From Side Hustle to Legacy Wealth And Everything in Between 

Get Clarity for Creating Your Canadian Business in 7 weeks...

THE SIMPLE ROADMAP TO SUCCEED IN CANADA.

We provide you with a step-by-step, easy-to-follow guide of everything you need to know to setup a successful business.

Setting up a business in a foreign country can be daunting for anybody.

Here’s the thing… As a Canadian immigrant myself, I get it.

You moved (or are planning to move) to the Land of Maple Syrup, but the entire process is stickier than your favorite natural sweetener.

Between the rules and regulations, it’s a sterile red tape process that can be downright… lonely.

And that loneliness has probably led you to what we affectionately call a “survival job”. The kind that has you waiting an extra 5-10 minutes just to muster up the strength to walk inside.

Stop. Breathe. Listen to your inner voice. It’s telling you that you’ve been built for more.

And it’s right. In fact, you moved to this country for more. More opportunity. More culture. More fill-in-the-blank here. And just surviving isn’t the more you were meant for. 

The time to start your business in now. The way to do it is right here.

It doesn’t matter if you’re starting a side hustle or a business to create ultimate generational wealth. Businesses in Canada all start the same way: With the human connections that run them. 

Which is exactly why I decided to put together a course to walk you step by step to open and run your Canadian business while providing support to build your network.

The Natural Step of Wanting to Know What’s Next

If there’s one thing I know it’s the journey of moving to a new country. It takes a certain kind of person to pack themselves up and move from everything they’ve known.

That’s the kind of person who has taken a long hard look on their lives and said, “This isn’t it. I want to make more a reality.”

So then you jump in. You grab the email to contact the right people. You fill out the paperwork. You wait for the approvals. And the entire time, you’re looking for the next step to cross the red tape.

Entrepreneurship, in a way, is the same roller coaster. Only, finding what to do next isn’t so straightforward. You do the Google thing. You pull up the search bar. You type in “How to start a business in Canada.” And before you know it, you have a thousand tabs you’re trying to sift through and decipher. By. Yourself. Possibly, in your second language.

Here’s the thing though. Even though it’s the same rollercoaster, It doesn’t have to be ridden the same way. You can have a partner on board. (And not just in the stale email correspondence way.)

Someone who has been there. Who understands what you’re experiencing. And is willing to help you take the next natural step in a clear and concise way.

No more confusion. No more sifting through a thousand internet tabs. No more wondering if you’re “getting it right.” All the right info is right here. And recorded so you can come back to it anytime you need. 

Nitty Gritty and Red Tape

This is probably where you’re aching to start. You want to know which documents you need, what policies to follow, and which T’s you need to cross.

So right off the bat, I want to assure you, we will go over all of that. Everything from how to register your business, licenses, permits and taxes, to what questions you can and cannot ask when hiring.

Even though the red tape is there… let me promise you, it’s more than just checking off the boxes.

This course will help you see the right and wring way of of business foundations. The right way is not to guess if you’re doing them right. We’ll set you up with foundations that make sense so you can grow your business into what you want it to be.

Which is exactly why I decided to put together a course to walk you step by step to open and run your Canadian business while providing support to build your network.

Your Business is Human

The pillars of this course were created so Canadian immigrants with entrepreneurial spirit can start and run their business the right way from the get-go.

When I say I understand what you’re going through as a Canadian immigrant starting a business, I really mean it...

I witnessed it. I lived it. And it’s the exact reason why I created this course.

My Dad moved our family to Canada with a veterinarian degree and over twenty years of experience. As a well educated and well experienced professional, you’d think he’d be able to land a job pretty easily, right?

That was the hope. That’s everyone’s hope. But the honest truth is, it takes both time and networking to get yourself in a place where you can do what you WANT to do.

It took my dad five years to recertify his licenses and credentials. That’s when he made the decision to go back to working for himself and open a new clinic. But there are some major differences between opening a business in Mexico and opening a business in Canada. And that process was overwhelming.

If my dad struggled to get where he wanted, I knew others did too.

Yes, this is a how-to course on starting up a business. It’s also a community of knowledgeable people going through the same thing and a network of experts who can help prevent any mistakes from being made from day one.

So if that’s what you’re looking for, then I would love you to join us on the journey to owning your Canadian business, the right way.
