Motorvationally Speaking: "Get Up and Go Go"

Watching Kara accept her business excellence award from the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce last fall, made an immediate and lasting impression.

There was no mistaking her passion for the business idea that got her to that stage as well as the gratitude she felt for those who had helped her along the way. Her story literally tumbled its way into the hearts of the more than 500 people in attendance that night at the Sheraton Centre.

Starting out as an MBA class project, Kara's company became the talk of the town after winning prestigious awards such as New Brunswick Innovation Foundation 1st place student entrepreneurship prize. Recently selected to participate in the Wallace McCain Institute Cohort Program, the energetic CEO of Go Go Gymnastics is considered one of New Brunswick's brightest young entrepreneurs.

Today on TSB, we get up close and personal with a rising star who is doing business with Fun, Fitness and Flare ... from Go Go Gymnastics, in Fredericton, NB ... Kara Hachey.
