)-- Mona Straub is an original. Mixing an uncanny ability to know what people, want with beautiful, handcrafted products for you and your pet has landed Straub as a finalist for the 2016 WIPIN Pet Industry “Woman of the Year” Award.
Her brand, Just Fur Fun®, uses high quality bridal leather to make creative, beaded collars, leashes, belts and other accessories that make a distinctive statement of style.
Having grown her business dramatically over the past couple of years with a cultivated business savvy and the determination of a long distance runner, Straub takes her place next to the top females in the industry that the WIPIN award recognizes, highlighting their business acumen, networking skills, brand growth and their commitment to giving back. Ultimately, there will be one woman named Woman of the Year, but others amongst the esteemed group of finalists will be honored with an award in the following categories: Solopreneur, Entrepreneur, Corporate, Advocate, and Rising Star.
After an extensive career in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies, Mona Straub switched gears and redirected her life onto another path; one that would honor her love of animals and utilize her business savvy. As a female business owner, Mona has an interest in helping other women in business and sharing her knowledge and experience. She is inspired by successful women and would like to be an inspiration to other women seeking to develop their careers and build their businesses, all traits looked for in the WIPIN “Woman of the Year” recipient.
“Providing pet parents with high-quality, unique product is a labor of love and an extremely rewarding experience,” said Mona Straub. “It’s an incredible privilege to be a Finalist in this year’s WIPIN ‘Woman of the Year Award.’ I am honored to be recognized as a successful business leader in my industry and to share this recognition with other prominent women in this space.” The motto at Just Fur Fun® says it all, “Never Ordinary, Always Extraordinary, Just Like You and Your Pet!”
