Violeta from Art VM Studio de Céramique on International Women's Day
How long have you been in business?
After finishing my specialized studies in art ceramics in Bulgaria, it was love at first sight with this profession. It was an opportunity to create my own job 20 years ago. Here in Canada, I still wanted to get into the business world. Based on my skills, my expertise and my knowledge in management, I launched Art VM Ceramic Studio in May 2015.
What was the trigger for starting your business?
The trigger was the passion that animated me and that I wanted to share. When I joined the certificate program at HEC, my business idea was clear: I wanted to start a 3-in-1 studio, including a boutique, a workshop and a mini-school in the field of ceramic art.
What motivates you to wake up every day?
The fact, that I love my job!
If there is a sentence that defines you, what would it be?
Make things happen!
What defines you / characterizes you as a woman?
The connection between my intuition and my analytical mind.
Who is your model / inspiration, and why?
People who do what they love and love what they do.
