I will

I was once told … ‘You will barely graduate high school.’
So I graduated with honours.

I was once told … ‘You aren’t the university type.’
I got accepted to the top engineering school in Canada with scholarship, though didn’t go.

I was once told…’ I can’t believe you made it to your final year with such poor writing skills’
My fourth year in-depth research paper was the top in the class.

I was once told …’You will never live abroad’
I went to Australia, for one year.

I was once told … ‘You will fail’
I did.   And it was awesome.

Recently, I was told …. ‘Your business idea is good, but YOU can’t possibly do it’
I will.

A New Chapter

For those of you who do read my blog, or the random posts here and their, you haven’t had the chance to see the behind-the-scenes me.  I have been extremely busy, hence the lack of posts. My bad.  But today, I have a special announcement. Some of you, my close friends, will know that I have resigned from BizLaunch after 2.5 years and am moving on to a Com. Mngt/Biz Dev role at Face Wireless (At the time of this post the company had not launched).  My time at BizLaunch was well served. I met some amazing, inspiring, and ambitious entrepreneurs. Like Roxanne Pettipas, CEO of Buddy-Belts, Mike McDerment, President of Freshbooks, Mark Ruddock, Former president of Viigo, Sarah Prevette, founder of Sprouter, and many many more.  I wish you all well! But let me remind you, this is not a good bye, but a see you soon.

Although my new role will involve little interaction with entrepreneurs, I am still deeply attached to the community.  I love the passion, risk, and adventures entrepreneurs take. You are all amazing people.

In my new role I will be taking on new adventures myself, helping grow a potentially large company and meet even more extraordinary people.  I am looking forward to the challenge.

So to those whom I have worked very closely with in the last few years, Good Luck and you will be missed!  On to a new chapter in my life. This one, the biggest step forward in years.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain.
