My entire career has been about working with business owners
I’ve met and worked with an incredible number of entrepreneurs and business leaders over my career in the Ottawa business community.
At this point, connecting business owners with others who can help them is part of my DNA. When I got my start in Real Estate thirty years ago, my niche was working with business owners to find warehouse and business spaces. I moved on to own and run a franchise for over a decade, and found myself working and helping other franchisees when I became an Area Manager for Eastern Ontario.
Then my time as Executive Director of the Orleans Chamber of Commerce and my rewarding work with Invest Ottawa saw me working with and advocating for businesses in any and all sectors and industries our city has to offer.
Don’t undervalue what you do
One thing that’s struck me over the years is just how much business in Ottawa has to offer, yet I continuously see entrepreneurs undervalue and underestimate themselves. I see so many businesses that have all the potential in the world but their leaders are too stuck and overwhelmed in the day-to-day to realize their opportunities. They don’t think big enough.
I want to help Ottawa’s budding entrepreneurs and business leaders see themselves as unique. I want to help them see themselves as the innovators they are, who can offer so much more. I’m at my best when I’m collaborating, brainstorming and working with other like-minded people who aren’t satisfied with the status quo.
