On businesswomen in Dawson Creek : “Sometime it amazes me, I was just looking through the women we have, we have incredible business-women, and have awesome boss-babes. Owning a business can be one of those things that’s not so appreciated, you do a lot of work, you feel taxed, and sometimes you don’t feel appreciated enough.”
