I’ve been a small business owner for a little over a decade and in that time I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with so many other small business owners both in Halifax and Pictou County.

When I moved to New Glasgow a little over two years ago I started searching for a group of like minded women and was so happy to find a Pictou County Women in Business group. They welcomed me with open arms and  I’ve  have the pleasure of meeting so many terrific ladies I wanted to share them with you in a small business spotlight.

I’m so happy to introduce the first Women in Business spotlight;  Jenny Velchev, she and her husband Svilen Velchev own Winmar in New Glasgow, NS

You can connect with Jenny and Svilen:

Welcome Jenny!

1)      What inspires you? 

The idea of continuous personal and professional growth inspires me.  In order to grow, learning new things has to be a daily activity.   Other women who are positive role models in the community inspire me also.  There are so many in Pictou County and when I interact with them, I get more ideas about how I can improve my life and business.

2)      Tell us about what your business offers?

We have a team of 10 employees who do all sorts of renovations, from exterior work like roofing and siding, windows and doors, to interior work like drywall, painting and carpentry work.  We respond to water and fire damage emergencies on a 24 hour basis and help people restore their homes after such losses.

3)      What is the best thing about being your own boss?

I find the most rewarding thing about being my own boss is that I get to directly influence what kind of values and atmosphere we want to have in our company.  As the boss, I can help create a positive workplace atmosphere that is motivating to our employees and that makes customers feel valued and appreciated, and a place that I feel great about working in every day.

4)      Tell me about some challenges you have faced?

In 6 years we have faced many challenges, big and small.  Building the loyal and skilled team we have today was one major challenge that we are proud to have accomplished.  The unpredictability of the volume of work that is inherent in our industry was another challenge that took some time to adjust to and plan for.  Looking back, I always feel proud that we were able to find a way through the difficult times and come out stronger.

5)      Thoughts on creating a work and life balance?

I recently read an article that has really helped me re-arrange my ideas about work/life balance, and it works.  The article said that for business owners, separating work and life is very hard, maybe impossible.  It pointed out that work/life integration might be a better way to look at things and to accept that they really can’t be separated.  It’s important to find a way to make your personal and professional lives flow together.  This idea has really changed the way I am approaching my days, and it has taken away the burden of trying to separate the two.

6)      What words of wisdom do you have for other women in business?

Taking care of yourself physically and mentally should be a priority so you have the energy and time to give to others, including your family, employees and customers.  If you are in shape and rested you will be much more productive in everything you put your mind to, and all your relationships will benefit from your well-being.  Being positive and happy is contagious.

  • Shallon - OMGosh! I love it. Totally unexpected. Thank you guys! I look at our photos all the time and love the moments you captured. Love you guys!

Surrounded by family and friends who came from all over this fabulous country of ours, Michelle and Bobby celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal in the am and a BBQ lunch in the afternoon at Trenton Park, Pictou County.

People hugged, people giggled and there was joy all around.

You could feel the love and respect they have for each other as well as the support from all their friends and family; thank you for including me and yes, Nanny R….I did get something to eat:)

Happy Anniversary!

Some super hot images….(literally & figuratively). We started the session in the unfinished 3rd floor of my new studio space complete with the exposed beams & the rough boards. Did I mention there is no air conditioning up there? Saying it was hot would be an understatement.

To cool off a bit, we moved out to the balcony and I was so hoping the neighbors wouldn’t hear us giggling like a couple of school girls out there. Note to self…..the shingles are hot, bring shoes outside next time.

We finished  her session with a few saucy images back inside where the sunlight streams in this perfect little ray of light.

Sexy, confident and oh so brave….thank for you, thank you, thank you.

Endless Gratitude.

So excited! We have a new home for our studio! Our space will be at the attic space above Healthy Selections in New Glasgow, NS. We have a gorgeous space on the top floor.

To celebrate we are having a fabulous special for boudoir and glamour photography!

Buy now and book later! It’s the perfect holiday gift for the woman who has everything, a unique gift for your husband for your wedding anniversary, a very liberating way to celebrate your 40th or just if you are wanting something special for yourself.

People always say “if I was 10lbs lighter”, “if I was 10 years younger”, “I will when I” (fill in the blanks).

Do something for you. NOW….you deserve it, you are beautiful and I want to show you how others see you.

Radiant, Sexy and Perfect….

Repeat that to yourself…..even if you think you have love handles (I mean really who  doesn’t?). It’s OK to have a few grey hairs (my gosh…when did that happen?). It’s OK….love yourself like others do.

Radiant, Sexy and Perfect…

Our new studio special is available for glamour and or boudoir sessions only. I’ll just ask if you are asking for boudoir sessions please be 24+. Why? Cause honestly if you are 20-23 I probably know your parents and I don’t want your Dad giving me the stink eye in the superstore. I’d love for you to come one in with your mom/sister and have an amazing glamour session together.

Elegant, Funny and oh so sweet.  The lovely Mrs. W came in for a session a while back and I was so happy she came in, I went to school with her kids and I’ve admired her for as long as I can remember.  She is kind, thoughtful and a fierce protector of all those she loves….and did I mention gorgeous?
