Loreen Husband is a Manitoba ELEVATE client and she operates “Simple Fare by Loreen” – a catering business that sells ready-to-eat meals.
Loreen’s business is slowly growing through social media marketing and online sales – skills she has learned while participating in the ELEVATE program.
Loreen has learned that entrepreneurship is hard work and requires a lot of dedication. She wishes she started this business 5 years earlier. Her advice to other entrepreneurs with disabilities is “don’t wait until you are retired to start!”
Loreen utilized the mentorship, living allowance and travel reimbursement supports offered by Community Futures ELEVATE program and hopes to continue working long enough to develop her succession plan.
