Review a brief history of my business experience.
I started at age 9 in 1977 with a paper route that, after two years of my looking after it, I was making $200.00 a month working 2 hours a day. Let me put that is perspective; my father, who was a journeyman carpenter, was making $3.25 an hour for a monthly salary of $520 a month working 40 hours a week.
My entrepreneur lifestyle kept going, and between 1985 and 1991, I managed a produce department in a major grocery store, an independent convenience store, and my buy-sell business. Then in 1991, I attended college for my bachelor of arts in business. Immediately upon graduating in 1993, I added a wife. We moved to a remote reservation to set up systems and manage an economic development with a small grocery store, restaurant, and gas bar. While there, they build a motel, and I created systems for its operation.
In 1995 I began to return to my love of scuba diving that started in 1985. I fell into it so hard I went from novice to professional in a couple of years. By 1997 I was an instructor and had left the reservation to pursue a career in diving. I subcontracted my services and continued my education while beginning a commercial diving career; this went on until 2001 when my second child was born, and I opened a dive center of my own—the first of my brick and mortar business.
My wife and I started this dive center with $5000.00, and it consisted of 400 square feet of retail and 600 square feet of rental area. In the next two years, my wife and I build that company and changed locations twice. Anyone who has had to change locations knows the disruption to business this causes. In 2002 we were in a 2000 square foot facility with an indoor pool, dedicated classroom area, equipment repair area, and enough rental equipment to take 30 students to the pool or 20 students to the ocean, with the remainder of the dive center for retail. I had upgraded my instructor status to a point where I could train students from eight years old to instructors. I also increased my education in commercial diving and was taking on more and more of that. Over the five years, I had generated just over .75 million dollars in gross revenues. Remember, I started this all with only $5000.00.
By 2004 my time at the dive center was tailing off, and I had not learned yet about legacy or transition, so with commercial diving taking on more and more of my time, In 2005, I choose to close the dive center and pursue commercial diving full time.
I travelled all over British Columbia, working on a variety of construction diving jobs. I always maintained loyalty to one company, but I worked for others when the opportunity presented itself. In 2009 I had a chance to purchase the company I had been working mainly for since 1997. This company was established and had consistent revenues for the past decade and a half. Once I purchased it by 2012, I had doubled the revenue and increased the amount of equipment. I continued working on this company, and by 2018 I had doubled the revenues again. For a purchase price of one year's net income over the next ten years, I managed over 4 million dollars in gross sales. I provided project management and diving services on projects worth from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of dollars—crew sizes of 3 to 14.
During all of this, in 2014, I took up formal training in coaching. I worked at this alongside the underwater construction and pursued opportunities as they were made available. Since my young childhood, I have been fascinated with why people make one choice over another. As a thought leader, my education has led me here, and I am now beginning to understand how it all works.
Here I am today, where I am in transition to take on more of the human development and less of the underwater construction.
