Did you set up shop when days became warmer and you knew the demand would rise for thirst-quenching juice? That may have been the first time your inner entrepreneur appeared.

“I was always the kid with the lemonade stand.”

Over a decade later, Whelan took home the title of Canada’s most 100 Powerful Women in 2016, which was awarded to her from the Women’s Executive Network. She was also named Atlantic Business Magazine’s CEO of the year two years before that. She’s an amazing woman entrepreneur, balancing her family life and a growing million dollar empire.
