French-Canadian Nadia Fleury's entrepreneurial journey began in January 2012 when she took the unbeaten path and quit her high-paying job to fulfill her dream of owning a skincare business.
Nadia knew she could accomplish this due to her unique skill at seeing beyond the tangible. Like a composer who writes a symphony, she converts abstract thoughts into deliverable assets, allowing her to foster ideas from concept all the way to implementation.
But growing a skincare company first required funds—funds that she didn't have. After years of financial and emotional challenges, Nadia came out of hiding and invested in herself through personal development programs. The investment proved well-worth it as she was given the opportunity to meet many extraordinary coaches, mentors and same-minded entrepreneurs.
In the process, she learned how to discern what she wanted in life and what she would no longer accept. She recognized the power of collaboration.
