There haven’t  been too many people who would think about building an empire out of luxury yarn. But that’s exactly what Shelley Brander has done. Seeing a gap in her local market, she backed away from a successful marketing organization she ran with her husband to pursue her passion – and boy has it paid off.

Shelley has 3 kids and 2 successful companies. We try to get to the core of what fuels her parenting and business acumen. Most of it boils down to empathy, passion, and coffee! Find out how she gives back to the community, why you should get an accountant, and what course you can take to further your career.
