A single mom and owner of a thriving business, Pahtayken still finds time in her busy schedule to tutor and mentor native Aboriginal women who want to follow their own dreams and grow a business. She says helping them has been enormously satisfying. After attending college, she worked in a number of well-known spas perfecting her craft until she decided to open a studio of her own. She admits her own journey wasn’t always easy, but she always believed.
“Some of the hardships with becoming an entrepreneur was learning to take risks. No matter how difficult or scary it seemed financially I always thought “ It will be okay” or “It will be fine” They’re still my sayings to this day,” says Pahtayken.
