Annie Earnshaw, Cannon Class of 2017
Sophomore Annie Earnshaw and junior Livi Murray are two Elon University students who have taken full advantage of their spare time on campus — between classes, homework, clubs and social lives, they also run their own businesses.
Earnshaw said she doesn’t encounter many issues as a female entrepreneur, considering her clients are mostly college women. Her business, Paint By Annie, sells custom canvases.
Earnshaw said this entrepreneurial spirit was instilled in her from a young age and inspired her to start her own business. Earnshaw’s mother recently decided to quit her corporate job to pursue her own passion of interior design.
“I was raised by an entrepreneur, and even when she wasn’t directly 'entrepreneuring,' she instilled those values in me of working hard, finding your niche and being creative," Earnshaw said.
