Episode 84: Mandy Balak

This week, I sat down with Mandy Balak, founder of It's Date Night and The Ace Class, with whom I have been working to bring fantastic events like Babes Who Brunch to Edmonton. From the time she had a lemonade stand, Mandy knew she wanted to be a CEO, but she didn't necessarily think she'd be CEO of her own company...now she runs two businesses from her home base in Calgary - one of which is quickly spreading across the country!
