Now that the weather has officially turned in Vancouver, it's time to bring out the flowers to brighten the mood! I find that adding a little dose of pretty really helps keep me motivated.⠀ ⠀ What about you?

In between the crazy, I'm giving myself the time to curl up in my favourite chair with a book.⠀ ⠀ Currently reading The Purpose Revolution and it is exactly what I needed to push forward on the path that I'm on. It talks about how to lead with purpose, create engagement, and create a company that is about more than just money - it's about doing good in this world.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #bookclub #whatireadtoday #thepurposedrivenlife #thepurposerevolution #socialgood #morethanprofit #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

One of the great privileges of doing what I do is the calibre of people I get to meet.⠀ ⠀ At a big youth innovation showcase in May, we had the former Governor General David Johnston doing a fireside chat, alongside Charles Chang, an innovation genius here in Vancouver. If you’re looking for a dose of inspiration, check out YELL Canada on Youtube. We’ve got this discussion up on the channel 😊⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #canadianinnovation #canadianinnovationweek #youthinnovation #youthentrepreneur #startwithwhy #theartofslowliving #livemoremagic #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #doitfortheprocess #makersgonnamake #communityovercompetition #creativepreneur #risingtide #dontquityourdaydream #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

This week kicks off a full 2 months of insanity, but I am SO excited. Lots of opportunities for friends to take in some epic events!⠀ ⠀ 1⃣ October 3: Great Wines Charity Gala benefiting Access Pro Bono, an amazing organization increasing access to justice. ⠀ ⠀ 2⃣ October 14: @cascadiaweddingshow produced by yours truly! It’s catered towards the Pacific Northwest lover at heart. It’s for those that want to feel good about supporting local and have an appreciation for sustainability. ⠀ ⠀ 3⃣ October 19: i’m teaming up with North Shore Tourism to host the Craft Beer Week Launch Party at the Pipe Shop! We’ve got North Shore breweries providing tasters, sweet music all evening, and some other fun stuff you’ll just have to wait and find out 😉⠀ ⠀ And then in November we embrace the mad all over again! We’ve got some incredible projects going down that I can’t wait to share with you!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

It can be easy to get down on ourselves sometimes. And as an entrepreneur, I feel that more so. It can be so easy to get hyperfocused on the granular, the day-to-day, on what it takes for us to "survive" this crazy life.⠀ ⠀ But are you taking the time to do long(er) term planning? If you lifted your head up, what would you see?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mondaymotivation #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #lifelesson #wordsofwisdom #creativequote #liveauthentic #lookingforward #longtermplanning #headhigh #communityovercompetition #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at Vancouver, British Columbia

Say whaaaaat? It's the first day of Fall! For me, that means all the cozy things. Bring on the sweaters and scarves and warming beverages.

It's been a while so I thought I'd introduce myself to all the new faces around here! Hi! My name is Natasha and I'm an event and wedding planner that believes in creating community and moments of connection.⠀ ⠀ I've been in the events industry for more than a decade now, volunteering for a number of charities and causes in different capacities. When I started volunteering in high school, I had no idea I would fall in love with this industry like I have, but sometimes those unexpected a-ha moments are the best right?!⠀ ⠀ A few fun facts about me:⠀ 1️⃣ I've shaved my head to fundraise for the @cancersociety 4 times now! The first time I did it, I was scared out of my mind. By the 4th time, it was just so damn liberating! So much so, I would rock a permanent bald head if I could!⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣ Since shaving my head, I've been affectionately named Hedgehog. Blame it on the Asian spikey afaro! Can definitely be a little prickly 😉⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣ Coffee and I are a match made in heaven. I drink a minimum of 3 cups a day, and am functioning at my best when I'm loaded up on caffeine. I'm a proud Starbucks drinker, but I also love caffeinating myself at the local cafe.⠀ ⠀ Your turn now! Tell me one fun fact about yourself!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #fridayintroductions #coffeealldaylong #caffeineaddict #vancouvercafe #vancouvercoffeeshop #giveback #givingback #community #vancouvercommunity #changemaker #vancouverchangemaker #dogood #lifeworthliving #girlboss #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #eventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

Oprah killin' the game as always. ⠀ ⠀ You become what you believe. If you don't think you can do something, chances are you won't. But if you change your mindset and legitimately believe that it will happen, more than often it will.⠀ ⠀ The world works in mysterious ways.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #mondaymotivation #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #lifelesson #wordsofwisdom #creativequote #liveauthentic #communityovercompetition #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

I am obsessed with these awards that we created for the BC Civil Liberties Association awards gala.⠀ ⠀ These pieces of wood were live edge, and had that wonderful fresh cut wood smell. And! They were initially on Etsy selling as small shelves. But with a little research, we found a spot in Vancouver that could do the engraving for us and voila! Beautiful unique awards for some rad humans.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vancouverchangemaker #vancouvercharity #vancouvercharityevent #fundraisingevent #fundraisinggala #awardidea #woodawards #liveauthentic #doinggood #givingback #bccla #civilliberties #justiceforall #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan

Friends, this next topic of @lrsglobal is something so personal and I'm excited to be creating a space for this conversation.⠀ ⠀ Invisible illness.⠀ ⠀ ❓Do you know what it is?⠀ 💬Have you ever had to have a conversation with your friends or family on the topic?⠀ 🤝What does support around invisible illness look like for you?⠀ ⠀ Through this event, our wish is to raise awareness, give hope, and provide a platform for others to discuss their struggles with any invisible illness.⠀ ⠀ Want to join us? Send me a DM and I'll get you on the invite list.⠀ 📸 @petitephotography_ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #livingroomseries #lrsglobal #yvrlrs #conversationseries #community #vancouvercommunity #thingstodoinvancouver #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #vancouverevents

I've been so fortunate this week. Surrounded by incredible company and so much love.⠀ ⠀ As we move into a new month (also, how is it already September?!) I’m taking a few minutes to breathe and reflect on this crazy journey. ⠀ ⠀ But then it’s go time! New adventures kick in this month and I’m ready to get going. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #20ontherise #vancouverchangemaker #vancouvercharity #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouverweddingplanner #vancouverweddingcoordinator #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at North Vancouver, British Columbia

The news is officially out! Today I was officially named as one of the 20 on the rise finalists in the Event Professionals category.⠀ ⠀ I feel a huge sense of pride to be included amongst these other amazing humans, and I'm literally still in shock.⠀ ⠀ From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.⠀ Thank you for being a part of this community.⠀ Thank you for continuing to support this dream of mine.⠀ ⠀ A few words from my application:⠀ "My biggest accomplishment was having the courage to venture out on my own and start Clearwater. I battled a lot of self doubt and people telling me I couldn't do it, that starting my own business at my age was too big a risk. But I just knew deep inside me that I was meant for something more. That I could use Clearwater as a bigger platform to do good. And in under 2 years, the support from the community has been overwhelming and I couldn't imagine doing anything else."⠀ ⠀ We've done some amazing things together, and I can't wait to see where we end up next!⠀ ⠀ Want to see the full list of people?

I finally took a much needed weekend to focus on myself.⠀ ⠀ In the company of some other RAD humans, we beta tested this incredible experience I can't want to share more about with you in 2019! If you're a personal development junkie, and you like walk n talk's, then this might just be for you. Until then,🤐⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #selfcare #personaldevelopment #selfdevelopment #communitybuilding #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #vancouverevents #vancouverweddings #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan at North Vancouver, British Columbia

It's been a crazy couple weeks, but it's official and I'm SO excited to share the news! I'll be stepping in as the new Executive Director and Event Producer for a non-profit organization called MARS, which focuses on finding new ways to protect ourselves online while also educating and supporting the community. In a male dominated industry, I'm ready to get to work!⠀ ⠀ I love planning events, and it will always be a core part of what I do. But when I left my non-profit role a couple years back, I felt like a piece of me was missing. Not anymore! I'm excited to dive back into governance and help facilitate growth.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #vancouverchangemaker #vancouvercharity #givingback #communitybuilding #vancouvertech #startwithwhy #theartofslowliving #livemoremagic #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #doitfortheprocess #communityovercompetition #postitfortheaesthetic #creativepreneur #risingtide #dontquityourdaydream #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #vancitybusinessbabe #vancouvereventplanner #vancouvereventcoordinator #eventproducer #vancouverevents #vancouvereventprofessional #vancouverentrepreneur #clearwatereventsvan⠀ at Vancouver, British Columbia
