Laura Hansen


Laura Hansen is the sole owner and President of Image Group Inc, one of Canada’s largest firms in the industry with 20 staff and

annual sales exceeding $7 million. She has also been ranked 50th in the latest Profit Magazine Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs.

When asked about the key to her success, Hansen offered some words of wisdom. “The most important thing was that we stayed true to the industry we were in. You have to focus on what you’re doing and stay with it. Improve on your product and customer service, because it’s the small things at the end of the day that make your company successful.”

Hansen added that although self-employment is difficult, there are many advantages. “You get to set the hours your work, the dress code and the mood of the office. It’s the control you have; being in charge of your day, your destiny, and even where you want to be in five years. It’s really a great thing!”
