MJ's Sports Bar - Chaleur Region Woman Entrepreneur of the Year 2012

Chaleur Region Woman Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 Camillia Boudreau - MJ's Sports Bar

Backgrounder:

Being the 19th in a family of 20 children, Mrs. Camillia Boudreau started working very young. At the age of 12, she was already cooking Chinese food at the City Motel. From this early age, she saw herself becoming an entrepreneur. It was her dream; her passion. She acquired many years of experience in restaurants and management roles when she met her future husband. For 19 years she worked as a manager in their three stores that they owned which offered many services and complementary businesses.

It was in 2008 that her dream of becoming a sole proprietor became a reality as she acquired MJ's Sports Bar located at 969, Principale Street in Beresford. From renovations to innovations, MJ’s Sports Bar became a multifunctional place that you want to discover. It’s the place to go to relax, to have a snack while you listen to sports and socialize or even to celebrate during group meetings and special events. Her 10 employees are courteous and professional and the place is luxurious and immaculate.

Camillia Boudreau is actively involved in the community and champions several social causes. She has organized many fundraising activities for the Breast Cancer Society as well as for the participants of TV shows as "Star Académie" and "So You Think You Can Dance." Mrs. Camillia Boudreau says she is very proud of her success and that she owes it to her parents who taught her to be confident in herself and gave her the courage to go farther.

"I would like to thank you for picking Ben's Clothing for the retail consulting makeover.  I very much enjoyed talking to Barbara.  She has wonderful insites on what to do to refresh my store.  I was extremly excited of the ideas put together thats in my budget for now and also in the near future.
 
The 1st part of the seminar, had opened my eyes to the reality of my challenges and concerns, statistics, operating cost and marketing which is a huge part that can not be ignored. It's a must to have a list of issues to know it and control it.  This is a large part of my battles that I face but placed them in the back burner. 
 
When Barbara came into my store I wasn't sure what to expect because in the seminar she was leaning towards makeovers for a new store or toronto style store.  I had no idea that a little bit of paint in a different color will bring out what I want to promote.  She had alot of new ideas that are in the budget and I'm going to make it happen!
 
Thank you again for filling me in with the seminars that are offered.  I'm always willing to get informed and always moving forward."
