Small Business Week: Merle Norman in Kindersley

BDC Small Business Week is a national celebration of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has been organizing Small Business Week since 1979. It takes place every year during the third full week of October. We thought, what better way to celebrate then to chat with some of the wonderful small business owners from the area!

Why did you decide to run a Merle Norman?

I actually had a couple reasons for purchasing the local Merle Norman Cosmetics franchise. After 30+ years of being an accountant in public practice, I thought it would be fun to run my own business. Secondly, I wanted to provide a service in our community to support our local economy.

What are some of the perks and challenges that face small business owners in today’s landscape?

‘Being your own boss’ is both a perk and a challenge!! Being able to have access to products and services you love is definitely a perk . The biggest challenges I’ve experienced are the ‘ebbs and flows’ of the economy, staffing, and of course managing through a pandemic!

If you could give one piece of advice to someone hoping to start their own business, what would it be?

My one piece of advice would be to be prepared to dedicate a significant amount of your time to your venture. In my humble opinion, your ‘presence’ in your business is of upmost importance to it’s success!
