Sarah will be sharing a part of ‘her’ story, including the peaks and valleys she has travelled since beginning her company 20 years ago, and the tools that she uses to continue climbing towards her vision in both life and sport.  Who do you want to be? Sarah will pass on the powerful tools you need to become the person you wish to be.

Sarah believes we are capable of unimaginable human potential when we learn to harness the power of the mind. She is passionate about both the mental and physical realms of healing, training and exploring the boundaries of self perceived limitations. She works passionately with her clients and provides them with the knowledge and tools they need to overcome obstacles and reach their goals and dreams in life and sport.

Power Talk Speakers

We couldn’t wait to tell you: Power Talk is back! 

Our retail landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. Online shopping, consumer expectations of discounting, workplace relations, consumer confidence and a range of other factors have created challenges and opportunities.

Four members are going to give out a few fun facts, share their knowledge, and maybe even save you a few bucks.  Come meet these folks that are in the Comox Valley business trenches getting things done.

Featured Member- Monica Parkin

Monica has recently partnered with Coast Capital Savings as their mobile Mortgage Specialist. Her goal is to take some of the stress out of the financing process while also arming consumers with the knowledge to make good financial decisions.

Clients that work with Monica get to be involved in the decisions around which mortgage product to choose and have someone available to answer financing questions any time during their home buying process. She assists with purchases and refinancing and loves helping first-time buyers navigate the process! The criteria for everything she does in her business is “what’s best for the client?”

Monia is a farm girl at heart and when I’m not helping homeowners, she can be found hanging with her goats and assorted canine companions.

  • She also enjoys speaking/teaching on a variety of topics, including:
    relationship marketing and best practices
  • conflict resolution skills
  • grow your commissioned sales business with integrity
  • neurodiversity and communicating effectively with individuals on the autism spectrum
  • 5 steps to a better presentation
  • first-time homebuyer seminars
  • how to maximize your credit score
