As a woman growing up in the 21st century, it's been so amazing to see the kind of growth and empowerment we women have gone through. Although it does still happen, it's very rare now to see women bringing one another down, or letting jealous and ignorance get in the way of supporting one another.
In Calgary especially, it seems that we have an amazing community of up and coming lady bosses, all who regularly work hard to support and help one another, support themselves, and constantly come up with new and innovative ideas to make their work better. Since moving here, I've met so many amazing, inspiring women who constantly motivate me to work harder.
With the invention of social networking apps, like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. it makes it easier than ever to share your work and market yourself in 2017. One of my favourite pastimes is using these apps to find new local talent in Calgary. From self-taught make-up artists to professional nail technicians, from bottle services girls, local fashion designers with their own clothing lines, it's insane to see how much talent and potential the women of Calgary have to offer us.
If you're looking to get inspired, take a look through our lists and follow some of these amazing women on Instagram; you won't be disappointed.
