In my last post I mentioned that one of the things I learned in 2017 is that as an educator, I’m going to need multiple streams of income if I’m going to do more than just survive. In an effort to begin sourcing these multiple streams of income I thought maybe I’d try out this business idea I had.
While on Christmas Break I had the opportunity to chat with my father-in-law about my idea. You see, not only is he a very sweet man, he happens to be a very successful business man. At his urging, when I returned home and I began doing some research on my idea. I’m certain I sat in front of my computer for two days just fascinated and taking notes on all the information I found.
Then I came across a website, http://www.womensbusinesscentre.org. This site had a wealth of information to help women. They encourage women who are in business or thinking about starting a business to come in and take advantage of all the resources they have available.
Among the resources they offer are several on-site training classes and seminars to help women get familiar with the many aspects of running a business. To get myself familiar with their resources I signed up and attended an Introduction to the Women’s Business Centre class. I had no idea what I was in for!
In that hour long course, not only did I learn a ton about starting a business, I met some incredible women who were in various stages of their business. I was very proud to learn from several, young female entrepreneurs who’d simply found something they enjoyed and took a chance on turning their passion into a business.
I so admired these women for their vision and courage. The hour long session wasn’t enough time to get into their back-stories but from the little I was able to get I was totally inspired. So here are just a few of the businesses I had the opportunity to get to know that night…
