Companies could bring business and society back together if they redefined their purpose as creating “shared value”.
— Michael Porter and Mark Kramer
Canada appears to fall short in developing business skills and has fewer highly educated managers . . . Canada lags its peers in the development of business skills.

Never mind that a plumber making house calls bills more per hour than you do: Canadians are turning their backs on skilled trades. And as the Baby Boomer generation steps away from the workforce in the next decade or two, experts predict Canada’s skills shortage could reach a million people.

About Me

After receiving my undergrad in 2005 from the University of Prince Edward Island, I took a summer job as an HVAC helper; 5 years later, I was Red Seal certified in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, as well as being licensed in natural gas and propane (Gas Fitter 2).  I worked for a few more years with those licenses before moving into a sales job in Calgary and, eventually, into sales management in Salt Lake City.  It was during those sales years, being mentored by some truly amazing people, that I began to contemplate the idea of a new way to manage a business.  Today, my colleagues, advisors, investors, and I are ambitiously creating a platform that will change the way people think about business ownership.
