At Base Paws we’re trying to peel the onion to understand what breeds make up your cat and then use that information so you can give them the best care.

– Anna Skaya

When you mix perseverance and a great idea, you can find so many amazing inventions that have been created against all odds, naysayers, and doubts. When you hear the words, pet health – What comes to mind? You may picture your fur family and smile at the thought of all the joy they bring or maybe you think of your shredded furniture and can just laugh at the trouble they can get into. Our pets are a lifeline and keeping them part of our lives as long as possible would be amazing… wouldn’t it?

What if I told you there is a woman on a mission to help people discover just how they can do that and truly get to know what makes their cat… uniquely them?

On this episode of OWC’s Leaders & GameChangers, Setorii Pond speaks with Anna Skaya, the inventor who inspired both Kevin O’Leary and Robert Herjavec from the hit TV show Shark Tank to invest in her company, BasePaws. Since then, her business has been skyrocketing, and I am so excited to share a little of Anna’s entrepreneurial journey to help inspire us all.
