This month I was honored with the #55 spot on Canada’s Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs list by Canadian Business, Profit and Chatelaine Magazines. (Before I continue, my sincerest thanks to each of you for this incredible honor!)
As I sit and reflect upon my time as an entrepreneur, I feel overwhelmingly grateful and moved by the opportunities that life has presented me.
Since starting my business in 2009, I have been recognized as a Top 40 Digital Marketing Strategist by the Online Marketing Institute, an Expert in Affiliate Marketing by the New York Times, won multiple awards for our clients and team in business and performance (affiliate) marketing, and most recently, led our team to win Company of the Year in the province of British Columbia through Small Business BC.
Although I believe many of these accolades contributed to the honor of being ranked as a Top 100 Female Entrepreneur in Canada (coupled with our 6000% growth over the past five years), I feel there are deeper, more meaningful pieces that have contributed to my personal success that I’d like to share, and hope will be helpful for you too.
