Meet Elsa Collins: Founder, The Ideateur

We’ve teamed up with @TheLittleMarket in a 10-part Changemaker series because together we believe women are making world-shifting change. In honor of this, we are sitting down with Changemakers to hear how they’re pushing boundaries and problem-solving in pursuit of making a positive impact.


In the words of Dolores Huerta, the recipient of The Little Market’s 2022 Changemaker Award, “Sí se puede!” It means, “Yes we can!”


Next in the series, we have the huge honor of meeting Elsa Collins and hearing what it means to her to be a Changemaker.

What does it mean to be a Changemaker?

It means living your life like the change you want to see in all actions big or small.

How do you inspire the people around you?

I hopefully make it easier for those around me to get engaged, involved and serve their community - it is easy because I am the first one out there doing the thing....all they have to do is show up!

Who do you feel is making a huge change right now?

ELSA IS WEARING THE CHANGEMAKER IN BLACK TISSUE COTTON

How does wearing The Changemaker make you feel?

When I wear the dress, I feel like I can go anywhere. From a meeting discussing voting rights, to a basketball game with my children and beyond!

Lastly, what does an average morning look like for you?

I have had a full day by 9am! It starts in answering emails before getting out of bed, getting breakfast started, packing lunches, getting a quick HIIT workout in and then dropping all of the kids off at school. I can then sit at my computer to start working and finally have a cup of coffee and my famous bran muffin! All by 9 :)
