Vanessa and I met about a year and half ago and became fast friends. We work at The Fitness Firm together (actually she had a hand in hiring me), leading our Personal Training team and have spent many working and non-working hours together.
Come to think of it, I was the lucky recipient of a few text messages while she was in labour with her darling little girl, Ava!
I suppose what drew us to one another was this deep rooted ambition to achieve more. Our conversations quickly turned into one plan or idea after another on how we could become an overnight success story! Many of these plans were made while strolling around Burlington, taking Ava for afternoon walks. During these walks we would often pick out houses and decide how we could improve on it’s look and then continue planning our other plans.
Then one night while planning our other plans, it happened. We sat frustrated, wondering how we were going to finance this new project and a very exasperated Vanessa said ‘I just want this to be successful so I can get into real estate and house flipping’.
And my response? ME TOO!
After hours and hours of planning and dreaming and trying to so hard to come up with the perfect idea, we both realized that on top of sharing this determination to achieve more, we also shared the same underlying passion to pursue careers in real estate and house flipping!
So here we are… we still don’t have a means to finance our vision but considering the road we have both traveled to get to this point I have all the faith in the world that because it’s passion that is driving us, we will reach our destination and enjoy every minute of the ride!
