Lisa Holly is a driven serial entrepreneur, focused on natural health, human rights and passionate about helping Canadian families achieve their dreams via mortgage lending. Lisa was told back in 1993 she would never succeed at sales! Sounded like a dare, almost 30 years later that prophecy proven wrong time and again.
I’m Lisa Holly and I’m approving dreams daily.
My mother told me when I was very young that I could do anything I could dream of in life; what she forgot to tell me was I couldn’t do EVERYTHING!
For that reason, I’ve led a fantastic and full life. I was first a classically trained ballet dancer, then a teacher, and finally a performer. In my late teens, dabbled in old-school landscape architecture before auto CAD was a thing, having worked on the SkyDome! I started at an early age in lending, which has led me from Toronto, across the country to BC, and back to London ON, where I run a successful mortgage business with Dominion Lending Centres Forest City Funding, the top mortgage origination franchise in the Country!
I am a very proud mother of identical twin eighteen-year-old daughters, Marlo and Lauren, who both recently began studies in Kinesiology at Western University.
Whole food and fitness have been a passion of mine for twenty years. Given the opportunity, I may pursue functional medicine in my later years for the sheer joy and understanding of how the human body works.
I once read a quote by Sir Richard Branson, “If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!” Inspired by this, three years ago, my girlfriend approached me to open a yoga studio with her, and in an attempt to balance out my stressful work life, I jumped at the chance! I’m now also a proud owner of Evolation Yoga London. I’ve learned so much more than about yoga, to be an employer, a mentor, a health coach, and I found my tribe in the process. My greatest achievement is when I ask how other people know each other, oftentimes, it was through the studio!
My favourite sayings are; just breathe, have faith, everything is as it should be.
My mother also said if you’re feeling down, put some lipstick on.
I dig deep, live passionately, and hopefully along the way, inspire other humans to live from a place of love, with grace, humility, and the same fire that drives me to be the best I can be.
