2005 was a breakthrough for Grace's business. That was the year she decided to become a full-time entrepreneur. She started with the little knowledge she had from her Dad who was an entrepreneur and who owned his own business for over 20 years. After she has completed 2 career cycles (one in Lebanon and one in Canada) she decided it was time for her to leave the corporate world and focus more on fulfilling the dream of establishing her own business. She started by going back to College and completing an Honours Diploma in Business Administration and Accounting. In 2007, She acquired her Microsoft Certification as a trainer, and she started teaching evening courses in Business Applications; while during the day she focused on starting her own business. The result of 13+ years of her hard work as an entrepreneur has been OSBN® and HUDDLESPACE™.
