Canadian Entrepreneurs

Meeting a Dragon

I had the privilege of meeting Brett Wilson at a book signing last fall while attending a small business conference in Toronto. His book is titled “Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes”

As most of you know Mr. Wilson is a very successful Canadian and for a time was on a TV show, which featured Canadian Entrepreneurs.

Two things I will remember most (besides the fact that Mr. Wilson is an engaging speaker) is that it appears he has two qualities which define not only his personal style but business acumen:

1) Brett trusts his gut instincts and 2) He still does business on a handshake.

Two qualities, which certainly define a number of entrepreneurs.

If you have the opportunity to read his book, it will give you insight into not only what makes him tick but how he remains passionate about entrepreneurship and the stories which relate to business start ups.

For me, it was a day of ahha moments as I was in the throws of my second entrepreneurial venture at a time when my peers are thinking about retirement. It was encouraging to note that in addition to hard work, if you are passionate about your business as in life you are sure to succeed.

When signing a copy of his book Mr. Wilson shared his commitment to fitness and making healthy lifestyle choices in his pursuit of ongoing wellness. In fact, he mentioned that he also has a Personal Trainer who keeps him on track in his personal quest.

When I look at our business formula we aim to Educate + Motivate individuals with making Healthy Lifestyle Choices that provide work/life balance. Combine that philosophy with a commitment to philanthropy and community engagement and we trust we have a recipe for success.

We?d love to work with you and your team and share our recipe for a healthy lifestyle. One part fitness, 2 parts nutrition tips and a few stress management techniques for good measure.
