Success Series


Be part of a very NEW kind of Success & Support Network

The SheConnex Success Series is a space where women come together to talk about Success.


At Meet Ups:

Through a live interview we showcase fabulous women who are defining Success on their own terms in popular, yet cozy eateries along the 1000 Islands region.


We uncover it all. The triumphs, the challenges, the tipping points, and the pivot points that helped to evolve her along her journey. We laugh, we cry, we cheer, we hug, we bond. We make connexions that lead to collaborations, mentorships, and friendships.


We love to talk about: Success, Leadership, Confidence, Ambition, Entrepreneurship, Communication, and Lifestyle By Design.


Hosted in Brockville, Ontario, Canada:


  • Brockville, the City of the 1000 Islands along the St. Lawrence River on the last Tuesday of the month at the Brockberry Cafe in the downtown core.



Join the Encore Career Women Facebook Group where you can connect with other like minded women who are working hard to reach their definition of Success.


Who are Encore Carrier Women?


  • Women who have found their voice, embraced their brilliance and then created a career they love.
  • Women who have ditched their corporate career for what they would describe as “worthwhile work”.
  • Women who have been downsized and who are ready to take the opportunity to create a kickass second career that fuels their soul.
  • Women who have decided to opt out of their current job with a planned exit strategy designed to include a clear runway for the big leap.


As I’ve often said, “I had a fabulous career,and now I’m having a second fabulous career!”


This group is for YOU if you have a desire to:


  • Connect with other professional women.
  • Participate in conversations about the challenges of taking the leap.
  • Share your brilliance with us so that everyone can create a profitable and soul-sustaining dream career.
  • Respectfully converse and provide insight with all members of this inclusive group.


Join us if you have a desire to:


  • Find new friends who don’t think you are crazy for wanting more.
  • Engage with others who are building Exit Strategies to leave their current work.
  • Engage with others who have a definite career path that they want to follow.
  • Connect and learn from others who are nurturing their small businesses and new career paths.
