As a woman and entrepreneur, starting a business is a unique challenge. But for me, it was also an opportunity to challenge the status quo and make a positive impact in the eyewear industry. I founded Sense Eyewear with a vision to create stylish and sustainable eyewear that empowers people to express their individuality. And while it hasn't always been easy, my journey has been incredibly rewarding.
Growing up, I witnessed firsthand the gender inequality that exists in our society. Women are often overlooked and undervalued, both in the workplace and in everyday life. But I refused to let this hold me back. I pursued my passion for eyewear and started Sense Eyewear, determined to prove that women can succeed in business.
Throughout my journey, I've faced many challenges. From navigating the male-dominated business world to securing funding and building a team, there have been many obstacles to overcome. But I've never let these challenges discourage me. Instead, I've used them as fuel to drive my passion and build a better future for myself and others.
One of the most important lessons I've learned is the importance of supporting other women. In Vancouver's entrepreneurial community, there are many incredible women who are breaking barriers and making their mark. By supporting each other and lifting each other up, we can create a more equal and inclusive business world.
At Sense Eyewear, we're committed to promoting feminism and equality in everything we do. From our diverse and inclusive team to our sustainable and ethically sourced materials, we're proud to be a business that supports women and empowers them to succeed.
Starting a business as a woman is never easy, but it's also one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. By pursuing your passion and never giving up, you can create a better future for yourself and for others. So to all the women out there who are dreaming of starting their own businesses, I say go for it! The world needs more female entrepreneurs and the sky is the limit for what we can achieve.
