If you haven’t read the story behind Re-Fashion Vancouver (go read it now) you might not know that the event all started because of a girl and her closet. That’s nothing unusual – but turning it into a community event certainly is. Being an entrepreneur is a tough road to travel on, and sometimes even tougher when you’re a young woman. That’s why organizations that help foster and nurture young enterprising women are so important in our community – they help bring great ideas like Re-Fashion Vancouver to light.
We’re so excited to share Young Women in Business (more commonly known as YWiB) with our Re-Fashionistas. YWiB holds great networking events and seminars, and helps provide ladies with dreams the tools that they need to make those dreams a reality; so you can go from staring at your closet wondering how on earth you’re going to clear out your clothes, to turning it into an event that more than a thousand people take part in. Pretty cool, huh?
Check out the interview they did with Re-Fashion Vancouver co-founder Victoria – and get a little glimpse into the life of a female entrepreneur.
