Wizards of Wealth Money Day

May 5, 2018  Five Star Ranch  10am - 3pm

As parents we want the best for our kids. We know that every child deserves a life of abundance. The key is to start teaching powerful, simple, money habits as early as possible. My girls started at 2 and 4 years old. Studies show that our children’s money habits are formed by the age of 7.

Your family will learn:
• The different roles of money and how to create healthy money habits
• The power of giving and discovering causes that will inspire you and your kids
• To empower your kids to start making simple financial decisions
• Simple W.O.W. Money System
• Simple system for kids to start to earn their own money

The Mom Show


May 12, 2018  Milton Sports Centre

Famiizuu and Family Matters Magazine Milton have created this event with the MOMS in mind! This one is for ones who work tirelessly every day and put themselves last. It’s for those of you who are craving an afternoon away from the family. We invite you to come out, grab a coffee in hand, and stroll, chat and check out the stuff you love. Hairstylists, spas, makeup artists, dance studios, wine tasting, speaker, mini-workshops, mani/pedis, hmmmm, maybe even some pole dancing?? It’s all waiting for you! Now, let’s face it, even the moms who understand time to themselves is important, may not be able to come sans enfants! It’s totally ok to bring the little ones! We have entertainment for them too! Moms shopping for moms, daughters shopping for moms, moms shopping for themselves and because the event is strategically scheduled the day before MOTHER'S DAY, we are certain the Dads will be out doing some last minute shopping!
