Hi, Brittany here, owner and Founder of BLISS Okotoks. A background in education, leadership, and a serious passion for people, I found myself lost and confused after being diagnosed with stage one melanoma, 2-month-old baby, and 11 years into a corporate job where I didn't really know my place. Some serious soul searching, goal making, and life figure-outing (yes I’m making up my own words), I finally found my place in the world, and beyond excited to support, educate, learn, and evolve, with anyone who's willing to take a risk on themselves, and support your business in a way you've never imagined.
Founded on BIG dreams, high hopes, & never believing in failure, BLISS was born from a passion to provide more for local entrepreneurs. Home to eight individual businesses: an Alberta Health Services certified daily room rental; BLISS is a collaborative space for women in business to run their business and lift each other up. Unique in that our space is universal to anyone in any business, our mission is to provide a beautiful shared space for your business to flourish.With firsthand experience dealing with the high cost of room rentals in Okotoks & area, and meeting SO many incredible women with awesome side hustles, we were determined to provide a space that women could utilize to help their business grow. The BLISS Room is a 120 sq. foot beautiful space that is available to rent on a permanent daily term, or one-time basis. Located at the heart of Elma Street, you’re not only operating your passion from a gorgeous space but being surrounded by like minded women who are motivated to lifting one another up and helping each other succeed in this crazy world of SMALL BUSINESS.
