What makes an opportunity exciting to you – in business or in life?
I LOVE the opportunity to meet new people, whether business or personal. I am so inspired by people’s stories and always learn something in the process.
What has been the greatest shift in your career or life and how did you navigate through it? The greatest shift for me in my career was leaping from my comfortable, salaried position at the bank into being 100% self-employed with no idea of where the income was going to come from. I just trusted my gut and put my one- and three-year-old kids into daycare for three months while I studied for my broker’s exam. I trusted my intuition and my drive to advocate and help and I didn’t worry about where the future would take me. I just did it and 12 years later it was the best decision I could have ever made, and the exact right time for me in hindsite.
What has been your favourite experience you love to share?
My favourite experience has been helping a struggling mother of two who had zero financial experience through a divorce. I was able to help her keep her home, buy the spouse out and start a career for herself. The ultimate in determination, and knowing what you are capable of, and that you are worthy of great things. With the right support, you can accomplish anything.
What are you up to right now that people should know about?
No one knows this yet, but I am making another leap. A new side-adventure. I have waited 25 years to do this. I have been studying the craft of acting, and with Hollywood North being such a fantastic opportunity, I will also be moonlighting as an actor. Even saying it makes me excited. You are never too old, nor too much time gone by to follow a dream!
“How you make people feel is one of life’s guiding principles. I always want people walking away knowing they were heard, feeling they are important and just a little lighter.”
Wishing you a VERY Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve to feel special xx
