Karen Milde, Reframe Marketing, Vancouver, BC, CYBF Mentor
As an entrepreneur, I am exceptionally lucky to live and work in a rapidly growing first-world country like Canada. We are privileged with access to a wide range of public programs and funding to support entrepreneurs at various stages of their business. Boasting one of the best educational systems in the world, Canada also provides plenty of government-funded education opportunities for entrepreneurs. This is truly the place to reach your professional goals and shape your future.
In this technology-driving society, we have easy access to the Internet for accelerated learning through blogs, articles, and videos. Information is literally available at our finger tips. It has never been easier to expand our businesses globally and exchange ideas with like-minded individuals all over the world. With this expanding globalization of information, we are able to learn new ways and materialize innovative ideas to improve our services as well as our community.
Among many important lessons I have learned through my experiences as an entrepreneur, the most important one is that an entrepreneur’s journey consists of ongoing learning. Without constant improvement, businesses will be left behind in this fast-paced world. Keeping in mind that the majority of the world can only dream of the opportunities we have here in Canada, I am thankful every day for what I have and I continually embrace change through learning.
