There are business relationships, and then there’s your relationship with your business – and Anne Whelan, CEO of Seafair Capital will tell you that just like in romance, you can fall in, out, and back in love with it!
A Canadian entrepreneur, innovator, community and business leader. As the founder and CEO of the Seafair group, she has grown a small, family business into a thriving portfolio of small-and-medium-sized organizations. In addition to leading her group of companies, she is also a director of the Bank of Canada, and of CSA Group, a Canadian standards organization with global operations in testing, inspection, and certification. She has received many accolades for entrepreneurship and leadership at the national level, including being named to Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women by WXN in 2016 and Atlantic Business Magazine’s CEO of the Year in 2014.
“Running a business isn’t that different than a relationship, I’m sure all the listeners have fallen out of love with somebody at some point. That’s where you need to evaluate what you want out of the business and what will bring you fulfillment.”
In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, sponsored by Mastercard and Ceridian, Anne discusses the importance of staying true to what you love about your business, and balancing the other aspects alongside it.
