Janie Gaudet is the owner and principal designer of Sweet Crete Decor, where she uses her tremendous talent to create artistic and durable décor items with concrete. Out of her studio space and workshop in Warman, Saskatchewan, Janie takes pleasure and pride in building innovative and imaginative pieces that are highly customized to delight both residential and commercial clients across the province.
According to Janie, the secrets to business success are resiliency, exceptional troubleshooting skills, and a genuine understanding of customer desires.
In terms of start-up advice, she encourages others to “start simple and add in more details as you go.” Of the many things she appreciates about being an entrepreneur, working from home and being present with her family are at the very top of the list.
As she looks into the future, Janie is committed to growing her business and has her sights set on adding new revenue streams down the road. Ongoing training, research, and experiments keep her tuned in to the exciting and ever-changing realm of decorative concrete. Janie credits Community Futures and the ELEVATE program for providing important support throughout the initial launch and growth phases of Sweet Crete.
