What is your current business or business idea?


What is your background as an entrepreneur?

I left the "real job" world at the age of 21 to set out in a career as a fine artist. Then 30+ years later, I took my creativity in a new direction and became an author. Now I'm on a quest for my next entrepreneurial adventure whatever that may be.

What do you think you will be able to provide to the group?

If nothing else, an example that you can do it - you can create a product/career for yourself and be successful if you have faith and a passion - hard work helps too :^) I personally have succeeded against the odds so-to-speak and enjoy encouraging others with my story and the blessings I've received doing what I do. In other words, if I can do it, anyone can.

What are you hoping to get from the group?

Wisdom, support, fellowship, encouragement, and fun. If you can't have fun, even in business, it's just a job.


I'm a life long resident of the Centre Region - my ancestors came here in 1793. My parents have run a small business here since the 1960s. I myself have been self employed as an artist and author since 1981. I've had to wear all the hats of business.
