Event Description:

"This 23-year-old CEO of a gummy bear company will change the way you think about candy" 
-Gina Florio, Hello Giggles

The sugar free success of a million dollar confectionery company and social community
When you own your idea and have confidence in your capability to make it happen... your wildest reality materializes. Tara Bosch, founder of SmartSweets has seen supersonic growth since her first bag of sugar-free candy hit shelves just a few years ago. Now she's here to chat with WOW… sharing why she believes confidence in your ability to execute is everything and is the key to growing an idea into a business. She also knows how hard it can be to have confidence when you’re walking into the unknown. You don't have to have it all figured out - but you do have to continue taking steps forward in order to figure it out, embracing the fear and the uncertainty that comes with that. Once your idea "takes off", you have a nano-second to seize every opportunity and capitalize on the growth that you are experiencing. Knowing what your end goal is and working backward on executing against that will allow you to stay in control and steer your growth in the direction you envision. The world is yours for the taking!

Join the Women of Whistler for a rare glimpse into a progressive and fresh entrepreneurial mind poised to become a global leader in innovating confectionery products that kick sugar.
Key takeaways from Tara:

  • Start, and don't stop
  • Ask "stupid" questions and surround yourself with knowledge
  • Set your end goal and execute against it

"Two months after Bosch began recipe testing, she dropped out of college, and in less than a year, she had brought the idea of innovating candy that kicks sugar into national retailers in Canada." 
-Vivienne Decker, Forbes

Hey I'm Tara, the founder of SmartSweets. I started SmartSweets after forming an unhealthy relationship with food and seeing the negative effects sugar has on our health. After spending months recipe testing in my kitchen with a gummy bear mould from Amazon, I innovated the first candy you can feel good about enjoying. At SmartSweets, we're tackling one of the largest and most concerning problems hidden in our every day foods - sugar.
