Emira Mears

I'm a veteran web strategist, who co-founded Raised Eyebrow Web Studio Inc with Lauren Bacon in 2000. Our firm has developed a reputation for helping clients in the nonprofit, government and progressive business sectors use online tools more effectively. The best part of my job is working with smart and committed people who are passionate about what they do.

I'm also the co-author (with Lauren Bacon, there's a trend there) of The Boss of You: Everything A Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run and Maintain Her Own Business. Since the book was published, in 2008, we've had the pleasure of speaking at conferences and events on the topic of women, small business and defining success on your own terms. I adore meeting likeminded businesswomen, be they aspiring or established, and am blessed to count many of them as friends, colleagues and mentors.

In my increasingly dwindling spare time, I write a personal blog about DIY home renovations, gardening, design, food and lovely things at www.ourdomicile.ca.
