Ruby Cole may only be part way through the Entrepreneurs with Disabilities program, but she’s already reaping its benefits.
As the owner of The Maby Studio, an event design and rental shop in Sylvan Lake, AB, Ruby struggled to access capital and funding for her business, and battled self-doubt and the fear of failure.
Ruby said that her first training course in the program made her feel empowered and uplifted.
“I learned that it is okay to be detail oriented and care,” she said. “It is what will make us excellent. I got great ideas on how to approach customer service and the importance of quality control.”
Working within a coaching program set up by Community Futures Central Alberta, Ruby is excited to continue with the program.
