How have you achieved success?

Surrounding myself with good friends that have great character made me want to do more and be more.  Never surround yourself with people with no goals in life. I also work alongside some industry leading professionals who inspire me to be a better version of myself. 

What obstacles have you overcome in the process?

Finding the confidence I need to be successful is probably one of the hardest obstacles I’ve had to overcome in my life. We all have that voice in our head that tells you all the negative things that could happen, but we need to listen to the voice that tells you all the great things that can happen instead and make them a reality. 

What drives you to succeed?

Fear for me, the fear I will let my family down drives me to be the best I can be each day. I worked for several CRA companies early on in my career which provided me with a lot of industry knowledge. I realized that to be successful I always needed to be learning and expanding my professional networks. I am a lifelong learner and I am always looking to improve. 

How has your definition of success changed over the years? 

I think you need big goals to succeed but you need a solid roadmap on how to get there. Every year your definition of success will change with your goals but as you grown and accomplish each milestone your goals will continue to grow. Take the time to reassess your path when you need to and also don’t be scared to alter your goals either. 

What has success meant to you? 

It is up to you to define success for yourself, and no one can do it for you. Being successful could mean making a positive impact on the world. It can also mean professional advancement.

Having the ability to do what you love could mean a lot. In a nutshell, it could mean being able to provide the best possible upbringing for your children.

There’s no right or wrong answer. There is no one approach that works for everyone.

Do you have advice for others on how to be successful?

My best advice would be to always remain organized. Always have a clear picture of where you want to be in the next five years and then do your best to plan your goals accordingly. And secondly, be open and honest with your clients. Communication is fundamental to success and transparency cultivates a sense of trust.
