It’s been a minute and I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far. Hard to believe that our last blog was two months ago! One of my goals for 2021 was to write a monthly blog but what can I say, life sometimes gets in the way. I made the call to take the month of June to rest, recharge and focus on other activities.

Hey there! Welcome to shopthecurvy.com! Thanks for stopping by!
Leading up to the website launch, I had a chat with ATB Financial for their “YouTube Live” show – a live video chat that’s available to their employees. We talked about what I’ve been up to and where I want to take the company. We also talked about the up’s and down’s of the crowdfunding campaign, and if I would do it again (maybe not in 2020, but would love to mentor other female entrepreneurs!).
