Sheena Brady was set up to fail, an underdog all her life she decided to live by the notion of “Why not me?”, leading her to her passion and successes.
After realizing a career in hospitality would prevent her from building a successful e-commerce business, Sheena decided to work for Canada’s own e-commerce software, Shopify. From there, she blended teas out of her home while working full-time. Today, she still works at Shopify in leadership. As a Merchant Success Lead for Shopify Plus. At the same time, she has grown her side hustle into a million-dollar award-winning company that serves customers in over 30 countries around the world. “I’ve developed a deeply rooted passion for supporting and investing in women from diverse and intersectional backgrounds,” says Sheena. “I want to help you realize your potential. To be audacious. Because, why not you?”. Sheena’s success is the embodiment of the notion of the underdog set out in this month’s theme.
