Canada's Most Fab-U-Bliss Event Only Two Weeks Away

Sex and the City comes to Calgary with the original Carrie Bradshaw and an assortment of star-studded guests Monday, October 5

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2009) - Glinda Girls™ Inc., a Calgary-based event producer and e-boutique of beauty and lifestyle brands and services, is excited to announce that in just two short weeks The Business of Bliss event makes its exciting debut at the TELUS Convention Centre, bringing a little sexy, a little beauty and a whole lot of Oprah to our city. This highly-anticipated, much talked about event is a full-day inspirational speakers' series designed to inspire individuals to live their passion and create a life they love!

Featured at this "Fab-U-Bliss" event will be none other than Sex and the City Author Candace Bushnell; regular Oprah Winfrey celebrity guest Peter Walsh; New York Times best-selling author and columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine, Martha Beck; Brilliance Specialist and psychotherapist Moreah Ragusa; and Ben Barry, founder of the Ben Barry Agency that casts real beauty models - just to name a few.

"This event will be unlike anything Calgary or any other Canadian city has ever seen and experienced," said Kari Dunlop, founder of Glinda Girls. "This isn't going to be one of those sugar high events where you go for the day, get all hyped up and then that high is gone a day or two later. Inspiration comes from within and this event is going to give people the ability to be able to continually inspire themselves, and the tools to overcome their personal roadblocks on their own road to success - not to mention get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some internationally acclaimed celebrities in person. And given the ripples many of us face because of the recent economic upheaval, fear rises to hold us back. Many find themselves in transition, or facing it - the upside of this downside is that now is the opportunity to live your life by design, not by default."

Highlights of the day will include three exclusive VIP events; an exciting Pitchfest where five finalists present their big business idea to a panel of celebrity judges-such as Maureen Kelly, Danielle LaPorte and Sarah Happ-for a chance win a $30,000 Business Booster Prize Package and become the next Glinda Girl; a fashion show produced by Bankers Hall and The CORE; and much more!
