Embracing Transparency with Connie Lo and Laura Burget – January 7, 2021

Thrive Podcast - Startup Canada

Business

Being constantly bombarded with the success stories and “highlight reels” of the world’s leading entrepreneurs can take its toll on a founder’s sense of self worth – leading to feelings of incompetence and, often, full blown imposter syndrome. Connie Lo and Laura Burget, Co-Founders of Three Ships Beauty, believe each day as an entrepreneur is about incremental changes and realistic advancements.   Connie Lo is passionate about wellness, life design, and women empowerment. Laura Burget’s interest in entrepreneurship began when she was 9-years old, selling handmade crafts and jewelry in her elementary school.  Connie and Laura are the co-founders of Three Ships, which is a natural and vegan skincare company on a mission to make clean beauty accessible for all women. They bootstrapped their business in 2017 with just $4,000 in savings, starting by hand making products in her kitchen. Fast forward to today, and Three Ships is now carried in +400 retailers across North America, and will be launching into Target in January. They’ve been featured on Dragons Den, and won RBC’s 2020 Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub Micro-Business Award.  “Many could-be founders deal with ‘analysis paralysis’ – this belief that everything needs to be perfect before you launch. This leads to too many people never pursuing their dreams.” On this week’s THRIVE Podcast, sponsored by the Business Development Bank of Canada and Scotiabank, Connie and Laura discuss the do’s and don’ts of Co-Founder relationships, the importance of transparency with customers, and their triumphs over imposter syndrome.
