Today, I was asked the question of if I were to start over, who is the first and most important person you would ask to join your team?
That was a tough question to answer, and really made me think about all the great people that helped and still are helping with our business. I decided I would post the acknowledgement section of my book in a post. I could likely write a book on how each one helped, is still helping, or how great they are in skill and most importantly character.
I believe in business you do not need to know how to do everything, you just need to surround yourself with the best and brightest people.
So here it is, please feel free to reach out if you would like a more personalized reference, if you chose to use any of the services from these people:
I want to recognize some of the great people who have helped me get to where I am today. It might have been through a business association, or a shoulder to cry on, when I had a tough day.I am so grateful to have met the following people.
These are all very special business people. Make sure you check out the websites of some of the folks who played a supporting role in my business.
The first shout out might be obvious, that’s to my wife, Shelly Currie. She’s also my property management/landlording partner. It’s so amazing that I was able to find someone to share my business and life with. Thank you, Shelly for joining me on this amazing journey.
I want to shout out to our business partner and vice-president of The Fort Nova Group (our real estate investment company), Michael Thibeau.
I want to thank my dad, Don Currie and stepmother, Maureen Currie, who on more than one occasion have stepped in to help with various property management and cleaning jobs. Sometimes, we need all the help we can get to meet tight timelines.
