0012 - Interview with Ruth Montgomery: The Maven Project & HOW VULNERABILITY HEALS and HELPS US CONNECT
February 1, 2018
Ruth Montgomery is the Founder & Creator of The Maven Project. In early 2017 she ventured into the lonely world of Entrepreneurship as an Interior Designer and Professional Organizer. Through her own personal development and soul-seeking journey to create a fulfilled life she realized there was a void in South Western Ontario of personal development. Her search to find her purpose led her to creating the Maven Project; a project focusing on bringing like-minded individuals together to grow, learn and collaborate by sharing their areas of expertise with others. And to realize that though life’s journey it’s not always perfect, yet we are more alike than we are different if we open ourselves up to be vulnerable with our stories.
