Whether you’re a seasoned business owner, in the pre-launch stage or are currently side-hustling as a freelancer, it’s no secret that being an entrepreneur is a rollercoaster ride, amirite?!
Coffee & Smiles is a lifestyle website for women entrepreneurs and creatives, featuring interviews and profiles, inspiring editorials, business advice and more. It’s also an online community to learn, get inspired and feel connected to other women all at different stages of their creative and entrepreneurial journeys.
C&S was founded in 2019 by Vancouver-based writer Maansi Pandya. Maansi was previously an online editor and contributing writer for Vancouver magazine and Western Living, and has also written for BC Living, BC Bookworld, and the Vancouver Observer (Click here to read her work!).
After completing her postgraduate studies, Maansi lived in London, England where she worked at a tech startup and a bookstore, meeting other writers and creatives across different industries. The idea for C&S came from a desire to connect with other women experiencing the similar highs and lows of living a creative life and trying to pursue ideas.
