What do you think it takes to be a successful female entrepreneur?
Self-motivation, optimism, risk taking, making connections and supporting other women.
What does being a Canadian Business Chicks mean to you?
Supporting local businesses and building a strong community of amazingly talented women. When you support local you directly support a person, their family, the local economy and community. In return, you get completely unique and wonderful services and products made with love and quality. All in all, it just feels good!
What words of wisdom would you share with women starting a business?
As Nike keeps saying “just do it”. You'll never know until you try. Cliché? Definitely but so true! Don’t be afraid to love other people's work and make connections with them – you never know where you might end up.
