It is with a happy heart I write this recommendation for Dorothy Briggs. I had the pleasure of procuring one of the sought after pages in the 2009 edition of Womanition Magazine and I can tell you I have had nothing but amazing results. My Linked In, Facebook Fan Page and website site all saw increased hits after Womanition hit the stands. A sure sign of success.

They are both fantastic marketing tools and certainly help get your name out there!” February 10, 2010

You're simply the best Dorothy! - Carmen Jubinville, The Big Life Coach, www.carmenjubinville.com
I can't thank you enough for the support and promotion of Womanition with my business , Periosmart.
You have helped me so much! In 2010, the market was saturated with dental hygienists. I was working part-time and was very unhappy. I didn't ever think that in my 18 year career that I wouldn't have a full-time job!
One dismal night I thought "people have asked me for better tasting fluoride for years, joking about rum and cola flavor and Irish cream." I figured it is time to give the people what they want! I wrote up a business plan and spent my savings to "try" to see how Happy Hour and Scoopz Fluoride would work. Then, I guess I would have to try it on patients thus Periosmart Mobile Dental Hygiene was born! I thought I would see some seniors and maybe in 3-5 years make a living. Following after a brief conversation with my soccer teammate, Kim Deep, I told her what I was considering. She asked me to come with her to a Womanition meeting as her guest.
I didn't realize meeting Dorothy Briggs would be a life changing moment!
Since then, I have been able to draw a salary and pay my bills as well as secure a contract with the Greater Edmonton Foundation of which they have 3000 residents! Your promotion of my business, Periosmart Mobile Dental Hygiene Services featuring Happy Hour and Scoopz Fluoride has renewed my interest in the profession and allowed me to become involved with drug and alcohol recovery and homeless centres.
The product is also approved by Health Canada and I am also manufacturing for distribution to dental offices within Canada! I am living the life I always wanted but didn't know how to get there! I am so grateful for all your help ! Thank you Womanition! Sincerely, - Tracy Fedorak, Director of Periosmart
“Good evening Dorothy I just wanted to take a moment to get back to you on how Womanition has made a difference in my life. As I’ve shared with you previously I know that my business would not be where it is now if not for Womanition. This next part is between you and I. In my first year in Edmonton (4 years ago) I had 15 clients all year and barely made 15,000. Now only 4 years later I’ve hit six figures with 4 part-time staff and I’m already sitting at 20 clients for 2019. I’m also moving into a new location next week that is a store front with 600 sq ft. I’m so excited. So what made the difference in the past 4 years? Womanition! Trust me when I say everything I needed to know about growing my business I learned by attending Womanition Luncheons and Bizbrigades. Even today I met a new client and she mentioned Dorothy Briggs and Donna Worthington and how wonderful you both had been in supporting a charity event she held. My parents told me growing up that you are known by the company you keep and I believe that is part of the successful formula that is Womanition! I have done business with many members and I collaborate with many of the ladies from Womanition and I love introducing women to the group as well. Because I know what it can do for someone’s business. I have made some wonderful friendships that continue to bloom and enrich my life. Barely a day goes by where I don’t talk to someone who I met through the Womanition Group. When I moved to Edmonton in 2014 I didn’t know anyone! Of course, many of the members of the Senior Solutions Team are women who I met through Womanition and it brings so much credibility to potential clients and members of our team when I can point out so many members in the magazine. I really can’t even express how much being part of Womanition has meant to me. It has changed my life!! Smiles and blessings to you always Dorothy” -Karen Murdock
