This all came about when I read an email from an old high school friend Natalie Jamison, Weath Advisor with Scotia McLeod with the title that read “You are invited to meet a dragon ~Arlene Dickinson in person?” I had to do a double take? Was this email meant for me? Could this be possible?!?!? My hands were already shaking when I hit the keyboard button to read the email in its entirety. I couldn’t believe it was actually going to happen. I was going to meet a fellow entrepreneur that I respect so much. I was so excited! I even rescheduled our family vacation until after March 11th. I was not going to miss out on this opportunity. The days leading up to the event passed with what seemed like months! It couldn’t come fast enough! When the day finally arrived, I was over the moon. Being in the same room with Arlene Dickinson and meeting her face to face was truly an awe-inspiring moment for me. She was so much more in person (she’s got an awesome sense of humor) than what I viewed every week on television. Her energy is contagious and I feel blessed to have shared time with her. That day will be remembered by me forever as one of the most special days of my entreprenurial life. Thanks again Natalie.
Mentoring these young entrepreneurs put me right in my element. I loved every single minute of it. It was such an important experience for me to help guide them and ensure that their pitches were “python” ready. Being able to help others brings a sense of satisfaction and happiness to me that is unparalleled. I am so excited for the opportunities that lay ahead for all the candidates and I am looking forward to the live taping which will take place at The Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Monday May 4, 2015.
