I started my first business in Edmonton Alberta when I was 19 years old. With practically no experience I found long hours and hard work made up for lack of skills and money. Since that first start up I have been President of several successful business and a financial shareholder in some not so successful.
After over forty years of owning and managing business’s you can’t help but learn what it takes to be successful….. A bias towards your customers, surround yourself with really good employees, constant learning and be ready for change.
I managed to balance a wife and three daughters, a hobby of collecting and racing vintage sports cars and snowboarding along with the rewards and sacrifices of owning your own business. I love seeing the success of the entrepreneurs today.
