We’re excited Natalie will be joining our Boss Babe Pyjama Party panel this Saturday to talk about her experiences as a blogger, and the importance of proper representation of black women across brands and businesses. We know she’s going to be spilling some truth this weekend, but we just couldn’t wait to hear some of her story.
Founder and President of Black Space Winnipeg, Alexa Joy Potashnik has demonstrated a firm commitment to community development and social justice, influencing initiatives across Winnipeg that promotes diversity and inclusion for BIPOC communities.

This week we had the pleasure of interviewing Margaux about her entrepreneurial journey, the story behind her business, and her pro tips for creating your own boss babe style!
The holiday season is in full swing and with that comes the craziest, busiest, most expensive time of the year. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, but immediately after the holidays is the start of a new year. If 2019 is going to be your year (it is, we can feel it!) then you need to have your shit together so you can crush all the goals and do all the things boss babe style. Making sure you have a plan for your business during and after the holidays will ensure that you’ll have time to enjoy the season, and not run around frantically like one of Santa’s elves on Christmas Eve. This week we are sharing some tips and tricks to help you prepare your biz for the holidays.
As female entrepreneurs, we have a lot of pressure on our shoulders. Many of us feel like we have to live up to high expectations, ones that are set by others and by ourselves. As much as we love putting on our boss babe hat and hustling for our brand, behind each of our brands is a unique person. This week on the blog we are getting real, like really real, and discussing the in’s and out’s of vulnerability in business.
Become part of a community of Winnipeg women who are as passionate about the businesses they’re building as they are about building genuine relationships with one another. We have the tools and motivation you need to keep pushing towards your business goals and to support your personal development.
We’re entrepreneurs. We’re learners. We’re friends.
