Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Julie Melanie Ruiz-Tagle, Founder of Enviro Bag Evolution, located in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I handmade storage bags for wheelchairs, scooters, and walkers.

Tell us about yourself

I am a disabled woman and use a scooter for mobility, by the need for storage on my scooter that my bags were made. What motivates me to keep going is the fact that disabled people don’t have much room for storage on their devices, and if I can help one person, it’s all worth it.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

When customers come back to purchase other bags for friends and family.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

For me personally is technology. When I need to send pictures, sign a document and send it back, etc. I am not technology inclined, but I do my best.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. To have faith in your product.
  2. To be persistent.
  3. To never give up.

Where can people find you and your business?
