“It’s a twin thing”

– gopublikk

In early March we were approached to take part of an inspiring project, CommYOUnityYVR. The last couple of days you have seen us mention this event in our social media channels – we’re super excited and touched to have been asked to take part in such an inspiring project. The screening event for CommYOUnityYVR is tomorrow, June 10. It is aimed to promote local entrepreneurs to share their story and inspire others. We are grateful to have been asked to take part in such an amazing project and vision because we love to share stories and collaborate with locals – we love what we do. Kiana Heighton, director of the show, Co-Founder and Community Event Director of Community for a Sustainable World collaborated with a total of 30 entrepreneurs from different fields. Kiana asked questions (tough ones too), and dug deep to reveal each story and have it presented publicly on screen night to a group of local individuals. A big shoutout to Sandy M for all the editing and her videography skills, and another shout out to Tessa B and Ashley R for coming together and bringing a vision to life.

We are ready to mingle, eat, and have some drinks on Saturday! More importantly, to collaborate, connect, and speak to many entrepreneurs and individuals. We look forward to sharing our story, learning about others obstacles, challenges and success. To inspire and be inspired!

As entrepreneurs, we are thrilled to be a part of this moving project that will be happening this coming Saturday. We shared our story with Kiana and got deep down and personal with her about Gopublikk as a business and how we started laying the groundwork for success. Being part of this screening brings us so much joy – to be a part of a night that can impact not just one person, but several from the community to commit to an unrelenting pursuit of a goal they may have – that itself is rewarding. We love what we do and you’ll find us sharing that in everything that we do.

This Saturday it is going to be an honour to be in a room filled with many individuals that share the same vision; bringing the community together.

Catch us at 397 Alexander St. Vancouver, BC V6A 1C4 🙂

(Yeah, we put the address there on purpose!)

Passion + Love goes a long way

Aside from all the questions we get asked, their are two that always come up. That is,  “why do [we] work and go to school full time?” and “how do [we] manage to do so much with such little sleep?” Our answer to this is very simple. We love and enjoy everything that we do. We have goals and aspirations that drives us to take things further and look beyond the horizon. As much as we don’t like doing homework, we love what we learn. As much as we like our sleep more than our work, we love our jobs. We’re used to working extra hard and putting in extra hours so we have the option to get the things that we want and more. To achieve greatness and become unstoppable is the goal here. So we shoot for the stars and expect results later and not right away. This way we are forced to always be on our A game and surprised when we do see our results and achievements instantly. And who doesn’t like surprises? The excitement you feel when you get the unexpected is like the one you get from a sudden standing ovation. Best.feeling.ever. 

Now to answer the question “Why do we work and go to school full time?” Well for the most part we do it because we want to and we enjoy it. We also like to think and do things outside of the average circle of people. Keep in mind when we say average, we’re referring to what we’ve read and heard from others; that is we live in a world where their are three different types of people. Each which choose to make decisions and live their life differently. The most common type we hear about is those who settle for mediocrity. We hear more about these kind of individuals because its “easy” to seperate and distinguish them from others. Mediocre people tend to end up settling for whatever and not max their potential. For this reason, we strive to be above average. We also say it’s doable because of the support system that we have. Although we may be pushing it, we go out with our friends and family, and we make room for some alone time. At the end of the day it’s all worth it. Going back to hitting the books and working full time, we want to put an emphasis on the fact that we don’t always find it being dreadful. Perspective is everything – that’s why we take on a lot of things that we have passion for.  We are students who pay for our own education, we want to be able to afford a place and move out, we also need to pay our bills, we invest in our business, we’re growing our business, AND we want to travel. These are some of the reasons why we are motivated to do both. We’re determined to get things done, but to us it’s not how fast we get it done – more so how we get it done. We bring what we learn into our work to gain experience and to extend our knowledge. We bring our work to school because it’s fun and it’s related to what we’re learning. What’s even more fun is we have passion for what our end goal and to say we’re excited is an understatement. Ultimately, we do both because although we walk around tired and sometimes drained, we are happy and enjoy every minute of it. Gaining experience while developing our minds and skills at the same time? Yeah, we’re all for that. 

Moving to the next question, “How do we manage to do so much with such little sleep?” Well the answer to this isn’t too different from the one we answered above. Aside from taking our Arbonne energy boost, drinking coffee and tea, power naps and gym sessions for energy boost – it all comes down to the passion and love that goes behind everything we do. If we didn’t wake up loving our jobs we wouldn’t be working as hard. Sleep is important (hence, the naps), but we learn to function under short hours of sleep because sometimes waking up extra early or sleeping late to finish a project will get you one step closer to your end goal. Being able to motivate yourself is one thing to learn, but we find that sometimes what motivates you isn’t always enough. Motivating factors vary and sometimes don’t go a long way. For example, money. That’s a common one we hear and we witnessed first hand that, that only goes so far. On the contrary, if you do something you’re passionate about and wake up to something you love, it will make a difference. Try it and tell us if you wouldn’t sacrifice a little sleep for it?

We are are willing to compromise and make sacrifices for the things we love (and same goes for the people we love). So that is why we are more than okay to do all this work and function under such little sleep. This is also why we are careful when choosing when to collaborate and in choosing with who we want to partner with. We only ever want to give our best and our fullest attention. We work with those that we feel resonates us and our business. 

So we don’t kid when we say passion and love goes a long way for us.

Vancity Business Babes Anniversary Bash número DOS

So tonight we attended Vancity Business Babes Bash – hosted by Danielle Wiebe at SKYHANGAR in Pitt Meadows. Those who have never been, believe us when we say it is beautiful. It’s in the middle of nowhere and the building is quite big and spacious with high ceilings; it had a helicopter inside the building. It was pretty cool that Danielle decided to host her event there because not only did it have lots of parking, but we loved the idea of it being far from the city.

Anywho, moving to the good stuff tonight – feelings. Let’s quickly discuss how we felt today by starting off with you know when people say they feel inspired and motivated after hearing a speaker, watching a movie, reading an article, or being surrounded by a loved one?…well, that’s what tonight did to us.

The event consisted of several vendors and several entrepreneurs. We were both amazed at the amount of people that arrived from different cities just to attend and hear from those on the panel tonight. We had of course, Danielle speak about starting Vancity Business Babes (VCBB) and her accomplishments within the past 2 years, along with 3 bloggers which had recently started their business. They discussed their strenghts and weaknesses, and shared with us their story on how they got to where they are today. This was nice to hear because it was a reminder that not only do we struggle, but others do too throughout their journey of building a name for their brand or company.

You know, Kleyra and I are huge on surrounding ourselves with positive people and continuously learning from others to grow. That being said, it’s not always easy to do that in the business world. VCBB hosted an event tonight that allowed us to collaborate with businesses and take away awesome tips to keep in mind as we continue to grow as a business. One thing that was mentioned today that we really liked was that VCBB strives on collaboration and not competition. It’s quite an amazing experience to feel and know that the business women who came tonight helped empower and support other local businesses. Walking out those doors triggered us to want to push our limits once again and really just go home and get things done – so we did just that. Kleyra got her laptop and started brainstorming some more and I put my working boots on and got my head in the game. I started scheduling and asking myself, “now what is the next step?”

We both became super excited about moving forward with the new stuff we had in mind and actually started implementing a plan to reach out to businesses more and get them to want to work with us. We’ve got our working boots on and now there is no stopping us. We’re on a mission, just like every other business woman that we saw and met tonight.

Keep an eye for the next VCBB event because you may find us there!!!

Now go make things happen.

Daily Arbonne Intake

I’m sure you’ve seen our posts on Arbonne and so we wanted to share with you all our everyday essentials with some of the products we use.

To begin, we will start off with our daily Arbonne Protein shake. It comes in 2 flavours, vanilla and chocolate. We take this every day to start off our morning with high protein. We also like to make a shake before or after a workout. You can add banana and other fruits with it!

After breakfast, around noon time if not after noon time, we take an Energy Fizz stick. Our days start around 3:30am or 6:30am-7am, and for that reason we take this to give us a bit of kick to continue our day. With that in mind, this isn’t something you have to take daily; we just do it because of our early mornings to start work, school, homework, and house work; as you can see, we have long days. Aside from that, we take our energy fizz because also tastes yummy. It comes in two flavours and my personal favourite is pomegranate! Most of us don’t like taking things that leave us with a bad taste in out mouth, and trust us when we say this wont!


Moving forward, we use our awesome tasteless Fibre Boost! We use this when prepping dinner.

Have you ever loved anything tasteless? If not, try this. This allows you to add and mix it with anything while providing you with 12 grams of fibre. You can read more below.

Lastly, we drink Arbonnes Herbals tea. We drink one cup at least once a day. We give this to our mom as well – she loves it! It makes us feel cleansed, relax and good. Usually at night is always nice to have, as well as mid day. You can take it whenever, really.


….AND that’s a wrap!

Below is a picture on how you can use everything together – excluding the herbal tea, but including the Greens Balance. We do take the Green Balance, but not on a daily basis – not because we don’t like it. It is just as important to have your greens daily, but we simply do it by assuring we eat our greens. So we take it when we don’t eat enough throughout our day.


For more questions or information, you can go to our GoArbonne page or email us!


From us to you,

It’s a new year and we are excited!

Thinking about everything that we did in 2016…well naturally because we’re both woman who are emotional and busy, I think of the word “Panic.”Because of the amount of work projects we’ve been a part of, it has been one hectic year for us. Despite the success we’ve obtained and the goals we’ve achieved, our road to get there was difficult- but not impossible. Before we get started on how we felt this year, we want to say that we are happy and thankful for all the people we connected and partnered with. Throughout our journey, some of these people have motivated us even more to make movements that empower others, but mainly one another. Not only have we grown individually, but together as business partners we have stepped it up and also grown immensely. We embarked on a new approach for our business and really turned something from good to great.

Now with 2017 here, Kleyra and I are looking for nothing but the same thing – if not more. We stand by one another, we help and support one another, and we also challenge one another. We believe and hold ourselves accountable to a lot of things. Before Kleyra and I started Gopublikk we knew that going into it we had to prepare ourselves mentally; tell ourselves that anything is possible and that patience is a virtue. With those two things in mind, we both became capable of maintaining the same level of intensity and commitment to make things happen – even when it gets tough. Lets face it, overcoming adversity isn’t easy.

2016 was rough because we definitely were fighting against time. We realized that we needed to get so much done in less time. This was our fault. Being able to execute things accordingly resulted in sleepless nights, lots of shakes to replace meals, and long nights of scheduling. For this reason, we found ourselves trusting our instinct more then usual to get things done. Their had been many moments where we were just sitting at our dinner table contemplating how things were going to be completed with so many ideas and things in mind. With all things considered, we started feeling anxiety and feeling stressed because we both would get overwhelmed with our homework, other jobs, and our home life. Our life isn’t balanced. We can try and say we divide our time equally, but realistically we just know that as long as we make time for the things we want and the people we love; we’re more than okay. By making room and setting this as a priority for the two of us, it helped make things a lot easier and bareable. Love and support goes a long way. Anyway, last year we gathered our thoughts and process during the year and this year we did it before it started – we’re already on a roll!

Get ready for us Vancouver!
