When I was 21 I felt compelled to leave home and travel west to see what I might discover.
Financially it ruined me. 9/11 happened as I was driving and every opportunity for work dried up on the spot.
I was sleeping on couches for weeks hoping something would pan out… then one day I get a call from a recruiter asking me if I was willing to move to Fort McMurray, AB.
In a two year period I grew as a leader.
The people I worked with were on another level.
My manager to this day is one of the best leaders I’ve ever met and I continue to email to thank him for taking the time to teach me what he did.
