Co-owner of PUSH Cycling Studio, Hartsook has shown amazing determination over the past two and a half years since starting her business.
Balancing her career as a dental hygienist, her new business venture, and family hasn’t been easy but, according to her friend and client Kara Fulton, Hartsook has done it with grace.
“Janine is always positive, outgoing and determined,” says Fulton, who notes Hartsook is an inspiration. “She works extremely hard and is selfless as well – she always puts everyone else first.”
Although now a single mom with a busy work and teaching schedule, Hartsook remains determined to give the best of herself in all she does.
That commitment hasn’t gone unnoticed: Hartsook and her business partner, Tammy Block, won the Emerging Business Award at the 2016 Airdrie Business Awards.
Hartsook also exhibits confidence and optimism and has a unique ability to encourage others to be strong as well.
“Know that you can [face challenges],” she says. “You just have to not be so hard on yourself and let yourself adjust. Give yourself some room to breathe.”
