Our female clients are often asked to comment on the hot topic of women in business, and one of our co-founders recently shared her own views on this popular theme with the Huffington Post. Metis co-founder Courtney Hurst has a work-hard-play-hard attitude, which has helped shape Metis’ company culture, infusing the office with a camaraderie that inspires creative, innovative solutions for our clients. An entrepreneur from a young age, Courtney started out selling seashells in her hometown of Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod, an experience that inspired a lifelong love of business. Branching out into the restaurant world, Courtney worked as a waitress throughout high school and college before becoming a restaurant owner herself, and eventually wrote two books before founding Metis 10 years ago with Co-founder Cathy Atkins. The Huffington Post recently featured Courtney in a Q & A on its Women in Business blog series by Laura Dunn. When asked her best advice for aspiring female entrepreneurs, Courtney said, “Don't think of being a woman as you start your own business.” Thinking too much about obstacles can end up being counterproductive, eventually decreasing your effectiveness as a leader. Focus on your end goals, Courtney says in the piece, and listen to your gut. You can read Courtney’s entire interview in the Huffington Post.
