Trailblazer: Lori Triolo
Producer, Actor, Acting / Voice / Bodywork Coach
I do many things. I'm an actor, director, producer, teacher... Leader. I think my most important job is helping others find their voice. Whether it be an actor, a CEO, a computer programmer or scientist. As a child I was debilitatingly shy. I was afraid to ask questions so I spent a great deal of time observing the world and human behaviour. I believe this made me incredibly sensitive to the needs of others. I've spent many years continuing to develop my skills as a guide for others to find their courage to be present and authentic in a world that's constantly trying to inhibit the very same thing.
Most meaningful achievement: My most meaningful achievement is the life I'm living right now. I love sharing the work I do with others who are interested in becoming a better version of themselves while healing. This is difficult work at the best of times but I consider it an extreme honor to help guide others to feel more empowered in their lives.
Lessons learned: That in order to be a master at anything you must be willing to continue to learn until there is no more life to live.
Best advice: Just breathe...and, you have to go through the fear to uncover your joy.
The future is: A thrill ride (where fear and excitement meet).

This one, I wrote at the beginning of the year, but haven't had the courage to post until now. I've been sitting on these same emotions for half the year now, just another thing to deal with on my pages-long "to do" list. I've been giving sneak peeks about this topic to some of the most important people in my life, and I'm realizing that it's not just the entrepreneur's story here, it's so many people's story. Any of us that reach beyond our comfort zone, we're all susceptible to self-doubt. And it's OK. So, the courage comes now, after many, many long walks on the beach with our puppy, and many more joyful moments spent with those that I love. Grounded (in all ways) for the moment, here (finally) is another few words from me...
The past 3 months been a rollercoaster of emotions for me. My startup ethical fashion business has been gathering steam and I’ve found myself suddenly being recognized for several awards. (Read more...)
This past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. I was named a Top Finalist for The 2018 Mompreneur Awards and will be flying off to Toronto for the National Mompreneurs® Conference at the beginning of March.

This year, over 1200 women were nominated or registered for the award, and 205 entrants advanced. After accumulating points based on a public voting stage from over 90,000 public voters and 30,000 supporters and impression ratings from a selection committee, 23 Top Finalists were chosen from all across Canada.
