Good People, Good Words

I've been a member for the last year and what I love is that it is more than networking. The Nest is a community that has a special quality because of Monica's vision and her commitment to her powerful ideas. All women are welcome, and that's how I feel every time I go to a Breaky or special event. I've met heart-centered people in business from all walks of life and made high-quality connections.

Courageous Self Care

Women of Inspiration for me is someone who really has a story and is not afraid to share it. I’m inspired by their stories and I think that when we are able to find a voice and put that story out there, it really is something that can resonate with a lot of other people and really inspire them.

This is a testimonial given for Canadian Business Chicks.

The first time I met Monica Kretschmer I was in awe of her passion for creating a safe and nurturing space for the people around her to engage in authentic connections.  I have watched her involved in one on one conversations, speaking with small groups and acknowledging the inspirational lives of a room of 400 women.  In these situations, her unique ability to quickly understand a person’s inner purpose allows everyone the opportunity to see and find reverence for who they are with a deep sense of acceptance.  Monica has an exceptional level of commitment to building and growing a community of inspired women who in turn are positively impacting our world.  I am grateful that I have experienced Monica's truly caring, compassionate, and authentic way of interacting with people and am looking forward to modelling these qualities in my own business and personal life.
