Meet Jennifer Lussier, founder of Eff Academy and the previous President of AnyQuip. If her name sounds familiar, it is because she is a returning guest. Jen was previously on Episode 20 when she was the CMO of AnyQuip.
Jen is an amazing Calgary entrepreneur who recently worked through closing the doors of AnyQuip. The business ran into some challenges over the last year and they were forced to make the difficult decision to shut down the business. In this real chat, Jen openly shares what happened with AnyQuip and the lessons she has pulled from this.
As a result of this, Jen opened the doors to Eff Academy. A cool business built on openly sharing your failures through badges that we can proudly wear.
