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 start Avenue Fashions?
I decided to start my business after I had my first child. I wanted to have the flexibility to work as much as I wanted, yet be able to be home with my children when I needed to. As a young girl I used to dream that one day I would own my own clothing store, so when the opportunity came I jumped at it.
What are some of the perks and challenges for small business owners in today’s landscape?
Owning your own business comes with a lot of perks but to get those perks you have to be willing to put in the hard work to build your business in the beginning.
If you could give one piece of advice to someone hoping to start their own business, what would it be?
Finding the fine line between business, work, home, and raising your family is quite a task but once you’ve it figured out, it works, especially for me.
