Workshop: Join us May 17 for Minding Your Business: A Conversation on Mental Health & Wellness


Mental health consultant Martina Kelades joins the Vintage Sellers Community May 17 to suggest strategies for self-employed shop owners to manage their mental wellness

Do you ever feel like you struggle to manage your reselling business with all of the other things going on in your life? Chances are you have a lot of obligations in addition to your shop: another job(s), school, family, health, friends, home...the list goes on.

As entrepreneurs of small businesses, we play an essential role within our communities and make significant contributions to the Canadian economy. Yet, the Canadian Mental Health Association reports that one in five (21%) entrepreneurs feel satisfied with their mental health less than once a week.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and the Vintage Sellers Community is thrilled to host this upcoming event with mental health consultant Martina Kelades to help you prioritize wellness on your entrepreneurial journey.

Martina’s roots are grounded in sharing stories that have been silenced to serve communities and individuals in living a life on purpose — using various platforms to tell life stories to educate and support personal awareness for individual and organizational mental health and wellness.

Through her struggles with mental health, particularly related to burnout, anxiety and depression, Martina committed to using her pain as her pulpit — creatively expressing her experiences using personal narratives to normalize mental health conversations and encourage emotional wellness — this was the birthplace of Life Out Loud.
