I just love Business...

It gave me the life I've always wanted. I spent my whole life taking what life gave me. My business meant I could do the creative (although challenging) work I want to do, I make my own hours, no one can tell me how to do anything and what I make is completely up to what my talents allow.

I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was a kid, probably because that’s what I’ve learned from my amazing parents (legendary Canadian entrepreneurs). I love my companies and being an entrepreneur because it helps me grow in so many ways, professionally and personally, like never before. I enjoy the friendships & camaraderie of my partners and all the hard working people that make my dreams come true. I just love business. 

 

"With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
