Elaine Tan Comeau is a successful entrepreneur, mom of three, happily married and a (reformed) multi-tasker. Back in April of 2018, she suffered a stroke. In this intimate interview with Elaine, she shares details of that day that she has never shared publicly before. She learned a few critical life lessons on that fateful day, and in the months that followed in her stroke recovery.
Elaine Tan Comeau knows the ups and downs of being a mom entrepreneur. She launched her product line and company from off her kitchen table two days after her third baby was born. She went from being a school teacher to accidentally inventing a children’s product, to CEO and Founder of one of Dragons’ Den favorite pitches, Easy Daysies, which incited a bidding war among all five Dragons. Also winner of Kevin Harrington's Pitch Tank. She has been featured in Forbes, Macleans, CBC, FOX, CTV, Canadian Business Magazine, and the Financial Post, to name a few.
Elaine was awarded the 2014 Canadian Mompreneur of the Year, Three time nominee for the RBC Women of Influence Award (but she has never accepted), Chamber of Commerce Award for Excellence in Business, and just published her third article in a University Textbook, "Educational Psychology". Her company Easy Daysies (www.easydaysies.com) has won 13 awards and was announced as one of the 2018 Top Ten Most Innovative Companies by Small Business BC.
Easy Daysies was also chosen by Ford Company as one the 2014 Dragons’ Den Driven For Success Companies that exemplified Ford’s Four Pillars of Success. Elaine loves supporting women in business through speaking on stages, through her podcast “Elaine’s Kitchen Table… the Business of Real Life”, as the Lead Ambassador of the Western Canada Chapter of Mompreneurs Canada, and through her Best Seller book, “Sell Your Passion”!
