Drizzle Honey Aja Horsley, Owner & Founder What inspired you to start this business? Honey is a complex and precious gift from honey bees.

Bamboo Ballroom Stacey Boruk, Owner What inspired you to start this business? I have always loved fashion, and when I started my business 12 years ago there were very few boutiques or shops (big and small) for women to find clothing with an edge or unique on-trend pieces.

jools & joplin Sarah and Kristy, Co-Owners What inspired you to start this business? Sarah: I started my career in jewelry design at the Alberta Diamond Exchange.
