Meet Carrie Arsenault ELEVATE client from Gimli, Manitoba. Carrie is the owner / operator of “Sugar Me Cookie Boutique” offering baked desserts, treats and even dessert buffets using family recipes passed down from generation to generation.
Carrie started baking as a young girl with her mom and has always loved it. She is proud of the quality she can offer because everything she makes is from scratch with fresh ingredients. She chose the entrepreneurial path because it allowed her to adjust to her physical abilities.
Her sage advice to other entrepreneurs with disabilities who are considering starting their business is: “with each challenge, comes great rewards. Ask for help when you need it. Give yourself credit for all the small achievements!”
Carrie has had to overcome many of her fears and is continually learning better ways of communicating to her staff and the public. As well, ELEVATE has provided her the opportunity to learn many new accounting and management skills.
What’s next for Carrie? She is working on getting her products to a distributor, incorporating her business and continuing to build a product that is exceptional!
