If you are an entrepreneur, what motivated you to start your own business?
For freedom. I wanted the flexibility to be with my kids when they needed me and when I wanted to be with them.
What does success mean to you?
Success is when “the blueprint of your life matches your current reality.” Ed Mylett
What is your mantra or favorite saying? (If it's a known quote, please let us know who said it first!)
Consistency is your currency – Renée Warren.
What failure taught you the most about life or business? What was the lesson?
I’ve had many lessons, but one of the most memorable was getting sued for wrongful dismissal. This changed everything about how I do business. I’ve always been a great leader and friend and having someone do this to me (and my team) was not only insulting, it made me see the holes in my business. I learned to fire FAST and hire slow after that, putting strict hiring and team practices in place to ensure we are all working in a healthy and fun environment.
What's your favorite book - fiction or non-fiction! - in the past year?
I’ve re-read The Big Leap and The Alchemist
If you could teach the world one five-minute lesson, what would it be?
I would teach the world how to discover your true self and follow your passion regardless what other people expect of you.
Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently when you were first starting out?
To stop caring what the haters think. It’s still an important lesson today. I realized I was doing things, and sharing content on social media because I thought my haters were reading it (maybe they were) and I wanted to prove to them I was important. The moment I started to ignore them ( and block them from my mind and my accounts) everything immediately got better– revenue and mental health.
What does women's empowerment look like to you in action?
More women CEOs, more women in positions of power, more women president’s/Prime Ministers, more women shouting louder and louder.
What would you tell 19-year-old YOU?
Stop trying so hard to make people like you and start doing things/work that YOU love to do!
What will 86-year-old you want you to know TODAY?
That if I spent my life pleasing others, it would make everyone BUT ME happy and content.
Does anyone call you by a nickname? What is it?
Congrats! You just met a Genie in a Bottle. You get three wishes. One can be worth $0-100, one is worth $100,000, and one is worth $100 million. What are your wishes?
$0-$100/day/each wish: Every child has access to quality food every day. $100,000 wish: I start a fund with other high-profile and successful women to help women in business. $100 million wish: No Canadian mother goes without the necessities and education needed to live a thriving life.
What is your favorite quote? (It can be yours or from someone that you look up to.)
