SHOW NOTES

This is the second of three mini episodes of our chat with Karla Briones, an award-winning Mexican-Canadian serial entrepreneur and a mom of two kids, with a passion for helping others succeed in their business journey.

She uses over a decade of experience running multiple businesses to mentor, coach and help new immigrants become successful entrepreneurs in Canada. She works with founders through her company, Karla Briones Consulting and Invest Ottawa's advisory programming and gives back to her community through organizations including Futurpreneur Canada and WorldSkills.

In our second episode with Karla, we talk about how becoming a parent became a catalyst for her starting her entrepreneurial journey, the breakdown she experienced a few years into running two businesses and having two kids and what she learned along the way.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT: 

  • What her business schedule looked like at the beginning of becoming a new mom
  • Transitioning out of the 'failure is not an option' mindset as a newcomer to Canada
  • When she knew she had to step away from her business and how she did it
  • Getting comfortable with releasing control and asking for help
  • What she continues to do to look after herself
