Baby Steps Led Mother To National "Entrepreneurial Export Award"

In BusinessEdge (Vancouver, B.C.)

Sandra Wilson is putting her best foot forward as she steps up to receive the 2004 Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of The Year Export Award.

The Burnaby-based maker of soft-soled leather baby shoes was honoured last week at a gala dinner in Toronto by BMO Financial Group. “This award means a little bit of recognition of the time, the effort and the energy that has gone into building this business,” says Wilson, owner of Robeez Footwear Ltd. “Most people think we are an overnight success story, but it has actually taken us 10 long years.”
