With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?
To provide a high-quality product that will sustain a lifetime while providing great customer service!
What inspired you to start your business?
I’ve always had entrepreneurship in me and one day I dreamt of starting my own business. After having my daughter in 2020, she gave me the courage to finally start a small business of my own.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?
I often struggle with Imposter Syndrome. I question my work and if it’s worth it. I found out by doing it that it’s always worth it in the end!
What has been your biggest success as a maker?
All of my biggest successes thus far have been collaborations with other local small businesses.
Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
If you have a strong feeling of sharing something with the world, don’t question it and go with it! Starting a business can seem daunting at first but it’s so worth it and every small success is a big step towards making a difference. Let’s build our community and keep the small local businesses coming!
