5 Coaching Sessions for $50

There's still plenty of time to train and get ready for the event. To sweeten the pot, I'd like to offer anyone who joins Team Homespunspa a special bonus. If you're interested, I will give you 5 Coaching Sessions for the low, low price of $50 -- that's $10 a session! How does that sound? Please email or call for more info.

Working with a professional coach will help you gain more clarity and more self-awareness. Through our coaching conversations, you'll start creating a life that you'll be excited about. I love coaching because it's future-oriented. It's not about fixing or rehashing the past. We'll start where you are right now and if you want to set a goal to participate as a runner or a walker in the CIBC Run for the Cure this year, than it would be my honour to stay beside you on your journey.

I look forward to hearing from you, Maria.

About Homespunspa

The concept of Homespunspa was sprung from a sleep-over in 1999 after I invited some friends to a slumber party that turned into a spa party.

We each created our own home spa treatments for hair, nails, face and body using natural ingredients like avocados, lemons and essential oils.

That night, my love of spas was awakened and as my head hit the pillow, the word, "Homespunspa" was born.

Homespunspa Enterprises was established in 2001 and the sheep logo was commissioned later that year. In 2002, I launched and the site has been live on the Internet without interruption all of these years.

In 2006, I self-published a book of home spa recipes entitled, How to Throw a Home Spa Pajama Party the Homespunspa Way.

In 2009, I added a blog to the Homespunspa website. In 2010, I graduated from the Aveda Institute with a diploma in Esthetics. In 2011, I added a mobile spa department to Homespunspa. In 2014, I added life coaching to the Homespunspa menu of services.

Also in 2014, I started publishing the Homespunspa e-newsletter, Ewesletter, each month, during the third week of the month, on or after the 16th day.

Thanks for reading the Homespunspa Ewesletter. I hope to see you in person soon.
