TOPIC // In Conversation with Courtney Watkins
In an intimate and casual interview with Courtney Watkins, will share her story of fashion, and
founding Mine&Yours luxury resale boutique.
Courtney Watkins is the co-founder of Mine & Yours, the leading luxury resale boutique in
Vancouver. Her career in fashion started off in Los Angeles while she attended the Fashion Institute
of Design and Merchandising. She then worked as a celebrity stylist and a trend forecaster before
moving back to Vancouver and taking over her family business which was a cedar shake and
shingle mill. After a couple years managing the mill her thirst for entrepreneurship led her to meet
her business partner Jigme and they opened Mine & Yours. As the Co-Founder at Mine & Yours,
Courtney gets to combine her love of fashion and business everyday!
If you’re a female entrepreneur, have a side hustle, or you're thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and connections.
What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you advice to fix it but rather they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.
SOME RULES we’d like to point out.
1) Tickets are $23 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only – we don’t want to be the door biatch that makes you pay $20 on the night if you’re not a member or turn you away. For us, we just want to make sure that it’s just fair on everybody. So please only select that ticket if you are a paying League Member – if you’re not then you can join here, or just purchase a ticket. http://www.leagueofextraordinarywomen.com.au/join-us/
2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and last minute decide they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it - we want to meet you!
3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and we use the word “connecting” and that’s because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space.
