How important is a connection? Dental Hygienist turned Entrepreneur - Brooke Huston has always dreamed of launching a swimwear line. Working as not only a hygienist, but also as an influencer for many swimwear brands - Brooke thought, “why can’t I do this? why can’t I be the person behind it and create this?” So with that, she alongside her business partner Kat Landry, launched '6 Degrees Swim' - based off of the 6 degrees of separation rule, meaning you are only 6 connections away from someone else in the world. To Brooke, one of the most important things to her business is, connection. Through working with brands as a content creator, she’s been able to establish long lasting relationships with other female owned business owners, content creators and more - who have also stepped behind her swimwear line and shown their support. At the end of the day, Brooke looks back on the brand after taking a leap of faith during the COVID-19 pandemic and starting to build her company. Coming from a small town in Thunder Bay, she has never wanted to settle - wether that be in her career, relationship, etc. and believes that starting now, is the only way you’ll ever do what you really want in life. But, to also remember to never get ahead of yourself and always take the time to reflect where you are right now and enjoy the ride.
