Q: Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone ‐ what are three things that you love about being your own boss? 

1. I OWN my days!

2. I’m a luxury and adventure travel addict – hence my brand “Freedom Junkie” and being my own boss allows me to go wherever I want, any time I want!

3. Being a mama, having my own biz allows me to focus on my 3 year old daughter anytime I wish to. One of my mentors always said: “Don’t miss out on the big moments in life.” I figured why miss the small ones either?

Q: Who was your mentor/inspiration to strike out on your own? 

My parents are both entrepreneurs and I think I got bitten by the same “bug”. They showed me the blueprint as I grew up, and I ran with it.

Q: What was the biggest challenge when you went from working for a company to working for yourself? 

I started out in Fashion as a buyer for some of the biggest retailers in Canada (The Bay, Holt’s and so on)..having your own business means no BOSS (woohooo!) but it also means no accountability – so you truly have to become a master at time management and say NO to anything that doesn’t serve your end goals.

Q: How do you stay motivated?  

I have a WHY that makes me CRY. 

Q: What are your tips for those who come up against blockades as an entrepreneur?  

How bad do you want it? Does your WHY make you CRY? The truth is you have to want success as bad as your body wants oxygen. Anything less adds up to, well..not much.

Q: When do you feel the most fulfilled?  

I truly feel the most fulfilled when I am able to inspire others to live the life of their dreams! I’m fired up when people OWN their lives, their loves and their gifts!

Q: What do you think is the biggest misconception people have about being an entrepreneur?  

The biggest misconception is that it’s easy and all fame-whoring and fun. Sorry for the real talk – but it’s hard work! You have to choose something you love. That’s the bottom line. Work your business around what you LOVE not the other way around, and it will always be a joy even when it gets tough.

Q: What are your “must‐haves” to keep your business going strong? 

A rockin’ VISION, a WHY that will make you CRY, and a kickin’ pair of badass HEELS!

Q: Looking back, is there anything you would approach differently? 

Not a single thing! I believe (as Steve Jobs so brilliantly said) “You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect the dots looking back.”, and every step – good or bad – has added up to where you now are. Where you are is exactly where you are supposed to be. Keep going.

Q: If your personality could be captured in pair of shoes, what would they be? 

Hmmmmm, there are too many amazing shoes to choose JUST ONE pair! I’m a combo of silly, sassy and badass….so I’d have to say the silver spiked Louboutin Pigalle pumps. Yep, that’s me. And a maybe a pair of biker boots too. It would be rude not to, right? 

Q: What does being “sexy” mean to you? 

Being SEXY is simply being yourself and owning it all – flaws, fabulousness..it’s all YOU! Live it up!

Q: Your top 3 Tips to Being Wealthy… in Heels?

1. Create a stream of residual PASSIVE income, it’s a must….especially if you like shoes!
2. Work your gifts every day..in heels of course!
3. Act like a LADY work like a BOSS. Heels make this an easy WIN.
