dressing; heated flooring and dressing room area. Budget allowing, add a fireplace and drink cooler. Rough in for a gas fireplace. Two more bedrooms round out the second floor. One bedroom doubles as the laundry and turns into a reading hobby room in the future. Two teenaged sized bedrooms go in the walkout in phase two. Dedicated Drop Zone With the family soon to have two school-aged children, it is important to have by-the-door storage. This makes it easy to catch clutter the moment it enters. An enclosed porch provides shelter from the elements and seasonal storage. An air lock to keep the heating and cooling where it belongs. The front entry houses the day-to-day garments and backpacks. Smarter Storage The family wants to make use of every square foot of space. Design the storage with a place for everything and everything in its place. Finishing Touches Hardwood flooring is a must. We think that granite is getting overused and want alternates. Surfaces and finishes must be hard wearing, durable and sustainable. The Great Outdoors Porches, patios and decks inspired by interior design principles are all a part of the future extended backyard. Plan for an outdoor kitchen, living room, and garden to relax, entertain and dine in style. Place the outdoor kitchen and dining area close to the indoor kitchen. We want to feel connected to the outdoors when inside. Healthy Homes Health and the environment matters. Specify low and no-VOC paint, eco-friendly materials, and energy-efficient appliances. © Gary Weisbrodt

HEro Taylor Layton By Gail Jansen-Kesslar

At 21 years of age, like many young girls, Taylor Layton will soon be finished her schooling and looking to her future to decide what career she should ultimately choose. A prospect that had her mother Eloise somewhat concerned, as there were few eligible jobs available in their hometown of Outlook suitable for someone with Taylor’s unique abilities. But unlike many other young girls, Taylor didn’t just sit around waiting for the perfect job to appear. Together with her mother’s help, she decided to create her own job and start her own company. Born with Down syndrome, both Taylor and her mother knew that whatever career she decided upon, it would need to be one where she could interact with people and let loose her bubbly personality. With few suitable opportunities available locally, they looked to capitalize on an area that Taylor was already well familiar with. “Taylor grew up recycling,” says mom Eloise, “it’s something that she’s done all her life, so one day when we were doing the weekly recycling, I thought, it sure would be nice if I could just pay someone to do this instead of having to do it myself.” And from there says Eloise; the seed of an idea was planted. A seed that would soon blossom into a business that would far exceed either of their expectations. Working together Eloise and Taylor came up with the idea to start up a recycling business, aptly named Taylor’s Curbside Recycling, where, for a monthly fee Taylor takes the burdensome task of recycling off the hands of her grateful customers. “I pick up customer’s recycling every Monday after school and sort it for them,” says Taylor. And while she braved the elements for the first couple of months, sorting her products outside in all weather conditions, the Town of Outlook soon stepped-up and offered to let Taylor do her sorting within the 28 |

more climate-controlled comforts of the Outlook Recycling Depot. At the start of Taylor’s foray into entrepreneurship she had only four or five customers, many of whom were friends of the family. Today, after some simple advertising, mainly through a Facebook page, Taylor’s business is more than ten times that size with nearly 70 customers on the books and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. She is even in talks with a neighbouring town to begin handling their local resident’s recycling. A rapid growth neither Taylor nor her mother foresaw but one that now has them thinking of the business as an enterprise with strong growth potential. This is also thanks also in part to Taylor’s recent win of the “Just Watch Me” video contest run by the Entrepreneurs with Disabilities program. Entered through a video created by Eloise that captured the hard work and dedication Taylor brings to both her business and the customers she serves, it’s a win that netted her a host of prizes, including: a camera; a framed certificate of congratulations; books on how to maintain a business and online tools that will help Taylor to grow her business further. This, in addition to a $1000.00 cash prize that, until recently, Taylor had earmarked for a trailer that would reduce the number of trips she needed to make after filling the company’s truck bed. As part of a surprise orchestrated by Global Television, Flaman Trailers and Lia Sophia Jewellery consultants, Taylor was gifted a custom recycling trailer by Flaman Trailers, who had heard of her story through the media. “This whole journey has been so phenomenal,” says Eloise. “I feel that we are breaking new ground and I’m so proud that my daughter is instrumental is removing labels and heightening the expectations of people with Down syndrome and disabilities in general.”


As for Taylor, thrilled as she was for the prizes and extra surprises, especially the trailer, which will suitably be painted green by Flaman, she was most thrilled with the additional surprise of a whole host of jewellery provided by Lia Sophia consultants, along with an invitation to give a motivational speech at their upcoming National convention in Toronto. “I love jewellery,” says Taylor matter-of-factly, as she models some of her new pieces. Now, in her final year of school, rather than looking to the future with uncertainty, both Taylor and her mother are excited. Goals are in place to not only increase the scope and size of the business, which includes building a website with some of the online tools she was provided, but also to grow the business to be operational three days a week. A step that may require the hiring back of Taylor’s first employee, her mother.

“I helped Taylor start the business and originally was the one driving,” says Eloise. “But now Taylor has a Job Coach provided by the Saskatoon Association for Community Living who drives the truck for her and I’ve taken a step back. Because really, it’s her business.” On the idea of being a boss, Taylor says she’s looking forward to one day being able to hire some employees, but she’s not yet ready to give up being on the frontlines to sit behind a desk. Being out in front, interacting with her clients is where she’s happiest. She knows each of them personally by name and takes joy from helping both them and the planet, through recycling. “I love my job and my business,” says Taylor. “Anyone who wants to start their own business – don’t give up, you can do it. Just like I did.”

GettinG a diploma without melanoma Students learn valuable lesson volunteering We weren’t sure what to expect when we learned that our final nursing rotation would be with the Canadian Cancer Society in Regina, but it was perfect both professionally and personally. We found ourselves immersed in a familiar issue, the struggle to fit in and look perfect. Our job was to help the Society educate young people about the danger of sun and indoor tanning. Key was the tan-free grad initiative where students are encouraged to pledge not to tan. We graduated not so long ago ourselves. We know the pressure on women to look perfect which includes having that tanned ‘healthy glow’ even though that ‘healthy glow’ is unhealthy. I, Brittany, didn’t really use sunscreen in high school. I remember competing in track and field and getting such bad sunburns that it hurt to sleep at night. To make matters worse, I followed what my friends were doing and indoor tanned for my high school grad. I got to see what that decision did to my skin thanks to the Cancer Society’s UV camera. The camera shows skin damage below the surface and to be blunt, even at the age of twenty-one, I have a lot of skin damage which is now with me for the rest of my life. One of the highlights during our time at the Society was participating in an MLA reception at the Saskatchewan legislature where we educated government representatives about the danger of indoor tanning, and the importance of banning teenagers

from the practice. What they and we now know is that tanned skin is damaged skin. We learned that skin cancer, despite being almost entirely preventable, is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canada and one of the most common for people our age. As well, indoor tanning before the age of 35 increases our risk of melanoma by 59%. This volunteer experience taught us that as healthcare professionals, we can help change habits and behaviours. We’ve had the chance to talk to elementary and high school students using the photomation camera and we shared safe ways to enjoy the sun. We encouraged teens to pledge not to tan for grad and to be proud of the skin they’re in. Our 6 weeks with the Society taught us we can make a difference and has given us the confidence and courage to speak out against indoor tanning, knowing that our voice matters.

GranD Cayman – GranD VaCaTion By Dale Strawford

By Dale Strawford

Grand Cayman wasn’t a destination that I had dreamt about. I had heard about it before but just considered it to be a place where the rich and famous parked their wealth and retreated for the winter. Besides, it was just another Caribbean island – same sun same sand. Guess I was wrong.

started to get into a routine every day climbing palm trees to snag coconuts. We’d swim, snorkel at the excellent reef right out front of our home, have lunch, go on an adventure and end up back at home for some dominoes or other board games. I love that schedule.

Part of the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman is the largest and most populated of the three islands, which also include Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Like many of the Caribbean islands, it is blessed with an abundance of beautiful beaches and sand. Seven Mile Beach on the west coast is a fantastic expanse of uninterrupted sand that stretches past inviting turquoise blue waters and luxurious properties most of us could never afford.

One day we rented a boat charter, which took us out to Stingray Sandbar to play with the stingrays in the open ocean – what a treat! We all hand fed squid to wild stingrays and it was surprising just how many of them were in the water with us. Apparently they have grown accustomed to fisherman scraps being dumped in the area and learned to congregate when they hear boats approaching. So, the locals take advantage of that and offer tours. We followed that up with another special adventure, snorkelling off Rum Point. And that was pretty much how we found most of the locations we snorkelled at on the island – special. Whether it was discovering poisonous rockfish or lionfish, swimming with turtles or eagle rays, barracuda, moray eels, puffer fish, schools of tangs or even a school of massive tarpon, being in the water was the place to be.

Maybe it’s the kid in me but I never tire of sand beneath my feet, a warm sun and crystal clear waters to cool off and jump into. Not only long, Seven Mile Beach is wide with enough room to spare for my sons and I to play a game of football. What really set Grand Cayman apart from other islands in the region I explored is the relaxed vibe. We spent a month there before Christmas and were surprised at just how quiet the island was – it never really felt like a tourist destination, something that we immediately liked. Our family rented a beachfront home in the northern Rum Point area of the island in front of a fantastic reef and in a largely quiet section of the island. This is the way we like it. A trip to the major centre, Georgetown is a 30-40 minute drive but that’s okay because we minimized our need to go there – we preferred the slow and easy going. Our beach was great and the boys 32 |

The Cayman Islands are the fifth largest banking centre in the world and this shows up in the feel of the island. With the highest standard of living in the Caribbean Grand Cayman, it is a very safe place to holiday and live, something that is important to families. Of course this is a double-edged sword, as while the Cayman Islands have no taxation, the cost of living is very high - so factor that into your vacation budget. That said, we felt at home there and spent a fair amount of time reading up on what it would take to move there. No matter how much we love


Saskatchewan, when it’s -40 out we all start to think about it sometimes.

WHOEVER SAID “WINNING

The climate was outstanding with weather in the mid-thirties almost every day with breezes available if you wanted to find them and guaranteed sun. We got into a real routine when we were there and I’d love to give that another try.

ISn’t EVERYTHING” NEVER

So I admit it - I was wrong. Grand Cayman is a place worth dreaming about. Now I just need to convince my boss to give me another month off.

It’s not about ‘queue’ jumping, it’s about your health, and what is more important than that? Picture a 50-year-old woman, overweight and being slowly crippled by deteriorating knees, yet unable to have knee surgery until she’s lost the weight; a 20-year-old man whose premature hairlines makes him look not a day over 45; an individual with limited finances, that needs expensive dental implants and crowns, or someone, no matter what age, struggling with the medical and emotional rigors of cancer, knowing that odds of five year survival aren’t promising.

By visiting another destination where the treatments for these and dozens more conditions aren’t just plentiful, but are more advanced and surprisingly affordable, people from all walks of life can have their health and happiness restored in weeks, not years.

By Adele Kulyk , CMTS

Assuring good   and   lasting   health   is   not   merely   our   responsibility,  it's  a  daily  task.  We  wake  up  every  day  and   without  realizing  it  or  thinking  too  much  about  it  our  lives   go  on  in  apparent  simplicity,  until  we  have  to  “deal  with”  a   health  issue,  then  comes  change.     Despite   our   best   efforts   to   stay   healthy,   sometimes   health   just  seems  to  be  slipping  between  the  cracks  of  time.     In  reality,  living  a  healthy  life  24/7  is  easier  said  than  done.   Most  of  us  can  manage  small  changes  in  diet  and  exercise,   but  when  we  find  this  isn’t  enough,  accessing  medical  care   can   be   a   daunting   task.   As   Canadians,   we   face   significant   wait  times  for  to  see  our  doctors  for  certain  procedures  or   diagnostics   and   we   are   conditioned   to   believe   that   we   don’t   have   choices   or   a   voice   in   terms   of   our   personal   healthcare,   and   today,   this   couldn’t   be   further   from   the   truth.     There  was  a  time  when  the  healthcare  map  was  as  flat  as   the   course   that   Columbus   navigated   to   the   New   World.   Barriers  prevailed.  Now,  thanks  in  part  to  the  breakdown   of   language   barriers,   improved   transportation   and   the   advent   of   technology,   healthcare   borders   are   erased   and   access  to  medical  treatment  seems  as  easy  as  boarding  a   plane.       Today,   web-­‐Savvy   patients   and   their   families   are   researching  medical  conditions,  dental  and  doctor  ratings,

If you   are   considering   traveling   for   treatment,   commonly   referred   to   as   “medical   tourism,”   your   family   and   your   doctor  at  home  will  be  concerned  for  your  safety  and  well-­‐ being.   They   may   warn   you   against   travel   to   another   country   and   you   should   be   prepared   for   this   reaction.   They   will   want   to   know   if   you   have   diligently   researched   and   obtained   all   the   pertinent   information   about   the   hospital   and   doctor   that   will   be   treating   you   abroad,   and   that  you  will  be  receiving  quality  based,  outcomes  driven   care.     In   my   line   of   work,   medical   tourism   facilitation,   I   talk   to   doctors  in  countries  like  Mexico,  Germany  and  Costa  Rica   all  the  time.  Not  surprisingly,  there  isn’t  a  day  that  goes  by   that  I  don’t  learn  something  new,  something  useful  to  my   health  and  the  health  of  my  family,  friends  and  clients.     The  focus  is  on  how  people  can  become  more  empowered   in   making   decisions   about   their   health   care   by   taking   action  to  bring  optimal  healing  and  well-­‐being  to  their  life   journey   when   they   are   willing   to   travel   to   get   the   care   they  need.   So,  how  do  you  confront  a  medical  need  when  you  don’t   have   the   experience   or   tools   to   do   so?       The   key   to   finding   answers   is   to   engage   a   Certified   Professional   Medical   Travel   Specialist   to   ensure   that   you   find   the   right   treatment   abroad,   and   plan   for   the   aftercare   you   need   when  you  return  home.

BREAKFAST SERVED ALL DAY, EVERY DAY! Established in the 1970s by current owner Ernie Kouros’ mother and father, K Family Kitchen is reminiscent of your own family’s kitchen. A quick scan of the menu reveals that there is something on it for everyone. “I always tell or new customers to close their eyes and pick something off the menu”, said Ernie (between kitchen, cash and host shifts on a busy Saturday). “That’s going to be your new favourite - I can guarantee it,” he continued, smiling. Ernie, his wife Robyn and their daughter Ava have a reason to smile. Building on the Kouros family’s established reputation for home-style cooking using only the freshest ingredients, and the Kouros family’s unbending rule to only ever make every dish from scratch, K Family Kitchen is what is it today - a full-service restaurant for everyone. Loyal families continue to drop in regularly for great food and time spent with one another, all because of the Kouros family’s dedication. The menu is full of comfort food and Ernie and Robyn guarantee exactly what you order is delivered to your table fresh, hot and in record time. “You never leave K Family Kitchen hungry, either’” said Ernie. “We make sure you’re full and satisfied when you visit us; our portions are hearty. Your time here with us is well spent and your appetite is satiated, just like at home.”

The menu is full of a wide ranges of choices. The breakfast menu itself keeps customers’ cravings at bay with Bennies, pancakes and “skillets scrambles” of home-style hash browns, peppers and onions, eggs any style and a choice of bacon, ham or sausage. The lunch and dinner menu offer innumerable dishes with multiple combinations and variations. Your meal is customizable to your taste at K Family Kitchen. Because K Family Kitchen offers its customers choice, it is no wonder that customers keep coming back for the best breakfast around. “Charlie’s Favourite” is a staple on the menu. “Charlie was a loyal and regular customer,” explained Ernie. “He’s no longer with us, but we always remember what our special customers like best.” New loyal customers keep on coming through the doors, and K Family Kitchen keeps the dishes rolling out at lightning speed and welcomes you seven days a week from 6.a.m. to 9 p.m. in their homey atmosphere so you can enjoy their home-cooked fare when you want it. “We’re busy, but that’s what our customers like about us - we’re here when your family wants to drop in, and the coffee is always on.” said Ernie. Ralph and Sharon, two loyal customers who regularly drop in for a satisfying meal and time together, had this to say about K Family Kitchen: “It’s a wonderful place; you feel at home here. It’s cozy and the food is always fresh.” Drop in at K Family Kitchen at 2302 9th Avenue North for home-style cooking with your family. Robyn will greet you at the door with a smile and a cup of hot coffee while Ernie gets your order on the table. Spend time at K Family Kitchen with the Kouros family, and your own.

Seeing AlASkA from the inSide By Cathe Offet

The Alaska cruise season starts in May and ends in October for most cruise lines. As to the best time for weather – there is no good answer to this – even in June or July you may need to pack a heavy jacket along with your shorts and t-shirts. You may need the jacket - or you may be having to worry more about wearing sunscreen. Whether you want to visit Alaska for the whales, the glaciers, the wildlife or the wilderness, there are options available. If you only have a week, the Inside Passage will work well for you. If you have more time, consider a more in-depth tour of Alaska with one of the many cruise/tour options available.

As anyone who has had been fortunate enough to visit Alaska will tell you, visiting it should be on your bucket list. It truly is one of the journeys of a lifetime and many passengers will go back for the experience more than once. Most people don’t have the luxury of the time it takes to do an extended land tour of Alaska or are simply not equipped to do it, so cruise ships have been filling our needs to visit the wonders of this amazing area. Cruising the Inside Passage is the most time effective methods of seeing Alaska, normally being a one-week passage from Vancouver or Seattle and back. From Saskatchewan, flights are available that allow us to leave in the morning of the cruise departure day and usually return home the day the ship returns one week later. Most of the itineraries include port stops in Skagway, Ketchikan and Juneau, as well as the onboard opportunity to get up close to the glaciers with a visit to Tracy Arm or Glacier Bay National Park. This is considered the highlight of the trip for many passengers.

The cruise/tour is typically a 7-day cruise with a 3-8 night land tour either pre or postCoach cruise. & The cruise isTravel typically north Vacation boundPackages from Seattle or Vancouver or south bound from Seward Insurance Rail Tours or Whittier, Alaska. These options also afford you the opportunity to spend time in the pristine Alaska wilderness. Alaska is an extremely popular cruise destination and most of the cruise lines have multiple sailings available. With all of the choices out there – avail yourself of the services of your travel professional to ensure you get the right itinerary, right cruise Carthe Rentals Flights Hotels line and the right ship.

spring word scramble I know you hear the same thing every year but this winter seemed to last forever, didn’t it? Spring is finally here and we’ll soon see all of the beautiful flowers in bloom, the days will start to get warmer and of course, the Easter Bunny will soon be hopping his way through your neighbourhood. To celebrate the start of a new season, I’ve put together a Spring Word Scramble game. Each of the scrambled words below has something to do with spring (what you’d see outside, activities, holidays, etc.). Simply unscramble each word and write it under the scrambled word in the box provided. The answers are all included below.
