Carol Elliot

At the May meeting of the Comox Valley Women's Business Network, long-time CVWBN member, Carol Elliot, of Saying Goodbye: Funeral Celebrations Done Right! was announced as the recipient of our $500 Business Bursary Award. Unfortunately, Carol was not in attendance and able to accept the award from last year's recipient, Terri Perrin, Fine Art of Intention Feng Shui.

Here's what Terri had to say about Carol and why she was selected to receive this financial support:

"In the past two years, Carol has enrolled in and completed a Funeral Celebrant course with The Celebrant Institute & Foundation in New Jersey. She has started a new business, designed and printed promotional material, joined, or remained a member of five different networking organizations.  All while continuing to serve on our board of Directors.

"Carol says that she has had more people ask her about planning a funeral than writing and presenting their funeral script so she would like to further her education in this area. In order to competently advise on funeral costs, from one provider or another, or to speak about pre-needs planning, she needs to be more familiar with the internal working of a funeral home.

"The modules of study she will pursue with the CVWBN  bursary will give her the education to assist the elderly in nursing homes and retirement home as well as being available to offer advice to the general public.

"Please join us in congratulating Carol on her successful application for the 2019 Business Bursary."
