Strategic Advisors

Building and running a business as a solopreneur is challenging on many levels, however the main challenge is not having access to like-minded people with deep business experience to bounce ideas off or brainstorm future strategies. I am so fortunate to have three world-class strategic advisors to call on for advice, help and input when I need it, and I wanted to honour these stellar individuals by sharing them with you here. No matter what stage of business you’re in as an entrepreneur, having the best strategic advisors is critical to continued success. Thank you for being my sounding boards Tiffani, Nishan and Stanimira!
