Welcome to our website

Small questionnaire – Do you recognize yourself in one or more of the following:

  • Are you of those who live in fear of losing your job?
  • Do the words outsourcing, downsizing, automation or ageism prevent you from sleeping at night?
  • Do you have a diploma that is losing its value because there is so much more competition since the last economic crisis filled the colleges and universities?
  • Do you have a much less secure job because your parents strongly recommended you to go to a field that is notoriously difficult to access, only to realize that everyone has followed the same advice?

You want to start your own business but do not know where to start?

Core beliefs

When life hits you, hit it back with a vengeance!

One should be rewarded to his or her ambitions, abilities, efforts and talents, not only through sheer luck or contacts.

Story of me

I was working as an engineer at one of the largest engineering consulting firms in Quebec. Then the corruption scandal in the construction industry happened. As business dwindled, I was let go, with dozens of other colleagues. Furious about having to take flak from the actions of a few rotten apples, I also realized that despite having played all my cards right and doing whatever society established as a road to success, i was no where near where i wanted or deserved to be.

Thus my journey to build property while keeping my dayjob began.

My purpose and the purpose of this blog

  • Show how can you launch your ideas on the market while keeping your dayjob
  • Inspire would be entrepreneurs
  • Help others avoid the mistakes i’ve made
  • Build a community of people who are looking to take their professional lives in their own hands
