The Gift of Me

Being an entrepreneur is a great gift...and in my world that's a gift from God to me.
You see I am a firm believer that God's gift to me is my talent and my gift to God is what I do with my talent.
I wasn't always an entrepreneur though..for years I worked in Corporate Canada and for the most part I loved it.I was leading a very comfortable life...$$, glamour, status. was a wonderful experience with wonderful people...except one!

And at the time I was going through hell with this one boss I never thought I would say this but he actually was a great help to me. He actually saved me..


He enabled me to rediscover who I was truly meant to be...what was my DNA..what was my gift. He forced me into such discomfort that I began my journey back to why I was born...and I want to thank him publicly for that now. Thanks for being a prick Mr. Jerk..because without you I might never have rediscovered my true calling and I would never be living the life of my dreams right gift.

So what is this all about...I want to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone. Take 30 days to really search if what you are doing is what you really think/feel you should be life with passion. Waking up on Mondays excited!! Being true to why you are here!

As my father loves to say...Life ain't no dress rehearsal.

Here's to Your Success!
