Ashley McCabe, 35 - Oly Events: Wedding and Event Design
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
I moved back to Oly (where I grew up) three years ago and have been completely blown away by the number of woman entrepreneurs that have worked tirelessly at revitalizing our community. I have developed relationships with many local, female small business owners that have turned their passion into their profession. I have had the opportunity to see "the hustle" they have undertaken reap amazing rewards and was inspired to turn my own passion into a successful business venture. Oly Events has been a work in progress for the past six months, when I found myself going through the transition of becoming a single mom of two small boys. I decided it was time for me to put my dreams at the forefront as an example to my children of working hard and not settling. I am an inherent planner, organizing events, both small and large. I have always wanted to own my own event planning business, but didn't have the confidence to put myself out there and make it happen. These life transitions I have gone through over the past year, instilled a new sense of self-reflection, self-worth and the belief that I could take this risk.
