I wanted to express my appreciation for the opportunity to be part of the 2010-2011 Distinctive Women. Being included in this publication allowed me the opportunity to appear with so many fabulous women in Collier County.


The Launch Party created a venue to personally connect so many "Profiles" face to face and has generated new friendships and business relationships. Several members of the community look to your Publication as a reference guide and this too has allowed new ventures for me and my company.


I look forward to being included in this year's Distinctive Women as the window of opportunity opens with each Profile.


I wish you and your wonderful staff the best and will be available if you feel I may be of any assistance.


Make it an amazing day!




Kena Yoke,

President at Dax Enterprises

Exciting News!

Naples Social...

The excitement at our Naples launch party back in November was awesome! A number of women were asking if we could plan another evening where everyone could get together and network. This concept has been very well received with our Toronto women and we're happy to announce that we're planning our first Naples social which will take place this spring. To our Distinctive Women in Naples -- stay tuned!


Toronto Social -  February 8th
Our second Distinctive Women social will be held on February 8th, 2012. 


Festival of Trees

We're very proud to announce that our participation in the Festival of Trees raised $3,000.00 for the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County in Naples, FL! Thanks to all of our SW Florida DW participants for your generous contributions.


Vacationing in Naples

Now that the winter months are upon us, it is the perfect time to plan a holiday in Southwest Florida!


The Naples area offers beautiful, pristine, white, sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, arts, culture and entertainment as well as many, many more attractions. Nestled on the Gulf of Mexico, this magical town allows outdoor enthusiasts to spend days fishing or simply enjoying the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.


For those more interested in arts and culture, Naples offers many galleries, museums and historical attractions to visit.



Stay tuned for more exciting news and information from your Distinctive Women team...

Spotlighting Spirited Businesswomen  Distinctive Women Presents:


In memory of a long-time Naples resident and entrepreneur, Donna MacNiven, a heartfelt message from her daughter Tiffany Lehman.

It is with much sadness and distress that I announce the loss of Donna MacNiven. Donna was one of the founding members of Insurance Source of Naples. She was the backbone and life line in implementing the success of our agency. We lost Donna to a long struggle of Breast Cancer in November, 2011 and will forever be encouraged by her positive, uplifting attitude. She was my mother, my best friend and my mentor and I will continue to strive for the excellence she encouraged.


Thank you to all of those who have offered their condolences.
