These B-Schoolers made their
dream business a reality.
Today, I make double the salary I earned when I was employed full time by someone else, only 2.5 years ago. Now I have a flexible schedule which means I have time to cook healthy, whole foods meals every day and take good care of my puppy, Poppy. Instead of two weeks holiday I take up to 3 months off every year – and my partner and I try for one unplugged weekend trip every month to a nearby west coast island. Better yet, I’m taking small steps daily to get where I want to go – which is more painting, more creativity and truly being of service to people and communities I care about. I wasn’t sure before B-School if I could be successful enough as an artist to have kids. I want to start a family in the next 3 years. Thanks to the heart-centred philosophy and tough business love in B-School, my partner and I will be in a great place financially when the time comes to adopt or do in vitro. As two female parents, I worry about being financially stable enough to thrive during that process.
We’re not at the finish line yet (my business is still growing and mastering cash flow is a learning curve in itself) but I feel confident that we are heading in the right direction. Thank you Marie!
