There has always been that question in my head, especially as I got older: "What am I going to do for the rest of my life"?
Sure I love cars and working on them, but when it came time to decide what career path to choose, I almost felt forced to choose something, anything. My grades in high school kinda limited my choices, and after taking 3 years off to work, I decided to go ahead and apply for AST (Automotive Service Technology) at SAIT. I was hesitant at first that working on cars as a career would ruin my hobby and passion for cars, but the next 2 years would change my life for the better.
When you surround yourself with like-minded individuals who share the same passion and same common goal in life, the possibilities are endless. I met David and Jesse at SAIT and we instantly clicked. The intertwined past, common interests, and the connections that we had before even meeting made it seem like this was all meant to be. We all shared the common idea that we shouldn't spend the rest of our lives working to benefit someone else's dream, but rather, put in the work and effort required to help us reach our own.
This past summer was the best summer of my life. Not only did we attend car shows across Western Canada, we were featured at every single one. Not to mention the unbelievable experience of driving our pride and joys all across Canada. But people actually came out to the shows to meet us. Just a group of friends with cool cars. Seeing the love and support from the fans and realizing the kind of inspiration we have on them is enough motivation for me to keep pushing forward. To keep working on myself and my own goals and aspirations.
Success is commonly measured by wealth and belongings. But if I speak from experience, this kind of success is immeasurable. I am rich in experiences and good times and my goal with this brand is to inspire others to pursue what they are passionate in. One thing you'll never get back in life is your time, so live every second with purpose and passion, and the universe will reward you.
