Hi, I’m Allison. Nice To Meet You.

Firstly, amazing. Starting a small business and doing all the things takes courage, a crazy amount of hard work and a strong vision (and a lot of coffee). Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, we want to help you grow to the next level, support you when you need it most and show the rest of Canada & the world what you have to offer.

So yes, I called this a directory, but it’s so much more than that. It’s more of a shopping platform and SEO engine to drive business to your business. It is also a place for you to learn, build, share & support your business and other women-owned businesses in our community.

If this sounds like a place you’d like to hangout. Scroll down to find out more!

We’re so much more than just an online directory

We’re Your Second Brain.
