    Special Episode -The (Surgically Repaired) Heart of Elaine

    Special Episode -The (Surgically Repaired) Heart of Elaine

    Ron here, aka "Elaine's Husband". As you know, 2020 has been a rough year for - basically the whole planet. For Elaine, she really has a passion for helping other women entrepreneurs and one way she has done that is by meeting with a local group of them in person, for about the past 5 years. And of course that is not happening anymore! So that's got her down a little bit. And today is her birthday, so I reached out via email a few days ago to about a dozen of her close circle of female entrepreneurs, and almost immediately I got 10 heartfelt messages stating birthday wishes and the impacts Elaine has had on these women's lives. So, since I have control of publishing her podcast, I thought why not put them out there for you to hear? Kleenex optional, I know Elaine will be bawling.p.s. for details on the surgically repaired heart, check out episode 87 - The One Where I Had a Stroke.www.elaineskitchentable.com

Councillor Trish Mandewo ,

Not your ordinary podcast

Shed some tears while listening to Elaine Tan Comeau's podcast. For those of you who do not know Elaine, she is the founder of Easy Daysies (Started on her kitchen table in our very own City of Coquitlam - Municipality), owner operator of Mompreneurs - Vancouver and founder of Elaine's Kitchen Table. She is a powerhouse, an inspiration and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.

Her first podcast after a 2 year hiatus is a MUST watch. Thank you for being you Elaine. May the Lord God continue to bless you and your family.

A great resource

Great quality content, excellent resources and always worth the time to connect with Elaine and her guests. A wealth of knowledge that I can apply to business and family life.

Bek Shams ,

Great source of inspiration and learning opportunity !

I absolutely love all of the perspectives and ideas shared at Elaine’s Kitchen Table by Elaine and her guest speakers. Elaine is a real life example of success who have achieved personal and professional goals by still managing her business from her kitchen table.
