I am a luxury clothing designer here in Kelowna. After training as a fashion design seamstress in Hamburg Germany, I have recently launched my bridal and formal wear label Red Velvet Bridal Design. This label is exclusively designed, made and sold at our studio boutique right here in Kelowna. This is to ensure quality and the exclusive nature of our designs as well as provide a custom fit to every costumer. I love the buy local mentality in Kelowna, and as a formal clothing designer I know that everything looks better fitted to each individual body and style. I love helping people look their best and making them happy. During my training my heart was also captured by the need to stop the atrocity of the fast fashion industry. This I believe can only be done by a combination of educating the public of its effect, providing an alternative product, and helping the people trapped in this injustice receive the training and opportunity to earn a fair and reliable income. The core of my label is to strive to make a difference in my community and the world around me. I am excited to be an active member of the Kelowna business community. Feel free to stop by my boutique anytime.

About Real Estate Investment Coaching: Hi, I’m Julie Hoffman and I’ve led such an incredibly blessed life… I’m so grateful and I’d like to share a bit of it with you. Not too long ago I was just getting started with Real Estate Investment Coaching. I had already been through a lot… I wasn’t sure I could really lead someone else to success as I was already so busy just trying to move forward with all my own deals. But then something happened that changed everything for me. I ended up dealing with a couple in Saskatchewan who were in a very tough situation. They needed a solution and they needed it quick (which normally would have made them perfect people for me to buy from). They had bought high in 2007 (like a lot of us) and life had suddenly changed which meant getting rid of their property. Their big problem being they DID NOT want to sell and lose money. They also did not want to be landlords. And I did not want to take over a property in Saskatchewan – I just like being closer to my deals…. I’m funny that way. That’s when an idea popped in my head and I suggested I coach them to sell their house. I told them what I could do, what it would cost, and how I envisioned it would hopefully all turn out. You see all they needed was time and with my coaching I was able to not only give them time, but we worked together to find a solution. And it worked Great! And I was hooked. I knew there had to be others who wanted the same help. Help selling without losing money, help buying without having to take a lot of risk and help for all the confusing steps along the way. As I mentioned the last recession was hard on a lot of people and as I was heavily invested in Real Estate at the time, I too went through some tough times. During that time, I wondered “Why is this happening to me? What did I do to deserve what looked like potential bankruptcies and foreclosures?!?” Those were very dark times. I have since realized I needed to go through those Struggles as part of my journey as a coach. To survive, I found creative ways to make it as a matter of necessity and these creative ways became tools in my coaching tool belt. I appreciate what I went through. Because now I can help people who think they have reached a dead end, a dead end I was at not too long ago. How I Can Help You Well, in my One on One Coaching our goal will be to get you through a successful and profitable deal as a Real Estate investor. And to make sure it works, I’m right there with you all the way through it. Now I could just give you one of my already profitable deals and call it good, but I’d rather teach you to fish on your own so you can continue to find more deals and continue to profit going forward. www.StreetSmartDiva.com
