I am beyond proud, excited and honored to make this announcement today. It is truly humbling and if I am to be honest, probably one of the most momentous milestones of my career.
As Canada’s only Chief Inspiration Officer for Entrepreneur Barbie®, I join the company of some remarkable trailblazing women representing Entrepreneur Barbie in the US – read this http://mashable.com/2014/06/18/entrepreneur-barbie-inspiration-tips/. As an entrepreneur since the age of 24 (now starting my fourth entrepreneurial venture), having written a book on female entrepreneurship, as a keynote speaker on entrepreneurship, a life and business coach for female entrepreneurs, and having made it my life’s mission to inspire others to take the dive into passion, this feels like my calling.
What I am most excited about, is the first-ever Barbie™ Business Bursary program – the search for Canada’s Next Young Entrepreneur, with Mattel funding girls’ big dreams. I will sit on a panel of judges helping award the Mattel bursary money to 3 fabulous, young entrepreneurial girls with great vision and spirit.
