From her arrival in Canada as a child, not speaking a word of English, through many stress-filled years of employment in other fields, to recognizing her true passion and putting in the countless hours of education and work to finally realize her dream, Emilia Wisniewski’s story is one of courage, perseverance, and commitment that we know you will find as inspiring as it is informative.
Join us for our chat with Em as she recounts her fascinating journey along the road to starting and running her remarkably successful Studio 1NINE1 design business. (And yes, the photo above was taken in our home, by my talented hubby Walker!).
I've been personally inspired by Em's success and work ethic. We have been dear friends and travelled to Italy together in the late 2000's so I've known her a while. It's been such a delight to see her leave her corporate 9 to 5 and go full-on into entrepreneurship. It's pretty scary to do this but incredibly rewarding.
Most of my friends and colleagues are entrepreneurs and success nothing to do with luck and everything to do with hard work - Emilia is the perfect example of someone who works their ass off! Be sure to check out the resources section and watch some of Em's videos on House & Home, the makeovers are incredible!
