Fearless Fridays                    

We think that running your own business requires a lot (and we mean a lot) of courage. We wanted to highlight some of the entrepreneurs we know doing great work.

Our Courageous Entrepreneurs

Fearless Friday Black Star Weatlh

Belinda Clemmensen

Belinda Clemmensen, Founder of The Women's Leadership Intensive, fierce supporter of women leaders, community builder, coach, believer in the win-win, optimist, purpose-driven.

Belinda is a a tenacious supporter and coach to her clients - that gets her out of her own head so that the fear falls away and she is just clear and committed.  Her belief that leaders "go first", and that courage and vulnerability are inextricably linked means that yes she feels the fear of being vulnerable just like anyone else, but her commitment is to do it anyway.  And when she does, good things happen. A mantra that helps her is "it's not about you."  "I don't mean that in a dismissive way - rather it helps me to get out of my own way and focus on my purpose and mission which is to inspire, empower, equip and support women to lead the change the world needs."

Leigh Clements

Leigh always felt there was a fundamental flaw in the traditional idea of a mystery party, and so she founded Shot in the Dark Mysteries. Shot in the Dark Mysteries is a TRUE investigation – one that leaves hosts and guests alike enjoying the experience.

It is women like Leigh who have the inspiration to follow a dream and a profound ability to truly serve her customers. That's why we at Black Star Wealth™ are having our office holiday party with a little Murder Mystery Fun.

Little Eden 

The "earth friendly café and bakery."

Katherine Hosker, created Little Eden as a way to bring all of her experiences to life. From her family kitchen to her aunt's commercial bakery, Katherine knew from a young age exactly what she wanted to do. Over the years, she became passionate to live a more environmentally sound life and a desire to be more inclusive of diversity.

Today, we could not be more excited share why we love Little Eden so much. Not just for their wonderful bakery goods (Let me tell you, they are SOOO good) but for all that Little Eden encompasses, all that Katherine Hosker encompasses.

QueenPins was started in Spring 2016 by a group of women from Halifax with the mission to raise funds for a local cause while networking with other powerful women.  QueenPins was created to uplift, empower and unite women. 

The inaugural event in May 2016 hosted over 100 women business leaders and raised funds for the Canadian Women’s Rugby Team. Building on the momentum of that first event, they’ve held another five in support of Junior Achievement Nova Scotia, Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia, Eating Disorders Nova Scotia, Friendly Divas, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Halifax.

Learn more about QueenPins and all their fun events and join us in uplifting other women.

Christina Forgeron

As a teacher and administrator with over twenty-five years of domestic and international experience, Christina is thrilled to announce the launch of “Bolster”, an online, international (but Halifax-based) business created on the fringes of being locked down and learning with our children.  Bolster is a unique company that helps families with education, though not through tutoring. They believe that the solutions to school anxiety exist already within the home and they want to help you to find them.  


Bolster works with all parents to establish what they feel peaceful education should look like in their home (either while homeschooling or doing homework). They help you to discover the possible obstacles to your vision and to create a plan that targets these obstacles, using your strengths and acquired knowledge.   

They also work with children between the ages of 8-14 to develop their identity as an empowered student with the ability to make meaningful changes to their academic habits and success.   In working with your child, they model and teach goal-setting, time management and prioritizing strategies to foster this empowered view.

Julie Beun

Julie Beun is as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside. When I first met Julie, she was finishing up a long term gig in communications, and I was immediately drawn to her wonderful energy. She is a writer extraordinaire, a wonderful story teller and has a book coming out next year. But that is just one facet of who she is - when COVID arrived, she quickly assessed what was needed and pivoted to making and selling face masks. Stylish, comfortable and accessible online; she now employs others and has built quite a nice enterprise.
