In this podcast we are so excited to introduce an incredible resource by Community Futures Fraser Fort George. Community Futures’ started an exciting new initiative last year called LEAP for Women in Business. LEAP is an acronym for Leadership & Entrepreneur Accelerator Program 


This program was designed to encourage women to grow and achieve in their career and business through targeted workshops and network opportunities. The idea is to take a leap forward whether you have just an idea for business, whether you are ready to start a business or if you want to take your business to the next level!


Join us as we speak to Mary Mytting and Susan Stearns of Community Futures as they share their passion for their community, the Leap program and the impact they are creating locally and beyond.


We loved hearing about our fellow entrepreneurs up north and we think you will too!
