S3 E18 Creating Representation and Building a Business from Scratch with Jenn Harper


In this episode of the Inspire Podcast Bart interviews the CEO and Founder of Cheekbone Beauty, an Indigenous-owned and founded cosmetics brand. Despite having no background in the beauty industry, Jenn had a vision to create a brand that gave representation to Indigenous girls and started the business from scratch in 2016. As she built her business she worked hard to invest in and give back to her community, and today has donated more than $150,000 to a variety of causes. Jenn tells Bart about how her own personal journey to overcome substance abuse and to authentically represent her Indigenous identity fuelled and shaped her entrepreneurial spirit. Her story has lessons for anyone with the dream to start something from scratch, and anyone who wants to support voices who are underrepresented in the world today.
