.As the President of Diet Delivery Canada Inc., Heather Wilgar is putting a convenient spin on the way people can achieve their health and fitness goals.
: There are several things that inspire me, but one thing is belief in myself!
: This is a tricky one, I would like to think that I make my own rules up as I go along, although there have been several rules that I have had to follow closely to get me where I am today.Therefore, I follow the rules enough to keep me under the radar, but break free whenever no one is watching!!DiVA
: Is there a conventional perception of women you try to defy?Heather
: I like to think that conventional perceptions of women are no longer as rampant, and therefore defiance no longer required.I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by a supportive network, including my father who instilled in me at a very young age that I could do anything I set my mind to! DiVA
: What makes your female friendships special or unique?Heather
: Female friendships are so special to me because those close to me know what I am trying to say with just an expression on my face, or tone in my voice.They are always willing to listen, and offer advice where warranted, and know when to keep their opinions to themselves when it is required.My mom and sister are my two closest female friends.DiVA
: What would be your "dream" girls night or adventure?Heather
: A dream girl's night, hmmmm...Well, dinner downtown, then drinks at a Jazz Bar, before hitting a nightclub to dance into the wee hours!DiVA
: What does the term "diva" mean to you?Heather
: A diva to me is a woman of strength, who marches to the beat of her
own drum.Someone who knows who she
is, and is comfortable with herself.Someone that excels at hard work, and won't back down from a challenge.DiVA
: What do you do to live a healthy lifestyle?Heather
: In addition to eating according to the Zone Principles, I also practice Pilates, and Tae-bo, and when the weather co-operates I enjoy rollerblading, and biking.DiVA
: As a new business owner, you are obviously very busy; how do you find balance?Heather
: I find balance through my family who I am very close to, and I always have something my boyfriend said to me in the back of my head.When things with DietDelivery first started getting hectic he
said that I need to take a little bit of time each day to be with, and appreciate my loved ones.I try to take that time with him everyday, where I don't think about work, I just enjoy being with him.DiVA
: Advice to women who have a business idea & want to make it happen?Heather
: My advice to anyone that wants to start their own business is research, plan, and prepare.
