Rick Petry is a speaker, consultant, Ultimate Success Coach and self-described neuroscience nerd.

If you answered: “yes,” then you’re going to enjoy Rick’s story.  He was hand picked by Jack Canfield to be a trainer of his program and share the stage with him.

At over 85, because of osteoporosis, suffering a broken hip could be the beginning of the end for some people. Learning to walk again and the excruciating pain of rehabbing a broken hip may simply be more than most choose to bear. That wasn’t the case for his mother. Instead of being the beginning of the end, his mother's broken hip signaled the beginning of one the most incredible journeys of his life.

Diane is a Personal Development Lifecoach and a mother of 2 amazing teenagers. Her formal education is no match to what she has learned from raising her kids, claiming “they have taught her everything she knows”

A story teller and an advocate of personal growth, she has dedicated her life to helping others discover their whiteboard messages and ultimately finding their voice from within.

Raised in a home where she learned to believe that in order to survive in life she had to fight for everything she wanted and that she was to trust no one but herself ~ Diane tells her story about the messages she accumulated on her “Whiteboard of Life” and how those messages governed her every thought and every move, creating a life where she was in constant pursuit of happiness.

The trauma her parents endured while living in their communistic country, created their belief system, which they in turn used when parenting Diane and her brother. It is those messages that were engrained in her at a subconscious level and the words she ultimately lived by.

Her messages were to trust no one and so she learned at a very young age how to disengage herself emotionally. Craving her fathers love and her mothers attention she found herself unworthy and living a life with no purpose. What she didn’t realize at the time is that it was her behaviour and belief system that ultimately created her scenario, which in fact created the life she was living. It was when she stepped out of her paradigm, erased all the messages on her “whiteboard” and changed her beliefs about people and relationships that she was finally free to live the life she had always imagined living.

Katherine Bourget, MA, is a graduate of the Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy program at Wilfrid Laurier University. After a decade long career in business and finance, a mid-life re-evaluation occurred prompting her to pursue a different path. This journey led her to the therapist’s chair, first as a client and then as a practitioner in her counselling practice, BeYourOwnSage.

After years of living in a "chaotic" home, Katherine was removed from her mother at the age of eight by the Children's Aid Society. Initially promised that it would only be temporary, within a year her mother signed over her parental rights. For the next eight years she would live in foster homes, group homes, institutions and the streets before being granted special permission to move out on her own at age 16.
