Tara Ritchie - Principal - Evelyn Avenue

Meet the Owner, Tara Ritchie

Like so many entrepreneurs my journey began because I wanted more. More time. More return. More me.

My entire entrepreneurial journey began a lifetime ago in my early 20’s but I really brought my skills front and centre in my late 30’s when I wanted to be home with my children. That’s when I took my organization, accountability, forethought and communication skills and became owner & operator of a local social media networking group for mothers. My entrepreneurial journey has snowballed from there. I’ve even used my skills working in the Parent Council at my children’s school. This is where I honed my creativity and design skills.

A few Fun Facts about Me:

  1. I love to eat and often out eat everyone at the table. My favourite food? Italian My least favourite food? Anything with Fish in it.

  2. I love journals, notebooks and books. I love them more than shoes, but I do have a weakness for bags and purses. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

  3. I didn't own my first car until I was in my mid-thirties. In a city with Transit and a bike, there was just never any need.

  4. Sometimes I feel like the worst mom ever. Mom-Guilt. It's a thing.

  5. I do not have a green thumb. Plants have a way of not surviving around me. I have some of those "can't kill me" plants in the house and even those sometimes look really sad.

Why I do what I do

There is one thing that I have learned as I have gotten older and that is that time is not ours to change, but instead, we must make the most of the time that we have.

Being an entrepreneur is who I am. I thrive on working with lots of businesses and other entrepreneurs. Through web design and business strategy, I am helping grow other people’s dreams.
