Life Insurance Agent & Broker.
My journey to being a financial advisor started when I was turned down for a Mrs. Field’s Cookie franchise at age 19.
I had been visiting Hawaii when I first discovered the tasty opportunity and I was sold on the idea of making my own business out of it.
Sadly, I was turned down because they weren’t operating in Canada yet. Instead of dampening my entrepreneurial spirit, the experience made me realize there was a part of me that didn’t want a conventional 9-5 life.
And even though I did 9-5 work through 40 years of living, including getting married and raising my son, that entrepreneurial spark stuck with me. I always had a side hustle.
