Take a look at what Sue had to say:
What’s the business advice you would give today to your younger self?
- Find the time to take an evening or online business class or maybe some type of continuing education just for fun. As your business grows there will be less time for you.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
- I was born and raised in Ajax although I have family ties to this area. My great-grandparents (and second-generation cousins) owned the furniture store "Dunlop's of Moonstone".
What’s your favourite part about what you do?
- I don't really have a "favourite part" of my job although I enjoy running into former clients (especially widows) only to find they have found a new companion. Love can happen again no matter what age.
What is your favourite part about being a member of MDBWA? If you are a new member, why did you join?
- I enjoy learning about the successes of each member.
